|Squid Fruit Tree|
|Behind the scenes|
Squid fruit tree (Na'vi name: fyìpmaut) is a massive jungle tree that produces a large seed-pod covered in spiny blue protrusions. The seed pod is also notable for its eight 60cm-long tentacle-like fruit stalks that grow from the bottom.
Ecology[edit | edit source]
A staple of the Na'vi diet, the fruit harvested from the squid fruit tree is very versatile and can be prepared in many ways.
Ethnobotany[edit | edit source]
Eaten raw, these tubular fruits have a consistency of a mid 20th-century Terran fruit snack and has a slightly salty rhubarb like taste. The fruit can also be cut into wheels and dried and cured into a portable fruit-leather that Na'vi travelers often take with them on long journeys.
