A Single Figs Tree With Two Sets Of Fruits !!!


Try to look at the above picture and find something that be of special interest to swiftlet farmers.

A small hint, look at the fruits on all the tree trunks and how many colours are there?

The above picture was taken on June 19th 2012.

Before I go any further I need to inform you that all the trunks in this picture were from a single tree.

If they are the same tree how come the two of them were with ripe fruits while the other two were with green fruits?

Try to look at these pictures taken for comparison:




Let me try to give my opinion about the two different coloured fruits on the same tree.

The reddish coloured fruits were soft.

When you squeezed them open you will see lots of insects still staying at home and willing to fly out.  I think they need some initiation or push to fly out of their home sweet home.

There is a strong possibilities that they were waiting for the green fruit to be big enough for them to breed in them.

The key point is that the tree have this smart idea of how to maximise the chance to pollinate the flowers inside it's fruits.

Once these insects flew out of their home they will start to find a home to lay their eggs.

Remember before they find their way out of the fruits, they have already harvest adequate pollen and stored in a special sack located at their abdomen.

They need not find a partner to fertilize their eggs.

The moment they hatched from those special sacks the male will be the first to get out.

The moment those female warps climb out they will be fertilized by these male warps.

The female warps only function after leaving their home is to find another suitable fruit to lay their eggs.

Those green coloured figs fruits seems to ready to receive those female warps.

In this manner the chances to be fertilize is higher and the warps will continue the fertilization cycle.

See how smart those trees are?

We should be as smart as them.

By the way where do you think the brain of those trees?

I don't have the answer but I know we human do have a so call head and our brain is said to be more than one pound in weight.

So think carefully about this article.

Use you brain and be smarter than a Figs Tree.
