Re: Alocasia macrorrhiza berry color

Having just experienced fruiting for the first time this year,
I can tell you they are red.  They are not "scarlet", but more 
orange red, like a ripe tomato.

Interestingly, when I opened the fruits to remove the seeds,
the pulp itself was very red and had a a waxy substance.  
It also smelled very appetizing, believe it or not, somewhere 
between a ripe tomato and a ripe passion fruit.

Each fruit had one seed, although one contained two.  The seeds
look exactly like okra seeds.
