GATHERING RAINFOREST FRUIT

$235.00

Tall rain-green and deciduous trees tower over the closed canopy and many woody lianas and vines entwine around tree trunks and climb up to the canopy.  A number of vines found in the rainforest bear edible fruit. One of these is guyu which produces a bright red berry that is roasted before it is eaten.

Rainforest Aboriginal tribes were noted for climbing trees, yugu in Jirrbal, to gather fruit. They also climbed trees to find birds, marsupials, grubs, insects, honey from bees – often called “sugar bag” – seeds and the nectar from flowers. They would use a knotted loop of lawyer cane to assist them in climbing. Sometimes footholds were cut into the trees.
