Fall Fruits

Fall is the time when you find fleshy fruits in the hammock, the food for resident & migratory birds and other wildlife.

Look for

  • the tiny magenta fruits encircling the stems of the aptly named beautyberry (Callicapra americana)
  • the ripe burgundy berries of wild coffee (Psychotria nervosa)
  • the dark fruits of the straight-trunked lancewood trees (Ocotea coriacea) that grace the hammock loop entrance
