pollia condensata is a rare plant that produces a dazzling blue berry,
‘the sh


niest living thing’, said a paper. the paper


the shiniest living material from


depths of a forest: ‘the bright blue colouration of this fruit is more
intense than any previously described biological


and, extraordinarily, this colour comes about by a trick of the light in
the berry’s transparent skin, not


the presence of a blue pigment.’ it contains no flesh, just seeds,
resembling other juicy berries while preserving energy


its iridescent guise, changing from different angles.


berry remains vivid for centuries after falling from the plant.
