New entry: natal plum, carissa grandiflora

We have a new addition:a photograph of the natal plum, provided by Nelyn Tiongson of Baguio city. Something remarkable about this plant are the leaves which has a thorn at each end. The scientific name was provided by Buner Bune who is a landscapist working in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. According to Buner, the flower is sweet smelling and the fruit is edible! Click on the wikipedia link below for more information.
