Too many Berries

Cornwall Park in Auckland is home to a few Wonder Trees (Idesia polycarpa) or Igiri trees. They're native to East Africa and classified as an exotic in New Zealand. The Kereru love their bright red berries. Wonder Trees are dioecious, which means that individual trees are separate sexes, male or female. Both male and female wonder trees produce flowers but only females produce fruit.
