This African Fruit Produces the World’s Most Intense Natural Color. The tiny, rock-hard fruits of Pollia condensata, a wild plant that grows in the forests of Ethiopia, Mozambique, Tanzania and other African countries, can’t be eaten raw, cooked or turned into a beverage. In Western Uganda & elsewhere, though, the plant’s small metallic fruits have long been used for decorative purposes because of an unusual property:They stay a vibrant blue color for years-even decades after they've been pickedTara Borman
