- Description: Detailed view of the fruit of a pandanus tree. Its original color is green but turns orange and then red as it grows. While beautifully colored, the fruit cannot be eaten, yet the seeds are edible in the form of oil. Pandanus usually grows along shorelines as pictured here, creating an excellent environment for fish. Their leaves are also used to make baskets, mats, and rope.
