Israel has Jewish immigrants from 63 countries around the world. Israel may be more of a melting pot than the United States.
Along the way those immigrants brought their traditions, recipes and SEEDS. Israel grows fruits, vegetables and flowers from all over the world.
And trees. Down the street from where I live I saw trees with huge hanging brown seed pods, weird like nothing I’d ever seen. Turned out to be South African Sausage trees.
On a trip to Jerusalem I encountered the following. I’ve never seen anything like it before. Anyone know what it is or where it’s from? (Huge down hanging yellow flowers?)
