Givat Ram, Jerusalem, Israel
Click here for a map that contains other items in the area

On the sign:
פלפלון בכות
Schinus molle

תפוצה טבעית: הרי האנדים (דרום אמריקה)

עלי העץ "הבוכיים" - תלויים כלפי מטה, אינם נשירים. העץ הוא נקבי. פרחיו הלבנים מבשילים לפירות ורדרדים, שטעמם מפולפל, למרות שהעץ אינו שייך למשפחת הפלפליים.

[הפאה השנייה של הקוביה]
[The second face of the cube]
California Pepper Tree
Schinus molle

Natural range: Andes Mountains (S. America)

These dandgling leaves remain year-round. Small white flowers produce, in this female tree, delicate pink fruits with a peppery taste. In spite of its name, it’s neither a native Californian nor a member of the pepper family.

[הפאה השלישית של הקוביה]
[The third face of the cube]
האם המראה של גזע העץ מזכיר לך משהו? מה?

[a question]
Does the look of this tree’s trunk remind you of anything? What?

[הפאה הרביעית של הקוביה]
[The fourth face of the cube]
[התשובה לשאלה]
יש מבקרים שהגזע מזכיר להם "משהו מיסתורי, עתיק", "לוחם סומו", "בליטות על פני הירח". (יבלות אלה נפוצות בסוג זה של עצים. הסיבה אינה ידועה).

[The Answer to the question]
Some visitors say the trunk reminds them of: Something ancient and mysterious, a Sumo wrestler, bumps on the moon surface. (The "bumps" are growths, common in this species, cause unknown.)
