    I’m sure a nice stream of water would lead the way to the river this morning. When you say testicular seed pod, does this mean it’s a male plant but stores seeds? Or is it the seed pods are merely shaped like testicles?

    Or perhaps even that the seed capsules just grow in pairs. Did you know that the word Avocado actually means testicles and was so named because the fruit grows in pairs?
