Moonmelon (scientifically knows as asidus). This fruit grows in some parts of Japan and is known for its vibrant blue colour. This fruit's party trick is that it can switch flavours after you eat it. Everything sour will taste sweet, everything salty will taste bitter, and it gives water a strong orange-like taste! Bucket list fruit! by stargateone3

The ancient text has no known title, no known author, and is written in no known language: what does it say and why does it have many astronomy illustrations? The mysterious book was once bought by an emperor, forgotten on a library shelf, sold for thousands of dollars, and later donated to Yale. Possibly written in the 15th century, the over 200-page volume is known most recently as the Voynich Manuscript, after its (re-)discoverer in 1912. by henrietta

'Silver Shimmers', (zones 4 to 9) is a stunner for shaded areas. This plant thrives in woodland conditions, with moist, rich, well-drained soil in shade, and grows 1 to 2 feet tall and wide. Give it a site with good air circulation, as some Pulmonaria are prone to mildew, though I've never seen it on this variety. It blooms blue in spring. by roslyn

Binturongs, which are sometimes known as bearcats (though not a bear or a cat) are members of the family Viverridae, which also includes civets and genets. They are primarily frugivores (fruit eaters), but have been known to eat a wide variety of foods including small animals. Binturongs have a long prehensile tail that can be used during climbing or to provide extra grip and balance whilst sleeping in trees. Perhaps one of the most striking features of the binturong species is their scent, which has been described by some as being akin to popcorn. This species is found in forests throughout South-East Asia. by mry3
