Fruits, nuts, leaves and crackers

Melinjo (gnetum gnemon) is a remarkable tree that I'm surprised isn't better known yet outside it's homelands.

It's a member of an ancient lineage of plants the gnetales, family gnetaceae with one genus gnetum and 30-35 species found across the tropical regions of the world.
