ほうずき Houzuki Flowers


This is an interesting flower from Grandma's house called "Houzuki". The "flowers are paper thin and mostly hollow. If you open one, there is a tiny little fruit inside. It looks like a tiny kaki fruit(persimmon). There's another variedty at grandma's house that has a tiny tomatoe like fruit and is edible. The flowers look like tiny paper lanterns. So cute.
