Capparis cartilaginea

The characteristic fruit of the Capparis cartilaginea, likely eaten by the many goats if found.

The morning shade from the steep cliff at the northern end of Shuab beach of socotra provides great opportunities for many plant species. I found this specimen leaning against a rock close to the sea, but others thrive in cracks on the cliff face itself. Some even hanging from overhangs.
