Nein. See my earlier posts. Its baccy, and that pic looks almost identical to a place in Cuba where said Flatal cavallier activity took place.

Yes...the very place. I rode up into those hills with a farmer who spoke no English, and my Spanish is non-existent.

I'd managed to get him to take me out on horses for an agreed sum of $20. At the top he stopped and wanted a chat. It was awkward. He was winking at me and saying something like "los chicos cubanos son muy bellos". I looked blankly at him. He continued, more emphatically. More blank expressions and palm up gestures from me. This went on for about a minute until he finally said, with a look of disappointment, "sexo". I realised he was expressing his admiration for the beauty of Cuban women. Belatedly, I nodded my wholehearted agreement, but he looked crestfallen.

It's grown here, too, probably for the same reason that the UK developed a taste for port.  There are drying sheds within 50k of our place.

Obviously too challenging. I was puzzling over what sort of nut it could be. I've now come to the conclusion that it's not a nut. But I don't know what it is.

Nutmeg?  Which I believe isn't really a nut.

We've done capers, and it isnt nutmeg.

I'd suggest looking at the leaves as a clue as to the type of plant, then taking it from there....

Dr Google claims it is a fig. Dr Google (on this occasion) is wrong.

Looks like rose leaves but they're too glaucous.

I'm reckoning it doesn't make an oil and that's why I don't recognise it.

Leaves look like some sort of bean. Field?

Figs have leaves large enough and appropriately shaped to shield a grown man's modesty...

Chickpea! At last, a really useful crop.  :thumbsup: In fact a truly pro-flatulative crop!
