A sour, juicy fruit from a desert region, the mult plant has evolved a fruit with a covering of long, thick bristles to protect it from its harsh environment. As the fruit ripens, the bristles begin to fall off, and the sour fruit attracts large animals that will disperse its seed. The plant puts all of its water and energy into producing the extremely juicy mult fruit, and so after producing a single fruit, it withers away. It has been used for its strong flavor as an additive to drinks for centuries.

The goodroop fruit also relies on animals to disperse its seeds, but its super minty taste is extremely unpleasant to all small, fruit-eating creatures on its native planet. Instead, its incredibly sticky, gooey outer coating traps small insect-like organisms to its surface, creating a tasty treat irresistible to larger carnivores, who can't digest the small pit of the fruit. Its powerful, minty flavor & cooling chemicals make it a popular ingredient in many dishes and desserts.

The spine-covered spikul fruit grows from a very tall, cactus-like plant. Instead of using them for defense, the spines serve a different purpose entirely; they act as perches for small flying animals that eat pest insects off of the plant. When harvested, the sturdy, colorful spines are removed prior to eating and can be used for many purposes, such as needles for fabric crafts, writing instruments, eating utensils, or just for decoration.

Irida Orb Fungus
Notable for its long, wood-like stalks, the Irida Orb is a transgenic fungus capable of rapidly changing its surface to its benefit. This is often seen as the fungus will change its surface darker or lighter in response to the amount of light it is receiving, to enable it to grow in a wide array of conditions that would otherwise be deadly.

A hearty plant known for flowering in the winter but is also crafted into a popular tea. The plant produces a stalk capable of pushing through dense snow, and deploys modified bracts that are both exceptionally dense and colorful. These are collected by a small species of snow crab in a mutualistic exchange: the crab receives insulating protection from the elements, and the thistle distributes its seeds much further.
