After pollination, the flower closes to protect the developing seed within, which increases tension on its spring as it grows. Fully dried, the outer shell can barely hold in the pressure from the seed, causing a slight disturbance to set off a chain reaction of exploding pods. Golf ball sized and spring-tailed, seeds disperse with enough force to leave a decent sided bruise on unsuspecting victims. Despite the danger in harvesting, the coil fibers make excellent tensile material for any number of crafts and the seed has found its way into many dishes, savored for its refreshing, earthy crunch!
