Lotus Seed Pod
The seed cup is commonly used in flower arrangements

also known as: Lotus nuts, Makhana.

Lotus develops straight seed pods and each pod contains approximately 20 seeds that reach maturity within 40 days. Lotus seeds are nut like round to oval shaped seeds present in row within the dark green colored lotus seed head. They are green colored when fresh and turn cream to yellow color when dried. The shell becomes harder as much that it can be removed as a coating. The dried form is better available in markets comparatively. The seeds are extensively used in East Asian cuisine and as a medicine in China.
Lotus seeds can be eaten raw either in fresh or in dried form.

Hello Tsilla :)

This plant looks wonderfully and very originally, first time I see her.
Pretty, natural colours, light and splendid sharpness.
Very showy composition and splendid realization!

With best wishes.

Hi Tsilla,
A very attractive floral composition with this Lotus Seed Pot. A wonderful natural sphere with so many small colorful spheres. Perfect shallow focusing and precise exposure.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Hello Tsilla

It looks like a pizza stuffed with olives! I have eaten this in Korea and its served pickled. Its okay but I wouldn't buy it. I just ate it at a Korean restaurant to be polite. Good colour & sharpness. Tfs!

Hi Tsilla,
This is SO UNIQUE! I've never seen a lotus pod. Very interesting and well displayed. Great natural colors and details.. TFS Julie

The first time I saw lotus seed pod I thought it was plastic inserted into the flower! Great macro with good lighting and wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
