Kiwifruit Mystery
Found in: Observations and pictures


Who would have guessed, that the image shows a kiwi fruit Actinidia deliciosa? Honestly, I had problems identifying the individual cells under the microscope. I guess that this is due to the fact that I had to squeeze the fruit between the slide and the cover slip, destroying many of the cells. I could clearly see interesting bubble shaped structures, but the function is not clear (chlorophasts? They are green, after all.) I stacked several pictures, to increase the depth of filed, and I also improved the contrast. The result is an image that looks at least as refreshing as the whole fruit…
