This is a photo of the fruit of the Platanus Orientalis or Oriental Plane, a large deciduous tree that can be found in Turkey, we have one growing by our house. The fruits are purely for decoration and I often use the fruits in my Christmas table decorations, they are good o-natural or sprayed silver or gold. The leaves and bark are used in medicine. The twigs and roots produce a dye used in fabric. The wood is know as lacewood and is used for indoor furniture.
