Arum Lily Fruit

by EarthHart in Plant Kingdom

Arum maculatum is a common woodland plant species of the Araceae family. It is widespread across temperate northern Europe and is known by an abundance of common names including wild arum, lords and ladies, devils and angels, cows and bulls, cuckoo-pint, Adam and Eve, bobbins, naked boys, starch-root and wake robin. "Pint" comes from 'pintle' Old English for penis. The fruit is poisonous, but because of its acrid taste & burning of the tongue when first bitten into, little harm is done as little is ingested.
