I always want to add an extra T when I write Yucca baccata, but no, two Cs and one T is correct. The specific epithet baccata is from Latin and means berry. The 6-8” long fleshy fruit look more like bananas than berries, so the common name banana yucca gets it right.

Anyway, I hope you’re getting some time away from your home and out into nature…out into the wild. Get out and make some biome memories and we’ll compare notes soon!

The photos are mine and taken at the base of the Winchester Mountains.
