Himalayan Balsam Seed Pods

Himalayan Balsam Seed Pods
These are the seed pods, or fruit capsules as they are sometimes known, of the Himalayan Balsam plant (Impatiens glandulifera) which was introduced to Europe in the 19th century and has now become invasive on river banks and other natural areas. The seed pods explode when ripe, scattering the seeds in a wide area and you can cause this to happen just by lightly touching a very ripe one. Seen near Scotmans Flash, Wigan.
