The Magnificent Medieval Dick Tree: A New Discovery by RainstormDragon

From BnF MS Fr. 25526, a 14th-century copy of the Romance of the RoseNo, your eyes do not deceive you. The above is a genuine medieval manuscript in which a woman is harvesting a basket full of dicks from a tree.
Well, one can only presume if they weren't harvested while firm, they would go soft and eventually fall off the tree? I really don't know.

Apparently this sort of thing happened often in medieval times, because backtracking through links, I found a post that included this carving as well:

But that's not all! This has happened on at least three other types of trees:

So yeah. I learned something tonight. Penises grow on trees.
Nature. Well then..

**This discovery was first made by my clever friend RainstormDragon. I found it so silly I had to share it. I take no claim for it. You can find the original post here.
