The soapberry tree’s fruit are exactly what the name implies, berry shaped soap balls. Their outer shell has the texture of hardened plastic that turns soapy once ribbed with water. We found the tree on one of the side streets of Abadiania.
About Hans Rippel
After having lived in six countries on four continents and traveled to over 40 countries on six continents, I now have come to see myself as a citizen of the world. In that spirit, I celebrate diversity and I am eager to continuously learn about myself and the world I live in. On my journey in life, I have obtained a B.A. in psychology with positive psychology as my main passion and interest as well as a minor in Religious Studies and a Buddhist Studies certificate. In addition, I am continuously exploring how to optimize mental and physical health to enhance the quality of life for both myself and the people around me. My interests include reading educational non-fiction books about psychology, physical health, sciences, philosophy, and religion. Among my hobbies, I enjoy playing squash, swimming, running, rock climbing, hiking, biking, and general physical exercise.

As far as I know it is not edible.
