Only picked during the spring season, the exotic plant commonly known as the falconet's jewel produces a bitter tasting fruit, though some people enjoy eating these small purple fruits regardless of their bitter taste. Falconet’s Jewel originates from the highest cliffs in the Vultaro Mountains which are located in the Regalian Archipelago. The fruit plant earns its name from the fact that only falcons are able to obtain its fruits, making it difficult to get ahold of. Falcons often collect fruit from the plant to feed their young.
The falconet’s jewel originates from the highest cliffs of the Vultaro Mountains. The falconet’s jewel was discovered in the spring season roughly about 220 AC when an expeditioner came across a recently deserted falcon nest containing some leftover falconet’s jewel fruit. Curious, the expeditioner felt obligated to try and taste the small fruit only to discover its bitter taste. Still, the man was inspired, and after remembering the fruit’s peculiar taste and appearance, he set out to search for more of the fruit. However, he had little success in finding it anywhere else. Deciding to try out again in the other seasons, the man had again. met failure. He finally decided to wait until spring came again.
A year later, the expeditioner returned, encountering another falcon’s nest containing more of the same fruit. However, with its inhabitants still present, the man was forced to hatch up a plan to ambush the falcon parent and steal the fruit from the nest. After a successful attempt, the expeditioner recorded his discoveries about the plant’s fruit and how it was presumably available during the spring season only. The expeditioner continued to collect more of the fruit throughout the rest of the spring, before selling it to merchants who showed interest in buying the peculiar tasting fruit. Today, the falconet’s jewel fruit is still collected in the same way as it had been before, with falcons setting out to reap the falconet’s jewel of its fruit to feed their young.
The fruit plant earned its name from the falcons who inhabit the Vultaro Mountains, who reap the fruit plant of its fruit in the spring season so that they may feed their young. This evidence is backed up by the expeditioner's recordings on his discoveries of the fruit. So naturally, it only made sense to give it a name such as “Falconet’s Jewel.”
