MAA Found Math for the Week of September 26, 2011

MAA Found Math: Julian F. Fleron (Westfield State University) took these photos of the fruits of a Kousa Dogwood tree on the Westfield State campus. Notice the irregular pentagons and hexagons that cover the surface of the fruit which, according to Fleron, is quite tasty when ripe.
