Marabu Bastard

December 6, 2012

This bastard bush is called marabu. Its the Cuban equivalent of thistles or gorse. It grows like buggery and is a bugger to kill apparently. I have read much about it being a bane for Cuban farmers It must be repeatedly cut back until the plant exhausts itself or must be sprayed with weedkiller. Much of the able land in Cuba is infested with Marabu. The lack of access to weedkiller for many Cuban farmers makes disposing of it a long drawn out chore.  Notice the sharp little thorns on the bastard.P1050540 P1050545 P1050546
