Monstera is a tropical plant from the Araceae family. Its name, as one might guess, comes from the Latin meaning “abnormal” because of its odd-looking, perforated leaves that are often punched through with holes. The best-known variety is Monstera Deliciosa, or Mexican Breadfruit, in reference to its corncob-shaped fruit. The fruit is said to taste like a combination of pineapple, banana, and mango). It’s not all delicious. However, the rest of the plant is poisonous and eating the fruit before it’s ripe can cause irritation the mouth.
