Gopher apple (Licania michauxii) is a low growing plant that produces a fleshy edible fruit. The plant regenerates well after fires and can be found in dry upland areas frequented by gopher tortoises. The fruit is a favorite of the gopher tortoise, hence the name, gopher apple. Other wildlife also like the fruit, which is also edible for humans. It is rather sweet and pleasant tasting.
