A plant, found on the plains of Vulcan. They’re low-lying bright green shrubs, producing small olive-green berries. These are edible to Vulcans and Humans, but are protected by thick spines which can tear through clothing. The spines also inject a painful neural toxin. This causes intense cramps and vomiting, before inducing a strength-sapping fever which fogs the mind and slows the reflexes. The spines, if carefully removed intact, are sturdy enough to be used as darts in a blowgun weapon. Many Vulcan tribes indeed used them as such, prior to the Time of Awakening and its cultural reformation.
