from Suva and Nausori market for a period of four weeks. Varieties of
were identified in each sample. Distinctive
morphological features were identified, illustrated and described within the variety.
is the only
variety identified. There were only five distinctive morphological forms discovered based on the external features in this variety.
These forms were harvested from different locations suggesting that different habitat/environmental conditions influence the
different growth forms. In conclusion,
is highly morphologically plastic species influenced by environmental factors
