It’s that time of year again…Cum Trees





cumtree3

You know the trees…those white trees that line city sidewalks and for whatever reason people even chose to have them in their yards.
They look nice enough for a tree…But has that smell that hits you like a punch in the face, the smell that triggers the thought “Am I smack dab in the middle of an orgy?” and/or “why does it smell like cum and rancid pussy?”. You start to look around, and then you see em….CUM TREES!

“Cum Tree” is not the official name of these trees, no really, its not. The raunchy smelling trees are called the Bradford Pear (scientific name Pyrus calleryana). Apparently the trees are hard to kill, grow fast and can thrive in tough conditions….sounds like a penis to me, I guess its fitting that they smell like cum. I guess if you happen to live in an area that’s heavily populated with cum trees, you could think of it as smelling like bleach, instead of cum..ya know, to make yourself feel better.

here’s some sciency stuff about the smell of Cum Trees
Everything we smell — from bananas to pine needles — comes from molecules, usually made of volatile chemicals, meaning chemicals that evaporate easily. The molecules evaporate from the food or flower and travel into your nose, where they bind with receptors in our nose.

The compounds that make the Bradford Pear tree’s flowers smell are likely due to a type of chemical called amines, Dr. Eloy Rodriguez, a professor of plant biology at Cornell University, told Business Insider.

We come in contact with the smell of amines every day in the form of body odors, like under the arm pits.

The fishy odor produced by the Bradford Pear is likely a combination of two amines called trimethylamine and dimethylamine, according to Richard Banick, a botanical manager at Bell Flavors and Fragrances. Although perfumers know what chemicals produce the fishy smell (trimethylamine is often used an indicator of how fresh a fish is) they can’t be certain what causes the odor of the Bradford Pear, said Banick.

Plants that produce volatile amines, some that smell like rotting meat, use the gas either to attract flies who will then spread the flower’s pollen, or to ward off insects that might want to steal the nectar, said Rodriguez.

Rodgriquez suspects that the volatile compounds in the Bradford tree are there as attractants, and not necessarily to repel pollinators.

Later, the trees produce little green-yellow fruits that you cannot eat.
