The Pointleaf Manzanita is very distinctive due to its red bark. Translated it means "Little Apple". What the video and you will see why. Manzanita can be found near Windy Point on Mt.Lemmon and in the chaparral of the Huachucas. In this video produced by Mike Foster, Vincent Pinto, biologist, talks about harvesting the fruit of this special shrub.
