I was looking up “quince” on wikipedia, and got sidetracked to the page on bael fruit, which contained the following paragraph:
“Bael is the only member of the monotypic genus Aegle. It is a mid-sized, slender, aromatic, armed, gum-bearing tree growing up to 18 meters tall.”
In this context, does “armed” mean it has thorns? Or what? Thanks.
(yes, I’m leaving this query wide open for Rambo jokes. You’re welcome. )
