Modern observers have discovered groves of Brosimum Alicastrum in and around Mayan ruins, leading archeologists and ethnobotanists to conclude that Ancient Mayan's cultivated Capomo orchards as a staple crop, and term the widely utilized forest food, "Maya Nut." According to Charles Peters novel hypothesis, Capomo-loving frugivorous bats congregated in and around the ruins, discarding the seeds after devouring their succulent flesh. In this scenario, the ancient Mayan Capomo orchards transform into bat-disperesed forest gardens. And so it goes; Capomo controversy, archeology and research march ever forward.
