So, a setting I'm brainstorming is basically a tribal world, with Hunter-gatherers, animism, and the like.
One of the features I want to add, to make it stand out from our own world is the existence of megaflora, like giant trees, or fruits the size of houses.
Like, instead of growing a bunch of normal sized crops, you can grow one or two mega crops to feed the whole tribe.
Also, this just came to me, but I could see religion playing a role where the tribe tries to please the spirits so that some plants will grow to giant size. If the spirits are angered, the plant doesn't grow or fails to reach that size.
I'm not familiar with the average size of IRL tribes, but the average size for a tribe in this setting is a couple thousand people. They are baseline humans. The plants can sustain them for the same amount of type that an entire harvest of normal crops can.
There is magic in the setting, but so far it's very barebones, so I need to figure out how much of an impact it has on megaflora, if any. The practitioners of magic are known as shamans, and they serve as mediums between the human world and the spiritual realm, and specialize in healing.
This led to me trying to think through the implications of such plants. Could plants that big sustain a village or tribe sized population?
