    Deciduous tropical tree up to 20 m tall with wide and spreading foliage, especially in isolated specimens. The secondary branches are inserted orthogonally onto the main trunk, giving the foliage a characteristic umbrella shape. Oval leaves, up to 20-30 cm large, dark green in colour. Small yellow flowers gathered in apical inflorescences. The fruits are similar to almonds, but are not edible.

    Pedoclimatic needs

    It adapts to all types of soil as long as it is loose and not too rich. It should be planted in regions with a mild climate where temperatures do not fall below +3/+4°c. As an adult it tolerates drought and prefers sunny exposures.

    Sowing

    In spring after making a lateral incision on the seed.
