Live Plant With Good Root - Fresh From Our Garden

(You Will Receive 1 Plant - 3 Feet or Taller - Ship in 3 Gal Pot )



It is a medium size tree with many uses; food (sweet pods), firewood, honey, fodder, soap oil, tannin, hedges and shade; it can survive hostile climates. Thin spines are in pairs at the base of leaves. Leaves

are deciduous. However, new leaf growth coincides with the loss of old leaves, giving the tree an evergreen appearance. The flowers are in small white heads 1/2" in diameter. The pods are pinkish, about 5" long,

and become spiral as they mature. Pods contain a pulp that is variously

sweet and acid, commonly white but also red. The seed and pulp are made

into a sweet drink and eaten roasted or fresh. Fruits are eaten raw, and commonly used in the preparation of beverages. In India the seeds are used fresh or in curries.

Frequently Asked Questions

I got a notification that my order was shipped, but it says pre-transit. When will it ship?

Orders say "shipped" when we print out labels for shipping, but please give it about 1-2 weeks to process and actually ship to you. This timeframe is only an estimate that allows us to care and ready the plant for shipping and for actual shipping time. Thank you for understanding during these hard times.

My plant came in but it is not in good condition! What should I do?

Sorry we cannot guarantee live plant during transit due to many factors.
If it arrived in bad shape, we'll refund or send a replacement but you need to let us know within 5 business days with some pics for us to claim insurance.
