Rain Tree

Lonchocarpus capassa
 

 

 

 

 

The seed germinates fairly well. Ripe yellow fruits are picked and placed in a bag. The fruit is then pounded and the seed planted whilst still fresh. Light, aerated soil is preferred in a sunny, protected location. The seed takes about 3 weeks to germinate. Seedlings are sensitive to frost, do not like much water and are sensitive to insect attack.
