Brief Summary

Read full entry


This large tree is extremely long-lived and slow-growing (5). The timing of flowering and fruiting depends on the location of the tree, but in Mexico the small white flowers bloom in April and last until June, and the fruit capsules ripen in January through March the following year (2). When released, the numerous winged seeds are dispersed by the wind (4).
