Tree in 2 x 5 inch coco fibre plug

A versatile tree that grows in a wide variety of locations and soils. This species prefers moist soil in a part shade to full sun location. Its deep tap root highlights the need to pick the planting location well, as significant growing space is needed. Seeds are edible and can be eaten raw or cooked; they are often used in breads and pies. Many animals like squirrels rely on the sweet, high-fat nuts.
