General Plant Information: Terminalia catappa also known as tropical almond is a large tropilcal tree in the leadwood tree family, Combretaceae, native to Asia, Australia, the Pacific and Madagascar. The tree grows to 35 metres (115 feet) tall, with an upright, symmetrical crown and horizontal branches. The fruit are corky and light, and dispersed by water. As the tree gets older, its crown becomes more flattened to form a spreading, vase shape. Its branches are distinctively arranged in tiers. The leaves are large, 15–25 cm (6–9 in) long and 10–14 cm (4–5 in) broad, ovoid, glossy dark green, and leathery. They are dry-season deciduous; before falling, they turn pinkish-reddish or yellow-brown.

T. catappa is widely grown in tropical regions of the world as an ornamental tree, grown for the deep shade its large leaves provide. The fruit is edible, tasting slightly acidic. The seeds are edible raw or cooked, when ripe and the source of its 'almond' common names, but are small and difficult to extract.

Information about our seeds: Most of our seeds come from traditional crops that Puerto Rican farmers have cultivated for many years. These seeds are not GMO, do not chemically or biologically treated and are processed with minimal mechanization. 

Guarantee: Seeds are living products that depend on many factors such as proper planting time and technique, depth of sowing, soil, proper germination environment, fertility, disease control, insect control, and reasonable weather for direct sown seeds. If any of these factors are not right, it may cause the seed to not perform and because most, if not all, of these are out of our control, most of the success of these seeds is in the hands of the grower. If they have been cared for properly and still fail to grow, we will replace the seed, one time.
