 Gustavia superba
Family: Lecythidaceae
Membrillo, Heaven Lotus
Origin: Panama
Small tree 10-20 ftFull sunRegular waterPink flowers

A medium-sized tree with a straight trunk that is often unbranched, with just one cluster of leaves at the top of the trunk (like a palm).

Flowers are large and purple, with many stamen arranged in a ring, few in number. From March to June, when they are mature, a few flowers can easily be found on ground beneath adult trees. Fruits are round, green, hard, larger and heavier than a baseball. Inside are a few large seeds. The fruits often remain on the ground for weeks, rotting and collecting mold.
