Entandrophragma caudatum
Family: Meliaceae
Mountain Mahogany, Half-peeled Banana
Origin: South Africa
Big tree > 20 ftFull sunModerate waterSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Mountain Mahogany is a large Southern African tree belonging to the Mahogany family and found in eastern and north eastern South Africa, Swaziland, Botswana, Angola, the Caprivi Strip region of Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Malawi. This is a large deciduous tree, found at low altitudes in river valleys, but also in open woodland on rocky slopes and ridges.

The fruit of this species is remarkable and when green has the form of a cigar- or club-shaped capsule. When mature the five woody, closely lenticellate, pale brown valves curve back from the thickened tip, leaving a central column intact with impressions of the seeds - in overall appearance that of a half-peeled banana. Seeds are large and winged, and carried some distance from the tree by wind.
