Ebenopsis ebano, Pithecellobium ebano, Texas Ebony, Ebony Blackbead, Apples Earring

Click to see full-size image Ebenopsis ebano, Pithecellobium ebano
Family: Fabaceae
Subfamily: Mimosoideae
Texas Ebony, Ebony Blackbead, Apples Earring
Origin: Mexico, Southern Texas (USA)
Can be used for bonsaiLarge shrub 5-10 ftSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunModerate waterWhite/off-white flowersSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Ebenopsis is a small genus, with only 2 species found in the United States. Texas ebony flowers are yellow or cream-colored umbels about 2" in length borne in paniculate clusters on the end of twigs. They appear from June to August. The legumes turn from green to dark brown or black as they mature in the fall. The wood of Texas ebony is used for furniture and fence posts, and the seeds can be used as a coffee substitute (they are boiled when green or roasted when ripe). Legumes are usually picked by hand from the trees and air-dried in the sun. The seed coats of Texas ebony are very hard, and few seeds will germinate without scarification.

Pithecellobium dulce, Inga dulcis, Mimosa dulcis, Bread-and-Cheeese, Madras Thorn, Manila Tamarind

Click to see full-size image Pithecellobium dulce, Inga dulcis, Mimosa dulcis
Family: Fabaceae
Subfamily: Mimosoideae
Bread-and-Cheeese, Madras Thorn, Manila Tamarind
Origin: Tropical America
Small tree 10-20 ftFull sunModerate waterWhite/off-white flowersDeciduousEdibleThorny or spinySubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

It is a medium size tree with many uses; food (sweet pods), firewood, honey, fodder, soap oil, tannin, hedges and shade; it can survive hostile climates. Thin spines are in pairs at the base of leaves. Leaves are deciduous. However, new leaf growth coincides with the loss of old leaves, giving the tree an evergreen appearance. The flowers are in small white heads 1/2" in diameter. The pods are pinkish, about 5" long, and become spiral as they mature. Pods contain a pulp that is variously sweet and acid, commonly white but also red. The seed and pulp are made into a sweet drink and eaten roasted or fresh. Fruits are eaten raw, and commonly used in the preparation of beverages. In India the seeds are used fresh or in curries. The pods are relished by monkeys and livestock. The flowers are attractive to bees as source of pollen. The resulting honey is of high quality. Although the pods are attractive fodder to most animals, the leaves are browsed but not considered an important animal fodder. The tree is used extensively as a shade tree with a great tolerance of arid and harsh sites. It can be managed as a hedge. Trimming increases the occurrence of thorns. Trees will survive brief frosts as well as temperatures well above 100F.
