Tambourissa quadrifida is a striking tree, with cauliflorus flowers coming straight out of the trunk. The male flowers look like small red starfish covered in white paint marks. The female flowers look like a small wooden bell that takes the form of a small pot when it turns into a fruit. The fruit gives the tree its common name of "monkey’s chamber pot" (pot sam zacot). When ripe the walls of the chamber pot open disgorging black seeds covered in bright orange flesh.
