 Nephelium rambutan-ake, Nephelium philippense, Nephelium mutabile, Nephelium intermedium, Litchi ramboutan-ake
Family: Sapindaceae
Pulasan, Bulala, Ngoh-khonsan, Ramboutan-ake
Origin: Southeast Asia
Big tree > 20 ftFull sunRegular waterEdible

The Pulasan, or Poolasan is closely allied to the Rambutan and sometimes confused with it.

Dioecious tree reaching 30-45 feet (9-14 m), with a short trunk and a wide, rounded crown. Alternate, compound leaves with 2-5 pairs of glossy leaflets. Flowers small, greenish, in branched axillary or terminal panicles. The fruit is round to ovoid, about 2-3 inches (5-7.5 cm) in length, with a bumpy red, purple or yellow peel. The pulp is white or yellowish, translucent, juicy, sweet and aromatic. Delicious fruit, sweeter than the rambutan and lychee, but very rare outside of southeast Asia. An ultra-tropical species, needing lots of water for much of the year, and a humid climate.

Pulasan is propagated by seed, grafting or air layers. Seed propagation is not usually preferred, as the trees may be males or have fruit of inferior quality. Both bud and approach grafting are used. Grafted trees begin to produce fruit at about 3-5 years.

The Pulasan is from the humid tropics, and grows well where abundant moisture is available year round, although it does tolerate brief periods of drought. The best growth is achieved in fertile, well drained soils, from sea level to about 1,000 feet (305 m) elevation. Regular fertilization will also improve growth and fruiting.

The flesh of ripe fruits is eaten raw or made into jam. Boiled or roasted seeds are used to prepare a cocoa-like beverage.

Pappea capensis, Jacket Plum, Indaba Tree, Bushveld Cherry

Click to see full-size image Pappea capensis
Family: Sapindaceae
Jacket Plum, Indaba Tree, Bushveld Cherry
Origin: South Africa
Small tree 10-20 ftFull sunModerate waterDry conditionsEthnomedical plant.
Plants marked as ethnomedical and/or described as medicinal, are not offered as medicine but rather as ornamentals or plant collectibles.

The jacket plum can tolerate both cold and heat as well as prolonged periods of drought. It may be used as a specimen tree or as a focal point. Its attractive pale grey stem often has patches of darker colors. It is useful as a street tree or for shade in parking lots as it does not have an aggressive root system. It is also well suited to being employed as part of a mixed screen or wind barrier or as part of a natural bushclump in a wildlife-friendly garden or in large landscapes such as parks and golf courses. As it seldom attains tremendous dimensions it also lends itself to being used in townhouse gardens. It develops a closed, dense crown under cultivation in areas of higher rainfall, which creates a cool shady place for a garden bench.

The delicious and very juicy fruit with a tart flavour is used to make preserve, jelly, vinegar and an alcoholic drink.

Fragrant non-drying golden yellow oil is extracted from the roasted seeds. There are reports of it being used for oiling rifles. It is also used as a purgative and for lubrication, as a cure for ringworm, to restore hair, as well as for making soap.

Leaves, bark and the oil extracted from the seed are used medicinally. The wood is hard, light brown with a reddish tint, tough and heavy with a twisted grain. There is apparently little difference between the heartwood and the sapwood. The stems seldom attain significant girth and therefore do not yield much useable wood. It is, however, used to make sticks, poles, cattle yokes, furniture and kitchen utensils. This tree is still used as an important source of traditional medicine today.

Guarana - rare exotic fruit vine. It is a climbing vine that grows in the Amazon basin in Brazil just south of the equator. The fruits, when open, show 1 or 2 black seeds partially covered by white aril, resembling eyes.

The traditional method of preparing guarana is to roast and grind the seeds with a little water, then roll the resulting paste into sticks.

Soapberry flowers are small and usually whitish, in broad many flowered panicles with 4-5 sepals and petals. Flowers bloom in late spring, and form large, dense, intensely, fragrant terminal clusters.

Soapberry is very tolerant of soils with limited moisture and low fertility.

The drupes, which lather when combined with water, were once used in varnish, floor was, and soap. In some parts of Mexico soapberry is still preferred for washing hair and delicate clothing. As a soap it also has medicinal effects, helping to relieve itching and prevent the spread of various tineas and scalp seborrhea.
