Angophora costata, Angophora lanceolata , Smooth-barked apple, Rose Gum, Rose Apple, Sydney Red Gum

Angophora costata, Angophora lanceolata

Smooth-barked apple, Rose Gum, Rose Apple, Sydney Red Gum
Family: Myrtaceae
Origin: Eastern Australia
Big tree > 20 ftFull sunModerate waterWhite/off-white flowers

The genus Angophora is very close to Eucalyptus, and can be distinguished easily by its opposite leaves. The old bark is shed in spring in large flakes with the new salmon-pink bark turning to pale grey before the next shedding. The tree has a handsome, rugged ornamental appearance and its young red tips are often used in floral arrangements.

Annona diversifolia, Annona ilama, Illama, Annona blanca

Annona diversifolia

Annona ilama, Illama, Annona blanca
Family: Annonaceae
Origin: in Mexico, El Salvador, and Guatemala
Big tree > 20 ftSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterEdibleUltra tropical, min. temperature 55F

It is a rare Anonna. Large fruit, sometimes over 6" long, having similarities in both shape and size to the Annona cherimola. The rind tends to be either green or pink-purple, with white or pinkish flesh respectively. Some varieties have deep red flesh. Flavor is said to be excellent in many varieties, rivaling that of the cherimoya and sugar apple. Ilama is the most cold sensitive of all the Annona. Typically fruits mature from July to December. The fruit is almost always eaten raw, out of hand. It grows best in climates having a dry season, followed by heavy rainfall. Ilama fruits perish within days of harvest and the fruit transports very poorly, hence its relative obscurity to much of the world.

Annona scleroderma, Posh-te, Cawesh, Poshte

Annona scleroderma

Posh-te, Cawesh, Poshte
Family: Annonaceae
Origin: Honduras, Guatemala
Big tree > 20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterEdible

A. scleroderma is a tall tree which reaches 15 to 20 m and has tough, lanceolate leaves measuring 10 to 25 x 5 to 8 cm. They are shiny on the upper side, slightly pubescent on the underside and have fragile, 3 cm long petioles. The flowers are greenish yellow, the outer petals have a longitudinal prominence which arises in the small branches or in groups in the old part of the thick branches. The cream-colored flesh has a creamy banana-pineapple like flavor and a soft texture. Said to be one of the most flavorful and refreshing Annona's, but the poshe-te is still elusive outside its native range. This round fruit, relatively little known has a rich aromatic and delicious flavor. The fruit is the size of an orange and has a dull green surface with perfectly textured pulp. Unlike some other Annonas, the pulp is not fibrous. The tough skin allows it to be handled easily and makes it resistant to insect attack. The trees should be pruned so that a wide crown remains to facilitate fruit harvesting. This also reduces exposure to wind and bird damage.

Araucaria araucana, Araucaria imbricata, Monkey Puzzle Tree, Chilean Pine

Araucaria araucana, Araucaria imbricata

Monkey Puzzle Tree, Chilean Pine
Family: Araucariaceae
Origin: South America
Big tree > 20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterOrnamental foliageThorny or spinySeaside, salt tolerant plant

Among the most spectacular are forests of pure Araucaria Araucaria araucana, the hardiest of the genus, is a large, bizarre-looking evergreen, 60-70ft. tall and 30 to 35 feet wide, though the tallest specimens in its native haunts have been measured at over 150 ft. It forms a loose, symmetrical, see-through crown, pyramidal in youth, eventually with a rounded or flattish top. The scale-like leaves are dark green, stiff, sharp-pointed and densely arranged on upwardly-sweeping branches, looking more reptilian than coniferous in character. Because of this it comes to know surprise to most people that this species is estimated to be around 60 million years old, based upon fossil record known today.

Preferring well-drained, volcanic soil, this species is surprisingly tolerant of many soil types. It is very tolerant of maritime exposures, salt-laden winds, and thrives in cool, mild climates. It dislikes hot-dry soils and atmospheric pollution.

See article about Araucaria.
