Anyone Know What The Trees With Long Green Seed Pods Are?

39 posts in this topic

Now that the leaves have fallen off the big trees outside the house, they are laden with long thin green seed pods ( up to a foot in length ). My wife says they are unedible, but doesn't know the English name.

Any ideas?

I am waiting for the arrival of the resident conspiracy theorists that will speculate that these are alien pod creatures preparing to take over the earth. :P

Lots of trees that have long seed pods. A picture or three would be a great help if you want people to help you.

Are they edible? If so, maybe parkia speciosa -- the sator tree. Google it for more info and photos.

Jacaranda?

samsiam has it right, flame tree, the Hang Nok Yoong is the Flame tree or Royal Poinciana latin name Delonix Regia. Its very commonly grown along road sides and looks beautiful when in full flower. I've never had any luck starting it from seed tho, some little worm always eats my seedlings

The thing is, we haven’t heard back from the OP. I saw three different trees with long thin green seedpods on my walk this evening. The flame tree seed pods are flat and wide, not what I would call long and thin.

Sadly not uncommon for someone to start a topic and never return.
