Beautiful Pod Mahogany, Very Unusual Fresh Seeds


Pod Mahogany - Afzelia quanzensis

This listing is for a packet of 5 very large and decorative seeds only, the pod is not included due to the heavy weight.

A medium to large tree from Southern Africa (a population also exists isolated in Somalia), this deep rooted tree grows up to 35 metres tall, with a spreading crown. It is related to the Bauhinia's (Orchid Trees) and shares the large showy flowers of this group. The flowers have green and bronze/red petals and are sweetly scented. These are followed by large woody pods containing up to 10 seeds with their characteristic orange/red arils. Highly sought after for use in jewellery, the seeds are extremely hard and need pre-treatment in order to speed up germination (instructions online in my shop, follow the link on my 'Me' page).

The wood of this tree is very hard and resistant to attack by boring insects, so it is used for fences and railway sleepers in South Africa. Parts of the plant are also used in traditional herbal medicine either as cures for a range of ailments or to ward off bad luck.

Easy to grow, they are hardy to Zone 10, so only suitable in temperate regions for pot culture. Despite being deeply rooted in the wild, they can still be used as bonsai specimens, provided tall pots are used. Quick to establish, they may flower in as little as 7 years from seed (if growth is restricted - open grown plants may take 10 years or more).

Growing Instructions

I always sell seeds that I have experience of growing so the instructions provided represent 1st hand experience. These instructions may change over the course of time (as I find out more about the plants and seeds) but the details that you will be provided with, at purchase, represent the latest version. If you have any questions concerning the culture requirements of this or any other item I am selling please contact me:

I will be happy to provide extra details you require.

Bidding on more than 1 item?

I will always combine shipping wherever this is possible and all auctions finishing within a SEVEN day period will qualify.  If I have not sent an invoice, please e-mail me for a combined invoice when you have finished bidding/buying, doing this will almost certainly save you money. 

Due to the varying weights of the seeds it is not possible to apply a standard discount without overcharging for the majority of cases.  Additionally I cannot apply a postal discount unless PayPal payments are combined.

Germinating seeds and growing plants are subject to many other factors including the conditions under which they are raised (including but not limited to: Light, moisture, soil, humidity) and the skill of the individual grower.  As the vendor, such  factors are completely outside of my control and all seeds and plants are supplied on this basis.
