Cordia ovalis - Satin-Bark Saucer-Berry

This listing is for 5 seeds.

The Saucer-Berries are members of the Borage family, more generally known for herbaceous perennials than trees/shrubs. The Satin-Bark Saucer-Berry comes from Southern Africa and has quite a dispersed range.  Growing to 7 metres tall with a similar spread, the tree gets it's common name from its very smooth bark.  Sometimes confused with C monoica, this has been shown to be distinct from that species.  The plant produces clusters of un-remarkable (to look at) pale yellow/green flowers, that are very fragrant (as is the case with many drab flowers).  These are followed by clusters of fruit, which ripen to an orange-red colour with a jelly-like flesh.  The top of the fruit has a persistent saucer shaped calyx (part of the flower), which gives the group its common name.

This will make an interesting houesplant or conservatory specimen, it could also be trained as an indoor bonsai, in the same way as many savannah trees and shrubs.

Full growing instructions can be reached via my 'Me' page and following the instructions and links there.
