5 Seeds w/Instructions - also known as "Pearl of Zanzibar"
The mgambo tree, Majidea zangueberica (syn Majidea Zanquebarica) is a small tree at maturity growing up to 16 ft tall. This very ornamental small tree has shiny foliage with an attractive rounded canopy, making it very suitable for small tropical gardens or a container plant in cooler climates. They are hardy only in frost-free zones, otherwise they can make a rare and unique houseplant as they are smaller when container grown. Its highly ornamental seeds mean it's sometimes referred to as the black pearl tree or velvet seed tree. It flowers with dense clusters of small green-red, fragrant flowers at the end of panicles. The seeds are often used in artisan jewelry and dried pods in the composition of bouquets and potpourris.
Frost free in zones 9 -12, greenhouse, indoors or as a bonsai.
