Customer Tips & Reviews Peanut Tree
Mine is quite big and it had a perfect canopy until last week when we had wind two of main branches snapped off hoping no more as after good rain it looked so beautiful a bit lopped sidef now but i still love it. Only flowered no pods yet.
Had it growing in the ground, but took it out because it didn't appear to be doing well. growing in a pot now, and has had lots of growth, but is already fully deciduous. bugs like the leaves.
One of my favourite bush tucker plants.
Ok so like you must burn it with fire to get the real taste out of it
Unanderra, NSW, Australia
Attractive, quick growing tree. Semi-deciduous - will lose its leaves briefly in spring just before new spring growth. Flowering April 2010 for the first time.

A dear old lady gave me the tree in a pot when she left town. 6 years later it has producted it's first boat shaped pod with seeds. What any amazing colour. Doesn't get alot of love or water. Kingaroy Queensland

I have a few of these trees, some are doing really well, some look a bit leggy.
Grows well in a pot. I rarely water it, and have never re-potted. Still growing well after approx. 5 years!
