Gban-yen (Sapo)


Notes

Rainforest tree to 30 m tall and 70 cm Ø, often in swamps but also on dry land. Base with narrow root spurs and sometimes low, thick stilt roots; bark brown, flaky. Slash thick, granular, reddish, exuding a red sap. Red sap also exuding from the wood. Leaves resembling those of Coula edulis but without stellate hairs and nerves not scalariform. At the end of a twig one will find an as yet undeveloped leaf that is curved to one side, often hairy. Fruit about 4 – 5 cm, globose, impressed at the top, opening with 2 valves, exposing a single seed with a red, laciniate aril. Seed ruminate (on cross section). The tree is very similar to C. oxycarpum, but that species occurs in drier forest zones and galery forests; its fruits are smaller and elliptic. Syn.: Coelocaryon preussii. See also PROTA database.
