Sausage tree fruit

Sausage tree fruit

Kigelia africana is an African tree, easily recognised due to the large sausage-shaped fruits hanging from its branches. The generic name Kigelia comes from the Mozambican name for sausage tree, ‘kigeli-keia’. Sausage trees are sacred to many communities and are often protected when other forest trees are cut down.

I have posted a larger image of this tree.
