Tropical Sausage Tree (kigelia africana)


Large tubular flowers resembling a mouth with dark red lips and a velvety interior that is often overflowing with nectar bloom only at night and are visited by bats and hummingbird moths. The subsequent hard, woody, sausage shaped fruit is 2 to 4 feet in length and can weigh eleven to twenty-two pounds. A full size tree can reach 55 to 60 feet making it a spectacular central point in the landscape.
