The fruit of many species of the genus Soursop is edible and is therefore widely cultivated in many tropical countries, such as the hairy soursop and the soursop in Peru.
Papaya bears fruit for 15 years, and bears many papayas near the trunk, and the flesh is delicious and hollow.
The genus Papaya contains 23 species of trees from South America. These trees are usually dioecious , with deeply lobed palmate leaves, tubular male axillary flowers, raceme-like inflorescences, female flowers wider than male flowers, inconspicuous tubular, solitary or clustered in leaf axils.
Native to the semi-arid regions of Africa and Asia, Moringa includes 12 species of deciduous trees, most of which have some ornamental value. The tree can reach a height of up to 8 meters, the trunk is rich in water (especially moringa), the pinnate leaves are arranged in a large spiral, and the fragrant white or red flowers are in a long raceme.
Moringa is the most widely developed species and has some economic value when grown as an ornamental tree in tropical and subtropical regions. Its seeds purify water and produce edible oil (also of some value in paint and cosmetics manufacturing); Its roots are equally edible.
The swollen white trunk of moringa looks very striking, giving it the common name “ghost tree”. The crown is tumory and strangely shaped.
The bark of the Borneo tree is dark brown with vertical cracks on its surface. Its leaves are smooth, broad ovate, hard, shiny, and its length is 10~25 cm (4~10 inches). Its flowers are light grey , hairy on the outer surface and orange on the inside , opening in early summer , forming large, bifurcated inflorescences that grow at leaf axils and at the ends of branches. Its fruit is very hard, brown, with 2~3 thin wings, which bear fruit in early summer, 5~8 cm (2~3 inches) long, and usually begins to germinate when it is still hanging on the tree.
Borneo Twin Tree
Dracaena thrives on Gran Canaria, the largest island in the Canary Islands. The tree grows very slowly, taking 10~15 years or even longer to grow 60~100 cm. Flowering allows the stems to branch and branch every 10 years, forming a very characteristic bifurcated canopy.
The trunk of dracaena is short and thick, the surface is light brown, rough, and can draw out many short and thick branches.
The old skin of teak peels off in small, thin, oblong chunks of skin, revealing the yellow inner skin inside. During the wet season, the flowers of teak bloom after new leaves grow.
The genus Teak is distributed in Southeast Asia and Malaysia, and the most important species is teak, which has a high value for wood and is used for shipbuilding and general construction, as well as to make furniture. Green teak is so dense and thick that it sinks in water – so trees often need to be peeled and dried in a ring before felling.
The flowers of the small fruit coffee tree are white, star-shaped, clustered, with 5 petals, exuding the fragrance of jasmine, and the flowering period is only 2~3 days. The tree only begins to bloom after 2~4 years of growth, usually after rain.
The genus Monarch includes more than 100 species of evergreen shrubs and small trees, native to tropical Africa and South Africa, where there is the highest concentration of monarch species, many of which are endemic. The height of the tree does not exceed 6 meters, single-leaved, alternate, leathery, the flowers are numerous and large, brightly colored, forming terminal inflorescences. The flowers produce nectar, which attracts many birds and bees to pollinate it.
The monarch tree is 4 meters tall and has lotus-like flowers, and the bracts unfold to reveal the white (pink) flowers inside.
Distributed in the pan-tropical region, it includes 150 species of trees and shrubs with large, spiral leaves, generally clustered at the ends of branches.
The tabular pitt tree (Genus Pycolyptus) is found in the forests of Central and South America, and it can reach heights of more than 35 meters.
