Craboo tree flowering (aka Nance)
By the banana stand at the north end of Maya Center Village. This was in late April.
Mmmmm. We have so much wild craboo around here. My pigs loooove it and it makes them taste yummy too. It is called rain tree in Belize but the true name is saman tree or mimosa large tree. The leaves close in the late eaving and open in the morning, that the reason it is called the rain tree because when the leaves open the leaves have water and fell on the ground always cool and grass grows under it most of the time. This one has a small round sweet fruit. Sour craboo are found in the Pine Ridge.
