Looking Up At Small Sausage-Pods  (Kigelia africana) (Sausage tree - Kigelia africana)

This sausage tree has small developing sausage-like fruit (they're not edible). Photo taken at the San Diego Zoo on March 26, 2011. This photo is of course posted for my friend Terratoonie. :>)

Lovely photo little babies from the last one Andy, I ve bought a chocolate vine which says it produces sausages, I bought the seed to try but when I shared them with Milky I could nt find the packet which had a couple of seeds left lol so I got the plant while I could.
