Kigelia africana - Young Sausage Tree

Kigelia africana - Young Sausage Tree (Kigelia africana - Young Sausage Tree)

This is my young Sausage tree which I germinated from a seed last year. It's really starting to get big now. Photo taken June 18, 2011.

Most likely I'll sell it before it matures (I have no room in the ground for this large tree). Unfortunately, it won't flower and develop the large sausage-like fruits until planted in the ground.

yes that is a shame, still you've done well from seed though.

Yes, it is a shame! However, I do know of a little tree in Balboa Park which has been kept relatively small over the last 3 years. I've posted pics in the past.

Here's the's the first pic:
