About Amaltas tree:

  • Habit: A medium-sized tree, up to 10 m tall, looks magnificent when in full bloom.

  • Flowering: During the hot weather (April-May) the tree becomes most conspicuous with its pendulous inflorescence of golden yellow, mildly scented flowers. The tree remains leafless at the commencement of flowering and the end of the flowering season; the leaves start to appear.
  • Fruiting: After flowering is over, the long (30-45 cm) cylindrical pods appear, which become black on ripening.
  • Growth rate: The tree is of slow growth and may take ten years to flower. Under favorable climatic conditions, it may flower in five years.
