Silk tree of Senegal

Author 'Ninik' (Id 190756 ) : I wondered why the apples of Sodom, also bore the name of silk tree of Senegal.
Seeing this open fruit with seeds beards, I think the explanation is there.
In fact, these fruits (toxic) are not nuts, but they are the size of mangoes but, as you can see, there is not of flesh, nor of the kernel but of the seeds.

The fruit inside is superb with these very fine threads that come out, superb.

After the fruit still green, I like the harmonious colors of this fruit burst out of the silk tree that I discovered with more precision. Bravo Ninik for these discoveries and thanks for sharing.

What a discovery for me to see a piece of fruit with silk thank you Ninik for this photo and your explanations

I didn't know that trees could produce silk.
I reserved it only for silk worms.
Thank you for this info. Ninik !

I believe that the name comes only from the appearance of these filaments, but they are not used because if such an industry existed, our friend, a senegalese would not have failed to mention it when I asked him questions about these plants.
