Can someone help me ID this tree ... I live in Montserrat, in the Caribbean. Thank you so much
Looks like either a Sapote or a buckeye. Can't tell without looking at the bark. Sapote are edible and Buckeye is deadly. The bark on a Sapote is splotchy grey ish. Here's a picture of my sapote.
Thanks Growin, Lovemanyplants & Darwiniensis for your help. I looked up other images of Sterculia foetida and it is my tree. I appreciate the ID, it has had me stumped for awhile. I will add the photos I have to the plant file. Have a great day!!!!!
the genus was named after Sterculius, the roman god of outhouses. The flowers smell unpleasantly.
