Description: We were very pleased with ourselves when we came across this lovely pinnate leafed species in the Lachen Valley in eastern Sikkim in 2013 at over 3000m. Where they only formed small semi-evergreen trees 3-4m tall with bare upright trunks bearing a mass of branches well clothed in chunky pinnate thick-textured softly downy leaves to 60cm long, consisting of 5 to 15 large ovate leaflets to 25cm long. With terminal congested cymes of reddish aromatic fruit/seed capsules, that are mostly 4-merous. Hinting at the popularity of this fruit used in making chutneys etc. as well as medicinal applications. Easily grown in most types of fertile well drained soils with some moisture retention, best in full sun to part shade, shelter from freezing winds.
