Description: From our 2013 seed collection gathered on the Himalayas at 2800m. Not convinced by the identification of this collection as there were much less spines than normal on this small aromatic tree or large shrub. Bearing unusual large pinnate leaves with viciously spiny broadly winged rachis (axis that bears the leaflets) bearing 2-5 pairs of leaflets. The small yellow flowers are set close to the branches in small irregular lateral clusters, which ultimately form small capsules which split to reveal the glossy black to dark red seed. Best grown in full sun to part shade, in a well draining soil. Twigs used to clean teeth, while the seed are ground as a condiment, as well as many other uses.
