Description for Parkia biglandulosa (Badminton Ball Tree)

The farinaceous pulp which surrounds the seeds is edible and so also are the seeds themselves, which taste like garlic.For most part of the year, this tree is very easily confused with Delonix or Jacaranda species.
s only during December-January, appearance of tennis-ball shaped fluffy flower heads makes one realise that this tree has to be Parkia! In the winter season, 1½ - 2 ft branches, hanging from the leaf axil, bear rust coloured bead-like flower heads, which gradually gain size of a tennis ball - and the "flowers" bloom to spectacular white electric bulbs!
lowers in round white heads are prominent, hence the native name 'Chendul' , or ball.
ate with very numerous leaflets; rachis of leaf downy, 1 ft. of more long; pinnae 20-30 pair, 60 to 100 pairs leaflets, rigid, 1/4 in. long. ,wo glands at the base of leaf, lends this species the name, biglandulosa. It is an avenue tree in Chennai.
