Sapindus saponaria, commonly called wingleaf soapberry or winged soapberry, is a small to medium-sized evergreen tree with an open-rounded crown. It is native to Florida and Georgia plus a large number of subtropical to tropical areas including parts of the Caribbean, Central America, South America and Hawaii.

Common name: Sapindus saponaria
Color: Creamy-white to yellow-white
Bloom time: May to June
Height: 20.00 to 40.00 feet
Difficulty level: easy to grow

Planting & Care
That being said, I wish we had more room to plant our soapnut tree. Sapindus Mukorossi requires a fertile soil and a frost free climate. It’s a tall tree that can take as long as ten years to begin fruiting. A friend of mine has one growing in Altadena.

Sunlight: Full Sun to Partial Shade

Soil: well-drained soil

Water: medium

Temprature: 43°C

Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer

Care:

  • Sapindus Mukorossi needs lots of water.
  • Craig has pointed out the perfect permacultural pairing for our dry climate–use the greywater from your washing machine to water your soap nut tree.

 


Harvesting: The Sapindus The saponaria leaves were harvested and shade dried for 20 days.

Care:

 

 

  • One day I found a soap nut seed amidst the husks.
  • These are supposed to be removed from the husks, but this one made it through.
  • My immediate thought was I must grow my own soap nut tree, and so I began to search for information about how to grow them.
  • I could not find much information available, and what is available is geared towards commercial farmers in Asia.

 


Special Feature:
Lawn specimen, small shade tree, street tree or patio tree. Screen.
Use
Medicinal use:

 

 

  • Fruits possess several medicinal properties and are widely used for example in the treatment of asthma, colic and dysentery, and during childbirth.
  •  

 


Note:
for medicinal use, please consult appropriate doctor before use.
