Leucaena leucocephala is a small, fast-growing mimosoid tree native to southern Mexico and northern Central America, but is now naturalized throughout the tropics.

Common name: Wild tamarind, White Babool,
Color: glossy brown
Bloom time: july to aug
Height: (3-8 m)
Difficulty level: easy to grow

Planting & Care
Leucaena has long been grown for non-forage uses throughout the tropics (see below). It was developed as a forage in Hawaii (Takahashi and Ripperton 1949) and studied since the thirties. Increased interest and research in the pre-war period led to its development as a fodder in commercial farming in the Australian tropics and in many parts of tropical Asia. Although widespread in Africa the conditions which best suit its growth are also those which favour the tse tse fly.
During the 1970s and early 1980s leucaena was known as the miracle tree because of its worldwide success as a long-lived and highly nutritious forage, and its great variety of other uses

Sunlight: Full Sun

Soil: well-drained soil

Water: medium

Temprature: (25-30°C

Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer

Care:
  • Leucaena is a very free-seeding, colonizing plant which has spread to a very wide range of sites which are more or less frost-free, and has naturalized itself in many areas, some far outside the tropics.
  • In East Africa it will grow up to about 1 900 meters with growth slowing as altitude increases.
  • It is found as far north as the Punjab and the Himalayan foothills and occasionally in North Africa.

  • It is also seen in many semi-arid areas provided that it can find some soil moisture.
  • To be grown as a forage, however, it needs a long warm, moist growing season: its adaptation as a forage is described below.

Use
Medicinal use:
  • The nitrogen fixing nodules are found on the small lateral roots near the soil surface [12].
  • The seeds of leucocephala have great medicinal properties and are used to control stomachache, as contraception and abortifacient.
  • The seed gum used as a binder in tablet formulation

Culinary use:
  • leaves

Ornamental use:
  • The plant is used for ornamental purpose.


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