With its extremely large fruit and showy flowers, the Sausage tree is a very unique and enjoyable addition to any subtropical garden, providing shade and character. It is also known to attract a wide range of birds, animals and insects. This multi-functional tree is not only ornamental and used in the culinary and medicinal applications, but also for its tough wood used for shelving, fruit boxes and dugout canoes, as a bright yellow dye, and also as beauty products and skin ointments prepared from fruit extracts. Do note that you have to position it with care when planting as a falling fruit can severely damage a parked vehicle or someone sitting underneath it. This is a common feature plant.
