St John Flora: Calabash

Calabash

 

Calabash trees are often planted as ornamentals or for their large fruit which can be dried and used for bowls, water jugs or musical instruments.

A native of Africa, the calabash may have arrived on St. John with the slaves who worked on the Virgin Islands sugar plantations.
