St. John USVI: Amarat

Amarat in Flower, Chocolate Hole, St. John Virgin Islands
Fig Banana Flower, Chocolate Hole St. John USVI

One of the most common trees in our “native dry forest garden” is the amarat. They are acacias, (casha bush) but do not have thorns likes most other varieties.

Lately they have been in bloom and their flower and new leaves are particularly attractive.

Our non-native (exotic) fig banana is also in flower. It should open up soon and well be enjoying figs in about six weeks.
