Corotu Tree seed

Enterolobium cyclocarpum


I was just informed that this is the National Tree of Costa Rica called Guanacaste tree.


Found 3 seeds and a baby sprout with similar markings. I placed the seeds next to the new mystery plant because I think they are from the same species. On the outside of the spout-ling - for lack of a better word - there is a sticky, crystal-like formation. Very neat to see a plant birthing into this world; hope he likes it.

Thank you Jonathan. So it is called Guanacaste, cool. I am going to add that to the Tags.
