Manjack Tree Flowers
Posted on Feb 13, 2021 7:40 AM

Manjack known as Cordia sulcata is found on St. Croix Virgin Islands and the Caribbean Islands. This tree can grow about 100 feet tall. The tree blooms flowers twice a year and bears small white cherry fruits. The fruit is 1cm small. It is used as glue because the fruit has a sticky sap that burst when you squeeze it. It has one small seed inside.

When the tree blooms flowers, it's beautiful with ivory small flower bunched up and fills the tree with flowers on every part of the stem. Bees and birds are very welcome to this gorgeous tree.
