City Farm Plant of the Month – Tuckeroo (Cupaniopsis anacardioides)

Cityfarm - Tuckeroo (Cupaniopsis anacardioides)

Tuckeroo (Cupaniopsis anacardioides)

The Tuckeroo (Cupaniopsis anacardioides) or Cupan Tree is a beautifully shaped tree with a non-invasive root system which tolerates both wet and dry conditions, eventually reaching 10m.

This tree is suitable for and popular in coastal areas as it also tolerates salt spray. It has dark green foliage and, in autumn, insignificant white flowers followed by yellow/orange fruits which are edible.

It is a good shade tree commonly used in street planting throughout SE Queensland.

If you have some undamaged used pots at home we would appreciate them for use in the nursery as we recycle them. 140ml pots and grow tubes are most needed. If you could drop off any pots when you visit the nursery we would be most grateful.
