Description: This is a deciduous tree with a very irregular ovoid crown. It reaches a height of 10 to 20 m and a crown width of between 5 and 10 m. Its trunk may be straight or twisted, and its smooth bark is of a pale grey-green, yellowish-green or brown colour. Its bipinnately compound leaves measure between 15 and 20 cm in length, while its leaflets, of 2 to 4.5 cm, are a medium green both above and below. This tree blooms between June and August. Its flowers measure 6 to 7 mm and are of a cream colour, appearing in groups of two or three to form globose glomerules of 2 to 2.5 cm in diameter, which are grouped in turn in panicles of 8 to 25 cm in length. Its fruits are flattened reddish-brown legumes of 10 to 25 cm in length, which mature in the autumn and dry out, remaining on the tree until winter. In its area of origin, this tree is deciduous during the dry season but here its leaves do not fall until well into winter.
