COLE'S WATTLE Seeds | Acacia colei

SKU: Cole's Wattle Seeds Acacia Colei
PriceFrom AU$11.00
  • Acacia colei is a spreading shrub growing 2m - 4m tall and wide, occasionally becoming a single stemmed tree up to 9m tall on more fertile sites. Although it produces true leaves as a seedling, like most members of this genus, the mature plant does not have true leaves but has leaf-like flattened stems called phyllodes.

     

    The plant is harvested from the wild for local use as a food and source of materials. It was a moderately important food source for native Australians. Acacia colei is planted in Western Africa on an increasing scale for windbreaks, land rehabilitation and fuel wood production. Its seeds are highly nutritious and have vast potential as a new food crop for dry, sub-Saharan Africa.

     

    The seed of many Acacia species, including this one, is edible and highly nutritious, and can be eaten safely as a fairly major part of the diet. Not all species are edible, however, and some can contain moderate levels of toxins. Especially when harvesting from the wild, especial care should be taken to ensure correct identification of any plants harvested for food. Especially in times of drought, many Acacia species can concentrate high levels of the toxin Hydrogen Cyanide in their foliage, making them dangerous for herbivores to eat.
