Candle tree fruit
(Parmentiera cereifera — Family Bignoniaceae)
Candletree fruit is not related to the candlenut, but is related to the ‘midnight horror’ and ‘sausage tree fruit’.
Candle tree fruit are produced by a twenty-foot tree grown in Panama which bears white or yellow funnel-shaped flowers directly on the trunk or larger branches.
These flowers develop into dangling yellow fruits up to three feet in length, and greatly resemble bunches of yellow wax candles hanging from the tree.
The fruits, and its edible seeds, are popular in some places in Mexico.
