Morphology of the Fruit/Seed : Pods 10 to 20 cms by 1.8 to 2.5 cms; reddish brown with darker blotches over the seeds when ripe, flexible and dehiscent. Seeds 6 to 12; 5 to 7 mm in size, flat, elliptical to nearly orbicular, hard, smooth, pale brown with a hard leathery testa.

Seed Collection and Storage : Pods are collected from the trees by cutting the branches; pods are dried in the sun for few days before they open. Seeds are extracted by gentle thrashing and winnowing. Seeds can be stored for 5 years without loss in viability.

Pretreatment : Soaking in boiling water and allowed to cool for 24 hours; or soaking in cold water for 48 hours.

Nursery Technique : Sowing is done in April to May in unshaded primary beds (i.e. in drills spaced about 7.6 x 7.6 cms). Seedlings are pricked out into the polybags when 2 months old. Stumps prepared from 1 to 2 year old plants, give very good results.
