Deer Ear Tree | Malabar Almond |ต้นหูกวาง | tôn hŏo gwang
The Deer Ear Tree or Malabar almond tree grows to about 35 m tall, with an upright, symmetrical crown and horizontal branches. As the almond tree gets older, its crown becomes more flattened to form a spreading, vase shape. The leaves are large, 15-25 cm long and 10-14 cm broad, ovoid, glossy dark green and leathery. They are dry-season deciduous; before falling, they turn pinkish-reddish or yellow-brown, due to pigments such as violaxanthin, lutein, and zeaxanthin.
