Discover the versatile Elaeocarpus angustifolius, also known as the Blue marble tree, Blue Quandong, Indian Bead tree or Rudraksha. This awe-inspiring evergreen tree, with a thin, open canopy, has the ability to grow up to 100 ft tall. Even young, smaller trees feature a prominently buttressed bole that can range from 8-80 inches in diameter, extending up to 20 ft from the tree. Originating from India, this tree is revered for its sacred nature and practical function - its seeds are intricately crafted into beads for rosaries and buttons, or utilized for its minor medicinal properties and edible values. With ripe fruit that offers edible pulp, the seeds of the Elaeocarpus angustifolius can serve as a remedy for blood pressure and heart diseases. Even the fruit can be used to treat head diseases and epileptic fits. The leaf sap may also provide relief from stomach-ache or chest and shoulder pain. Cultivate this mesmerizing tree to enhance your garden or utilize its various uses. For germination, seeds can take up to 2 years to germinate because of the hard, woody shell. However, applying careful techniques like filing down or cracking the shell, careful not to damage the seed, can lead to faster germination. Ideal for spaces looking for an impressive ornamental fixture that holds incredible attributes for both well-being and artisan crafting purposes.
