Toona sinensis, also known as Chinese Mahogany, Chinese Toon, or Red Toon, is a highly popular and revered tree native to eastern and southeastern Asia. It is grown for its nutritious and tasty vegetable, Toona Sprouts, which are easy to cultivate and rich in protein, vitamin A, fat, carbohydrate and ash. The young leaves of this tree have a unique onion-like flavor and are extensively used as a vegetable in China. The trunk of the tree is hard and reddish, making it valuable for furniture making and the bodies of electric guitars. Toona sinensis is also a large ornamental tree, with a haggard aspect that is highly valued outside of its native regions. This species is the only cold-tolerant member of the Meliaceae family and can be cultivated successfully in northern Europe. The tree also holds cultural significance in Chinese literature, where it is often used as an extreme metaphor for a mature father. Purchase Toona sinensis tree seeds if you want to grow your own Toona Sprouts and experience the unique flavor of this highly esteemed vegetable.
