This is genuine Mahogany. There are many Mahoganies, but Honduran Mahogany is the real McCoy. This is the Mahogany by which all other are judged. Honduran Mahogany was widely exploited for its shimmering beauty and put on the CITES list and thus limiting its international export to certified sustainable resources. As a result Honduran Mahogany is now grown on many plantations throughout Central America.
Honduran Mohogany, just as quite a few other trees in its family, grow an odd fruit on it. This odd fruit is called “skyfruit,” because it seems to grow from the tree as if it’s about to fly from its branch. Inside of the this “Fruit” are up to 70 winged seeds.
