Glochidion ferdinani - Cheese Tree
Family: Phyllanthaceae (Euphorbiaceae)

Fast growing shade tree, 8-10m.
Striking bergundy new growth.
Its simple alternate leaves can be smooth or hairy.
The flowers are tiny and yellow-green.
Red cheese-like fruits.
The fruit capsules often peel off leaving behind orange-red wedge-shaped seeds.
More often, the fruits are attacked by insects and never open.
It grows in and near most types of rainforest and is a common regrowth tree, especially along creeks at altitudes up to 1000m.
Ideal for bank stabilizing.

Seeds readily germinate and only the seeds left on the tree after the capsules have split are worth collecting.
Cuttings easily strike.
