Duguetia trunciflora Seeds

Duguetia trunciflora is a species of tree in the family Annonaceae, which is native to the Amazon rainforest in South America. It can grow up to 25 meters tall and has a dense, rounded canopy of a treecrown with glossy green leaves that are about 10 to 20 cm in length. The flowers are greenish-yellow and are borne directly on the trunk and main branches, which is a characteristic known as cauliflory. The fruit is a large, round berry that is about 8 to 10 cm in diameter, and contains many seeds.

Duguetia trunciflora is an important medicinal plant in traditional Amazonian medicine, and is used to treat various ailments such as fever, inflammation, pain, and infections. The bark, leaves, and fruit of the tree all contain active compounds that have been found to have antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties.
