I got seeds from a plant I found. The owner does not know what it is.
The pod is of the size of the little finger.
It countains a sweet caramel around the seeds! The seeds were quite black, and flat. The pod is rounded like green beens.

The roots escaped the pot that I had to cut, and did not suffer from transplant in summer.
It is now 1 year and half and nearly 1m50.
No spines.

This not knowing about varieties, and a lot of people don't mind at all, is a real problem, because then it is not possible to know what the tree needs, for example for water. A lot of acacias have very different needs.

This looks like Christmas Cassia,Cassia bicapsularis. I have it growing all over my yard. The pollinators LOVE it.
