Enterolobium contortisiliquum, Samanea Saman, monkey pod or Rain Tree is a tree of the fabaceae family.
It is a very large tropical tree that usually reaches 30 m in height with a diameter of 20 m.
The rain tree is native to the tropical and subtropical regions of South America.
In Europe, Enterolobium is grown as bonsai and remains indoors.
The flowers are pink and resemble those of Albizia.
Samanea saman seeds are medium-sized, with several shades of brown.
The name Rain Tree comes from the fact that when clouds approach, the leaves of the tree fold on themselves allowing the water to reach the ground to irrigate the roots.
Once the weather returns, the leaves unfold again to enjoy the light.
Samanea Saman's wood is light and water resistant thanks to its resin.
It was for this reason that the Wichis Indians used it to build canoes by digging his trunk.
It is used for exterior openings of buildings, outdoor furniture, parquet and construction and naval structures.
Monkey pod seeds are mainly used in the manufacture of ethnic jewelry with flamboyant and coral tree.
The fruit and bark of Samanea saman are rich in saponins (which are also found in the soapberry or soapwort), from which the Pilagá aborigines used them as vegetable soap.
The bark of Enterolobium contains between 13 and 22% of tannins, giving it an application in the leather industry.
The fruit of Saman is edible, once opened, a kind of sweet honey is eaten.
