This tree of Mexico and Guatemala seldom grows more than 30 feet (9 m) in height. The Parmentiera edulis is adapted to a wide range of climatic conditions but is most frequently found in high-rainfall forests where it grows spontaneously. sometimes covering very large areas. Its trifoliate leaves with winged petioles are clustered at the nodes of the spiny branches.
