SeanP, are you perhaps talking about Indigoferra, or is maybe part of the Fig family?

:think: The tree here in Dubai is also pretty widely spread across North Africa and the Middle East. Think Biblical! I believe that gives it away! :)

:hmz: Nope! Let's have a recap. Name two trees one of which is found in Kruger and has a relative in North Africa as well as the Middle East. These trees grow in Dubai often near a pond or Wadi (not a Phoenix)... The next clue... there is a Biblical reference in the species name of the one in Middle East... and that should lead everyone to the South African tree! Voila! :twisted:

Not a palm of any kind. Think of the crucifixion.
