Acacia catechu is a deciduous, thorny tree which grows up to 15m in height. Common names for it include Catechu, Cachou and Black Cutch. It is found in Asia, China, India and the Indian Ocean area.
Additional recommended knowledge
Branches of the tree are quite often cut for goat fodder and are sometimes fed to cattle.
The tree can be propagated by planting its seeds, which are soaked in hot water first. After about six months in a nursery, the seedlings can be planted in the field.
