Acacia pruinocarpa, commonly known as black gidgee, gidgee or tawu, is a tree in the family Fabaceae. Endemic to Australia, it occurs throughout the arid centre, from Carnarvon, Western Australia, east to Tanami, Northern Territory and Mann Range, South Australia. It is especially common along watercourses and in low lying areas that receive drainage.
Additional recommended knowledge
Black gidgee grows as an upright tree to twelve metres high, and with a girth of up to two metres or more. Like most Acacia species, it has phyllodes rather than true leaves. These are a grey-green colour, up to seventeen centimetres long and two centimetres wide, and slightly curved. The flowers are yellow, and held in cylindrical clusters. The pods are pale brown and papery, up to twelve centimetres long and two centimetres wide.
