Description
Branch of tawa, showing leaves, flowers and ripe black berries Accompanying text reads: This is one of the most common trees of the New Zealand forest. The wood is worthless for most purposes, but splits with great ease. The wild pigeons feed on the berries, which taste strongly of turpentine. The inside of the berry consists of a nut like that of an acorn, which forms equally good food for pigs. Other Titles - Tawa A close copy of Martha King's watercolour "Fruit of the Tawa" Ref. no.
