Forms a tree 200 ft. high, with a gigantic crown of palmate Lvs. with white-streaked petioles and blades 10 ft. in diam.: fr. borne in large, drooping clusters, dark brown, plum-like, 1½ in. diam., with a thin outer shell and a fibrous inner one inclosing a rounded, wrinkled seed 1 in. diam., reticulated like a walnut and ruminated as in the nutmeg.
