Miami, Florida

Sausage Tree, Riviera Gardens, Miami
The Sausage Tree (Kigelia Pinnata) also sometimes called the Fetish Tree, is a native of tropical Africa.  It has rough Pinnate Leaves, and flowers which have a rather peculiar appearance and hang suspended by long peduncles.  From each flower a large fruit develops.  These fruits have the appearance of big sausages, and doubtless have given the tree its name.

Musa Isle Indian Village, N.W. 16th Street and 25th Ave. on the Miami River.  Indian Village, Alligator and Crocodile Farm, Zoo, Tropical Gardens, Wishing Well, indian Exhibits and Curio Shop.
Alligator wrestling and guided tours every forty-five minutes.
A place of beauty and interest for thirty-five years.  Open daily year 'round, Nine to Six.

  1. The Fetish Tree. (You had to know I would notice that!) I think they used to have a Sausage Tree at Cypress Gardens.
