Canarium gawadaense Baker f.
Canarium kaniense is a tree that can grow up to 40 metres tall. The bole can be 75cm in diameter, it is sometimes buttressed[
The edible seed is harvested from the wild for local use.
Australasia - New Guinea.
Rainforest at elevations from 1,000 - 2,000 metres, sometimes descending to near sea level[
A dioecious species, both male and female forms need to be grown if fruit and seed are required[
]. Rich in oil[
The wood of most species in the genus Canarium is usually soft to moderately hard and probably not very durable in exposed positions. It is not, therefore of any great commercial value and is only used locally or not at all[
Seed - we have no specific information for this species but seeds of this genus generally have a hard seed coat and germinate erratically. Filing away some of the seed coat to allow moisture to enter more readily, without damaging the seed, will encourage a faster and more even germination[
