The Kentucky Coffee-tree reaches a height of 60 to 75 feet. The leaves are the biggest of any Canadian tree, measuring 60 by 90 cm. They are split into many tiny bluish-green leaflets and are doubly complex. The blooms have a greenish-white colour to them. The fruit is a 15 to 25 cm long hard, black, leathery, bean-like pod. The fruit, which contains four to seven seeds, stays on the tree all winter. The Kentucky Coffee-tree can be seen growing alone or in larger groupings, with several trunks emerging from the same root system.
