Mgambo Seed (Majidea Zanquebarica) Hua Weleweka, Velvet Seed, Hawaiian Pussy Willow, Mau`i Mink - Soap Berry Family (Sapindaceae)

The Mgambo seed is not an easy seed to access.  The tree does not grow wild all over the Hawaiian islands but when you have one near you, you take car of the tree and you watch for the seeds to be ready to harvest.  The Mgambo seed is a beautiful seed to look at and to wear.  It is a beautiful gray color to a charcoal gray, and it is also almost impossible for others to ask to touch the seed.  It looks like it is a soft seed because of the fuzzy texture to the seed, but the seed if firm and the fuzzy outer shell does not peel or fall off of the seed when touched. 

The Mgambo seeds are used for many types of lei, and many types of  jewelry.  These Mgambo seeds are available  many styles of lei, and are also available to purchase loose for your own craft and style.

WILIWILI SEED - CORAL TREE (Indian and Hawaiian) Arynthrina sandwicensis - Wiliwili (Native Hawaiian) - Red seed - Erythrina variegata alba - Wiliwili Haole - White seed - Erythrina variegata - Wiliwili Haole - Dark Pink seed with black veins - Erythrina variegata - Wiliwili Haole - Black seed - Pea Family (Fabaceae)

The Wiliwili seed in Hawai`i is currently in trouble.  The Hawaiian islands have had a bug infest the Coral Tree and have killed many of them if not the vast majority in many areas.  Others have cut the trees back to the stump to keep the infestation from killing their trees.  With that being said, Wiliwili seeds are harder to come by these days.  With care for the trees and mother nature taking her course, these trees will come back and start to create a harvest of these beautiful seeds to adorn us all.
