A huge Acacia tree in one of the gardens here in Muscat, Oman.

Pictures taken on the 17th of May,12.
Very few tiny flowers seen, some fallen on the ground.
Many pods hanging on the tree and also found underneath.

Kindly id.


This looks like the Tomentose Babul [Acacia nilotica var. tomentosa].


Was thinking it to be similar id…thanks for confirming.


Sketch of legume looks close to Vachellia nilotica subsp. tomentosa (Benth.) Kyal. & Boatwr.

Acacia nilotica  sub species.


Maybe subsp. indica as subsp. tomentosa does not have distribution as per POWO.
