NotesIt is only small, but give it time.  These primitive conifers have been around since the time of the dinosaurs.  The name Monkey Puzzle is misleading because there are no monkeys in southern Chile where they originate.  Their other name of Chilean Pine is also misleading because they are not in the Pine family.  The seeds, only produced when the tree is large enough, taste delicious.
