Male flowers of Ceratonia siliqua L. [photo 4/9]

Flowers are small and numerous, 6-12 mm long, spirally arranged along the inflorescence axis in catkin-like racemes borne on spurs from old wood and even on the trunk (cauliflory). Flowers are green-tinted red. Flowers show pentamerous symmetry with calyx but not corolla placed on a short pedicel. The calyx is discshaped, reddish-green and bears nectaries. Male flowers consist of a nectarial disk with 5 stamens with delicate filaments surrounded by hairy sepals. In the centre of the disk there is a rudimentary pistil (Batlle & Tous, 1997).
