    Doesn't look like Pinocchio. Not sure what it is, but all of mine have spots.

    It looks like the Pinocchio in my yard, a very robust grower and good in full sun. The tree behind it looks like Ashoka, an interesting tree starting to show up more often in the Florida landscapes. I read that it's very common in India, which would explain why it's in Trinidad.

    99% - Pinocchio.

    Pinoсchio is fantastically variable. Guess who is in the picture below?:)
    Growing conditions – light in abundance, low temperature.
