The Chinese toon is a hardy tree that can grow up to a maximum of 25 meters. The fruit, bark and roots have an important role in traditional Chinese medicine, and would break down cancer cells and counteract diabetes. Young leaves are used in China as a vegetable, and the taste is similar to onion or garlic. The leaves are for example added to rice, salads or scrambled eggs. A lot of recipes can be found online (Such as the recipe for Traditional fried egg).

De zaden gezaaid volgens de aanwijzingen. Jammer genoeg van de 40 zaden geen enkele opgekomen.
