Simaroubaceae, Harrisonia abyssinica, Pedo (Luo)

October 2, 2009

This is typically a small shrub, but can grow up to 10 m in height.

A decoction from boiled roots is drunken as a remedy for tuberculosis and insomnia. Extracts from the whole plant are used as a remedy for stomach aches and abdominal pain.
