Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Glochidion ferdinandi, commonly known as the cheese tree, is a species of tree in the Phyllanthaceae family. It is native to eastern Australia, where it grows in rainforests and wetter sclerophyll forests. Frugivorous birds such as pigeons, figbirds and parrots consume its fruit. It grows as a woody shrub or small tree to 8 metres (26 ft), although occasionally reaching 30 metres (98 ft), with flaky brownish-grey bark. It has simple alternate-arranged elliptical leaves 3-10 centimetres (1.2-3.9 in) in length and -5.5 centimetres ( 0.98 in) wide; the species may be partly deciduous in winter. Flowering may occur at any time of year; the cheese tree has both single female and male flowers, which are found in groups of three.
