DescriptionInga paterno is native to southern Mexico and Central America (Zarucchi 1986). Inga paterno is a fast-growing tree, reaching 10 m to 20 m in height and 44 cm d.b.h. Inga paterno has pinnately compound leaves with four to five elongated and entire leaflets (Guzmin 1980). Leaves are copper-red and soft when young, and dark green and rigid when mature. In El Salvador it grows from sea level to 2000 m in moist and welldrained soils. It is found along streams and in riparian zones.
