Judas Tree

If you are familiar with a flower of Sweet Pea kind, you might noticed that this is the same group.  Yes, this plant belongs to the group, used to be called Leguminosae.  Yes, Legume = Beans.   And among the Leguminosae, she must be having the funniest story. 

This tree said to be originated from middle east, Judea country, hence its name.  But the other story was that, this is the tree of which Juda of Iscariot hanged himself, hence it was named so.  Yet, others say, because the tree’s seed pod dangling from the tree trunk, which resembling a hanging body, hence the name.  —– In that case, when the body of Juda was dangled from the tree, people found the similarity ?   Waite a moment, the seed pod of the tree has been dangling from the tree even before the human being inhabited the area, let alone Juda himself. —– M m m ! ?   Which came first ?     

Even more funnier story was that this tree was registered by the Israel Government as a protected species.   It seems, their Government was anxious to keep enough number of tree for their population, when they need.  

What a poor tree.   Isn’t there anything better to hang ?
