Areca catechu, L. (Betelnut, pinang, areca nut)

Watercolour on paper, no date (late 18th, early 19th century). Hand painted copy of an illustration commissioned by William Roxburgh (1751-1815). Roxburgh reports in his Flora Indica': Where this tree grows wild I cannot say from my own observation, but it is cultivated in the warmer parts of Asia, and is in flower most part of the year. It is the most beautiful palm we have in India. The seed is usually wrapoped in a wad of betel pepper leaves and chewed, promoting saliva and releasing arecaine, a mild narcotic. A brown dye can also be obtained from this plant
