Sycamore (Acer pseudoplatanus) - fruits
Sycamore is a deciduous broadleaf tree native to central, eastern and southern Europe and it is believed that it may have been introduced to the UK, first in England, by the Romans. Other reports suggest it was introduced to the UK in the Tudor era around the 1500s. More widespread planting occurred in the 1700s and the earliest reports of the species naturalising in the UK date from the mid 1800s. After pollination by wind and insects, the female flowers develop into distinctive winged fruits known as samaras.
