The European nettle tree, also known as European Hackberry or Lote tree (Celtis australis), is a deciduous tree that can grow up to 20 or 25 m in height. In Mallorca, this tree is called Lledoner.
A truly exceptional sample of this tree can be admired since near enough 400 years somewhere not far from Felanitx, to the East of the island, but you have to ask nicely, or else I won’t say where.
Birds love the small fruit. Wikipedia claims that the fruit of this tree is sweet and edible but, I do not know of anyone local who ever has tried it. I certainly haven’t, much as I admire the ornamental beauty of this tree. But it seems proven that both, the leaves as well as the small fruit of the Lledoner have ample medicinal properties.
