What is Aralia elata

Aralia elata or Taranoki (scientific name: Aralia elata) is a native East Asian origin such as Japan, it is a deciduous shrub of the genus Ukogi. It resembles urushi, but there are spines throughout the trunk. Things with few spines are called Medalla. Taranoki is a so-called pioneer tree species that grows first in forest fires and logging sites. On the branch that comes straight from the trunk, attach an odd number of feathered compound leaves like a bird's feather. The length of the compound leaf is about 1 m. The leaflet has an egg shape. The sprout that comes out in spring is called tararnome (bud of cod), it is considered to be the king of the wild plants and it is delicious when eaten in Tempura. In the summer, the scattering inflorescences are extended from the branches, and many white - yellow - green small flowers bloom spherically. Flowers have 5 petals, 5 stamens, 5 stigmas of pistil, 5 palm pieces, and 5. After autumn flowers have finished, small fruits are made and the fruits black ripe after fallen leaves. Like Taranoki, trees with thorns have murmurs and octopuses. When you look at the leaves, it is distinguishable because the margin and the ukogi are palm-shaped. A similar tree has a cohsbra, but there are no spines like turanome, and the leaves are palmar compound.
