Gall Nut

GALLS : (ou cecidia) are outgrowths of plant tissues and can be caused by various parasites.

SCRD sources its Gall Nuts in China


Galls are rich in resins and tannic acid and have been used in the manufacture of permanent inks (such as iron gall ink) and astringent ointments, in dyeing, and in tanning. A high-quality ink has long been made from the Aleppo gall, found on oaks in the Middle East; it is one of a number of galls resembling nuts and called "gallnuts" or "nutgalls".
