Occurs naturally in NT at low elevations, and naturalised in WA, CYP, NEQ and CEQ due probably to the direct or indirect consequences of cultivation (Fide Pedley,1998). Altitudinal range from near sea level to 100 m. Usually grows naturally in open forest but also found in monsoon forest and closed forest particularly on heavy soils on river flood plains. Also occurs in Malesia and Asia. Widely cultivated throughout the tropics particularly in areas with a marked dry season.
