The Judas Tree on the Church Hill of Mélykút
Species: Judas Tree (Cercis siliquastrum L.)
Age: 250 years
Region: Mélykút, Bács-Kiskun county, Hungary
The Judas Tree on the church hill of Mélykút
The tree was planted in 1750 by Franciscan monks from Subotica on a hill in the north side of the church that was being built in the village at the time. It is a miracle that this Medditerrenean species is still alive there. Its spring blooming is admired by everyone and has become a symbol of the settlement. Countless seedlings from it live in the gardens of people from Mélykút, thus connecting the past with the present and the settlement with its former inhabitants around the world.
