Is anyone here familiar with the tree known in Spanish as Quiebra Barriga? Can you tell me if it has an English name?

When I first read your subject, I thought this was going to be a question about a "belly buster" or some such thing!

However, out of curiosity I did a web search and I did find that this tree is also known as a "nacedero"; you probably already know that... I'm sorry, I could not find any English translation. It did seem to be some sort of a member of the orange family, but - once again - you probably already know that!

I'll be looking forward to reading other answers.
