Spanish term or phrase: sénsil
De una descripción de varios arboles. Estoy buscando como decir esta frase ya que desconozco el significado esta palabra: "Sus frutos son axiales, sénsiles, normalmente dispuestos en pares". Esta frase se refiere al fruto del laurel de indias. Gracias.

  -> gracias catalina!

agree  John Speese: Tambien creo yo que se trata de un error tipografica para "sesil", que significa sencillamente que los frutos no tienen tallos pero son atados directamente a las ramas.
