Beautiful orange flowers will become a white edible fruit. According to the legend, the name Geiger Tree was bestowed by Audubon in memory of John Geiger a Key West 19th century pilot and wrecker. The very showy tubular orange flowers are up to 1 1/2 inches in diameter (4 cm). They appear scattered over the tree, most of warm season. The fruits are oval shaped, 1 to 1.5 inches long (2.5 to 4 cm) with a whitish color. They are borne in clusters. Although they are edible and have a pleasant fragrance, they have poor flavor.
