Medium size tree producing 2-3" size red-orange colored fruit with edible pulp. The plant seems to tolerate brief frosts and grows well in wet conditions or near water. Tolerates alkaline soil. Flowering intermittently year-round; fruiting year-round. A common tree of coastal forests throughout the tropical western Pacific, it is climatically well suited to seasonally dry southern Florida, with its salt-laden air. Although uncommon at present, it has the potential to become an established strand species.
