Randia aculeata is six to 10 feet tall, evergreen, with spiny, leathery leaves that cluster near the tips of the branches. They are simple, two-inch leaves, no teeth, circular, veins are pinnate, read spreading out from a central vein. The leaves and stiff horizontal branching habit give the shrub a kind of geometric look. Small white tubular flowers are produced axillarily, that is where the leaf or branch stems meet the main stem. They are fragrant and occur all year. Spread by birds, the seeds of Randia aculeata sprout throughout its range of South Florida, and much of Tropical America. They ripen from green to white and are filled with a blue pulp.
