Clusia hilariana is an evergreen tree with an open, spreading crown; it can grow 4 - 8 metres tall.

The tree is sometimes harvested from the wild for local use as a food, medicine and source of wood. A very ornamental plant, it can be used in general landscaping. The fruit is a globose capsule around 5cm in diameter containing several seeds surrounded by an orange-red edible aril.
