This shrub or a small tree is rare in cultivation. It grows under 10 feet and has drooping branches and fine elliptical leaves with sunken veins. White flowers are borne in clusters of two or three. Fruits ripen throughout the summer, from May through October. They are large, 3 to 4 inches in diameter, with a thin, shiny orange skin and 2 to 4 seeds per fruit.

Sundrop is very sour, and is best used to make a delicious juice. The fruit can be deseeded and frozen, then blended with water and sugar for juice which is very aromatic, bright orange, and reminiscent of passion fruit juice. The fruit are also used to flavor liquor in Colombia. They are a good source of vitamin C containing double the amount of the average orange.

No pruning is required to grow this fruit tree. It grows well in acid soil and prefers moisture and high organic content. Flowering and fruiting occurs in 3 to 4 years from seed. The plant is fairly compact and should make a nice container specimen, will fruit in a large pot. It is sensitive to frost.
