Medium sized vine-like shrub that will climb if given support. This species is a rank-growing, straggly, woody, climbing shrub, usually growing to 10 or 15 ft ,high and sometimes ascending to the tops of tall trees. Rich in white, gummy latex. The karanda is more cold-tolerant than the carissa, is fairly hardy and will survive to 25F. Plants are salt tolerant and can be trained into hedges. It is most fruitful on deep, fertile, well-drained soil but if the soil is too wet, there will be excessive vegetative growth and lower fruit production. The sweeter types may be eaten raw out-of-hand but the more acid ones are best stewed with plenty of sugar. The unripe fruit is used medicinally as an astringent. The ripe fruit is taken as an antiscorbutic and remedy for biliousness. Propagation is usually by seed because cuttings have never rooted readily.Read more about this plant.

Catesbaea spinosa, Lily Thorn

Click to see full-size image Catesbaea spinosa
Family: Rubiaceae
Lily Thorn
Origin: Antilles
Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterWhite/off-white flowersYellow/orange flowersFragrantAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsEdibleThorny or spiny

The tree about 4in thick and twelve or 14ft in height; the bark is smooth, of a greenish russet color, and the wood seemingly tough and hard. The leaves were like those of box, but smaller; they grow in clusters round the stalks, by intervals of an 1in space, more or less; from every cluster shoots forth two sharp pliant spines. The flowers are tubulous, of a yellow color about 6in long, hanging pendulous. They are monopetalous, being very small at the calix, and wide at the mouth, in form of a roman trumpet, except that their verge is divided into four deep segments, which are usually reflected back.

The fruit is of an oval form, and of the size of a pullet's egg; the flesh or pulp of it is like that of a ripe apple, covered with a smooth yellow skin. The middle of the fruit is hollow, containing many small triangular seeds. The fruit has an agreeable tartness and good flavour, and seems as if it was capable of being improved by cultivation, but is little known.
