The tree is a slow-growing tropical evergreen, reaching to 30 feet in the tropics. Flowers and fruits are borne in clusters along the trunk and main branches. Fruit ripens about two months after flowering, but flowering and fruiting are nearly continuous in the tropics. Individual fruits are about a half inch in diameter. The skin is rather tough and thick. The grape-like pulp is of good flavor. Each fruit contains 1 to 5 seeds. The tree has survived temperatures down to 26F. in south Florida.
