This attractive tree has clusters of yellow flowers that are followed by an abundance of dark red fruit to around 2.5cm long. The rich, sweet flesh has a texture similar to peanut butter. The fruit can be eaten fresh or made into milk shakes.

What months does this fruit? | Chris - Hervey Bay, QLD 20-Oct-2008
Easy to grow shrub / small tree. Likes good drainage and organic fertiliser. Plenty of water in the growing season. Flowers Spring through to Summer. Seeds / nuts are green at first, then colour up when ripe in late Summer. Tasty snack! | David White - West Ryde Sydney, NSW 29-Dec-2008
This is not a tip but a question. Does anyone know why a lot of flowerbuds fall off without opening? Hundreds of mine have dropped off and only now some flowers are opening and the fruits are starting to form. | Helen Shaw - Kenmore Brisbane, QLD 27-Nov-2009
Planted 3 years ago on well drained slope and has been fruiting since December. Still flowering and fruiting in March with constant supply of ripe fruit. Note that flowers dropped last season without fruiting, but lots this season. | Anthony Florence - Townsville, QLD 16-Mar-2012
Love this tree. Very pretty and can stand cold, windy, exposed sites. Unusual tasting fruit. Sweet but pasty. Takes a while to get used to but very yummy. Sweet,delicate and best eaten straight off the tree as soon as it turns red. | Min Taylor - Rosevale, QLD 25-Feb-2013
