A highly ornamental shrub with spreading branches and aromatic foliage. The Brazilian cherry has delicate white flowers that are followed within 3 weeks by a ribbed fruit that changes from green to orange to maroon-red when fully ripe. The young bronze foliage turns a glossy deep green when mature and deep red in cold, dry weather. The fruit is delicious eaten out-of-hand or as an ingredient in jelly, sauce and pies. Refrigeration enhances the flavour and makes these a good substitute for strawberries. Weed warning: This tasty and very hardy pumpkin shaped berry is popular as a kids treat. While in a urban situation it holds little risk however the fruit is very appealing to birds and when planted in regional areas it has been observed to seed into native vegetation remnants, where it can continue to self seed and inhibit the growth of native flora. It has the potential to grow in open sun and shaded areas. If in close proximity to subtropical rainforest remnants the tree should be netted during fruiting to avoid introduction into the native vegetation.
