When in fruit both the tree and the ground below are bright red. The fruit is tart and refreshing like a Granny Smith apple. The tree is highly attractive and forms a very dense crown making it an ideal shade tree. Unlike other lilly pillies the new growth is a pale green. It is slow growing initially making it perfect for containers.
