Upright single-trunked tree with dark green glossy leaves. Does well in part shade, and rich moist soil, where it can grow over 50′ tall. Maintains a shorter, shrubbier profile in open full sun. Small yellow bell shaped flowers give way to green colored fruits that slowly turn orange as they ripen in Fall. The fruit has a very astringent flavor that sweetens as they ripen in Fall. Frost is said to improve flavor.  Leaves turn yellow to orange in fall.
