The white flowers are fragrant and large. The fruit is as large as a goose egg with a purple skin and delicious pulp when ripe. For best flavor, the fruit should never be picked, it must fall naturally. If it is allowed to wrinkle a bit after collecting, it becomes sweet ambrosia. The plant is very productive in warm areas. Vigorous and blooms from late spring until fall. Excellent for a sunny location and makes a good, rapidly growing screen for an unsightly fence or outbuilding. Sun, rich, reasonably well drained soil, medium watering.
