Caring Tips


During the spring and the less hot months of the year, this is a plant that will grow well with a once a week watering. However, during the hot summer months, it may require water each and every day to make sure that the soil does not become too dry in the heat.


This is a plant that will need full sun to thrive, but it must be used to this full exposure before give it more than six hours of sun a day. This is especially true where the temperatures often reach over 100 degrees because the leaves can get a sunburn.


It is a small tree, growing 4–6 m (13–20 feet) tall, with a trunk up to 40 cm (16 in) diameter. The aromatic leaves are pinnate, with 11–21 leaflets, each leaflet 2–4 cm long and 1–2 cm broad. The plant produces small white flowers which can self-pollinate to produce small shiny-black drupes containing a single, large viable seed. The berry pulp is edible, with a sweet flavor.
