Luma apiculata

An unusual evergreen tree to 15' or more in warmer areas, or dense shrub to 3' x 2' if it dies back to the ground each winter, with leaves like a huckleberry. The bark turns orange like madrone and peels off to reveal white to pink new bark. Clear white flowers with multiple white stamens appear generously in mid-summer, followed in fall by round, dark purple/black, 1/2 inch fruit with soft, translucent flesh, and an aromatic, juicy, sweet flavor. They are eaten fresh and also make a great cheese cake topping! We offer seedlings. Prune it to make an excellent hedge.
