This evergreen tree has large dark green leaves, flowers that open in October and fruit which matures the following April as the earliest fruit of the season. The fruits are round, oval or pear-shaped, and are borne in clusters. Each fruit is a drupe with a thin yellow colored rind enclosing an aromatic melting sweet white pulp, surrounding one to several large brown seeds.
