Description

The Natal plum is a beautiful tropical shrub grown mostly as a flowering landscape specimen, but also for its small fruits, which taste like cranberries and are used in jams and jellies. Like Indian hawthorn, Natal plum is used frequently in commercial landscapes in warmer climates, where its pretty white star-shaped flowers and fragrance are highly prized. Natal plum is not related to the true plum (Prunus × domestica), but is so named because of the shape and color of the 1- to 2-inch fruits. Natal plum has ovate leaves that are dark green and leathery, with a glossy sheen. If you have smelled orange blossoms, you know what Natal plum flowers smell like. Each flower features five waxy petals arranged in a star shape. They are usually 1 to 3 inches long and are formed along the branch in an opposite arrangement.
