The fruit of this tree is very sweet. Numerous different insects visit this tree including bees, wasps, and butterflies. Fruit bats are also known to eat the fruit.

Something unique about this species...there are no cultivars. It is the sole species of the genus Muntingia.

BabyK, I see you entered the photo in the database. Can you go back and enter your above comment about the plant? I find that very interesting, and I'm sure others would also!
