Hello all,

Thanks in advance!

Welcome to the forums.

Duranta erecta?
Do you remember what the flowers looked like?

offirnaveh, Welcome!
Can you give us an idea of your location (state or country) which can help with identity of the plant in question.

To my eyes, the fruits on your plant look rounder in shape than Duranta; for comparison, a couple of photos of fruit of Duranta erecta:

Hey, thank you guys for trying to help out.
plantladylin I think you're right, it doesn't look like Duranta erecta because the fruits are rounder.
Also, in these pictures I can see that Duranta erecta has pointy edges on the leafs and mine doesn't.
I didn't see any flowers on my plant also.
As for my location, I'm from Israel but I don't know if that is helpful because I bought the plant from somewhere. I've made a mistake and didn't ask the name of that plant and now I just want to know how to take care of it.
Any other ideas? Thanks again guys!

I do still think it is Duranta erecta. The roundlness of your fruit compared to the pics you've seen could just be natural variation or a difference in the ripeness of your fruit versus the pics you saw. Otherwise, this is pretty identical to Duranta erecta.

Agree with Duranta. I have white flower variety with round fruit. And one purple flower variety which the fruit less round.

It seem that you have a spiny one ?

yes, so I'll go with your Duranta theory. Thank you all very much!
