A fast growing, flood tolerant and sun loving tree reaching heights of 4-15m. It can bear fruit from 3 years old. The large fruit is yellow when ripe and covered in soft spikes. The pulp is very sweet comparable in taste to lemon meringue pie.
The tree does best in subtropical/tropical conditions and is intolerant of cold. High humidity is required for pollination and regular watering required during fruit and flowering seasons. Fruits picked when beginning to turn yellow.
