Small deciduous tree or large shrub with droopy and occasionally spiny branches, typically grown for its fruit, especially in Asia. Its small leaves are glossy green and finely serrated, and turn yellow in fall. Its white to yellowish green flowers, appearing in leaf axils in spring, are small and not showy, but they are fragrant. The inch-long fruit has a large single seed, and matures from green to red, with a crisp taste reminiscent of an apple. When left to further mature, the fruits turn wrinkly reddish brown like a date.
