It grows up to 25 meters tall and features compound pinnate leaves and clusters of small white flowers. The tree produces peculiar red fruit which splits open when ripe, revealing shiny black seeds and a soft, edible yellow flesh, commonly consumed in various cuisines, particularly in the Caribbean. However, only the ripe fruit is edible as the seeds and unripe fruit are toxic.
