Description

The bark on the tree was a good indication with the blocky bark some would say it looks like alligator skin. Simple, opposite leaves, blades ovate, the bases were rounded. The fruit is a drupe and at the date of collection it was bright shiny red. Most of the drupes were in clusters of at least three.
