Knockaway Tree

The Knockaway Tree is a semi-evergreen tree with dark green oval leaves which are very rough on upper surface giving it another common name, Sandpaper Tree.  It has small white fragrant frowers in 2-3 inch long panicles. The edible fruit is yellowish orange, sweet and juicy.  It is eaten by birds and animals.  The fruits are about 1/4 inch diameter and showy when abundant.  It becomes round topped tree on favorable sites but often a suckering shrub on dry sites with poor soil.   It is uncommon in cultivation outside southern Texas where it is native.
