White Indigoberry

(Randia aculeata)

The leaves are nearly stalkless, entire, ovate, and less than two inches long. The flowers are fragrant, white with 5 petals, borne along the branch or clustered at the leaf axils, appearing year-round. After flowering, the female plants have showy white fruits that give this plant its common name. The berry-like fruit has a brittle white hull with bluish-black (indigo) pulp and an average of 8 seeds inside. It provides food and nesting sites for birds, as well as nectar for butterflies.
