Strawberry Tree

Muntingia calabura

Planted yesterday, as well. Although it bears red edible fruit that look like a red blueberry, this short-lived, fast-growing tree receives its name due to the white flowers which resemble strawberry flowers, not due to its fruit flavor. Most people that have tasted the fruit say it tastes like cotton candy. Click here for a great photo & additional info from the Garden Web tropical fruits forum.
