Description: An exceptionally rare species in cultivation from the upland area of Dalat in southern Vietnam, where this species was very conspicuous with its bronzy foliage. From seed we collected at the highest peak, from a small exposed tree to only 3m tall bearing only small dark green glossy leaves to only 8 cm long on bright red petioles in these conditions. Still retaining some ripe fruit when we were there in the autumn of 2003, unusual as it had just finished flowering and bearing the embryos of the next fruit. Best grown is some shelter ideally with some overhead protection from late frosts.
