Description: From seed we collected on the Azores in 2009 from within the main crater where Lagoa Azul is sited on São Miguel. Here they formed small evergreen trees with smooth silver-coloured bark on upright trunks, with spreading branches on relatively short trees to 4m tall. With lanceolate to obovate-oblong long pointed leaves, lustrous dark green above with raised veins below, bearing cymes of yellow to green flowers held on long stalks (peduncles) followed by large glossy black ellipsoid fruit. Best grown in sun to part shade in a freely drained acid-neutral soil with some moisture retention not tested for hardiness, but only expected to take -5C for short periods.
