The tree can reach up to 12 meters in height, but it is more commonly found at around 2 to 5 meters tall. Its bark is smooth, light gray, and sometimes with small cracks. The leaves are evergreen, simple, and opposite, with a glossy dark green color on the upper side and a lighter green on the underside.

The fruit’s color ranges from green to yellow to red, depending on its ripeness, and it has a thin, edible skin with a juicy pulp. The fruit is sweet-tart and has a flavor reminiscent of cherry and guava.
