A tropical tree native to tropical Asia and Australia. It has been cultivated since prehistoric times​. The species is lauded for the aesthetic appeal of its tree, flowers, and fruit, the latter being oblong-shaped and typically dark red, with some varieties sporting white or pink skins. Its flesh is white and encases a large seed, offering a bland but refreshing flavor that can be stewed into jams with brown sugar and ginger​​. Called Perita in Colombia the fruit is occasionally sold in outdoor markets. Photographed in the department of Magdalena, Colombia.
