A large Southern shrub or small tree.Height 6' to 18' and leaves about 4" long.The small blackish fruits appear in Sept-Oct and are eaten by foxes, quail and songbirds.

This tree is common along the fencerows of the South, as the seeds are deposited there by the birds who eat the fruit.

The fruits can also be eaten by humans, but rarely are.
