Pitomba has an apricot taste but smaller then an apricot. Left alone they grow into a wild bush; however Ive seen them pruned tight into topiaries and beautiful patio plants. When they are pruned tight they are truly a classic and elegant tree/bush.

I have many customers growing these in containers and green houses. They seem to be quite hardy.
