Does anyone other than me eat this fruit?
I've noticed it is mainly grown as an ornamental (Taiwan, supposedly Japan and costal China too).
The fruits, when ripe, look like Fuyu persimmons. They oddly taste like persimmons too (no sourness) the only problem is that the ones I've eaten are quite hard.
The flowers give off the aroma of butter.
The plants have an odd columnar habit of growing.
