funny I was looking for one this morning, They have some very small ones at the nursery behiing SL.. They told me it was called carisa, did not say which type and II was wondering if somegrow faster than others or if they have different types..

In France we call them Mexican Orange trees..I love the smell of the flowers

Yes, they smell very nice and the fruit is tasty-a bit like a strawberry.

Years ago I found one growing out of the crack in the concrete in a San Diego parking lot and have been in love with them ever since.  They have a latex kind of like a euphorbia, even in the edible fruit.  They are very drought tolerant.

Yes, it's a Carisa.  But it's NOT a tree..... it's a shrub.  (I know..... picky, picky) VERY long and sharp thorns so great plant where you want to keep invaders in .... or out!
