The Borojo is a small, evergreen tree about 2-3 meters tall and it is dioecious, meaning there are separate male and female plants.
The male plant has clusters of fragrant white flowers whereas the females have a single white flower at the tips of branches. Only the female plants produce fruits. The Borojo fruit is edible, is 7 to 12 centimeters in diameter, and its color is green. The pulp is brown, acid, and very dense (consisting mostly of fructose and glucose). The Borojo fruit has around 90 to 600 seeds, and it is considered ripe when it falls to the ground.
