Saurauia madrensis

This plant is in the kiwi family, so it is not surprising that the fruits are supposed to be edible and very sweet. However, they are also small and seedy, so maybe they are not worth the trouble of picking them. I guess I don't have to worry about how much work it is to pick the fruit because, although they grow well in this climate, apparently they do not fruit. Very pretty plant with clusters of white flowers and big leaves with prominate veins. In bloom now at the UC Botanical Garden.
