Sweet Pittosporum (Pittosporum undulatum)


Pittosporum undulatum is a tree growing to 15 m tall with wavy (undulating) leaf edges. It carries conspicuous orange woody fruits about 1 cm in diameter for several months after flowering in spring or early summer. It is sometimes also known as sweet pittosporum, native daphne, Australian cheesewood, Victorian box or mock orange. Pittosporum is a fast growing tree, and has become invasive in parts of Australia where it is not indigenous. It is also highly invasive in South Africa, the Caribbean, Hawaii, the Azores and southern Brazil
