The surface is velvety and coarse to the touch. The flowers are small and have deep red waxy petals. The fruits, which appear from May to August, are aggregates of round or oblong berries colored deep orange or a rich red. Each contains numerous seeds encased in a translucent pulp.Uvaria rufa fruit plants in Keralais now available in our farms.
