CASANA (Cyphomandra cajanumensis)
Lots of sweet passionfruit-like fruit, ripe May-September. The tree looks similar to tamarillo with the large soft leaves and requires similar growing conditions. They grow well when planted near the drip lines of larger trees with well established root systems that keep the water pumping up. This keeps the roots of the casana from becoming waterlogged. Bananas do that as well. Protect from wind and frost.
