About a dozen of these small trees that grow to about 10 metres are scattered across the Reserve. The glossy dark green leaves are distinctly jointed where the petiole meets the leaf blade and are quite strongly scented when crushed. The fruit is glossy, four-angled with a ripply surface and up to 12 mm in diameter. The fruit are edible but have a rather resinous taste. (June 2010)
