A deciduous shrub to small tree, in Florida limited to mesic woodlands of the central panhandle. The range extends through much of the central and eastern United States - west into Texas, northwest to Nebraska, north into Ontario, and as far northeast as New York.
Trees can grow to 46 feet tall. The maroon flowers are from 2-5 cm (less than 1 inch to 2 inches) wide when opened, on pedicels of 1cm (just under a half inch) or longer, appearing in late spring and early summer. Leaves are alternate and entire, from 15-30 cm (6-12 inches) long and with mostly acuminate tips. The edible fruit is oblong, greenish-yellow and 5-15cm (2-6 in.) long.
