An unusual, yet irresistible variety of fruit is produced from the Curuiri (or pitomba-da-baía) tree. The small, golden fruit is juicy with an apricot-like texture and mild, tangy flavor. This fruiting tree prefers full sun, but is surprisingly resilient to wind and other storms, making it a winning selection for a Miami garden.
Theobroma cacao ‘Orange’
The orange cacao tree is a welcome addition to a modest garden. This small tree produces flowers and then orange fruits, called cacao pods, on its trunk. While this tree is attractive all on its own, the real beauty is that seeds from its pods can be used to make chocolate!

Zamia integrifolia, the coontie, is a Miami plant with a national claim to fame – it’s the only cycad native to North America! It is also listed by the state of Florida as a threatened species. Plants in this family grow to only about a foot-and-a-half tall, and while they are not shrubs, they are shrub-like and their thick, starchy underground stem was an important food source for many of Florida’s native people. These hardy plants prefer a place outdoors with full sun.
Pinus elliottii var. densa
Pinus elliottii var. densa is commonly referred to outside of Miami as the southern slash pine, and is the only native pine species of south Florida.
