Plinia salticola (Dwarf Mulchi) is native to the southern tip of North America, namely Costa Rica and Panama. The tree is slow growing but rather precocious flowering at just 4-5 years old and takes the form of a small bush if left to grow without pruning. The tree produces yellow 3cm. fruits with scant pulp which is sweet and a bity spicy. The tree can produce multiple times per year after several years of production. The leaves are similar to Plinia inflata and Plinia edulis.
