The Costada is an extremely rare variety, with larger leaves than well-known common varieties. The Costada is a beautiful, ornamental tree that produces tasty, sweet fruit. The fruit of the Costada is dark red in colour, with a sweet, smooth velvet-like pulp much sweeter than the black varieties. The Costada makes a great potted specimen or will do well in part shade when planted out. A great plant for collectors or those wanting to have fruit sooner rather than later, as the Costada fruits within 4 years.
