Carica microcarpa subsp. baccata
A slender, small, fast growing tree or shrub from rainforests in Ecuador that forms a largely unbranched trunk to about 5 m tall, topped by a terminal crown of undivided or palmate leaves. The cream flowers appear between the leaves or on the trunk and are followed by small, edible red fruits. Even though apparently poorly known in cultivation, it could make a great ornamental for the tropics. Due to recent genetic evidence, this plant is now placed in the closely related genus Vasconcellea.
