The fruit grows is in its ripening season during the months of September and October. The fruit grows from dingy-grey, finely-fissured bark stems. The shoots are greenish-grey and spiny, one-year wood is yellowish and bare but ends a prickle closely resembling a needle. Leafing season depends on conditions, which usually offer an earlier blossoming period. The higher the elevation, the later in the year the leaves develop. The fruit is easily distinguishable.
