Turk’s Cap makes Fruit

My parents’ neighbor, Doris, gave me this plant many years ago.


I found fruits on it for the first time today.


The flower’s name is Turk’s Cap for obvious reasons.


It is also called Sleepy Hibiscus because the blooms never open.

Turk’s cap bloom with caterpillar,

It’s scientific name is Malaviscus arboreus.

The fruits look like little apples, manzanillas.


The fruit breaks up into pieces that look like tiny apple slices.


The Humming birds love the flowers.
