Red Ironwood Tree

Red Ironwood TreeThe Red Ironwood (Reynosia septentrionalis, Urb.), called also "Darling plum," grows wild in southern Florida, and is cultivated to some extent for its fruit.

It is a pretty little tree, clothing its heavy, hard wood with bright red bark. The purple or black plums are sweet and of pleasant flavour.
