A unique fruit from South Asia, Phalsa the Skittles of the fruit world. Small reddish-blue berries that are sweet and tart, with soft almost crunchy texture and a single seed inside. Traditionally, phalsa is eaten fresh and juiced. Phalsa is a subtropical deciduous shrub or small tree that has long skinny droopy branches when mature. It bears small clusters of yellow blossoms in the spring. It's a fast-growing plant, with most plants producing berries in their second year. Easy to prune - cut the whole plant down every winter!
