Where male and female plants exist the females produce abundant orange fruit which persist into winter.

The fruit is used widely in products for consumption, as is the juice which is rich in oils. It separates on crushing into 3 layers. The upper layers are used for creams and liniments, the lower, the juice for edible products.
