Is Cassabanana Fruit Seed a Tree or Bush?

Neither. Cassabanana (Sicana odorifera; Circubita odorifera) fruit seeds produce a rapidly growing, perennial vine that can adhere to the smoothest tree bark. Reaching up to 50 feet high, the vine has white or yellow blooms and red-orange, maroon, purple or black fruit tasting similar to cantaloupe.
