Some species are bred for the production of edible fruits and others for the production of excellent quality wood. Diospyros digyna is an evergreen tree up to 8-10 m tall, native to Mexico. It has an upright habit with expanded foliage, especially in isolated specimens. The lanceolate leaves are large, shiny and intense green in color.
