A seashore shrub fruiting

Unripe fruits of the Jambu Kera (Glochidion littorale) -belonging to the Euphorbiaceae family
Zone C
Ripe fruits of the  Jambu Kera
The 'Jambu Kera' (Malay) typically grows on coastal areas.  I had planted one a few years ago at Zone C for botanical interest.  The seashore shrub has produced some fruits.  The small fruits are edible and so are the young leaves.  There is a small depression at the apex of the fruit looking like a cute dimple.
