Katuk is a perennial shrub native to the lowland, rainforest understory of the warm tropics. It is a familiar plant in home gardens in the wetter parts of Southeast Asia. It grows up to 3.5 m unless pruned. Katuk leaves are compound, with each leaf comprised of dark green, oval-shaped leaflets (5-6 cm long) on each side of a leaf stalk. Yellow-to red flowers and marble-size (1-1.5 cm wide), white- to-purple fruit are borne on katuk’s leafy, semi-woody branches. Mature fruit will split, revealing black seeds inside.
