"A tree 5-15 m high (to 20 m where indigenous), with a trunk to 40 cm in diameter, often thorny on trunk and branches, cultivated in gardens and experimental plots near sea level.  The sepals are greenish yellow, the anthers yellow, and the fruits maturing pink to dark red or purplish" (Smith, 1981; pp. 637-639). Trees occur in lowland rainforest from sea level up to about 1600 m. Trees are mostly self sown. Root suckers are commonly produced. "Malesia, but rare in the Moluccas and New Guinea, and not indigenous in southeastern Asia as noted by various authors; the species is widely cultivated and often naturalized in other tropical areas" (Smith, 1981; pp. 637-639).

Characterized as moderately invasive in Rarotonga, Cook Islands (Meyer, 2000; p. 89). Widely naturalized in Rotuma, Fiji, and in Tonga, Futuna and Samoa (Smith, 1981; pp. 637-639). Scattered specimens but not a problem as an invader in American Samoa (Olin Colin Steele, personal communication).

F. rukam var. micronesica Fosb. & Sachet is native to Micronesia and is found in the Federated States of Micronesia (Chuuk (Moen, Dublon, Tol, Fefan), Pohnpei) and the Republic of Palau (Koror, Ngarakabesang, Aulupse'el, Urukthapel, Peleliu, Angaur) (Fosberg et al., 1979; p. 174). Listed as present but not invasive in these locations by Swarbrick (1997). Swarbrick also lists it as being present on Guam.

F. jangomas (Lour.) Rauschel is reported by Cronk and Fuller (1995; p. 241) to be a problem species in the Cook Islands while F. indica (Burm.f.) Merr. [=F. ramontchi L'Herit] is reported to be invasive in Florida (US).

Flacourtia indica is cultivated in Hawai‘i (Staples et al., 2000; p. 65).
