Malpighia glabra or the Barbados Cherry Tree is a very versatile shrub or tree that became prominent shortly following World War II. Some 300 trees were planted following the war to slow soil erosion, and several thousand were distributed to war veterans to add to their Victory Gardens. When it was discovered that the fruits of this tree were extremely high in ascorbic acid (Vitamin C), commercial production of these trees for agricultural use began. Ultimately, it was discovered that mass production of these fruits for Vitamin C was not nearly as efficient as artificial Vitamin C production and agricultural growth of these plants greatly decreased.

The Barbados Cherry can be classified as tropical or subtropical as mature trees can survive brief dips below freezing. While the Barbados Cherry typically bears fruits in the summer months. This fruit bearing plant can very easily be pruned and shaped into tree form or a shrub depending on desired growth habit.
