Elaeagnus latifolia is an evergreen shrub that can grow up to ten feet tall. It has alternate pinnately compound leaves. The plant gives off a bright red and speckled berry around the size of a grape or ~0.75 cm in diameter. The ripe fruit is pulpy with sour taste.
E. latifolia is widely distributed from Southeastern Asia to the slopes of the Himalayas. They inhabit dense swamps at about 1,500 feet above sea level in the Himalayas as well as dwelling in vast forest openings in Nepal. It is suitable for growing in moist soil with any pH value and can also adapt to growing in regions where the soil is dry. Since E. latifolia can thrive in both moist and dry conditions, it can tolerate the most intense droughts. E. latifolia shares a symbiotic relationship with soil-dwelling bacteria that perform nitrogen fixation. The fruit is considered "unusual" because the fruit contains several "good" fatty acids, and was investigated for possible use against cancer.
