Fruit a subglobose or obovoid capsule up to 12 cm. in diam. splitting into 5–7 longitudinal sections each with a shallow median rib, subfleshy at first but drying out as it splits and the sections tending to remain connate at the base and apex; pedicels elongating to 5 cm. long in fruit.
Seeds many, c. 7 mm. in diam., subglobose or angularly compressed, densely tuberculate.
Ovary ovoid, longitudinally striate, slightly tuberculate, slightly puberulous near the apex; placentas 5–7 with numerous ovules; style 4 mm. long; stigma somewhat peltate with 5–7 folds.
Stamens c. 50; filaments 2–4 mm. long; anthers linear, 6–8 mm. long, dehiscing by apical pores.
Petals 8, c. 2 x 1 cm. in male flowers, c. 3 x 1.3 cm. in bisexual flowers, white with golden-yellow veins towards the base, oblong-elliptic, rounded at the apex, margin irregularly undulate.
Sepals 1–2 x 0–9 cm., imbricate, very concave, broadly elliptic, glandular on those parts exposed in bud.
Flowers often, but not invariably, appearing with the very young leaves, male or bisexual, in axillary fascicles of (1) 2–6; pedicels 1.5–6 cm. long, densely purple-glandular, with a minute, triangular bracteole at the base.
Leaf-lamina 13–26 x 7.5–16 cm., elliptic or ovate-oblong, sometimes slightly unequal-sided, apex obtuse, bases lightly cordate, margins entire or slightly undulate, lateral nerves in 6–10 pairs, prominent on both sides, looping within the margin, venation laxly reticulate, young leaves shining and glutinous on both surfaces, minutely glandular-tubercular, minute gland-dots can also be seen on the undersides of all but very old leaves; petiole c. 2 mm. long, thick; stipules c. 2 mm. long, subulate, very caducous.
