The fruits of Phylica rigidifolia appear in small clusters at stem-tips during spring.
They are obovoid in shape with a ring near the tip where the velvety calyx could reach, forming a crown. Inside this ring or crown the upper surface is shiny, bald and green on the unripe fruits in picture. The calyx tips are dark, spaced along the perimeter of the ring, tonsure-like. A short brown style remnant is visible in the centre of the fruit's crown.
The fruit becomes about 8 mm in diameter, turning black when it ripens. Undeveloped fruits or closed flowers have small brown star-shapes on top of the small velvety globules (Le Roux, et al, 2005; Bond and Goldblatt, 1984; iNaturalist).
