A small tree would be the best definition, though it can be also described as a large shrub.

Well I'm off to a good start then :lol: but the fruit may as well have been sliced and diced, won't get me anywhere!

Family or Genus with an S? I think it is Schinus but actually not quite convinced (4 sepals?)

I missed your question :-(

male and female flowers are borne on separate plants (dioecious) and this male one is an ornamental specimen, but the female is more ornamental (though I have not seen one in Malta yet)

Piny: really never seen? It is everywhere grown in Malta- usually as hedges (Maglio Garden), but rather large one are grown in Ganado Garden (right hand side of the upper entrance).
MWP: there are many many many females, producing the fruits, commonly grown between the males (in the hedges of Maglio). Interestingly, there are also shrubs with both sexes in a flower (I just remember that I had this one in an earlier quiz???) :shock:

"The Maglio Gardens is a long and narrow strip where novices of the order were expected to exercise." Is it that near the Graneries (il-Gnien ta' Hdejn il-Fossos) ?

That's it, 'Il-Mall' in Maltese.
