Casasia is a genus of flowering plants in the family Rubiaceae.[1] These shrubs or small trees occur on the Caribbean islands and in one case (Seven-year Apple, C. clusiifolia) in Florida.[2] Some of the ten accepted species were formerly placed elsewhere, e.g. in the related genip-tree genus (Genipa), in Gardenia or in Randia.[2]
