Thaumatococcus daniellii, also known as Sweet Prayer Plant, is a large flowering herb with purple flowers and rhizomatous rootstock. It is a natural source of thaumatin, a low-calorie sweetener and flavour modifier protein. The leaves are ovate-elliptic, large, and papery. The fruits are covered in a fleshy red aril, trigonal in shape and dark red/brown when fully ripe. Each fruit contains three black, hard seeds which can be eaten raw or cooked.

The leaves, on the other hand, are used for wrapping foods and for boiling foods.
