A pretty, bright orange fruit with large, highly aromatic and somewhat sour pulp---popular as a tasty flavoring for juices.
A small, bushy tree, usually to no more than 10ft. The fruits grow up to 3-4" and ripen to a bright, yellow-orange color. Fruiting can happen in 3 years from seed.
Unknown. Probably not that frost hardy.
Grow in well-drained, rich, moist soil. Water regularly. Protect from cold temperatures. The plant is fairly compact and should make a nice container specimen. Grow in full sun to part-shade.
By seeds, which germinate slowly and should not be dried out. Germination generally takes 1-6 months.
The tree is fairly rare in cultivation, but the fruits are of nice quality and the tree is occasionally grown for this reason.
Native to South America, particularly Brazil. Only occasionally cultivated in this region.
