If you are from Brazil you sure know this one. Taking eight years to produce, some people call me a very patient man.Ships March1

When I walked on the farm and saw a fruit on this tree it gave me the feeling of the second coming of Jesus Christ. As a grower of these fruits you spend most of your time waiting for that special day when that tree gives you its prized possession.
To start with this fruit claims some powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds which have been linked to fighting cancer. You may be hearing about this fruit in the near future much the way the Acai berry has made headlines. The tree is native to Brazil and is from an area near Rio de Janerio.
While eaten raw like a Berry can also be used for juice and wine as well jams, tarts and liqueurs. Very sweet when ripe grown directly on the trunk of the tree very bizarre. The dried skins have been used for asthma and gargled for tonsil issues. You will see this go in and out on availability so if you wanna try it I would suggest getting on the waiting list for sure for this one.
Fresh Gardens are growers and shippers of rare tropical fruits. Many items you may have never heard of, and that is what makes them so exciting. Most have been brought from South and central America and Asia. Although well known in those areas very few know of them here in the United States. That's my job as a grower of these items: to excite and get you into trying these exotic tropical fruit for the first time!
There are only a few areas in the United states these are grown and The Redland which is a 100 year plus historic agricultural growing region is one. We are south of Miami in Homestead just before you enter the keys. You are invited to vist our farm for free as a tropical fuit of the month customer. We grow for you !!
