Description: Native to Amazonian Brazil, an extremely rare guava family fruit that is not widely known. A small, bushy, multi-stemmed tree that can be maintained at under 2m (6') or trained as a standard with a single trunk. Its outstretched weeping branches produce numerous round fruit that look like hanging tennis balls. The sweet fruit are very acidic with a pH similar to that of lemons, resulting in a sour taste when eaten raw. After removing the seeds, the yellowish-green pulp can be used in a variety of ways, such as juice, jam, ice-creams, hot sauce and even liquor. Boil quickly however, as the flavour is easily lost when cooked. Fruits are best harvested while green or just turning yellow, as they bruise easily if harvested when mature. Contains a moderate amount of macro & micro nutrients such as vitamins C, B and E. In a serving of Araza there is 2x the amount of vitamin C compared to a serving of oranges.
