Rollinia is native to South America. It is cultivated for its delicious and exotic edible fruit that tastes like lemon meringue pie! The soft spined, dodgeball-sized fruit has soft, sweet pulp and many seeds inside. In Brazil, the fruit’s native land, the Rollinia is often fermented into wine.
Rollinia is a fast-growing, medium sized tree grows that smooth, deep green leaves with deep yellow veins, a signature to the tree. Their fascinating flowers are triangular, butter-colored and hairy. Traditionally, Rollinia’s sturdy, yellow wood works well for carving canoes, masts, and main bows for the Berimbau, the Afro-Brazilian instrument named from the tree. The fruit is an excellent source of vitamin C.
The fruit does not have a long shelf life, so it is not easily grown commercially. The best way to enjoy the rare and delicious Rollinia fruit is to grow your own!
