Pot Size

Native to Brazil, the rare, bright yellow Pitangatuba fruit has a very unique and extremely powerful flavor.  Pitangatuba fruit tastes simultaneously sweet, and acidic, with a apricot-meets-mango-like flavor that's really unlike anything you've ever experienced. 

Bright yellow Pitangatuba fruit is very soft and full of juice, with a unique tartness that's also remarkably similar to apricot. The incredibly fragrant fruit has a brief window of ripeness despite it's nearly ever bearing nature, and will likely never be found in grocery stores due to its short short shelf life. Stout and shrub-like, unlike other Eugenia species, Pitangatuba is known to flower quickly once established.  Pitangatuba fruit trees are very fast growing and thrive in subtropical-level humidity and full sun and light shade.

    Less than a week after receiving this tree it’s already putting out new foliage when I put it outside. Excited for it to fruit in the future

    Healthy Little Plant

    Arrived in good condition with maybe 3 nodes of growth (maybe 5" tall). 2 weeks later it already looks like it is trying to push more growth.

    Nice plant, good service

    I was hesitant to buy fruit trees that would be shipped but everything arrived in terrific condition! The way they secure the fruit trees for shipping is pretty amazing. I would not hesitate to buy from them again

    Nice, healthy plant at a reasonable price. I bought this plant because of its interesting fruit and it will grow well in my existing greenhouse conditions. So far so good!
