Pitangatuba (Eugenia neonitida)
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.
