Araza-boi, a rare and exotic addition to any fruit aficionado's collection, is indigenous to the Amazon Rainforest in Brazil and Colombia. The large, yellow-hued fruit has a delightful sweet-sour taste and a silky, effervescent texture, making it a coveted find for Eugenia collectors.

Araza, scientifically known as Eugenia stipitata, is a remarkable fruit tree native to the Amazon rainforest. This small, yet robust tree, typically reaching up to 10-15 feet in height, is highly esteemed for its exotic fruit. The araza fruit is notable for its bright yellow skin and a uniquely tart, tropical flavor, often compared to a blend of pineapple and lemon. Rich in vitamin C, the araza is not only a delightful culinary ingredient but also valued for its nutritional benefits. Growing araza requires a warm, humid climate, akin to its native Amazonian environment. It thrives in well-drained, acidic soil and appreciates regular watering and full to partial sun exposure. Although the tree is relatively low-maintenance, it is sensitive to frost and requires protection in cooler climates. The araza is often propagated through seeds or cuttings and can start bearing fruit in as little as three years, making it a rewarding addition to tropical and subtropical home gardens.
