Peanut Butter fruit tastes just like the name implies: like rich, creamy, delicious peanut butter but with the added bonus of a true tropical fruity flavor with a surprisingly light consistency! When ripe, the fruit transforms from a vibrant light color to a cool deep red, like your favorite shade of lipstick. The fruit is teardrop shaped and just a tad larger than a quarter or a really big grape.
Peanut Butter fruit trees are related to Acerola and native to Venezuela, Colombia, and other parts of South America. Small but intricate yellow flowers start to show in March or early spring and foliage is very attractive year round. The low-maintenance Peanut Butter Fruit tree is essential for any food forest, rare fruit collector, or tropical home landscape.
