Achachairu (Orange Mangosteen) Plants - FREE ISLANDWIDE DELIVERY AVAILABLE
By Nature Touch Farms From Jamaica
Garcinia humilis, known commonly as achachairu or achacha, is a small tree with a pyramidal canopy prolifically-fruiting tree related to the mangosteen. It grows in the southern part of the Amazon basin in the central area of Bolivia. Achacha are tangy and refreshing with a delicate subtle sweetness, a fine balance between sweetness and acidity, producing an unusual taste sensation. Fruit should be picked mature as it does not ripen further on storage. In addition to having a great flavor, Achachairu fruit has more flesh relative to its weight, when compared to the renowned purple mangosteen. Its rind is also palatable and easily utilized for beverages. The Bolivian name of the fruit is Achachairu and translated means honey kiss in Guarani language. Nutritionally, Achachas are valuable source of vitamin C and folate, as well as potassium, riboflaving and antioxidants.
Leaves are glossy, darker green on top but lighter underneath, opposite, simple and thick, leathery, and brittle. Flowers are cream or white.
