Quararibea cordata Health effects and herbal facts

Known as
South American sapote

Quararibea cordata is a large, semi-deciduous, fruit tree, native to Amazon Rainforest vegetation in Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru. It bears orange-yellow fruit which are soft, juicy, sweet and contain 2-5 seeds. Fruit is usually eaten out of hand, though it may be juiced. Although generally popular, fruit quality is variable, with some trees producing insipid or fibrous fruits and little work has been done in establishing preferred cultivars. It grows best in wet, deep soils, but can be killed by floods.
