Araz produces fruit throughout the year, and provides 2-4 harvest per year due the short period between fruit set and harvesting which is approx 3 months. The araza is a shrub or small tree 3-12 m, with densely branched habit. The flaking bark has brown to reddish colour. Fruits are pale green turning to bright yellow when ripe with a thin, velvety skin enclosing a juicy, aromatic, acid, thick pulp enclosing usually 12 seeds.
