Native to Mexico, Mexican Achachairu or Luc's Garcinia as it is called produces bright yellow fruit which are single seeded, typically as large as tennis balls, and have both a better pulp ratio and elegant subacid flavour that is considered superior to that of its much celebrated and close relatives, achacha and mangosteen. Slow growing, attractive tree with a spreading form and large leafed foliage that is waxy and deep emerald green. Cold tolerance slightly better than that of Achacha. A very exciting offering that is sure to become a standout in the Australian exotic fruit market.
Other Names: Mexican Achachairu, Limoncillo, Luc's Garcinia, #LS
