Related to cacao, the cupuassu is popular in its native Brazil, but little known elsewhere. Unlike cacao, the pulp of the large-fruited cupuassu is used rather than the seeds. Pulp is processed into beverages and desserts. A form of chocolate and cocoa butter can be made from the seeds. Fruit is highly sought after and production is thus far limited to Brazil where demand greatly exceeds supply. Leaves are large and much like the cacao tree. Fruits are borne on the trunk and apexes of main branches. Strictly tropical Cupuassu prefers a very humid environment with little temperature variation throughout the year, and mean temperatures around 24C. Trees need lots of water for good growth.

A relative of the cherimoya this plant has its origins in tropical America.

Seed selected from extremely sweet and flavoursome fruit with firm white flesh and few seeds.The foliage is delicate on young trees, and our potted plants are known for their older leaves to turn yellow and drop during transport to conserve energy. This is not a problem long term. With care and acclimatisation they will bounce back

This is a great climbing tree for kids and they can sit in it for hours going from branch to branch picking tasty fruit - one of my favourite childhood memories.

Pick them before they turn red, for they fall off when ripe and will make a mess and attract insects and mice; they will ripen from orange to red after picked with no loss in flavor.
