A cousin of the mangosteen, Achachas 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. Originating from the Bolivian part of the Amazon basin in South America, the Bolivian name of the fruit is Achachairu and translated means honey kiss. Achacha is protected by Plant Breeders Right (PBR) and cannot be grown or propagated without licence agreement with Achacha Fruit Group

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.



An African fruit that can be eaten raw or cooked. Fruit is pleasant with a sub acid flavour. Trees also produce a good amount of biomass and are well suited to agroforestry. Fruit is high in protein, fat and vitamins. Fruits can range in colour from light pink to purple. Trees can grow up to 10-20m.

Rose Apple

Cold hardy, growing in Melbourn, seedling and pushing out new growth. Dose not mind the cold at all

I like these fruits because they are so easy to grow and don't get fruit fly. The fruit is better/moister if the tree is watered well when fruiting. Tastes like turkish delight. The new growth is quite red so it looks good in the garden also.

We used to have this in the backyard. That recipe for the dip is , mix 1/4 cup soy sauce, add 2 tbs sugar and 2 tbs sweet chili sauce, great dip for a chopped up rose apple or jambu.

I planted two of these some years ago... possibly 6 years ago. They prefer frost free, which isn't this place, but have survived even the black frost. I honestly cannot remember whether they were grafted or not... I think not... I bought them from Dale...

Rose apples and similar lilly pilly type fruit are eaten raw with the dip Dawne describes. Often combined with peanuts, pineapple, soy cake, jicama, mung sprouts, water spinach in a Malaysian salad called rojak. The exact recipe should be online.

Rose Apple

It's true - this was already in our garden when we bought it - the flowers are lovely, the fruits genuinely smell like rose petals (and taste delicate) and it's very hardy but extremely attractive native (big dark leaves). Kids even ate fruit this avo!
