Rheedia gardneriana.

Native to the Brazilian Atlantic rainforest, this fruit has whitish, very sweet pulp and a skin that ranges from orange to yellow, when the fruit is ripe. With subtle and refreshing taste, it can be eaten fresh or used to make juices, caipirinhas, confections and ice creams. As devastation of native forests escalated, bacupari became more and more scarce in Brazil. Today, there’s no commercial cultivation, but the harmoniously-looking tree can still be found in many backyards and orchards, mainly in Rio Grande do Sul and Santa Catarina.
