Eugenia dysenterica.

Both the scientific and the common names in Portuguese refer to an important feature of this round fruit with yellow skin and juicy pulp: if consumed fresh, heated by the sun or in excessive amounts, it has a laxative effect. Endemic of the Brazilian savannah, Cerrado, the tree can be found in the states of Goiás, Mato Grosso do Sul, Tocantins, Bahia, São Paulo and Minas Gerais, and is harvested in September and October. The acidic and soft pulp, source of vitamin C, is often consumed in the form of ice creams, preserves, jams, liqueurs and juices.
