Spondias dulcis Parkinson.
Between December and July, the tips of each branch of this tree native to the Pacific Islands (such as Fiji) are filled with bunches of this oval, yellow skinned fruit. Also known in Portuguese as cajarana or taperebá-do-sertão, the sweet and sour, yellowish-orange pulp is juicy, aromatic, and refreshing. It is most commonly used to prepare juices, ice creams, jams, compotes and savory sauces. The ubiquitous trees growing in the North and Northeast become part of the landscape in the semi- arid regions of Brazil.
