Another gem from the Eugenia family, Pitomba is an apricot-colored, round to pear-shaped, and has a soft, melting, juicy flesh with a highly aromatic slightly acidic flavor. It is similar in taste and color to an apricot and is rich in vitamin C.

Hailing from Brazil, the Pitomba can reach heights of 20 feet and a width of 15 feet. Its lush foliage boasts bronzey hairs on young leaves, while matured ones are a rich green. With a trunk resembling a guava, its flowers bloom in late spring or early summer, and in warmer climates, twice a year, producing 1-1.25 inch, orange-yellow fruit.
