Pitangatuba or star cherry, is a golden fruit looks like a star and tastes like a mix of juicy mango, tangy passion fruit, and sweet pineapple. Its acid-sweet combination makes it totally unique. And here's the best part: despite its love for warmth, you can keep it cozy and warm indoors during the cooler months, so you can enjoy this tropical treat anywhere!

Pitangatuba can be cultivated as a bush or petite tree. It would make a delightful addition to any food-focused landscape, thanks to its easy-to-handle stature, gorgeous dark green leaves, resistance to pests and illness, and heavenly fruit. It thrives in full or partial sunlight and is suitable for growing in containers or the earth.

Pitangatuba fruits year-round and has heavy seasons in spring and summer. The delicate fruit spoils quickly, making it difficult to find quality. Eat it fresh or use in drinks and desserts!
