Araza (Arazza, Arazá, Araçá-boi, Amazonian Pear or Amazonian Pear; in Latin – Eugenia stipitata). At first, this heat-loving tree grew in the forests of the Amazon basin, later the plant began to be actively cultivated in Brazil, Ecuador, Peru, as well as in Central America and the Caribbean. This fruit does not tolerate transportation very well, so you will not find it outside the growing regions.
Fruits in diameter, they can be from 4 to 12 centimeters (such large ones reach a weight of 750 grams). Their peel is yellow, it is thin and, depending on the variety, can be smooth or slightly velvety. Juicy, fragrant yellow flesh is very acidic, so araus is rarely eaten just like that, in its raw form, but is actively used for compotes, jelly. Inside the fetus there are several large elongated “seeds”.
Due to the huge amount of vitamin C, as well as the high content of trace elements (potassium, magnesium, calcium, phosphorus) and the macroelement of zinc, arase is excellent as a general strengthening product.
