Acerola is a tropical evergreen tree that is native to Central and South America, mainly to the Antilles and Barbados areas, which is why it’s sometimes called Barbados cherry. Now we can meet Acerola in Asia, Africa and Australia. The tree is known and popular mainly for its fruits, which develop after the red-pink flowers go out of bloom. They resemble cherries, but can have up to 3 cm. At first they’re yellowish, gradually becoming red. The colour is deep, the skin smooth and glossy. They can be eaten raw, cooked, processed in sauces, juices, wines, jams and puree.
