 Rheedia longifolia
Family: Clusiaceae / Guttiferae
Charichuela, Bacuri Azedo, Sour Bacuri, Bumpy Lemon, Garcinia
Origin: Tropical America
Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunRegular waterEdibleSeaside, salt tolerant plant

Fruit resembles a bumpy lemon, with an interior like lemony cotton candy. Yellow, sometimes spotty fruit with a white-translucent pulp having an aromatic, acidic flavor. Related to the mangosteen, it remains a relatively unknown, but attractive fruit. A small tree, usually only to 5-15ft, but taller in its native range. Much hardier than its famous relative the mangosteen, and can survive short periods of temperatures below 32F. Trees are very salt tolerant, but not too tolerant of acidic soils. Slow growers and can be maintained for container culture. Propagation usually by seed.

Very similar species - Garcinia acuminata, or G. madruno (Rheedia madruno).

Related species: Rheedia macrophylla, Rheedia Aristata (Cuban Mangosteen).
