Hexachlamys edulis (Uvaia do Campo) is native to parts of Argentina, Bolivia, and Brazil, but it is now grown in most parts of the world.
Hexachlamys edulis is a small tree that typically grows 10-20 feet tall. This ethnomedical plant has unique medical benefits, as it can be used as an effective diuretic, antiseptic and decongestant. It prefers to be grown in full sun or semi-shade and requires regular watering. In general, it is easy to care for and is considered to be fairly drought-tolerant. In colder climates, it can be grown in pots for easy protection against frosty conditions.
The fruits of this plant are edible and taste great. Fruits are quite small, about 1 inch in diameter, and come in a variety of colors, including orange and yellow. The pulp is very juicy, sweet, and sour and when fully ripe, the fruits have a bad smell. However, when consumed, they are quite sweet and have a pleasant flavor.
Hexachlamys edulis is a superfood that provides many health benefits. It is known to be high in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, making it an excellent choice for a healthy diet. It is also a great source of fiber and essential fatty acids.
