The tropical fruit Araza was domesticated by Indios in the western Amazonas (Peru, Ecuador, Columbia, Brazil) and is planted there, since the 80s also in Central America by small-scale farmers. It is planted along with other fruit or nut trees. This form of cultivation is sustainable. The juicy yellow fruit flesh is bitter and hence especially suited for refreshing drinks. Thanks to the stabilizing effect of the intrinsic pectins, Araza is especially suited to the manufacture of exotic milk products. Araza has a unique aroma, somewhere between pineapple and mango.
