This is another small tree found both wild and cultivated in southern Brazil, especially in the vicinity of Rio de Janeiro. It grows to 30 or 40 feet in height, and has foliage which resembles that of some of the European oaks. The leaves are elliptic-ovate in form, about 2 inches long, with the venation depressed above and salient below. The flowers resemble those of the guava. The fruits are oblate in form, nearly 1 inch in diameter, orange-yellow in color, and crowned with the large disk and persistent calyx-segments. The surface is somewhat wrinkled, and the thin skin surrounds a soft, yellow flesh in which numerous seeds are embedded. The flavor is similar to that of the guava but less pleasant. This plant, sometimes listed as Campomanesia Fenzliana, Glaziou, has been introduced into Florida, where it grows well and has withstood a temperature of 26° above zero without injury. The fruit is used in the same manner as the guava, but is not of great value.
