Abiu (Pouteria caimito)

The abiu is a small evergreen fruit tree native to South America.
The round bright yellow skinned fruits, which are borne directly on the tree branches several times a year,
are considered one of the best fruits of the Amazon Basin.
The white, translucent flesh is sweet with a slight flavor of caramel with honeydew melon and the texture of a well ripened persimmon.
The Gray and Z-2 abius are selections from Australia with good quality fruits that weigh about a pound.
The trees need some wind protection with good draining soil.
