Achacha, Bolivian Mangosteen, Garcinia humilis, Achachairú
 
Habitat and Distribution: Garcinia humilis, known commonly as “Achacha”, is a prolific, small, pyramid shaped, evergreen fruit tree related to the mangosteen.  Often referred to as the Bolivian mangosteen it grows in the southern part of the Amazon basin in the central area of Bolivia.
 
Description: The Achacha is a small to medium sized attractive evergreen tree. Maximum height in cultivation is approximately 20’.
 
Fruit: The fruit has a sweet slightly tart flavor with hints of mango and berries. It takes on a reddish-orange shade when mature and should be picked mature as it does not ripen further with storage. The fruit will keep for 4 to 6 weeks at room temperature once harvested. The bright white flesh is easily removed from a thick rind and can be instantly enjoyed. The glossy orange rinds can be used as a sour spice or pureed, strained and sweetened for a refreshing and nutritious high beta carotene drink. Achacha trees bloom in December. The fruit matures in January and February.
 
Cultivation: Achacha prefers some shade when young gradually increasing to full sun with age. It thrives with moderate amounts of water and a slightly acidic, well draining soil. Hardy to zone 10.
 
Comments: Achacha fruit has gained international attention and won awards in the past decade since being cultivated in other tropical environments throughout Brazil and Australia. It is now sold commercially in parts of Europe.
