Profile: The Amazon rainforest native Myrciaria dubia is a tiny, bushy tree. The plant bears white blossoms that develop into a cherry-like fruit known as camu camu. It thrives near riverbanks. These fruits are frequently picked by canoe and highly valued for their nutritional qualities. Camu camu powder is made from dried fruits and can be encapsulated, added to smoothies and drinks, or used in baked goods and ice cream.
The Myrtaceae family includes Camu Camu. This bushy tree grows along Amazon riverbanks and produces a reddish-purple, cherry-like fruit that is becoming increasingly popular due to its high vitamin C content. This superfruit is usually picked by canoe, and a single wild tree can yield up to 25 pounds of fruit per year.
Naturopaths and nutritionists alike are intrigued by the amount of Vitamin C present in the camu Camu berry. This wonder fruit's combination of Vitamin C and other elements is quickly becoming regarded as a general health booster. Smoothies or capsules can easily be made with the powdered form. Vitamin C level diminishes as the fruit ripens and becomes sweeter naturally. As a result of the early harvest, the fruit has a strong acidic flavor that may be readily sweetened to taste.
