***Abiu is currently available for Pre-Order. When placing a Pre-Order, this means the fruit you have ordered is not currently in season, or is extremely limited in season. Your pre-order holds your place in line on our wait list. When Abiu comes into season and is ready to harvest from the trees, you will receive your order as soon as possible.***
Origin: Abiu, also called Pouteria Caimito is a tropical fruit that originates in the Amazonian region of South America. This fruit is grown in small quantities here in South Florida.
Flavor Profile: Abiu has a creamy and jelly-like texture and its taste is similar to a sweet caramel custard.
How To Eat: When ripe, it has smooth, bright yellow skin and contains one to four seeds. The inside of the fruit is translucent and white. Bite the tip off and suck out the sweet juices or cut in half and scoop out with a spoon.
First come first serve, any orders that can't be shipped this season will be reserved for next season.
The total weight of the box varies depending on the size, shape, and mass of the fruit:
- A One Pound Box contains: one pound
- A Small Box contains: up to 3-5 pounds
- A Large Box contains: up to 8-10 pounds
We ALWAYS recommend ordering a LARGE BOX for the best value, when compared to a Small Box. Because shipping, handling, and delivery are so expensive per package, the Large Box will contain more fruit and ultimately a better value.
