Acerola Cherry


Acerola Cherry

Malpighia emarginata

Common names include acerola, Barbados cherry, West Indian cherry and wild crepe myrtle. Acerola is native to South America, southern Mexico, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Brazil, and Central America, but is now also being grown as far north as Texas and in subtropical areas of Asia, such as India.

It is known for being extremely rich in vitamin C, almost as much as camu camu, although it also contains vitamins A, B1, B2, and B3, as well as carotenoids and bioflavonoids, which provide important nutritive value and have antioxidant uses.
