Abiu

Native to South America, but also grown in Australia and Florida, abiu is a round fruit, about the size of an orange, with shiny, thick yellow skin. The flesh tastes of sweet caramel when fully ripe, and is high in vitamin C. The fruit can be peeled and eaten in segments; chilled and eaten with a spoon; cut into cubes and added to fruit salad; or puréed for drinks and sorbets. Ripen by storing at room temperature.
