Scientists have introduced a pumpkin-like cherry with a mango taste

If you love cherries, this fast-growing, vine-like cherry variety is for you... maybe. Because although the fruit of the Brazilian cherry is indeed a cherry, it looks like a pumpkin, but it tastes like a mango.

The fruit has an incredibly high vitamin C content, and the plant has a highly decorative bush with spreading branches and aromatic leaves. The Brazilian cherry has delicate white flowers, which are followed by ribbed fruits that ripen on the tree at different rates within a three-week period. When fully ripe, they change color from green to orange and dark red.

Eat only the fruits that will tear off at the slightest touch. If you have to pull or twist the fruit, it means that the cherry is not yet ripe.

The plant grows quickly, and rows of bushes should be spaced 18 feet apart. Brazilian cherry trees do not require special care. They need watering every week and do not allow waterlogging. The tree is also quite drought-resistant.
