The Acerola Cherry is considered to have one of the very highest concentrations of vitamin C that can be found in any natural food, up to 65 times that of an Orange!

These Berries aren’t actually very easy to harvest here in Tamilnadu, as the birds simply love going for them! And if the birds don’t get them, then children will! In any case, they are available, and clearly enjoyable too!Acerola Cherry / Barbados Cherry

They make a very fine tasting juice, and salads can provide a whole new element of flavor.Our local ice cream parlor here in auroville, even makes ice cream out of the fresh fruits!

Right now, after the monsoon, the shrubs have begun flowering. Given sufficient moisture, they will produce plentiful fruits at the beginning of summer.Acerola Cherry / Barbados Cherry
