A tropical fruit that's so good it's considered a delicacy

Abiu Trees are native to South America but are growing in popularity all over the world due to their ability to thrive in containers indoors, so people can grow their irresistible fruit anywhere.  

The unique Abiu Fruit has vibrant yellow skin on the outside with clear, translucent flesh on the inside. The soft flesh that melts in your mouth contains a sweet juicy flavor similar to crème caramel. Its rich flavor satisfies sweet cravings and provides refreshing relief during hot summer days.  

This tropical fruit is most popular when served chilled, then people cut them in half and eat the flesh with a spoon. However, Abiu fruit is also used for making ice cream, adding to yogurt and smoothies, and are often included with breakfast meals. 

The sweetness of Abiu makes people think they’re eating a dessert instead of an incredibly healthy food that contains B vitamins, vitamin A, vitamin C, potassium, calcium and more to fill your body with essential nutrients. 

By growing your own Abiu indoors, you will have an endless supply of exotic fruit as well as the perfect houseplant. Abiu trees have long, slender green leaves that add vibrant color to liven up the room. 

These trees are exciting to watch as clusters of white blooms emerge on the branches before turning into round green fruit that grow to the size of baseballs and turn bright yellow as they ripen. 

Best of all, Abiu trees never make a fuss. They’re low maintenance, drought tolerant and heat resistant. Simply place your tree by a large sunny window and prepare for tons of sweet tasting tropical fruit.

A Review From A Mostly Satisfied Customer
Very happy with the plant, it arrived wilted with much of the foliage damaged with a split down the center of the trunk along with another plant that's actually in a bit worse shape. I replanted it as quickly as possible and gave it a support stake with a rubber band around it while watering with dyna-gro foliage pro mixed with dyna gro protekt and it pulled through after about a week and the split is seeming to have healed up, hence why I'm rating it as hardy. I'm also growing it in an indoor garden that matches about a zone 9-11 area but plan on actually planting it after moving somewhere warmer. I have yet to see new growth but hopefully that will come soon. I'm excited to have my own fruit-bearing abiu tree one day!
Repotted it in peat moss and perlite and its doing well! Arrived wilted but it pulled through!

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Abiu Tree



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Abiu Tree .

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Abiu Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole


As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Abiu Tree again after the transplant is complete.

I am VERY interested in growing food in my indoor garden, especially tropical ones. In addition I love caramel so I'm really hoping these turn out to be what I hope they are and that they arrive in good health!
