LUSCIOUS ABIU – The Abiu, an exotic fruit from Brazil, has long been introduced in the Philippines but it is still not familiar to many people. The yellow ripe fruit has a soft white flesh that is very nice to eat. It is sweet, tasting somewhat like the common caimito. The fruit tree has been growing and fruiting well at the Teresa Orchard & Nursery in Teresa, Rizal. The beauty about this fruit tree is that it starts bearing fruit even when it is still just four years old and can be kept low by pruning to a height of two meters. It could be grown in containers and will still bear full-sized fruits. Planting materials are now available in Teresa in big numbers.
