Bunchosia armeniaca
Bunchosia armeniaca (Peanut Butter Fruit)

A small tree hailing from the northwestern regions of South America, and now cultivated in various tropical regions worldwide ranging from 100 to 2600 meters.  Its branches yield a sweet, red-pulped fruit that not only garners attention due to its unique taste resembling peanut butter but also for its ornamental appeal. The fruit, while being a sweet treat, carries a caveat, the seeds within are poisonous. Moreover, the plant's traditional medicinal use aligns with treating a range of infectious and inflammatory diseases, indicative of its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Photographed in the department of Quindio, Colombia.
