Quararibea cordata


Alternatly named Matisia cordata, and called Pau by the Achuar, these are large trees that have a central thick trunk with larger branches going off from that. The leaves are large, more than a foot across. The fruit grows from small branches and has a "cap" that attaches the fruit to the tree. The fruit is bright yellow inside with large seeds.


These trees can be found in the Amazon rainforest of SE Ecuador.


While not as popular as other jungle fruit, it is often around as a snack.
