Acerola (lat. malphighia glabra) is a cherry – also called “Cherry of the Antilles” – originated in Central America. Today it is mainly cultivated in Brazil. The bush achieves a height of 2-3 meters and needs an average temperature of min. 26 °C for optimal growth. Then it may supply up to 30 kg cherries per year. The taste of that orange-yellowish to dark-reddish cherry-like fruit is slightly sour and reminds of lemon. Acerola is suitable even for people who are allergic to citrus fruits.
Our human body is not able to produce vitamin C itself, so it needs to be supplied with it from outside. The German Nutrition Society recommends a daily ration of 80 mg. Sometimes our demand on vitamin C may increase significantly, for example in the winter time, during pregnancy, smoking or mental and physical strain.
