Myrciaria dubia, commonly known as camu camu, camucamu, cacari, or camocamo, is a small bushy riverside tree from the Amazon rainforest in Peru and Brazil, which grows to a height of 3–5 m (9.8–16.4 ft) and bears a red/purple cherry-like fruit. It is a close relative of the jabuticaba (Myrciaria cauliflora) and the guavaberry or rumberry (Myrciaria floribunda). As much as 2-3% of the fresh fruit by weight is vitamin C.
The most interesting benefits of camu camu include its ability to aid in weight loss, boost the immune system, protect against liver injuries and chronic diseases, and reduce inflammation.
It is rich in vitamin C which helps to detoxify the body and prevent viral infections. Camu camu is also good for reducing mood swings, promoting eye health, improving sexual health, and preventing cognitive disorders.Camu camu fruit plants in Keralais now available in our farms.
