Produce Quiz

I am an evergreen, a native of Brazil. I proudly rise up to 40 feet high. I grow in warm, subtropical, and cool tropical regions. I am harvested 5 to 6 times a year, as I have to be separated from the 1 to 4 inch spear shaped leaves protecting me. I am round and only one inch in diameter. My thick black, maroon or purple skin gives way to my white or pinkish translucent pulp. I grow out of the larger branches and directly from the trunk of the tree. Highly cultivated in Rio de Janeiro, I have also been seen occasionally in the United States and have even traveled as far as Australia. Often enjoyed fresh, we can also be used in fruit salads or as a garnish. I create succulent jams, jellies, juices and wines. My high sugar content makes a satisfying snack while providing ample amounts of vitamin C.
