The curuba is a typical fruit of the cold zone; it grows well between 2,000 and 3,000 metres above sea level with temperatures of 8°C to 16°C. The flesh is firm, fleshy, and has small black seeds. The colour of the flesh is yellow or orange. The fruit is an oblong berry of yellow orange colour when ripe, very fragrant, and elliptical in shape. It has abundant seeds, dotted and with raised edges. Curuba is produced mainly in Colombia, Venezuela, Bolivia, Peru, and New Zealand. It has become one of the most popular tropical fruits. Its taste is mild, pleasant, fragrant, and slightly acidic. Its pulp has a gelatinous consistency and a peculiar taste, exotic and smooth at the same time, which cannot be compared to that of any other fruit.
