Gustavia speciosa.

Botanical name:

Gustavia speciosa DC. Myrtaceae.

New Granada. The small fruits of this tree, according to Humboldt and Bonpland, cause the body of the eater to turn yellow, and, after it remains 24 or 48 hours, nothing can erase the color.


Sturtevant's Edible Plants of the World, 1919, was edited by U. P. Hedrick.
