Brazilian fruits: perinha of cerrado

Brazil is a very rich country in flora and fauna, but even Brazilian people don’t know it very well. Thinking about that, we decided to write a few texts about Brazilian native fruits, and we are almost certain that you don’t even knew that they existed!

The perinha of cerrado is also know as pera of the fild, cabacinha or cambixá-açú that in tupi guarani means “fruit that ties the tongue”. The fruit got this name because it has a really acid flavor.

Aside it’s sour taste, this fruit is used to make juices with milk, ice-creams, jellies and even cakes! The pera of campo grows in a bush native of the fields and now a days this plant is very hard to find.
