Camu-camu (scientific name: Myrciaria sp.) has plum-sized fruits that are natural vitamin pills—each has ten times the Vitamin C content of a lemon. They probably have a high caffeine content - several fruits will keep you awake all night! The shrubby tree grows on riversides and lake edges, making it easy to harvest, but it is not cultivated.
