Eugenia klotzschiana (Pera do Cerrado, Cabacinha do Campo) is a deciduous shrub with a long lanky growth habit of well spaced branches that grows up to 1.5 meters high. The long pliable branches are capable of holding a significant amount of fruit and bend well with the additional weight. The plant is native to the Brazilian Cerrado (savannah) region and found in the Brazilian states of the Federal District, Goiás, Minas Gerais, Mato Grosso and Mato Grosso do Sul. The pear-shapped fruit has a thin pubescent skin with thick, juicy, aromatic pulp that has a unique acidic flavor and a little astringency.
