I am posting this image here because it was prohibited in the other site, whose rules are so stupid to be understood.
These are pitangas (Eugenia uniflora) a native fruit from Brazil, in fact from Atlantic forest. Its name means red in tupi-guarani language and it has a big rounded seed.
It isn't a commercial fruit because it is so fragile and spoils in few hours, anyway it is being used to produce special cosmetics. I put the bow with the fruits in the table of my kitchen and I thought it would be a nice idea to show this wild fruit to people abroad. The crochet work was created by my mother,
Bom Dia Jorge,
I like this still life a lot! The red fruit looks like tiny red pumpkins while the off-center placement is effective. Your Mom's crochet work is lovely, My Mom used to crochet lap blankets with roses on them. SAA, Patricia
What a beautiful - and mouthwatering still life! I read about these fruits and I think they aren't cultivated here in Europe. I've never seen them but they really look delicious. Unfortunately photos like this a rather rare. I like it very much.
I also like the beautiful crocheted doily - made by your mother. I have a lot of crochet works from my grandma - and I esteem them a lot.
Greetings from grey, wet and cool Germany! Have a nice weekend!
I've never heard of this fruit, but it sure looks delicious. Is it sweet? It certainly is a very beautiful red color and that contrasts nicely with the crochet cloth that your mother made. It must have been many hours of work.
I have never heard of this fruit either. It has something tomato-like with its shape and color? If it helps in cosmetics, well let's try it out - hehe. Nice presentation with how the bowl is placed on this lovely lace work. I sometimes buy shampoo from a Brazil brand but boy it's expensive ... but it feels like "rainforest" ;-) A very nice still life.
the products made with these fruits are produced in my state, not in "rain forest' , I guess natura company has shampoos and soaps made with the fruits, but I am not sure.
I remember an advertising showing a family of my state who had abandoned the tobacco plantation (a triple evil) and instead was harvesting these fruits to the company.
