Eugenia stipitata (Araza, Portuguese common names araçá, araçá-boi, Spanish common name arazá) is a guava-like fruit native to Brazil and parts of Peru. It is commonly found in the Rio Ucayali Valley. This small fruit has a yellow or green color, soft pulp, and is sour in taste. Brazil and Peru use araza as an ingredient in drinks, nectars, ice creams, and marmalades.
