Cerrado bacupari or forest “caatinga” bacupari (Salacia crassifolia) is similar to the Asian lychee. It is uncommon and belongs to the Celastraceae botanical family. The tree can grow to a height of 1.50 to 3 m, with rough, grey bark. It usually grows in the tropical savannah in Cerrado and sometimes in forest areas, in specific areas in the Mata Atlântica, and in a few areas of western Bahia. The plant produces small yellow flowers that open between July and September. The fruit has a gelatinous-looking flesh covering small seeds which grow to 3 cm in length.The fruit is usually eaten fresh for its sweet, flavourful flesh. When ripe, the fruit is orange with wrinkles that make it look rustic and even potentially ornamental. Its properties are anti-microbic, anti-fungal and anti-tumour.
