Before telling you about acerola in more detail, I need to introduce you to acerola in general. We offer here a summary of the study. We recommend Pasteur's study on acerola and allergies. 

We sell acerola for food purposes only.

Recommended Dosage

Although scientific studies do not yet provide consensus on a precise dosage, it is commonly accepted that daily consumption of 1 gram of acerola pulp is safe, given its high concentration of vitamin C. However, some Quantities of up to 3 to 6 grams of powder can be consumed without notable drawbacks.    

It is advisable to consult a health specialist to determine the dosage best suited to your profile and nutritional needs.

Risk of Overdose

Debate persists regarding the possibility of overdosing on vitamin C. Theoretically, even at high doses, vitamin C remains non-toxic and safe from overdose.

Administration mode

To benefit from a regular intake of natural vitamin C, it is recommended to dissolve acerola powder in 500 ml of water or in your favorite drink, to consume gradually over the day.  

Acerola powder can also be included in your daily culinary preparations, provided you do not heat it above 40°C to preserve its nutritional properties.  

Incorporate it into your favorite desserts such as compotes, smoothies, fruit salads, banana purees, yogurts or cottage cheeses for a touch of flavor and well-being.

Nutrient Associations

Acerola pairs perfectly with other superfoods for targeted effects:

  • Reinforced immunity  : Honey and acerola
  • Winter prevention  : combine it with elderflower, honey of your choice or eucalyptus leaves.
  • Energy and vitality  : mix it with guarana. Guarana will contain caffeine.

Nutritional Profile of Acerola

Acerola is distinguished by its richness in vitamin C (ascorbic acid) surpassing that of oranges by 20 to 30 times . It ranks third among the fruits richest in vitamin C, with 1,000 to 2,000 mg per 100 g of fresh fruit, just after Terminalia ferdinandiana and Camu-Camu.     

To best preserve vitamin C and other nutrients, the fruits are dehydrated at low temperature, below 40°C . 

Acerola contains vitamins B6, B1 (thiamine, riboflavin, pyridoxine), vitamin A, essential minerals (iron, calcium, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium), as well as other antioxidants such as flavonoids and anthocyanins.

On the competitor's website we can read that acerola is rich in vitamin C: Abundant in vitamin C - helps defend cells against oxidative stress; promotes normal collagen synthesis to ensure the ordinary health of blood vessels, bones, cartilage, teeth, gums and epidermis; supports regular energy metabolism; supports the proper functioning of the nervous system; supports the proper functioning of the immune system; helps to reduce fatigue; stimulates iron absorption. 

Here we recommend you to speak with your doctor and pharmacist about its claims. 


I offer you here a short guide to growing Acerola in Brazil with this variety guide.

In the northeastern region of Brazil , acerola is grown in abundance, notably in the states of Bahia and Pernambuco . More than 800 hectares are dedicated to it, testifying to the popularity of this fruit rich in vitamin C. Unlike the southern and southeastern regions, where cooler winter temperatures limit its presence, the northeast offers ideal conditions for cultivation acerola.     

Sweet Varieties of Acerola for Commercial Cultivation:

  • Manoa Sweet (4-43)  : With its reddish-yellow fruits, this variety is perfect for home gardens.
  • Tropical Ruby (9-68)  : Growing up to five meters, it is similar to Manoa Sweet in terms of fruit.
  • Hawaiian Queen (8E-32)  : Requires single trunk pruning, ideal for immediate consumption.

Acid Varieties of Acerola and Their Characteristics

  • JH Beaumont (3B-21)  : A compact clone that produces orange-reddish fruits and offers good productivity.
  • CF Rehnborg (22-40)  : Known for its high productivity and large, dark red fruits, but with less vitamin C.
  • F. Haley (3A-8)  : Adapted to arid regions, it offers medium-sized red-purple fruits.
  • Red Jumbo (3B-1)  : A small but prolific shrub, with large, attractive cherry red to purple fruits.
  • Maunawili (8)  : Excellent in humid areas, it produces vibrant cherry red fruits.


Acerolas are classified into sweet and sour varieties. The acidic varieties are richer in vitamin C. The varieties with sweet fruits are recommended for the consumption of normal fruit, while the varieties with acidic fruits are recommended for industrialization and in particular for the powdered acerola that we sell in Europe. 


Chromatic transformation of acerola during its maturation: a biochemical and hormonal symphony

The color metamorphosis that acerola (Malpighia emarginata) undergoes during its maturation is a fascinating spectacle orchestrated by biochemical and hormonal processes. Let's decipher together the mysteries of this astonishing transformation.

Chlorophyll: The conductor of the green color  Chlorophyll, the pigment of the green color of plants, sees its role weaken during maturation. Under the influence of ethylene, this gas gradually breaks down the chlorophyll molecules in the skin of the fruit. Like the notes of a score fading, the chlorophyll dissipates, giving way to a palette of red and yellow.

Ethylene: The Hormone That Directs Maturity  Ethylene, this prodigious plant hormone, is the conductor of maturation. Produced by the fruits themselves, it initiates a cascade of reactions by binding to the plant's receptors. This molecular ballet leads to physicochemical modifications, notably color change, thus signaling the peak of maturity.

But be careful, you have different varieties of acerola with colors that will change. The F.Haley acerola will have a candy pink powder, the Beaumont acerola will have a rather brown color. Now you understand the color variation in our powdered acerola. 


Optimization of acerola cultivation, you will understand why Brazil is the leader in acerola production. 

The success of acerola cultivation relies on a well-thought-out fertilization and nutrition strategy, particularly for export orchards.

I have personally been to the most beautiful orchards in Brazil in different acerola powder production factories to be able to select this natural vitamin C.

Fertilization represents a crucial lever for boosting productivity. In order to optimize the use of fertilizers, the grower must rely on fundamental methods: soil analysis, examination of leaves, detection of signs of nutritional deficiencies and understanding of the elements influencing the availability of nutrients. .

  • Ideal environment for acerola

Acerola thrives in tropical and subtropical areas, showing resilience to temperatures near freezing. Optimal yield is observed with annual precipitation of 1200 to 1600 mm, uniformly distributed. The plant is not demanding in terms of soil type, adapting equally well to sandy and clayey soils.

  • Careful harvest

Harvesting acerolas, whether for direct consumption or processing into juice for export, must be carried out with care. Harvesters must be trained specifically for this task. Fruits intended for long journeys should be picked when fully ripe. It is essential to handle fruits with care to avoid any damage that accelerates their deterioration. When packaging, the number of layers must be limited to prevent crushing of the fruit underneath.

  • Polyculture in acerola orchards

Mixed farming is possible in acerola orchards, with certain precautions, particularly regarding the irrigation system. This practice is more widespread with sprinkler irrigation or during the rainy season. Compatible crops include beans, corn, tomatoes, watermelon and melon.

  • Disease management

Sigatoka, identifiable by small necrotic spots on the leaves, can be controlled with copper-based treatments. Two other diseases, verrugosis and anthracnose, threaten acerola orchards, especially in the presence of papaya and pomegranate trees. To minimize risks, it is best to avoid mixed farming.

  • Adapted irrigation systems

Acerola accommodates various irrigation systems, such as conventional sprinkler, center pivot, furrow and drip. Furrow and drip systems are recommended for mixed soils, while sprinkler and pivot are more suitable for sandy soils.

  • Planting and care

Planting is carried out when the plants measure between 30 and 40 cm. They are then attached to stakes with wide ribbons to guide their growth without strangling them. In the absence of rain, frequent watering is recommended.

  • Size and formation

Training pruning is necessary after resuming to develop a single trunk and direct three to four main branches which will constitute the crown structure.

  • Pest Control

Aphids, weevils and nematodes represent threats to acerola. Specific treatments, such as mineral oil, parathion and the use of legumes, are effective in controlling them.

  • Land preparation and propagation

The land must be prepared by plowing and harrowing. Propagation can be done by seeds, cuttings or grafting, with a preference for seeds.
