Malphigia Emarginata, "Bajan Cherry"

This little fruit has a wealth of value and is very popular in Barbados. Its juice is sold from every corner of the Island and can be bought in the form of a delicious drink which is most thirst quenching during hot sunny days.

It is said that, "one glass of Bajan Cherry Juice contains as much vitamin C as seven glasses of Orange juice". (c) Margaret P. M. Bourne, 1996
