Uvilla (Pouoruma cecropiaefolia) is one of my favorite Amazonian fruits. The fruits look like huge purple grapes and the tree is spindly with sparse branches and large palmate leaves.  The whole concept of this species is something that Dr. Seuss might have come up with.

The best part about uvilla is that the fruits are really sweet and fun to eat. [NOTE: The girls are from a little village on the Ucayali River in the Peruvian Amazon.  They happily shared their uvilla with me].
