Camu camu is a small, bushy tree that grows in the Amazon rainforest. The trees can grow up to five meters in height and are commonly seen in Peru and Brazil.

Camu camu’s notoriety comes from its vitamin C content. Camu camu is full to the brim with vitamin C. A serving may contain up to 60 times the vitamin C found in an orange.
