Native to the Brazilian-Peruvian Amazon, but its range now spreads throughout the Caribbean, Central and South America. It is rarely if ever grown commercially, but is often found cultivated on a small scale in the American tropics.
It grows naturally in warm, wet regions of the tropics and will not survive freezing temperatures. Its northern limit is South Florida.
Rollinia’s often grow in areas that are flooded for parts of the year so it will tolerate very wet soils. Grow in full sun. Fast growing tree from 10-40ft in height.
