Originally a mutant from Bahia, Brazil, arriving in North America via a missionary who was so impressed with the rich flavour and its seedlessness, that she sent twelve nursery-sized trees to the USDA, who propagated them and offered them to anyone who cared to give the species a try. In 1873, Eliza Tibbets of Riverside, California, asked for a few and soon launched the industry in the Western US. The fruit is large and the rind easily removed. It is not very juicy, but the flavour is excellent. Today, the fruit is commercially grown, not only in Brazil and California, but also in Paraguay, Spain, South Africa, Australia, and Japan.
