Biriba is part of the Rollinia genus. Its scientific name is Rollinia deliciosa.

A small-to-midsized fruit tree, native to the Amazon basin, from the annonaceae family. Though categorized in the Rollinia genus, it may hybridize with at least one Annona (soursop). It is variably related to cherimoya, sugar apple, custard apple, ilama, soncoya, soursop, various types of pawpaw, and like those fruits, Rollinia deliciosa (biriba) produces a sweet fleshy fruit, with a number of inedible seeds within. The fruit ripens to yellow, and is very easily bruised when handled.

Biriba grows as a perennial and is an edible fruit. Being a perennial plant, it tends to grow best over several years (approx 3 years and greater).

Brazil is believed to be where Biriba originates from.
