Sapucaia. Ylang-ylang. Belimbing. Clove lilly pilly.

I'm not talking in tongues, those are all the names of actual fruits found around the world. These delicious, exotic fruits and the people who study, grow and often obsess over them are the subject of the new documentary, "Fruit Hunters."

The film is based on the book by Adam Leith Gollner.
