Experience the extraordinary quality of the Brazilian Cherry Grumichama (Eugenia brasiliensis) in your garden. This wonderfully fragrant seedling produces a large, bright red fruit with a juicy, sweet flavor. It's perfect for adding a touch of tropical flair to your landscape.

This is one fruit tree that should be seen more often! It is a lovely evergreen ornamental with its shiny dark green leaves and striking white flowers in mid-March. The white flowers have about 100 white stamens with yellowish anthers. The new growth is an attractive rosy-burgundy red. The fruit tastes like a Bing cherry.

The seed is larger than a Bing cherry, which means that you just have to eat more grumichama fruit! Some people object to the little green sepals that remain on the fruit, but I say it is just like a little lettuce and enjoy! These trees can grow to 25 or 35 feet, but can be kept pruned to pickable ten or twelve feet.

The trees will reflower so that you will have fruit several times during the year, although the first crop is the largest. The tree is from sub-tropical areas of Brazil, but is reported to survive temperatures of 26° F and produces more fruit if the winter is a little chilly. The fruit keeps well frozen. Fruit flies and birds may compete for the harvest. This is one fruit you must try if you like cherries!

The plant will be approximately 2 to 3 inches in height with well-developed roots. These plants have been growing in 4 inch containers.  They will be shipped without the containers.  The roots and soil will be dampened and covered in plastic wrap prior to shipping.  They will be ready to plant upon arrival.
