Trees are attractive landscape specimens, especially when decked in ripe fruit. Eugenia braziliensis is an ideal choice for sunny and partially shaded seaside communities, tropical and subtropical areas. Although tolerant of hot conditions and fierce sun its fruit are more abundant in partial shade. It can tolerate drought periods, but for best production water deeply during dry spells. Fruits produced by Grumichama are rich in vitamin C and can be eaten fresh or used in making jams and jelly. It is an excellent source of fiber and healthy proteins, making it a great snack choice. A mature plant can produce up to about 500 fruits. Eugenia braziliensis is native to the coastal region of Brazil, yet is perfectly suited for container planting, making it a viable option for even those located in cold regions. As with most tropical trees, it will do best sticking with a combination of full sun and semi-shade. Its moderate water needs also make it an ideal container tree, as frequent watering is not necessary. It should be watered regularly, however, in order to get the best fruit production. They are cold hardy down to upper 20's F, and will take some salt spray.
