Araza is a shrub or small tree growing to 7-15 ft with drooping branches and fine foliage. It is very rare in cultivation and definitely a collectable plant. Fruit are soft, fragile and don't ship well, so the only way to enjoy them is to grow your own plant. It blooms in Summer with showy white flowers, followed by large (2-5 inches wide) bright yellow fragrant fruit having an excellent sour-acid flavor. Fruit are very juicy, with a strong fruity aroma, usually ripening by Fall. Sometimes eaten fresh, out of hand, although the fruits are quite acidic, it is more commonly used to flavor ice creams, sweets, and beverages. It is very high in vitamin C, double the amount of the average orange.

This species seem to be more cold sensitive than other Eugenias and won't tolerate freeze. It is the best variety for potting culture due to its miniature size. Moderate water is preferable to avoid root problems and leaf chlorosis which are the common problems for this plant.

Eugenia uniflora, Eugenia michelii, Surinam Cherry, Pitanga, Brazilian Cherry

Click to see full-size image Eugenia uniflora, Eugenia michelii
Family: Myrtaceae
Surinam Cherry, Pitanga, Brazilian Cherry
Origin: South America
Can be used for bonsaiLarge shrub 5-10 ftSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterWhite/off-white flowersFragrantEdibleSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

The Surinam cherry is the easiest to grow of all edible Eugenias and an excellent fresh fruit. The native range of this small tree or bush extends from Surinam through Uruguay. It is very popular in Southern landscaping for its red-colored new foliage against the dark green of older leaves along with its red to black, ribbed fruits. The plant blooms profusely at the end of the spring, and then, occasionally the rest of the year. Fruit develop and ripen in just 3 weeks from flowering. They are deeply 8-ribbed and usually about 1 inch in diameter, although plants bearing fruits nearly 2 inches in diameter have been reported. The juicy sweet-acid pulp encloses a fairly large seed.

The fruit can be excellent or only fair, depending on the variety. The deep red, almost black fruited varieties produce sweeter fruit without that tart aftertaste that is specific for Surinam Cherry. The fruit can be eaten fresh, used to make pies, jellies and jams. The pulp is a good source of calcium, and a fair source of phosphorus and iron. In Brazil, the juice is fermented into wine or vinegar.

Propagation is almost always by seed, however superior varieties can be grafted. Red type and black type forms usually come true to seed. Surinam Cherry is an excellent choice for a hedge with regular trimming, or as a pretty specimen tree; the plant will be happy growing in a pot as well. Cold hardy (to lower 20's for mature plants) and undemanding, it grows well under minimum care providing irrigation which is especially important for young plants; established plants are drought tolerant. If left untrimmed, the bush growing in the ground eventually may reach 15' tall and 15' wide. In small yards, the tree can be cut back hard if it becomes too large it will form a the bushy shape in no time. This tropical plant can successfully be grown in a pot indoors in the cooler zones. Indoors, misting of the plants is helpful in winter.

Eugenia uniflora - Black Surinam Cherry Black Star, grafted, 3 gal

What is grafted plant

Q: What is a grafted plant?

Grafting is a method of vegetative (or asexual) propagation where a piece of one plant (scion) selected for its flowers or fruit and containing the desired genes to be duplicated is inserted into a piece of another plant (rootstock), with a strong vigorous root system, usually a seedling.

Benefits of the graft:

  • making a clone of the parent plant ensures the same cultivar, since most fruit trees will not come true to seed
  • taking a scion from a mature plant reduces time to flowering and fruiting (from 10-12 years for a seedling to 2-3 years or less for a grafted plant)
  • introducing dwarfing, hardiness, disease and pest resistance.
  • easier propagation method when other means like cutting or seed is not successful

Eugenia victoriana, Sundrop, Guayabilla

Click to see full-size image Eugenia victoriana
Family: Myrtaceae
Sundrop, Guayabilla
Origin: South America
Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunRegular waterWhite/off-white flowersEdibleUltra tropical, min. temperature 55F

This shrub or a small tree is rare in cultivation. It grows under 10 feet and has drooping branches and fine elliptical leaves with sunken veins. White flowers are borne in clusters of two or three. Fruits ripen throughout the summer, from May through October. They are large, 3 to 4 inches in diameter, with a thin, shiny orange skin and 2 to 4 seeds per fruit.

Sundrop is very sour, and is best used to make a delicious juice. The fruit can be deseeded and frozen, then blended with water and sugar for juice which is very aromatic, bright orange, and reminiscent of passion fruit juice. The fruit are also used to flavor liquor in Colombia. They are a good source of vitamin C containing double the amount of the average orange.

No pruning is required to grow this fruit tree. It grows well in acid soil and prefers moisture and high organic content. Flowering and fruiting occurs in 3 to 4 years from seed. The plant is fairly compact and should make a nice container specimen, will fruit in a large pot. It is sensitive to frost.

Myrciaria cauliflora, Plinia cauliflora, Eugenia cauliflora, Jaboticaba, Duhat

Click to see full-size image Myrciaria cauliflora, Plinia cauliflora, Eugenia cauliflora
Family: Myrtaceae
Jaboticaba, Duhat
Origin: Brazil
Can be used for bonsaiSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunKeep soil moistEdibleSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeFlood tolerant

One of the most popular native fruit of Brazil. This is a slow-growing rather bushy tree up to 15 ft tall, often multi-stemmed with opposite small leaves. The larger trunks and branches have bark which peels off in small patches which is found to be very attractive. The tree is evergreen, but once or twice during the year it will shed large numbers of leaves generally corresponding to heavy rains. Small white flowers are produced along the larger trunks and branches ("cauliflora" means "flowers growing on trunk"). Fruit development is very rapid, usually taking only 20-25 days from flower to full maturity.

The fruit forms on the trunks on short stems, with 2-3 fruits sometimes in a cluster. When trees are in heavy fruit, you cannot see the branches for all the large numbers of dark purplish-black fruits that look like large grapes. They have a white pulp with several small seeds. Skin is thick, and delicious melting pulp somewhat resembles Northern Black Currant in flavor. Jaboticaba fruits are ready to harvest when they have developed a full color and are somewhat soft like a ripe grape. The fruits can be eaten fresh, used in jellies, jams, ice creams, wines or can be frozen whole to enjoy throughout the year. Usually, Jaboticaba will bear fruit only in 6 to 10 years from seed. Once mature, the trees may produce between six to eight crops of fruit per year.

Jaboticaba is fairly wind tolerant but not salt tolerant, but it is relatively cold hardy, taking down to 23 F for short periods without serious damage. Young plants may be injured at around upper 20's F. As the root system is shallow and dries out quickly, the tree requires regular irrigation. It thrives better when planted in heavily mulched organic soils. In their native area, Jaboticabas are frequently flooded by rising rivers for weeks at a time without serious damage, so they are considered water-tolerant. The plant will do best in acid soil with a pH of 5.5 to 6.5, somewhat like gardenias. In highly alkaline soil the plant often develops micronutrient deficiency.

Because of its slow growth, Jaboticaba is perfect for growing in containers. Mature trees in 3-5 gal pots can be many years old. Due to small leaves and dwarfish growth habit, Jaboticaba is often used as bonsai. The tree is small enough to fit into many parts of the garden landscape. Some old bonsai specimens can fruit.

Jaboticaba. One of the most popular native fruit of Brazil. Grape-like purple fruit with a thick skin and delicious melting pulp somewhat resembling Northern Black Currant in flavor.

Myrciaria floribunda, Eugenia floribunda, Guavaberry, Rumberry

Click to see full-size image Myrciaria floribunda, Eugenia floribunda
Family: Myrtaceae
Guavaberry, Rumberry
Origin: Tropical America
Small tree 10-20 ftSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterWhite/off-white flowersOrnamental foliageFragrant

Guavaberry should not be confused with Guava. These trees can be found growing wild in Central America, South America, and Caribbean. It was introduced to Florida, Hawaii, Bermuda, and the Philippines. Plants have red-brown branches and small pink and white flowers. The fruit, which are roughly half the size of cherries, are yellow-orange or dark-red and contain a small amount of translucent flesh surrounding a stone. It has excellent tangy acidic flavor and usually eaten fresh. Also used in beverages, as well as fermented and used in alcoholic drinks, and to make jams. Guavaberry liqueur, which is made from rum, is a common Christmas drink in Sint Maarten and the Virgin Islands. The plant is also used for medicinal purposes.

It grows well in dry and moist climates. Can be kept small with pruning. Hardy to short frost, to the upper 20's F.

Click to see full-size image Myrciaria glomerata, Plinia glomerata, Myrciaria glazioviana, Eugenia cabelluda, Eugenia tomentosa, Paramyrciaria glomerata
Family: Myrtaceae
Cabelluda, Yellow Jaboticaba, Cabeludinha
Origin: Brazil
Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterWhite/off-white flowersFragrantEdibleSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Note: the following latin synonyms for Cabelluda - Eugenia cabelluda, Eugenia tomentosa, Myrciaria glomerata, Paramyrciaria glomerata - may be taxonomically incorrect, although in some sources excepted. Refer to pictures for better identification of this plant.

Cabelluda is a large shrub or small tree, 10-20 feet in height, with multiple thin trunks, very handsome and of value as an ornamental plant. The young stems and leaves are pubescent. Small white flowers are perfect and occur in axillary clusters. Fruits are about 1 inch in diameter, round, yellow when fully ripe, pubescent, with one or two seeds. Cabelluda fruits are delicious. They resemble large gooseberries in appearance and are sweet and aromatic, with a flavor similar to apricot. These are eaten fresh, and can also be used for juices and jams. The fruits are very nutritive and rich in vitamins. Fruiting occurs in 2-3 years, when the plant is hardly 3-4 feet tall.

Cabelluda grows best in moist, fertile soils, and fruits well in full sun as well as partial shade. As a tropical tree, it is fairly cold tolerant and can withstand temperatures as low as upper 20's for a short period. Soft young leaves and twigs may get some cold damage, however even if severely damaged, in Spring the plant readily grows back from the roots.

Cabelluda is rare in plant collections, however it is popular in cultivation around Rio de Janeiro, Brazil where its fruit ripen in October-November.
