Eugenia aggregata, Cherry of the Rio Grande, Cere Jodo Rio Grande

Eugenia aggregata

Cherry of the Rio Grande, Cere Jodo Rio Grande
Family: Myrtaceae
Origin: Brazil
Small tree 10-20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterEdibleSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

This small multi-branching tree or shrub grows about 10-20 ft tall. Leaves are 2-3" long, glossy, waxy, dark green, and somewhat folded down the center. As the tree gets older the bark peels off, resulting in a smooth and very attractive trunk. In the spring the Cherry of the Rio Grande is one of our early flowering tropical fruits and often blossoms in the first part of March. The flowers are white and quite showy. Blooming and fruiting season continues for several months into Summer. The delicious cherry is one inch oblong fruit, beautiful dark red to purple, and is produced soon after flowering. When ripe the the fruit can turn almost black and have a full cherry-like flavor. The fruit are highly prized fresh and as jellies, jams or juices. They freeze quite well, so they can be picked at maturity and frozen for later use.

A slow grower, Cherry of the Rio Grande grows 2 to 3 feet per year and makes a very attractive large shrub or small tree, depending on how it's trained. It is ideal for limited space landscapes since it can be kept as a bush or even as a container specimen and still produce adequate quantities of fruit. Propagated by seed, although seedlings may take up to 4-5 years to fruit.

The plant is fairly drought tolerant, but needs regular watering when flowering and fruiting, but avoid over-irrigation as it may create problems with the root system. The plant is tolerant of a variety of soils, it grows best in partly acidic soil; it does not like large amounts of salt spray. A relatively hardy plant, it can tolerate as low as low 20's F when mature, though younger plants should be protected from frosts.

Eugenia braziliensis, Eugenia dombeyi, Grumichama

Eugenia braziliensis, Eugenia dombeyi

Grumichama
Family: Myrtaceae
Origin: Brazil
Small tree 10-20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeModerate waterEdibleSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeSeaside, salt tolerant plant

This compact tree grows to about 20 feet. It has beautiful glossy green leaves up to 3-4 inches long and one to two inches wide, with leathery texture, and the new growth is a wine reddish color before it matures. During the early spring, one white one-inch flowers are produced in large masses. Fruits follow quickly in about four weeks after flowering. They are about one inch or larger, purplish black in color with large seeds and excellent melting flesh that has almost the flavor of a northern cherry. Eaten fresh and used in jelly.

Trees grow well in most soil types, but prefer acid conditions for best growth. They are cold hardy down to upper 20's F, and will take some salt spray.

Trees are easily propagated by seed; seedlings take about two and a half years to start flowering. Growth rates are usually about two feet a year once the plants are well established. The Grumichama makes an excellent container plant and will fruit quite nicely in a five to ten gallon-size container.
