Anyone taste this cherry? How does it taste?  Love my Barbados cherry, looking to expand.

Thanks!

This should be in the "tropical" part of the forum, so you may want to re-post there.

Suriname cherry gets a bad rap because many places grow them from seed as landscaping hedges.  So, the ones planted in most people's yards taste like gasoline.  There are a few select varieties that some people like.  Zill's Black (or Zill's Dark depending on who you ask) is probably the best Suriname though.

Check out Cherry of the Rio Grande as well.
