You think it might be from the nuclear waste dump site my house is built on?

I noticed an aberration on one of my Eugenia Calycina 'Nelita' plants - grown from seed I received from Miguel in Portugal a couple of years ago.
Looks like the growth tip has triple the number of stems growing as one:



By comparison... Here's a normal one from the same plant:



Mutation?

What critters are your main culprit?
Birds? Rodentia? Iguanas? Humans?

Got this Jabo a couple of years ago as a bonus plant from Flying Fox Fruits.
Beautiful foliage and grows great in a 15 gallon nursery bag.
First flowers a month ago and now the fruit looks ripe. Is it?
Not sure of the variety.
About 3ft tall and wide.
Ideas please?

Thanks.
I keep a small artists paintbrush in my greenhouse to serve as an artificial bee... or whatever would normally pollinate them.

I have plenty of 1 and 2 year old seedlings.
As far as flavor and texture... There is no resinous aftertaste at all.
Cedar Bay Cherries have a meaty texture with a mildly sweet vanilla taste.

Here's how I described them earlier in this ad:

As you know... shipping costs are what drive-up the price of online plant sales.
I can give you a better price for multiple plants... but an individual plant may cost as much or more to ship than the the plant itself.
I use Priority mail and package plants as carefully as possible so that they arrive as fresh as they were the day I packaged them.
I buy plants all the time... so I see the business on both sides.

My Na Dai “Easy Peel” has been blooming for a few weeks now and I resorted to hand pollination to hopefully set some fruit.
I noticed a couple of likely candidates this morning:







Does this look like fruit set to you?
If you have any anecdotes or info about this variety to share I would appreciate it.
Thanks.

I'm a big Suriname Cherry fan as well.
All my plants were grown from seed.
Some were purchased from Flying Fox Fruits and some I grew myself from seed.
I have a few seedlings for sale if you are interested.
Go over to the "For Sale" posts and you will see the info.

Juicy, Sour and a slight gummy mouth feel after consumption.
Every now and then I get one almost balanced... but not often.
I have selected my best individual as well.
Larger fruit. Hollow seed cavity loosely rattles sort of like a walnut. Better taste/less sour.
Still hard to eat more than one at a time.
Best use would be smoothies or some sort of sweetened concoction
.

Mike,
If you go back earlier in this topic you will see some discussion of Eugenia calycina - Nelita.
I know Miguel in Portugal is the source of these seeds... I bought Nelitas from him for a couple of years and one even started blooming this spring.
I received my Mystery Eugenia from Adam Shafran in a shipment of Cherry of the Rio Grandes seedlings a couple of years ago. This plant stood out from the others with its unique characteristics.
I know Adam also grew some Nelitas... so there could be some sort of cross-over or freaky mutation.
Thanks Adam!

Yes the red growth is very appealing
Also... Since I have so many Cherry of the Rio Grande seedlings right now I though I might try my hand at grafting a few.

I am positive it is from seed.
I am leaning toward your idea of mutant/random genetic variation of Cherry of the Rio Grande.
