Eugenia uniflora-Suriname cherry
« on: April 13, 2019, 12:27:54 AM »
I gave a seedling to i bought from someone to a friend
But I was wondering are these ever  'male' and female plants
the reason i ask is this is the 2nd year they have flowered but no fruits
I thought they were always hermaphroditic

Mine didnít fruit the first year it flowered... 2nd year I got only a couple of fruits. This year it is loaded with flowers, and Iím expecting a much larger crop.

Same here.. a real exercise in patience, but worth the wait.

Itís recommended to have cross pollination in the case of Surinam cherry.
