"Stopper" (Eugenia) species taste
« on: January 26, 2019, 12:48:53 AM »
Which of the Eugenia species native to the continental US (E. axillaris, confusa, foetida, rhombea; any others?) has good-tasting fruit?  What does each of those taste like?  Thanks in advance!

Iím growing a few (redberry, Spanish, white, & Simpsonís), only tasted White (E. axillaris) and Simpsonís (M. fragrans).

Unfortunately, donít recall much other than that Simpsonís stopper was the better of the two, sweeter- and I remember the White being more tart and less palatable.  Itís completely possible I picked em at the wrong times and etc. tho, so will have to pay attention next time I get fruit- looks like I have flowers on a few of the Simpsonís now.

I will have to report back, tho Iím no connoisseur.  I do recall Simpsonís being featured in Tropical Fruits for Florida tho, if thatís any indication as to what to expect.
