Eugenias
« on: November 20, 2020, 12:19:37 AM »
I am really interested in eugenias.  They are a good size for my back yard and I love how they look.
They are not the easiest to locate, so, I would like to I would to narrow varieties I want to purchase.
Currently I have corg nelita, savannah cherry, pitomba, grumichama, e. Ligustrina, rainforest plum, a couple pitanga's,  and cedar bay cherry.
Any recommendations on other varieties to add?
I am pretty, only interested in eating fruit out of hand.  Not interested in making a juice or anything like that.
Thanks for advice!

Araza is good but pretty sour.

Not mine. I have 4 different species and all are very good, sweet and big. Even araša una is very good!   :P

When it comes to Eugenias believe only half of what you see and very little of what you read. If you have large black unifloras covered hen pyriformis x luescens and pitomba as well as itaguensis should be on he hit list and oh yeah lutescens also.
