Started eating some of these Garnets today... so GOOD!
Pineapple and Nectarine flavor.
Reminds me of those Tropical Fruit flavored Life Savers they had when I was a kid.

sounds good, although wondering how variable the seedlings will be.

Any chance of a scion or two?!

Several years ago I was growing up a dozen or so run-of-the-mill CORG seedlings when I noticed one that visually stood out.
Most Eugenias have reddish new growth tips... but this one was really spectacular.











After a couple of year it bloomed and set fruit... developing the best tasting CORG I had ever tasted.
I started grafting pieces of it onto standard CORG rootstock with some success.
I showed it to Adam at Flying Fox Fruit and he said he believed it was Eugenia Calycina.
He said most of the specimens he had tried tasted a bit like Spinach.
Well this definitly does not taste like Spinach.
It has a juicy delicious sweet taste that reminds me of Apricots and Pineapple.















For a couple of years I was just referring to it as the "Mystery" CORG.
Finally I decided to give it a name... and I chose "Garnet".... based on the beautiful red foliage and buds.
I have many large grafted Garnet plants now with the original Mother standing around 12 ft in height.
And for anyone interested... I have around 30 grafted Garnets-on-Nelita cocktail plants in 4 inch nursery containers that will be ready to sell soon. These sold out last year, so stay tuned...
That is the story... so far.
