Title: Can you help me ID this eugenia? (E. reinwardtiana)
Post by: PltdWorld on November 16, 2014, 01:34:27 PM
Assuming this is a eugenia because of where it was in my collection, but no idea which one.  The handwritten label faded in the sun and I can't find my notes.

Looks kind of like the Eugenia brasilensis seedlings that I have, or maybe an E. reinwardtiana?

Thanks Richard!  I don't believe it's brasilensis - I have three and they are very different when compared side by side to this one.  I will take a pic of them together for comparison.

I think you're right with Reinwardtiana though!  Just looked more closely at the thread on the topic (http://tropicalfruitforum.com/index.php?topic=316.0 (http://tropicalfruitforum.com/index.php?topic=316.0)) and appears to be a match.

Thanks again,
