Title: Help identifying this Eugenia.
Post by: JFranco on November 25, 2021, 07:01:35 AM
Hi!

Can you please help me identify this Eugenia?

I will update soon with images of the interior of the fruit. The first I opened had red juice, aborted seed and was reddish on the inside.

Thank you,

Joćo Franco

I would actually lean towards this being calycina, I have one with the round tip leaf like that. Fruit is identical to my pointy leaf calycina.

There is a longer more cylindrical calycina and also the nelita that are superior in size but I didn't mind my calycina - just they're very small.
