Native tree Eugenia Florida
« on: December 04, 2015, 12:36:25 AM »
Hello friends

I'm posting photos of a native tree of my farm.

is the Eugenia Florida, I've seen the tree in the last week and found many fruits, however immature.

this tree was born in spontaneous way, must have been about nine years old.

When fruits be ready.

 I update the post.

This species will increase in popularity I think, which makes me wonder about its common name.

The full Brazilian name is 'guamirim cereja' although most people on this forum seem to shorten it to just 'guamirim' - which is actually a name used for multiple different fruits.

Typing in E. florida is already tripping up search functions seeing as most results are for the state of Florida.

Is it just me or does the fruit resemble E. candolleana (Rainforest Plum)? Maybe this could be its close cousin Rainforest Cherry.  ;)
Eugenia luschnathiana = CURUIRI.    Talisia esculenta = PITOMBA
I do not recommend people deal with Fruit Lovers, Prisca Mariya or Fernando Malpartida
