Eugenia Casearioides seeds for sale again, new crop.
« on: August 30, 2018, 11:40:57 PM »
5 seeds for $10 plus $2 shipping. Only available for sale to USA addresses. Fruit is similar in growth to Australian Beach Cherry or Cedar Bay Cherry. Withstands probably down to high 20's. Taste is similar to Beach Cherry also, it is mild and fruits after about 3 years.

Thanks

Info is definitely hard to find on line.  I found the following, which isn't very helpful, on line (I have put a link to the doc in the library section):
Eugenia casearioides (HBK.) DC. Prodr. 3: 275. 1828. Myrtus
casearioides HBK. Nov. Gen. & Sp. 6: 145 [folio ed. 115]. 1823. Type
locality, "in monte Cocollar Cumanensium," i.e. on the Orinoco.
Distinctive chiefly in having the branchlets rather long-pubescent
with spreading hairs up to 0.5-0.7 mm. long. The pedicels are
short and the flowers glomerate, i.e. the axis of the raceme is very
short. The species is known chiefly from northern Venezuela, and
from one locality in Colombia (Norte de Santander).

The taste is mild similar to Australian beach cherry. No sour taste at all.

It is also similar to the other name Cedar Bay Cherry, this one comes from Colombia and Venezuela.
