Customer Tips & Reviews Grumichama - Black
Grumichama - Black
First tried in Townsville dry-tropics with low yield of small fruit. Transplanted some seedlings to Topaz (Atherton Tablelands, mean annual rainfall 3870mm. Fast, luxuriant growth in full sun with up to 2 crops per year of abundant, large, fruit (Mar+Dec)
LESCHENAULT, WA, Australia
I love the flavour of these fruits but the seed to flesh ratio is too high for them to be anything more than a novelty fruit, at this stage. I suspect the species is chill-sensitive as it gets the winter yellows (chlorosis) when the overnight temps are...
POTTSVILLE, NSW, Australia
As good as a cherry tree , smaller and more tropic resistant . ! did not like the 40l pot much , produced fruit as soon as it went in the ground. This will do me till I get my dwarf low chill cherry trees happening .
Grumichama - Black
Growing very well on Atherton Tablelands deep red volcanic soil. Tree of 4 metres with good crops of very tasty but short lasting fruit. No irrigation used with rainfall of 1300mm.
TAMWORTH, NSW, Australia
WHO WOULD NOT WANT A PIECE OF BRAZIL; EXOTIC, BEAUTIFUL AND SUPER DELICIOUS. I WOULD NOT MISS IT FOR A THING. NOT IN MY WATCH.
RUNCORN, QLD, Australia
Sort of a bit so-so on this one so far. I was told it was a fast grower, but in the two years I've had it, it has maybe doubled in size from the 30cm plant that came from Daleys. It's healthy enough, I guess? Occasionally a few of the leaves will be bl...
BELLBIRD PARK, QLD, Australia
Trying to grow fruits that have less susceptability to pests
Very pretty shrub/trees with glossy green leaves. Have just flowered for the first time, although only a few have set into fruit. Looking forward to trying them when they're ripe.
COBURG, VIC, Australia
Did quite poorly to begin with (dry/brown tips of leaves and not growing), probably because it wasn't sheltered. Once I gave it some protection from the wind it improved.
WATERFALL, NSW, Australia
I have two of these planted close together in what should form a hedge one day. They have been growing very slowly, I think its going to be a long wait for fruit.
EARLVILLE, QLD, Australia
I only just got this plant and can't wait untill it shows it's first flower, Seems to be an easy plant to keep happy aslong as you remember to try to only watter with rain water otherwise it may show signs of tip burn from the ph beeing a bit high, I'v...
The grumichama was my first purchase from Daleys about 5 years ago. It is growing just north of Brisbane, hot and humid and about 2/3 the rainfall of Brisbane. It is not all that fussed over really. When it is dry it has to put up with being a bit t...
This came from Daleys and has been transplanted a couple of times since, even so, it is going strong. I have never tried the fruit but apparently it fruits in abundance and is a tropical variation of a cherry.
Very healthy but never had more than two cherries per year.
Sounds like a delightful fruit. Bought from online site, three out of four died from postal injuries (not Daleys, they have excellent postage services). Seems a fragile plant, avoid crushing. Has survived the Winter well, though no new growth as yet.
Pest free lovely fruit. Enough said.
Melville, WA, Australia
No flowers as yet. Has taken a while to grow but I have patience.
Inala, QLD, Australia
Tastes like cherries, how fortunate to find a subtropical equivalent.
CALAMVALE, QLD, Australia
Sounds good, have never tasted one but i like the description. Still waiting for flowers/fruit! Has not been a very vigorous or healthy tree. Some of the leaves almost look variegated, could this be a deficiency in something?have now replaced the tree ...
Miranda, NSW, Australia
Arrived in August 2011, bit cold in Sydney intitially, but I have it in a black pot & it has just got a burst of new growth & looks good so far. Hasn't grown much over summer(2011 - 2012)
I love cherries and was trying to find a tropical substitute. I have five trees at various stages of development - from 1.5m to 20cm in height. New growth is red in colour
CARLINGFORD, NSW, Australia
Nice tasting fruit provided the tree is well watered, otherwise it does not fill out and retains a turpentine taste. Fruits well after 10 years.

Slow growing, tough yet very attracive shrub or small tree. Little difficult to get established. First flowers appearing as of Nov 2009.

Been in pot too long, about to put in ground - will hopefully make a revival. Revival achieved. Lots of new leaves and growth (well for a grumichama anyway).Covered in new growth as of August 2010. Can't wait to see what it will do over spring and ...
