Hi Suzanne, ive seen mature trees growing in northern nsw and they are one of the most beautiful small trees ive seen. Ive got two growing at my place in Wollongong and i find them very easy to grow. Never tried the fruits but have heard they are really good.

Hi Suzanne,

There is a good one of these trees at Mt Coot-tha botanical gardens, in the orchard section (in my edibles under Mt Coot-tha botanical gardens). It has coppiced after being cut back by the look of it. This tree is well suited to south-east Qld. There are several people in the forum highly recommending them for flavour. Mine is healthy, but too young for fruit yet.

Hi Suzanne,

It is a small tree (3-5m) that likes pruning. Mine looks like a shrub, I intend to keep it smaller than head height.

Diana.

PS You have no pictures, plants, name or place name in your my edibles page- it looks like it failed to load anything.

The age of miracles is not over yet.Anyone out there with this plant in there collection I emplore you to be patient. Noticed also that the flowering is more prolific.

How are the Eugenias' defences against Myrtle Rust? I've just had a small outbreak on a Midgen bush, and now am very worried as I have many other potential victims ( eugenias, guavas and culinary myrtle varieties.). :(

South and central American species handle rust better than Myrtaceae from Asia. Old world species are na´ve to this disease.Rose apples and cedar bay cherries seem to really cop it.

Both my Ceylon Hill Gooseberry, Rhodomyrtus tomentosa, got it something bad last year still recovering.
My Cedar bay and Midgen bushes hardly a speck, their all within metres of each other.

Thanks for replies. My Cedar Bay ok at this stage. Ivepeters, have you been using any product in particular to help recovery? I'm also a bit puzzled with the disease - I have 3 Midgens, all within 30-40cm of each other, (and next to Ceylon Hill Gooseberry), but only the middle plant is affected.

Their not as good as they once were, but hopefully with this spring weather some new growth will take over.
Doing the seasol every so often.
At the first sign, which was dramatic, gave everyone a good spray of mancozeb and copper.
There were some specks on the cedar bays but the spray took care of that.
Their all going great.

I know the one and many of the seeds are from fruits not grown in Thailand. Latin America and the US are where all the good ones are and there are giant types in Mexico and Brazil that I have heard of.
I am sceptical about ebay and the seed company must have suppliers in other parts of the world. I don't know how legit they are.By the way they are not legal to import,

Thanks for the help all of you, I will keep looking and let yous know if im succesful! Ivepeters, how would you rate the cedar bay cherry I only discovered them the other day and was wondering how much variation there is among them as far as flavour goes. Another on my to get list I think. These eugenias are an interesting bunch of trees, I have two grumichamas at the moment and they are growing really well in big pots, very attractive plants.

Like a cherry in texture, nice not too sweet but it might have been due to the large amount of rain beforehand .

I bought a cherry of the rio grand from Daleys about a year ago. One of the small branches broke so I stuck it in potting mix to see if it would take. Two months later it still appears to be alive. I haven't checked for roots, but it does appear to have struck successfully. Thought this might be of interest to others on this forum who are keen to grow this plant.

Finally got my hands on some rio grande cherries, have them available at forbidden fruits nursery thanks Ive! Also got a pitomba while I was there just to add another eugenia to my now growing collection. Would not knock back a yellow grumi if you dont need it Ive. Also anybody looking for black sapote, forbidden fruits has absolutely oodles of them for sale, 6ft tall trees for 5 bucks!! All grafted varieties just didnt have the room or otherwise I would have grabbed a couple.

I like the look of cereja but confiused are they the same as rio grande or different as alot of the sites contradict each other. Nice collection anyway!

Carl just plant them 1cm under potting mix and keep them warm with filtered light. They are the easiest jaboticaba to germinate. Now you'll have to chase the other glamorous species with scarlet, red hybrid, tenella, coronata ad a about 10 others on the hit list.

Don I have never joined any clubs like that and don't know if you can get many rarities through them.The E.cereja is not as common as cherry of rio grande and I'd be surprised if there are any sellers of them around. Only about 2 to 3% of Eugenias are available in Australia. I had a few seeds of a number of species sent to me as a one off thing.

If this is about to flower,in a pot & hardly 30cm tall, I swear I will rip out (or get my husband to anyway) my 6 year 180cm tall one and mulch it! It has only ever given me 3 fruit!

Hi Don, yes 3! Hopefully they've set. My big one's gone gone gone. How are those seedlings going? My cedar bay cherry is about to flower again. You've really got to be vigilant with that myrtle rust, I keep pinching off & binning affected leaves it's incredible how vulnerable they are. I'm not sure it's worth the trouble. The seeds you gave me have not yet come up but that is not unusual I'm sure.

Nice one, ill dig that big one out and give you some bucks for it if you havnt chopped it out already. Littlest cedar bay seed died and big one still same size, no change. The seeds of mine havnt sprouted above soil either, dug some up and some seeds just getting nodules on outside for roots so they are very slow.

Could anyone comment on why fruit is falling off.
Both mine flowered like crazy, smaller of the two lost all the flowers over time. The taller one same thing but had a couple of dozen fruit forming, now their gradually falling off after turning red.
