Yes after seeing Jerrys pics of the fruits its certainly not Brasiliensis and indeed Uniflora. Ed, you mentioned you got the tree a few years back and you are showing the fruits, is this fruit from your tree? I have seen these growing very well in Oz where winters are cold. The Vit C content is Very high in all Brazil cherry sp ( Eugenia Aggregata,E brasiliensis and of course E uniflora) Happy eating. Pete
Eugenia uniflora. Definitely more of a shrub than a tree, esp. that far north. Might not make it through colder winters without protection in Jax.

I looked up Rio grande cherry and got photos like you posted. That is what was baffling me as the color was different and the you can see the lobes on the fruit.
I dont have it out but in a 15 gallon pot in a bright greenhouse. its probably 5 years old but I havent really tried to get it going until I got the big greenhouse buildt (last year)
I am curious how much cold can uniflora tolerate ?

Uniflora can take more cold than grumichama, is say 27 with meager damage.
