Grumichama (Eugenia brasiliensis)

Grumichamas come in either black or yellow (orange). They are the equivalent of temperate cherry and are just as delicious. You will find them in full flower across Queensland during spring. Interestingly, only the branched that receive at least 80-100% sun will flower and fruit, so a sunny position is essential. The flowers are small and creamy white in colour, with a very delicate, faint perfume. Like jaboticabas these plants flower and bear fruit in quick succession, taking only a few weeks to develop if the conditions are right (plenty of sun and rain).
