Grumichama, Brazil cherry
(Eugenia brasiliensis, formerly E. dombeyana — Family Myrtaceae)
Grumichama is related to a long list of Eugenia fruits that include Pitanga, Rose Apple, Jambu, Jaboticaba, and Pitomba.
It is a fruit of Brazil and Peru, but also grows in Hawaii.
The tree bears a crimson fruit with soft flesh and a mild flavour. The fruit exists in several varieties that are distinguished by the colour of their flesh.
All are of equal merit whether they are dark red, vermillion, or white. The fruit is cherry-sized, with a thin skin, soft flesh, and a mild flavour which has been compared to the bigarreau cherry, making it suitable for eating fresh or for preserves.
