Surinam Cherry is a rugged little plant that is very easy to grow. This plant is considered a shrub and can be pruned into a small tree or hedge. Surinam cherry can also be grown in a container, as a houseplant, or a Bonsai specimen.
Surinam cherry (Eugenia uniflora) produces fruit several times a year. The pumpkin shaped cherries are very high in vitamin C and turn a delightful red color when ripe. The taste is very tart and they are juicy, especially if there has been a lot of rainfall. We like to pick the cherries and eat them fresh, they are also excellent used in pies and jellies also.
Please keep these seeds 75-85 degrees at all times. Surinam prefers 'average soil'.
