    Surinam Cherry is a rugged little plant that is very easy to grow. This plant is considered a shrub but we prune our plant to be a small tree. I am amazed how many cherries this little tree produces! Surinam cherry can also be grown in a container, as a houseplant, or as a Bonsai specimen.   Please note that this plant is considered 'invasive' in Florida.
    Our Maui 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.
