Surinam Cherry

Surinam cherry (Eugenia uniflora) is also called pitanga, Brazilian cherry or cayenne cherry. Indonesian people call it Dewandaru fruit. I captured the plant that grows in front of a neighbor’s house.

According to prlog.org; the flesh of the surinam cherry is an orange to red color, very juicy, with two to three small seeds. Surinam cherry tastes sour with resinous overtones, because the plant generates a large deal of bitter resin. It is generally eaten fresh, often with sugar or processed into preserves. Most of the fruit contain ascorbic acid, enzymes, bioflavonoids, rich in minerals like chromium, potassium, and magnesium etc as well as B vitamins to amino acids.
I should try this fruit!
