The grumichama (Eugenia brasiliensis) is medium sized tree that can be pruned and keep small (maximum 20 meters height). It is endemic to Brazil which bears small fruits that are purple to black in colour, and have a sweet cherry-like flavor. Its wood is used in carpentry, woodworking and turnery. Its small size favors its use in urban landscaping. Its slow growth and low rate of dispersal make it rare, and it’s generally considered as an endangered species.
