PITANGA ‘Eugenia Uniflora’


POT: Ø CM 18/ LT: 3,7 – H. 100 cm about




Pitanga, also known as the cayenne cherry, is a tropical fruit with an unusual appearance and a sour taste very similar to our myrtle. It can be defined almost a relative of the latter, which in recent years has appeared spontaneously, even on the slopes of Mount Etna and which is perfect for flower beds and hedges.

The fruits are very picturesque and colorful, which due to their size are associated with cherries. Their taste is decidedly more sour, but they are often consumed in our country as a frozen food, at the base of pleasant refreshing and invigorating fruit juices.

Finally, the fruits are rich in vitamins, especially A and C, and minerals such as calcium, iron and phosphorus.

It can be marginally cultivated also in the zones with a Mediterranean climate where adult plants can bear temperatures as low as -5 ° C for a very short period, with damage to the foliage, taking care to repair the young plants which are damaged at temperatures just below 0 ° C.
