Eugenia involucrata, the Cherry of the Rio Grande, is an evergreen shrub native to Brazil which bears small fruits that are dark red to purple in color and have a sweet cherry-like flavor.

Generally a low maintenance tree that's easy to grow. Although they prefer a sunny position, part shade is tolerated. Adequate nutrition and water should be supplied at all times, particularly during flowering and fruit development, generally increasing fertiliser rate commensurate with tree size; little research has been conducted to provide detailed regimes. Although they have a shallow root system, they have some tolerance to dry conditions but at the cost of reduced yield. Mulching is beneficial.
