Eugenia is a genus of ornamental fruit bearing trees and shrubs that have an upright, compact habit of growth with dense dark green foliage, small white, fluffy flowers, bearing clusters of cherry sized succulent fruits. Plants within this group generally range from 2m-15m in height and are indigenous to the humid tropical regions. Australia’s only native Eugenia is the Beach Cherry, also known as the Cedar Bay Cherry, which is commonly found along beach fronts, rocky headlands and littoral rainforests, ranging from the Daintree region of Far North Queensland inhabiting the coastline southwards through to Bundaberg.
