In a visit to San Francisco Botanic Backyard I used to be capable of finding Ugni molinae (Proper) and Luma apiculata (Left)
I took an image of the Luma tree however forgot to get one of many Ugni bush-
The Luma style like blueberries on the inside and fairly good- the pores and skin has a licorice taste that I’m keen on however some individuals may not like.
Have you ever ever puzzled the place the “skittles” taste comes from? It is this fruit- they’re very tasty, solely downside with each of those is that they’re small.
I used to be wandering round a farmers market after I noticed a little bit stand that had simply 3 baskets of “Cherry Guavas” left, I fortunately grabbed one for $5 and might verify Psidium longipetiolatum off the record now
These are scrumptious and would possibly signify the very best different to cherries in subtropical climates. I didnt get a lot guava taste from them in any respect.
