Pitanga (Surinam Cherry) Guaruja Red, Update from 2023

 My Guaruja Red tree produced pretty well again this past summer.  The fruits are sweet with some orange-like acidity, the flavor is excellent. Below are the pictures from early June 2023.

The tree is about 12 ft now, and I need a ladder to harvest the fruits.
The scions are usually available during our winter and spring sales at


  1. Are these fairly easy to root or should they be grafted? Thanks.

    1. These should be grafted. I don’t have experience rooting them.
