Busy bees! 🐝🐝🐝 (turn sound ON to hear them)
This Brazilian cherry tree (pretty much a weed around here!) will be loaded with fruit in a couple of months. Until then, it is a fascinating sight each morning watching these amazing creatures doing their thing.
The fruit of this tree are quite tart and make an interesting jam. The tree is so pretty. Before our family dog went to heaven, she used to sit under the tree and looked like she was covered in snow instead of white blossoms.
We are keeping a keen eye on the mulberry tree a few metres away, too!
🍒Eugenia Uniflora, usually called Pitanga in Brazil, Suriname cherry or Brazilian cherry, is a plant native to tropical South America’s east coast .
🍒I had never seen this fruit before and today we stumbled with this tree growing in the wild along our mountain trek 😃🌲⛰🌳⛰ .
🍒These little fruits resemble a cherry and are very high in antioxidants. They have a very pleasant flavor, with sweet and sour notes and the outer part next to the skin has kind a somewhat floral edge 💐 .
🍒in Brazil, the leaves are spread on house floors, so that when crushed underfoot, they exude a smell which repels flies.
The leaves are also used for tea in certain parts of Uruguay .
🍒Eugenia uniflora has several significant pharmacological properties: antihypertensive, antidiabetic, antitumor and analgesic, and it has shown antiviral and antifungal activity. It also shows significant anti-inflammatory properties and is used extensively as folk medicine in South America against stomach diseases .
👉👉Guess what I ‘ll do with these wild botanical cherries? Ferment them! 😁🙌🍒⚱️👍 So excited to taste something new and of course a good old wild fermentation will do the job! 🤗💗
Got some Brazilian Cherry, possibly to use on ukulele fretboards, the rosewood was insanely expensive, also a piece of Koa, I think for making bridges, the red oak is for a bathroom built in. #hardwood#braziliancherry#woodwork#koa#redoak
