שם לועזי: Eugenia uniflora
צמח טרופי שמוצאו מברזיל. מקור השם בפורטוגזית. בהודו הוא נקרא "דובדבן ברזיל". לישראל הגיע בסביבות 1920. הצמח אינו זקוק להרבה מים, והוא ירוק כל השנה, פורח פעמיים בשנה ונותן פירותיו שלושה שבועות לאחר הפריחה. פירותיו אכילים, צבעם אדום כהה, כתום וסגול כהה וטעמם חמצמץ. ככל שצבע הפרי כהה יותר טעמו פחות חמצמץ. לפרי גלעין גדול יחסית לגודל הפרי, בעלי העץ משתמשים להרחקת חרקים.
