(One of my) Pimenta cumari varieties

This one had a really slow start this year. The seeds were old, over 10 years, so I even suspected it wouldn't germinate. But it did. It's a beautiful variety from Brazil. The flowers are beuatiful, and the branches are easily broken. Actually quite unlike any other varieties I have grown.

Many varieties go under this name - pimenta cumari. I have grown both baccatum and chinense species with this name. But this one is my favorite.
