Hey guys, two more I'd requests please. Any information would be useful. One is a nice climbers which sprouted nicely in early spring and then is producing red berries of some type. The second I'm not sure. Thanks!

Photo#1 [ which is actually the 2nd pic] is a Brazillian Cherry. This is not a climber but will grow into a small tree or can be kept as a hedge.
The fruit is refreshing.
Think the other one is Night Jasmin. Does it have creamy white flowers?

I loath and detest Brazillian Cherries. They taste like medicine to me. :-@

One I just can't aquire.
We all ate them as kids, just because everyone else did, but I secretly hated them.

Thanks for your help guys. Yes the other one does have creamy white flowers when in bloom. Is it a pest or worth keeping?
And can you really eat the fruit from the Brazilian tree! It won't poison me ha!

You can eat them but I would wait until they are very red and just softening. They are a bit sour. :lol:
The night jasmin is okay but a good trim after flowering keeps it looking good.
