Eugenia reinwardtiana is a shrub to small tree native to rainforests in northern Queensland, Australia, Indonesia, and the Pacific Islands. Common names include Cedar Bay Cherry, Mountain Stopper, and Nioi (Hawaii). They are typically 2 to 6 m (6.6 to 19.7 ft) in height.
The tree is cultivated to a limited extent for its edible sweetish fruit that is often eaten out-of-hand, used to flavour drinks and candies, or as a preserve. The fruit is a source of antioxidants.
