Eugenia reinwardtiana (Chamorro: a'abang) is a shrub to small tree in the family Myrtaceae native to tropical forests in northern Queensland, 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.
