I have a strawberry guava that makes the yellow fruits.  If you let them get really ripe and soft on the plant they are really good.  The red ones are good too.

Looks like yellow strawberry guava to me but Im no expert.

Yes, to me too.

I would like to reserve sete capote seeds if possible.

Hi, I will have some in 3 weeks or so.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / psidium sp. ¿?
« on: June 16, 2018, 09:54:46 AM »
Mother trees and fruits from Misiones (not mine):







Unripe fruits are green, they ripe in a light yellow.





our tree:

the leaves are similar to psidium cattleianum but when I break them the smell is not similar to strawberry guava (var sabine), and it is similar to lemon guava (var lucidum); but the trunks get red/pink and the new leaves get this redish or pinkish color, different to psidium cattleianum... and the veins are not so noticeable... what do you think?

The achachairu in your photo is identical to my garcinia humilis (which is young and hasn't fruited yet).


very thanks! I HOPE SO!

Sawdust is perfect to use after it is composted. Mix it with grass cuttings it will turn dark brown in three months then it's safe to mix it in soil.

Hi, very thanks to all of you, I will do it that way!

Hi, I got these plants from Misiones this week. The seller said that cabeludinha is m. glazioviana, from seeds from Brazil, and that the fruits has a lot of pulp and very sweet... it sounds good, what do you think, do they look like m. glomerata or m. glazioviana?











And this achachairu or pacurí: she said the fruits are orange (not yellow as another native species) and very sweet too, would it be garcinia humilis like she believe?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / pine sawdust in the soil: good or not?
« on: June 10, 2018, 10:41:45 AM »
Do you think pine sawdust in pots for jaboticabas and other myrtáceas or even garcinias, will it be good?

It is from loggers in the area where they cut assembled pine woods, maybe glued with some vinyl glue, which should be remnants of vinyl glue in the substrate ... but I found out that a nursery that sells me jaboticabas includes sawdust (I do not know from what wood) to lighten the substrate and the plants look great! they keep moist and drains well.

I need it because is free and I can get a lot of it! that way my pots will be lighter and cheaper... but, would the plants suffer?

If they set fruit at such a small size I might just leave this 3 footer in a pot



what a nice plant!  I am happy for you

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: rooting jabouticaba
« on: June 09, 2018, 09:55:39 PM »
there are many successful brazilian experiments, I read that on scientific papers but I cant find them now...

normal materiales: vermiculite, no rooting hormone was better... the best time was spring and autumn, not summer nor winter. Indoors.

It didnt worked for me but I should try harder!!!

Now that I have them on my hands, I can take better photos:


to the left in a lighter color, we see the biribá of hawaii, and to the right with darker leaves we see the mysterious annona of Misiones.







If I break leaves of both species and smell, they are similar, not cherimola nor atemoya, nor muricata, nor parviflora...

So I dont know what could it be... maybe related to rollinia, similar to biribá, but what misleads me is that the seller said that the fruit is green!

what could it be?

Have had aewsome germination on many of the Psidium species marcos! The eugenias and myrcianthes are also all doing well for the most part. Thanks again! super stoked

hehe, I edited miguel for marcos.

I am so happy for you Natty! Keep in the shade most of the day... they can take a bit of "fresh" morning sun but take care!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: could it be eugenia pitanga?
« on: June 01, 2018, 12:39:33 PM »
Very thanks! I see the same. She dont sell it as eugenia pitanga, but as a dwarf pitanga that bears fruits in 2 years, so I thought it could be e. pitanga.

« on: May 31, 2018, 12:42:40 PM »
Now I have photos of the leaves, they look like eugenia uniflora, what do you think?

« on: May 31, 2018, 08:29:46 AM »
Ok, very thanks! but I remember to see on the net ribbed eugenia pitanga...

http://www.colecionandofrutas.org/eugeniapitanga.htm

ok maybe it is just an early bearing eugenia uniflora?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / could it be eugenia pitanga?
« on: May 30, 2018, 09:48:45 PM »

Hi, the seller said that it bears fruits at 2 years old, 30cm tall... but could these fruits be from that species? or just a normal eugenia uniflora?



24
Red hybrid has small leaves and those ones look a bit big. The new growth is often more coppery than that.

ok thanks Mike, yes, I think this one looks a bit different, I need better photos.
