Tropical Fruit Discussion / Myrceugenia growing experiences
« on: August 01, 2017, 06:07:53 PM »
I've recently become really interested in the Myrceugenia genus,  not only for their ornamental value but also for the possible edibility of the various fruits of this genus. Various sp. from this genus also seem to be pretty Hardy! Some sp. Appear to be Hardy up to USDA zone 6/7.
Does anyone grow any species from this genus? What's your experience been? How was the fruit quality/taste? Where can I find plants/seeds?
Specifically I'd like to know more about Myrceugenia chrysocarpa and Myrceugenia ovata var. nannophylla( but all info is welcome!).
Myrceugenia chrysocarpa seems to handle ≈ -20C without flinching.
Hardiness info:

I bought these fruits from a local Vietnamese supermarket. They're tiny!! Sweet and virtually no seed. does anyone know which variety this might be? Attached are pictures of the fruit and seed size, also a toothpick for scale  :P lol
