thats pretty interesting.

Arryan is not a Latin name as far as i know
Plinia is, so it really doesnt make sense.

Luma Apiculata
 Myrtus communis
and
 Psidium sartorianum ( Sartre guava)
have all been called   Arrayan

Arrayan is a small guava relative called in Mexico, also has small leaves like the plinias.....

I've since found out that Arryan is a region in South America so no doubt it is
Plinia sp. Arryan .The guava is probably from the same region

i neglected to mention the leaves look much more like Jaboticaba / Plinia
than it does a guava.

The area is in Santiago Chile.
(unless there are others with that name)
which is interesting. Santiago gets frost.
keep us updated with pics...
when it gets larger, some of the Plinaia experts might be able to ID it better
or, give us an idea of which Plinia it is related to the closest

I agree with Raulglruiz , the seedlings do look like the Arrayan we have here in Mexico , on the other side they do look very similar to a jaboticaba seedling . I have several Jaboticabas that do not have a full scientific and common name and were sent to me as Myrciaria / Plinia sp  from this or that area or with the name of the guy in whose orchard they were collected . Probably the " Arryan " was a typo missing one A .
