Harvesting Ubajay! Yellow fruits are unripe and unpleasant, but orange fruits are ripe and I like them raw! They do excelent icecreams, mermelades, chutneys, etc.

Could you explain the difference between Sweet Ubajay (Eugenia myrcianthes) and the new Sweet Ubajaymi (Eugenia aff myrcianthes)? The only thing I could find was that E. pyriformis is sometimes called Ubajay mi, but I think you use uvaia for that species.

Also I got the tracking number from you, but what company is the carrier?

Hi, it is an international mail, the tracking number should work for any mail service worldwide. I sent them by "Correo Argentino", our official state mail post office.

About Ubajaymi, the collector said it is sweeter  and smaller than sweet Ubajay, it is not uvaia.

In Brazil, I see yields greatest with Jabuticaba Sabará, given that they have about 4 crops a year and are very productive and precocious.  I found agreement with this in the literature as well:
and though I can't find a quantitative yield per hectare.

At Argentina, Misiones, Sabara produce 2 times a year, not 4.

I sent many packages yesterday and today

About growing Plinias, Campomanesias, Eugenias and Myrciarias from Misiones (Atlantic Forest):

I would just sow them in a good moist soil and wait 20 to 90 days for them to sprout (64ºF to 86ºF, 18ºC to 30ºC), in the shade; no summer sun when small, good water if possible (rain, acid), or without chlorine; use acid soil with sphagnum moss or river peat with nice forest leaves or so, garden soil, something that drains well like perlite or vermiculite, some organic matter ... I would later add manure, not when I sow. Be very careful with the direct sun in summer or when it is very hot, get accustomed to the shade and never lack water. They could take full sun when taller than 2 feet or 60cm or so, before that, use morning sun or half shade (not too hot from the afternoon heat). Campomanesias and Psidium would support more sun, but take care.

I hope you can grow them well.


I am preparing many packages today and will be sending many this week

Is the Orange Eugenia identified already? Is it Eugenia Luschnathiana?

Hi, no, we just dont know what it is but it is aff. involucrata.

Adding new species or variety:

* On stock! Sweet "Ubajaymi" (Eugenia myrcianthes) Very Rare species! The common ubajay is bigger and more acid. Frost resistance: -9º C or so. Wet seeds in vermiculite. Fruits 3cm diameter. Total stock: 87 seeds (26 Nov.)

5 seeds USD 16
10 seeds USD 30
20 seeds USD 58
40 seeds USD 110

Got the seeds very shortly after shipping.  Marcos is the man!

Thanks for reporting and good luck with them!


I had the opportunity to taste guabiroba in a good state of maturation and I loved its flavor: sweet, almost no acid, particular (when they are overripe they remind me a bit of tropical guava), with a pleasant perfume that reminded uvaia (when there are many fruits together); I recommend avoiding chewing the seeds because they are VERY spicy. I think we'll make delicious ice cream with its pulp!

Selling seeds now.

Sweet Ubajay by Friday 23

New species: yellow/orange acerola!

* Yellow/Orange Acerola (Malpighia emarginata)  Sweet & acid taste, tropical, frost resistance -2ºC. Very high vitamin C!  Wet seeds in vermiculite.

5 seeds, 14 USD
10 seeds, 23 USD
20 seeds, 42 USD
40 seeds, 78 USD

NOTE: the collector sent me these seeds telling me that they were from the ultra rare Myrciaria sp. from Paraguay (I have some trees from that species but not fruiting yet!), but in fact the seeds are from Plinia rivularis, a rare but known species.

* Guaporetí (Plinia rivularis) Fruit is sweet and not acid, similar to guabiju in that regard, the dark brown skin is tasty similar to jaboticaba but not acid, and the pulp taste like guabiju and multifruit juice (banana, orange, apple, peach, jaboticaba), it has a personal taste, very good. One seed per fruit, rarely two. Frost resistance: -6º C, very hardy species.

On stock

2 seeds USD 9

I recently received some of your seeds in excellent condition.  The only problem is they are much larger than the Plinia rivularis seeds I've planted in the past (almost 3-4 times as large), and the seeds I planted before are confirmed to be the correct species.

Also, Plinia rivularis is a small fruit, so I'm wondering if you have a picture of the mother tree, or a picture of some fruits to confirm this tree's identity?


Hello Adam,

I am happy the seeds arrived in excellent condition.
Yes, I can send a picture of the tree, the fruit is not season now, I will take the picture of the mothers trees and send to you
This seeds was collected of  6 different mother tree in the shore forest  of the sea of the state of Sao Paulo,
Probably you received two size of seeds, one small other bigger, the fruit are the same, but some mother tree have big fruit , and other mother tree have small fruit
The main feature of the Plinia rivularis seeds is inside the seed the color is pink.



Hi, I am in shok now:

"The main feature of the Plinia rivularis seeds is inside the seed the color is pink. "

so I have Plinia rivularis :-)
