Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Re: Selling: Red jaboticaba seeds
« on: February 16, 2018, 12:13:05 PM »
Hello, do you know what variety? Thanks

It should be myrciaria cauliflora x aureana, very nice flavour

Arazá-una harvest started! I have some new guaviyú and uvaias too

It happens sometimes. And dont disturb the soil looking to see if it rot. About 70% of the time they put out new sprouts after the initial die back. Keep in indirect sunlight. Keep soil moist. Dont give em too much care. I've noticed that they do not like heavy, dense mixes when wet.

Given the fact that the new growth is very similar to red hybrid and that the red hybrid is a mix of cauliflora x aureana, this other ones should be m. cauliflora... dont you think?

no no, it should be just the red hybrid!

Few know that chamba was actually the inspiration behind British anarchist rock band Chumbawamba. Good harvest song.

wtf? chamba is almost unknown outside its region (Colombia, ¿some parts of Brazil?)

So, how could it be possible? it would be an amazing history... do you have some link or more references?

Hi, congrats!!! Campomanesia is one if my favourites genous. The leaves are similar to c. lineatifolia, chamba, and the fruit obviously is similar to many campomanesias, but it remembers me sete capotes specially, c. guazumifolia. This last one tastes like an orange but with sand apple texture to me, and when it is overripe it tastes like jaboticaba. But, yes, you can say it tastes a bit like pear, very nice.

I dont have schlechtendaliana, is it too tropical? I grow guazumifolia, lineatifolia and xanthocarpa.





It is growing well here in Hawaii.

I notice it  gets tastier if I let it get soft on table.  Much better than i expected.  Wish it was bigger fruit!


Yes, there are bigger campomanesia fruits, chamba is one of those

Hi, in this first too photos, they look like coronata or trunciflora to me:





And in the next photo the new growth seems similar to red hybrid (the color and by the remarkable ribs)... but I dont know, the leaves are more elongated than my red hybrids... so... ¿?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Is 1 jaboticaba enough?
« on: February 11, 2018, 04:08:03 PM »
I don't believe yield is improved with multiple specimens. Each flower will produce a fruit, ie, there is no need for cross pollination.

But you will get more fruits with more trees, and enjoy better if different species

I am very happy about this:









I assume that they will prefer some shade now when they are small, or half shade, not full sun ...

maybe I should enter them in my house in winter, since they are quite tropical? Will I do as I do with guanabana?

Hi, one is never enough. Why not have dozens of different kinds? Space/time to fruition are the usual players but, i would still try and squeeze a few in here and there. I have "Sabara"s" that fruit almost non-stop and i appreciate their effort and their beauty. Each to their own, but I love having/caring for them. Best regards, Chris

I grow 13 species and like them all, even If I didnt got fruits yet!

how did that greenhouse work out for you? the one i see in the picture from 2015?

I will try to get pics of my G. gardneriana for you, so we can compare leaves, yours does look a little funny now that i see 2015 pics, reminds me of gardneriana more i suppose...it would be nice if it was brasiliensis (maybe a superior form) or even gardneriana, or achachairu...they're all good eating fruits.


Ok, thanks, greenhouse is resistant to high wind. You should use a good wood so it will not rotten! as I did not bar the wood in 2 years, and it is a cheap wood, it rotted on several sides and I am repairing it now.

Ok, maybe brasilensis or gardneriana, fruit should be good. Very sensitive to wind and full sun...

Seller was probably right. You'll find out when it fruits  ;)


Ok, but what are the differences betweet achachairu fruit and pacurí fruit?

Besides obvious differences in the fruit, there are differences in new growth, leaves, ends/tips of branches are slightly different as well. When you have new growth pushing out from the tips take photos and post it here. That will help

Hi, I found photos from september 2015:

eugenia repanda is ripening faster, the first harvest should be in 2 weeks or less, and then another big harvest.

photos from today:













Prices:

black Eugenia Repanda (harvesting late feb, then later on march and april) (discount):
5 seeds USD 12,
10 seeds USD 20
20 seeds USD 38

This small and hardy bush likes shade and bears small cherry like (acid and sweet) fruits, it could be in full sun, semi shaded spot or full shade: it will fruit anywhere. Frost resistance: -6ºC

I have a very rare variety: ripe fruits are almost black! Normally, eugenia repanda use to be red.








16
Interested!
How does this fruit taste?

Hi, guaviyú is sweet, 24º Brix when overripe, 20º Brix normal ripeness; no acid. A flavour that I can not compare to other fruits... it was the favourite fruit of Anestor Mezzomo (he tasted something like 930 fruits, so it is not bad).

In any doubt, just ask me

Regards

Escarlate is the sweetestbeing just a shade sweeter than red hybrid. Sabara is also sweet of course. Vexator has a plum like quality with maroon flesh near the skin but with thick skin and large seeds the flesh yield is low.

I remember the only one red hybrid fruit that I ate 2 years ago as one of the best fruit I taste, thanks for the report. I just hope that the fruit fly doesnt mess with my jaboticaba fruits...

Hi,

I went to my friend's field and I can confirm we will have some more guabijú in 1 week or so. We are in the middle of a drought so fruits are small this year, but this variety of guaviyú is interesting because it bears fruits at 4 years old.

Ok, thanks all, it would be fun if I have achachairú, as the seller said it was pacurí -garcinia brasilensis or gardneriana or something like that- 3 years ago... but back then, some of you wrote that the leaves were rare to be g. brasilensis... so...

Not Achachairu. Stems/tips and leaves are different

Ok, thanks, I would like to know about differences

I also would have guessed achacha  :-\

haha, well, I hope so! but almost nobody has achachairu at Misiones

Looks like my achacha?
Before the cold nights defoliated mine. Hopefully will leaf back out this Spring


Hi, I dont think it is achachairu (garcinia humilis): that species is from hotter climates. Many garcinias look similar.

The tree is from Misiones, maybe 3 or 4 years old. I have 2 more of them, they dont like full sun or wind.
