These are not tree like, but produce good fruit and have a fast growth:
Cucurbitaceae like melons, watermelons, cassabanana, etc. Pineapples are also good ones, as well as passionfruits.

Wich plants are you searching for?


I don't have phytosanitary certification, but I can make the plants being inspected, by appointment with the local phytosanitary services. It might take some time, and it has additional costs, but can be done.
Also I'm in EU.

Grapebush: Yes, I got your post on Facebook, that is terrible what happened. They have small greenhouses here that you can fix to the wall on your balcony, I will send you a link soon, that might be a good idea to protect your plants. I have been able to overwinter these ones inside last winter, next winter they go into an I heated greenhouse, so I don’t know if they’ll still look as good this time next year. ???

Cassio: thank you for the extra information. It seems the trees from your seeds remain a little bit smaller than some of the others. They didn’t set any fruit this year, but if they bloom again next year, I hope they will. If the fruit turns out to be to sour for my taste - I have never tasted any Uvaia yet - I will still keep these ones and try to cross them with a sweeter type. I think the fast fruiting is a very attractive trait in these rare fruits!

Thank you for the tip, Solko.
As soon as my economical situation allows, I intend to build myself a new greenhouse from scratch, with steel frame and policarbonate cover, but it might take a while before I'm able to buy all the tools and materials I need to do that, so you can send the link, please.


My adult plants are starting to form flower buds, let's see if this time I will taste any fruit.

The smaller ones (about same age as yours) are starting to put some new leaves, and branches, after the previous ones were completely blown by the stormy winds from last winter. A few of them died because of that.

Yours are looking much better than mine, but I must say, I'm not giving too much attention to thm lately, specially after what hapened to me last winter.
Have some older ones flowering for the second year; let's see if this time they will set some fruits to taste.

If you want to wait a few weeks, I can prepare airlayers of Inga feuillei and Inga edulis.

I would also be interested in this.

Didn't know if you notice that I'm outside USA?
I can prepare it and ship to you, but don't know if they will reach you, because of the restrictions of your customs, in what concerns plant import.

Cheers,
Nélio.

I had a bad experience with them a few years ago trough eBay.
Wrong seeds, wrong quantities, bad packaging, and very rude to answer questions to clarify things...

Were they sent from Brazil and what date?

Yes, they were sent from Brasil, by the end of November or beginning of December, and I got them in late February.
Seeds I purchased took 9 weeks to get through Brazil and to Florida. They were
well packaged in coir.

If mine were packed with coir, or any other media, I'm sure they should be alive when they arrived, but there were nothing but the seeds inside the plastic bag, as you can see from the pictures.

A little report on my experience with this seller:

I've bought some Eugenia beaurepairiana seeds from Mr. Dada, and after almost 2 months I got the package with the seeds.
As soon as I opened the envelope, I put off my happy face for finally get my hands on this species, as the packing method was very weird, being a mix of cardboard wraped on endless tape. When I finally get rid of all the tape, I've found the seeds inside a small plastic bag, without any kind of media, or moisture to keep them alive, and already showing signs of mold on the seed skin. As the seeds were incredibly lightweight I puted them in water, and none of them sank, so I decided to broke the skin to inspect the state of the embrio inside, and it was completely rotten, showing a lot of mold.

I contacted Mr. Dada explaining my situation, and asking for a refund, and for a week or so I got no answer at all, yesterday I sent him a new message, and he said that he sent seeds for other people as well and nobody complainted; sugesting that I should have no reason to complaint, or that I should be happy with what I got. I sent him another message, asking for refund, or otherwise I would publish it here, as I got no answer, I think Mr. Dada it's not interested in refunding my money, so everybody must know how this seller deals with his clients, and how he cares about what he sends out for other forum members.

Bellow you can see some images that show, what I got from him:

Loquats can be grafted to Cydonia Sp. Pyrus Sp. And Crataegus Sp. so maybe it might work the other way...

I know of a few trees of this species, and all of them are isolated, and fruit very well on their own, so I don't think they need more than one to fruit!
About how long the flowering last, I'm not sure, but I now that both flowering and fruiting are not uniform, and you can have sometimes flowers, small fruits, and almost ripe fruits at the same time, wich means you can never harvest all the fruit at once, sometimes even in the same raceme.
About shelf life I have no idea as I always eat them directly from the tree, and never tried to save some to see how long do they last.
Hello my friend! Did you eat any fruit yet? They are etable?  ::)

Yes, they are eatable, but not the best fruit I ever eat in my life! If properly ripe, they are a bit sweet, lightly crisp, and a bit adstringent.

About the flower smell, I've never notice a bad smell coming from it, but I also never put my nose close to it.

2 types of Eugenia uniflora added (plants).
Pachira glabra (plants).
And Solanum sisymbriifolium (seeds).

17
Seems like Treculia africana.
It doesn't have fleshy arils like artocaprus, and only the seeds are edible.
About the size, Helton in Brasil reported to harvest one in 2014 arround 24kg.   http://www.colecionandofrutas.org/treculiaafricana.htm

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Madruno or intermedia
« on: January 07, 2018, 05:32:27 PM »
I would say G. madruno as well, as the leaves seem to wide and thick for being intermedia, and also the new growth is too dark.
