Jabuticaba rajada
I found this tree in the final of fruit season, I did taste some fruits and was very sweet (better than Sabará in this first experience).  I'm definitely going to monitor this tree next year. Fruits remain with "rajado" colour even after fallen from the trees.

minimun order: 10 seeds
usd 4 each + shipment

Acnistus arborescens
Sweet fruits, one of those when we start eating the fruit it's hard to stop. Perfect for those who want to attract and observe birds.

15 USD per 100 seeds + shipment (USD 3) - [Very small seed so it's possible to send it as paper letter]

Strychnos
Few seeds available, Helton said it possibly is Strychnos tomentosa, but I'm not sure. A vine plant growing on other trees, the fruits have a good attractive sweet smell, but to me the taste was not very interesting (sweet at first, but a slight bitter taste together). A plant for collectors and curious people.

USD 3 each + shipment

Psidium "sertão"
A botanist friend said it is a variety of Psidium guineense with bigger fruits and leaves and Helton think it could be Psidium grandifolium, so I'm not sure about species id. What I can say is that fruit taste is much better than common Psidium guineense in my opinion. Taste is similar to Psidium eugeniaefolia, juicy, aromatic, sweet and slightly acidic. The fruits remain green when ripe. I found only two individuals in the region and both have a lying growth habit.
Local common name: Araçá-do-sertão

USD 2 each + shipping

Sicana odorifera red skin
I fell in love with this fruit. When the fruit stays longer in the plant (very mature) the taste gets a lot better. The taste of the juice reminds me of apple+melon. Very aromatic fruit.
20 seeds - USD10 + shipping

For better thread organization, I would like to ask to all:
- Use private message when you have particular questions.
- If your doubt can also be from others and increase the information about the fruits, trees, species, etc please feel free to comment as you like.
- Give preference to the 'Reply' button instead of 'Quote' to avoid repetitions and overlays of images in the topic.
Thanks in advance.

I intend to send Acnistus arborescens (very small seeds) as camouflaged in the middle of papers so the freight cost of this species will be lower (USD 3). I'll make my first attempt next week.

Jabuticaba Taquaril
I'm not sure what species/variety is this, so "Taquaril" is its name for now. Only a reference to the locality where I found it.
Local people call it 'jabuticaba-do-mato" (wild jabuticaba). Not so many fruits on the tree, it was final fruiting season when I found it.
Despite being wild, it tastes deliciously sweet, on the same level as Sabara variety. The fruits have persistent sepals and a slightly velvety appearance.
A tree overview video here.

USD 3,5 each + shipping (minimum order: 10 seeds)

Genipa infundibuliformis
Tree have lobed leaves, very beautiful and elegant. Fruit with sweet smell, very pleasant aroma. Taste is very particular, I have difficult to describe it, but let's try: Slightly sweet pulp with absolutely no acidity, the taste reminds me date palm or dried fruits, something reminds me the taste of coffee or coke. It seems to me that in Brazil this fruit is unknown, different from its relative Genipa americana that is quite popularly used for liqueurs, drinks, candies. I prepared a juice macerating the pulp with a little water and sugar and I liked the taste a lot.

I haven't tasted the Genipa americana yet but Helton says on his page that Genipa infundibuliformis has a nicer flavor than Genipa americana.

USD 1 each
minimum order: 20 seeds (In case you're buying seeds of other species in the same order, I can send 10 seeds of this Genipa)

Eugenia pyriformis
Low acidity variety, perfectly possible to eat many fruits in-natura without making ugly face. Several seeds germinated so I recommend not to be late in ordering. I can send pre-germinated or not germinated seeds as you prefer.

Eugenia florida
Fruits collected from a wild tree located in an area of preserved Atlantic Forest.
I've seen people talking about selected varieties of this species, but I believe it's just a matter of strong fertilization, irrigation, and cultural dealings to get rich, beautiful fruits. I agree with what was said about the taste, it is even delicious.
More information about taste of this species here.

Pre-germinated Strychnos seeds available.
According to Helton (Colecionando frutas) it is Strychnos tomentosa, a species he had been searching for a long time. It was my contribution to his fruit collection.

Butia eriospatha
I believe most of the friends here haven't yet realized how delicious this fruit is. I'll record some videos and post here to try to show its features.
Species native from southern Brazil (latitude -30) but produces abundantly in Minas Gerais state (latitude -19), several bunches of fruits throughout the year. This is the best palm fruit I have ever eaten, sweet, very juicy, absolutely amazing.

USD 2 each + shipment (minimum 10 seeds)

A nice brochure about Butia palms: http://www.fzb.rs.gov.br/upload/20160504124508vida_no_butiazal.pdf

Marlierea spp [Mirtaceae]
Sweet and viscous pulp, taste is a mix of jabuticaba with a touch of guava, no bitterness or acidity. I didn't see the tree but my friend told me it have 7 meters tall inside the forest. Not so good pulp/seed ratio but taste is really good.

USD 2,5 each (minimum 10 seeds for a single package or 5 seeds for mix packages). Only 25 seeds available.

Passiflora vitifolia
It is a vine with cylindric stems covered in red-brown hairs when young. The leaves are serrate, three-lobed, up to 15 cm long and 18 cm broad. The lobed leaves' resemblance to grape leaves gives this passionflower its specific epithet, "vitifolia," meaning "grape leaves" after the Latin for grape "vitis."
It is slightly acid but not too much. Taste fragrant and a bit spicy too, makes the tip of the tongue slightly anesthetized. I planted seeds 30 days ago and some seeds are sprouting.

10 seeds (15 usd) + shipping

Butia eriospatha video (5 kids tasting Butia for the first time, subtitles in english)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mzV_6wQaBdY

I spent a few days trying to find children to make this video. Luckily, yesterday I was coming home when I met this mother and children walking down the street where I live. I asked the mother if it would be possible to record a video with the kids and she happily agreed. As I expected, the kids loved it. I haven't had a chance to eat in-natura dates (Phoenix dactylifera fruits) yet, but I suspect that Butia eriospatha is perhaps the "not yet famous best palm fruit to eat in-natura in the world". Simply delicious, people can't stop eating after started. I have insisted on talking about this fruit because it is wonderfully good to eat.

Vigorous plant, easy to grow. Seed/pulp ratio is not very good but the beauty of the plant easily pays for the investment. The taste is similar to the taste of coconut water.

For greater chances of success in germination it is recommended to plant seeds as fresh as possible, so I ask those interested not to waste time.
