I find no mentions on P. nemorosa either way, although perhaps I missed something.

It's one of those cases where the answer, barring other data, is "highly probable, but I wouldn't just guess it to be a fact".  There are plenty of genera that contain both edible and toxic members. E.g. if someone had grown up enjoying Strychnos spinosa, Spinosa cocculoides, and Strychnos pungens... oh hey, look over there, Strychnos nux-vomica, let's try that one!  ;)

But, hey, maybe someone here from the areas of Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay or Uruguay where it grows will chime in with local knowledge  :)  You're in Junín? According to the distribution info it should be growing wild just to your northeast, including Entre Ríos.  Know any plant people there?  :)

BTW, you're the first person I've heard call the fruits of P.aculeata "nice".  ;)  But the nutritional profile on the leaves is just crazy good. Puts spinach to shame.

The one we grow here is called Florida sweet but that may well just be a made up name to sell trees.

Whoa! Overpriced. Mimosa in East LA sells them cheaper.

It is a Puangmanee Monthong hybrid 😇

Are there named varieties of Barbados/Acerola cherry????                                                                                                                          Patrick

A cross between Puang Manee and Monthong. It has more flesh than Puangmanee: we can have a mouthful bite of the mild, milky chocolate taste of Puangmanee.

Citrus General Discussion / Kosrae green tangerines
« Last post by Jessg333 on Today at 04:48:34 AM »
My husband use to fly through the island of kosrae regularly and would rave about their green, seedless,  sweet, easy to peel, tangerines. Sadly he was not allowed to bring any back home due to Hawaii’s agriculture regulations. He no longer flies to kosrae and really wants to find out what kind of tangerines grow there and how to get a tree if even possible. Does anyone know the name of the local green kosrae tangerines?
