My experience with Iwasaki over the last two years has shown that it is no more vigorous then Xie Shan or Miho Wase, all are on Rich 16-6 and have been planted two years.

Looks like Popcorn Cassia (Senna didymobotra).  If you smash a leaf it should smell like popcorn.  Looks like a caterpillar has been eating it.  It is a favorite host plant for the Giant Cloudless Sulphur butterfly.  No fruit (seedpods tho), but beautiful flowers.  Check the smell of crushed leaves.

If I have time I'll send you photos, these days I'm busy here.

Aureanas are flat boring trees, use some sabará or the common hybrid to make grafts, will have more success.

there are many local names, and not everything is on the internet, for example here where I live, I have seen more than 10 types of Jabuticaba Olho de Boi, so this is very variable and not everything on the internet, jabuticabas has many endemisms, the sometimes an isolated type of the same species looks different than another of the same species.

About these sites, I have no information, I have no contact.

Maybe macuri can be grafted on aureana, or could be crossed?

Hey, Alexandre, now that you show their leaves -very thanks for that!-, I would like o have good photos of the most common jaboticaba species: m. coronata, m.  jaboticaba sabará, m. cauliflora (paulista...) ... could you take photos like you did with m.  aureana and macurí?

It is so difficult to ID them seing photos on the net!

Having photos of new sprouts would be very useful so! I can collaborate if I can ID my jabos exactly...

I found these:
(why they call sabará to m. cauliflora???)
Since I deal with lots and lots of these seeds , cleaning them and let dry for shipping , some get stolen by wildlife and end up germinated in unusual places . Most of the time I cut these down or pull them out . Some that are not really in the way of planting space for other trees I leave them for experimenting with later on . Well of these produced good size fruits now , not normal ...season usually ends latest in July . Never noticed them since this tree ( only 2 meters tall ) grows in an not much visited area outside of the orchard .

Only 30 some seeds available @ 2 USD each plus shipping . Due to problems with US customs ( people with no permit ) I'd rather sell the whole badge to ONE person outside of the USA . Sorry .
Citrus General Discussion / Re: Rootstocks ??

I have a Meyer lemon on Flying Dragon rooted into the ground using a bottomless rootstock.  It bears pertty well but I don't like FD because it extends dormancy and induces chlorosis.

I have 20 citrus all on flying dragon in 7 gallon containers. The only one chlorotic is meyer lemon.

Can anyone help with the ID of this jaboticaba? I got it a while ago and it is labeled "Sabara 5."  The leaf shape is clearly not sabara and I have never seen another jaboticaba with such intense red new growth. Any of the Myrciaria experts out there have any ideas about what it is?


This is similar to one I have, Helton says it could be a wild variety of m. coronata and Adam S. thinks it could be m. cauliflora var paulista:

does it grows faster than others and does it likes any kind of water?

mine is very hardy.
