Hi,

As soon as I get more seeds/species I will post in the forum, but this will be most likely by next spring, we are on autumn now; I am still eating some myrcia selloi, eugenia repanda, there is 1 psidium australe in the bush and sete capotes is still flowering and bearing just a few.

Originally, I had:

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.

The sweetness of all of them is 12 º Brix or so, well balanced acidity/sweetness

(* e. lutescens or an hybrid, fruit is sweet and acid (more pear shaped than the other), from one planted tree at my backyard, growing habit: bush, 9 years old, 3m tall), max order 20 seeds.

Hi, I added some sugar to one of the lutescens or hibrid uvaias and let it rest for a while, then, it tasted like passionfruit+tangerine! so cool!

I was missing this tone in the taste: now I am 100% sure they taste like a soft passionfruit+tangerine, and the smell is very similar to caramel or "dulce de leche".

I have 5 rough skined red leaves uvaia seeds now for sale. PM me if you want them.

I labeled the uvaias like this:

uvaia flat (flattened shape, maybe hybrid)
uvaia pear (pear shaped, maybe hybrid)
uvaia rough (red new leaves, rough skin, maybe hybrid)


All of them have characteristics of both e. pyriformis and e. lutescens

Hi, I am waiting for the rest of the e. repandas to ripe to send the next mails (1 to 2 weeks). I have 30 or more arazá-una (black strawberry guava, psidium eugeniaefolia) seeds left: keep in mind that this is one of the best fruits I ever tasted, 16º Brix, and I have many guabiju seeds left, it is 24º Brix, very sweet.

For now, I will add a very rare myrtaceae, myrcia selloi to available species:





5 seeds (USD 10), 10 seeds (USD 18), 20 seeds (USD 34)

Small tree 2-3 m, very straight brown trunk and twisted branches. Leaves are dark green, bright and very small (ca. 1.0-1.5 cm). Tree top low and dense, wider than high. Flowering is extremely abundant, covering the small fragrant flowers plant. The fruits are small (0.5-0.8 cm), red-scarlet and remember the flavor of Surinam cherries (Eugenia uniflora), but it is a very strange taste: very sweet, spicy and bitter. I think it even could be nice in salads, can go well in salty preparations too. Not a fruit for kids.

Uses: Of great ornamental value, is the beautiful aspect of this small tree, as the exuberance of flowering and fruiting. Excellent apicultural plant. Very attractive for birds. It goes very well as potted plant, better still in bonsai.

Cultivation: Well drained soils, full sun and tropical and subtropical climates. It grows faster when well fertilized.

Frost resistance: -6º C or so. I will measeure ºBrix as soon as the first fruits turn fully black,
