Hi
The seeds arrived today! Only 15 days. They look great, most seeds are rooted.
I will separate tomorrow and plant all seeds that are rooted in dirt and moisten the remaining seeds if needed.
I see some extra seeds
THANK YOU
Mike

Thanks for reporting. some other mails will take 30 days to be there.

Please keep in mind that guaviyú loves water but, when just sprouting, you must not overwater them.

Received my Guaviyu and Araza seeds yesterday. Package arrived in great shape
and about 1/2 of the seeds had already begun to sprout.

Well done Marcos!
Michael

Very thanks for reporting, Michael. Try to grow them in the shade for 1 year or so, guaiviyú needs more shade than araza-una in the start. You can think of guaviyú as an eugenia uniflora in the matter of cultural needs, but it is more cold tolerant.

They are both very tasty species.

I didnt posted better photos of myrcia selloi here, and there is not too much on the net:












taste is rare, very sweet but spicy too, and a bit bitter

 Maybe I forgot to tell that guaviyu needs some light to sprout, so dont cover 100% with soil, let it see some light

This week I will be able to send many more mails with seeds because other sete capotes fell ripe:









The taste is different to any myrtaceae I know, while uvaias could remind to jaboticaba or arazá-una remember me to strawberry guava, tropical guava and jaboticaba, sete capotes is different to all of them... to imagine the flavour, maybe you sould think about a mix of apples+oranges.

I think there are very few photos on the net about its interior. I measured this one and it was 14.5º Brix, a very tasty fruit, one of my favourites.

Nice photos!
Is the skin eaten too?
Would this campomanesia fruit in a pot?

Yes, the skin is not bad, near the skin the pulp is sweeter.

It will fruit in a pot, as it can do it from 2 feet tall. (all the species I am offering will fruit in a pot)

more sete capotes (c. guazumifolia) and arazá rojo (strawberry guava)







both are very tasty fruits, but I am loving sete capotes more than ever, it is a very tasty fruit and I can imagine how good it would be chamba (c. lineatifolia) in a few years when fruiting! as people says chamba is the best of campomanesias

Tomorrow I should send the mails

Hi, it could be a bit less if the mail is light weighted, for instance seeds that can travel dry, sete capotes, arazá-una. strawberry guava and araticú could do it.

In any doubt, please ask me, thanks

Today I asked this at the post office: yes, it could be just 10 USD if the mail weights less than 20gr and you have to wait 30 days.

Today I measured a perfectly ripe strawberry guava (from my parents house, fruit fly free) and it was 20º Brix! amazing fruit, very sweet and tasty, I hope I can kill all my fruitflies at our garden, so we can enjoy them at its best.

I am adding lemon guava, I have 2 varieties, one of them from a nursery at Argentina, lemon flavour mixed with araçá-una and peach (I would say), 18º Brix, http://tropicalfruitforum.com/index.php?topic=9116.25 , very small seeds, you almost cant notice them.



and the other from seeds from Portugal (Steven Da Silva), flavour is similar to strawberry guava, different from the other. http://tropicalfruitforum.com/index.php?topic=3117.msg247313#msg247313



I love both of them.

Yellow lemon guava (psidium cattleianum var lucidum) (New, march 2017)
20 seeds (USD 4)
40 seeds (USD 7)
80 seeds (USD 12)
160 seeds (USD 22)

Adding anacahuita too:

* Anacahuita (blepharocalyx salicifolius) (NEW march 2017)
5 seeds (USD 10)
10 seeds (USD 18)
20 seeds (USD 34)




7mm fruits, small, taste is sweet, 19º Brix, reminds me of bitter oranges + something else... maybe orange mermelade... or some candy I cant remember right now.

Today I measured a very ripe sete capotes from my parents house, it was more yellow than ever and soft, the flavour was very sweet and 19º Brix, I think this is as far as it can get.

Hello, for those who wonder about the frucrification period of the e. Repanda, I commented that this year I am following closely, since we have a total of approximately 25 plants planted in different places: field, weekend house, in the sidewalk of the city, in my garden and in pots.

There are some of them that have well-ripened black fruits here in March, late summer, and are about to bloom again (perhaps because of a reaction to dryness and then to rain), then those plants will bear fruit in 2 months, as late as May In the middle of autumn. So that the fruiting extends between January and May, maybe 5 or 6 months if you have several plants in your garden. Some of them are more dark red than black.

Fot those who received the seeds or are waiting: grow them in the shade, no sun for now till they are taller than 30cm (1 feet) or so. Psidium can take more sun, but be patient and dont burn them. Eugenia repanda, guaviyu, anacahuita, myrcia, sete capotes can take half shade in 1 or 2 years and then full sun when bigger; araticu, natal plum, pisidiums can take more sun when younger.
