I saw jilos for sale in Rio de Janeiro farmer's market, but did not get to taste them. How is the taste? Did you like them?

Hi, I need more fruits to taste it, for now I opened it and picked some seeds, but I would love to taste it. It smells nice, like an eggplant. By the way, I sent your package today

I tasted a ripe jilo, red colour, not green as they consume it at Brazil, I boiled it for 15 minutes. The taste was very good, comparable to a mix between sweet potato and potato, not too bitter, just fine. I liked it more than any eggplant.

Today I was eating one of the late sete capotes of this season and I found a very jaboticaba like flavour! so this was the known flavour that I was missing on it, and near the skin it is similar to guaviyú, it has of course that myrtaceae flavours you can feel at strawberry guava and other fruits from this family.

One of my 2 bearing sete capotes plants stopped fruiting (60cm tall) but the other (3m tall) is still flowering and fruiting, so the season may extend for 3 months or more.

Adding psidium australe

Hi, this one was a surprise: I thought it would ripe later, but yesterday I found a fruit in the floor, so it was ripe and very good taste, maybe a mix of guava and strawberry guava, very good, no worms.

Frost resistance: -5º C or more. Hardy to drought too, but it prefers good watering.

(I have just 10 seeds for now)
