I'm riding an irrigation system here in southeastern Brazil, I have 1500 mm of rainfall a year, but my winter is dry, cold and windy, dehydrated plants, I want to use drip, which flow would you recommend me for each Score?

I'm seeing drippers of 4 and 10 liters per hour, is that enough?

I do not use mulchi because I have many snakes and they love to stay under the mulchi

Thank you!

For me it is difficult to evaluate the photo of the site, I was on an expedition and we found Pouteria Bullata, it has wavy leaves, well marked, brown flowers, rust color, the fruit darkens quickly, the pulp is a bit dry with large seed, a light taste of milk and sugar.

By the photo I think it is a Regular Pouteria Torta, but as I said, ABIURANA is a generic name here in Brazil, several pouterias we use this name, Guapeva, Guapeba, Bapeba, Bapeva ... all this generates doubts giant!

I'm just saying this to friend, do not buy one kind and get another!

Oh, interesting.  I am hoping for the Abiurana that is slightly more cold tolerant than Abiu, as described here:

Is that what you have?

If Helton has it correctly labeled as bullata, then probably mine is different, as i think it is torta. But if Nelesedulis is correct, then bullata is not very good tasting, and the one i have is quite good. Don't know about its cold tolerance.

Which species are you looking for?

Abiurana is a generic name, many species for similar but very different fruits!

Reviving this old thread, is anyone still growing abiurana or does anyone know of a source of seeds?  Thanks!

Another species that has bigger fruits and very good is the Campomanesia Laurifolia, I think the fruit is about 4 cm in diameter or larger, but it takes a lot to fruition, the flavor is sweet and refreshing. Already a common tree in my region today is more rare.

Pallilo is also very good for making juice and eating, there are other good Gabirobas (Campomanesia for you foreigners), but many are without identification and there is a huge variability among the species, huge variation between the sizes of trees and fruits, existing trees from 10 m to 40 cm shrubs. I usually pretend that gabiroba is the fruit of a child from the countryside, when we are children we love gabirobas and jabuticabas, then we grow into adults and few people without them.

Hi, congrats!!! Campomanesia is one if my favourites genous. The leaves are similar to c. lineatifolia, chamba, and the fruit obviously is similar to many campomanesias, but it remembers me sete capotes specially, c. guazumifolia. This last one tastes like an orange but with sand apple texture to me, and when it is overripe it tastes like jaboticaba. But, yes, you can say it tastes a bit like pear, very nice.

I dont have schlechtendaliana, is it too tropical? I grow guazumifolia, lineatifolia and xanthocarpa.

It is growing well here in Hawaii.

I notice it  gets tastier if I let it get soft on table.  Much better than i expected.  Wish it was bigger fruit!

Yes, there are bigger campomanesia fruits, chamba is one of those

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Lychee grafted onto Longan?
« on: February 11, 2018, 06:42:20 PM »

Great experience.

I would like information and the reverse is possible?

I have adult lychee trees, but eventually, they suffer attack from the erinose mite, I wanted to use the adult and strong lychee trees to graft longans is this possible?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Bignay: flowering and fruiting
« on: February 07, 2018, 07:04:27 AM »

Hello Oscar,

I have some trees loaded with immature fruits now, a doubt how to consume?

They are a little sour, but I like the taste, they remind me of the taste of Gondo, the problem is that the trees are planted near other delicacies here like longans and cambuca, so even if I strive to eat the bignay, the eyes always they are to another side!

I think about making a kind of wine or jelly with and are they possible?

Have fruiting trees. They usually fruit in summer. The fruiting time is rather short, a few weeks, but can have second flowering season. The viability of fruits is very short, even in the fridge. I've never found the flowers to smell bad, but haven't tried smelling them close up. It's better to have more than one tree, especially inside a greenhouse.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Marimari aka cassia leiandra
« on: February 06, 2018, 11:20:17 AM »

I wonder if you are talking about the same Amazonian Marimari, I believe that they are talking about some species of Acacia, many people confuse the species, even in the Amazon it is rare that you find the correct source of this specie


This idea generates conflict of ideas, I do not think we need to send seeds abroad to maintain our biodiversity, we ourselves have competence for this and we are already doing it here in Brazil. I agree to send as a business, just to publicize, disclose the species ultimately helps preserve. As foreigners speak, we Brazilians are destroying the world, as if they had not cleared their forests before us!

Unfortunately deforestation exists worldwide, is a disease, this in Brazil, the rest of the Amazon, Asia, Africa, etc., I would like to know if you in Vietnam are sending seeds of its great biodiversity, for us Brazilians preserve? While your forest turns to immense coffee plantations in Conilon? I've never heard anything about Vietnamite seeds being donated or sold to maintain biodiversity.

Seeds and tropical plants are a profitable business, they are sources of medicines, food, phytotherapics, woods, etc. I do not believe in these good intentions of preservation, but as I said at the beginning, it's just my opinion and no reason for conflict!

I will stop the posts so as not to mess up the page of the seller, which in advance I apologize for posting on your page!

What a mess the Brasilin post!!!

By the way, I neither receive any answer from Dreamfrutas about my seeds!

Is he still alive here?




Good question about the date of the post.

Brazilian post offices have been terribly slow and confused since November, they are implementing new systems and working with a small staff of staff.

Even internal orders that took two useful, to be delivered are taking up to five days.

So the ideal is to follow the tracking and see how they are following the packages.

Giampaolo and Sytanta

I'm not saying anything about the seller, I'm just saying that since November the post office in Brazil is undergoing a series of operational and structural changes, frankly, I do not believe it improves anything, today Brazil is impregnated with idiot political ideologies, both left and right, in fact with the growing nationalism that we are seeing here, I even fear that in the near future, they will not even let seeds of the country leave, the famous policies of national security, protection of biodiversity and other crap .. .

anybody else receive seeds yet?
When did you order?

Hello kar1ma3

Usually when you give the wrong address to the sender, mail is not usually received.

Evidence follows that their seeds were sent and returned to Brazil by incorrect mailing.

I live in a distant region with precarious internet access, my radio reception equipment was damaged by lightning on Christmas night, I stayed almost 30 days without internet, but I told you before about what to do with the seeds.

I am willing to resend you new species, please solve this via pm!

Attached are photos of your envelope, AWB, and labels confirming incorrect mailing


Ultra rare seeds that you will never receive??   :D
I have never received mine from him in the past  :'(
Lost over $100 and he stopped responding  8)

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: E. patrisii - what's the scoop?
« on: January 24, 2018, 07:09:17 AM »
Hello Freinds.

Just updating the post about Eugenia Patrisii, I now have lots of fruits, and I made a delicious jelly with my Ubaias, the two varieties have now fruited.



Hello Friends.

Young seedlings, (Plinia Peruviana) as we are in summer in Brazil, high temperature and humidity germination is brutally fast!

Very beautiful leaves.

Hello Ondrej

Beautiful seedlings, I hope they grow well there in their orchard, Eugenia Sp, is an excellent fruit, very good flavor, better than Cereja do Rio Grande in my opinion.

About Spondia, I planted a seed from the lot I sent you and it germinated in early January.

Spondias take up to 1 year to germinate, you can speed up this germination by placing the seed in a zip lock bag with moist moss and storing it inside a closed box, they will germinate much more quickly.

I wish success to your plants, then let me know how the other buyers left with the seeds



Seeds from the group order:
Eugenias of Alexander's seeds are already growing.  :)
Spondias dulcis does not germinate yet.
Myrciarias I did not buy.

Hello oscar

Between 2.4 and 3 cm, I think if you cultivate the species, there may be an increase in the amount of pulp. The taste is very good, can be a good species for cultivation.

Yes Sytanta,the fruit is very beautiful and has great flavor, I will try to cultivate to verify if the qualities of the fruit improve.

Soon I must confirm the ID of another 2 or 3 types of wild Plinias !,

Work goes on!

Hello everyone.

Beginning the year with the presentation of a very rare wild plinia of Brazil. Plinia Peruviana, fruits collected at an altitude of 700 m, purple fruits, sides, with creases in the bark that remind me of the cambuca, caulifloros, lightly beige pulp, very sweet, containing one or two seeds inside, similar to regular jabuticabas.

I am dedicating myself to the collection of wild species of plinias and myrciarias, the intention is to preserve these species and verify the conditions of cultivation.

« on: January 04, 2018, 03:43:05 PM »

Yes, they can ship by Jadlog or another carrier, there are many nurseries that have these varieties and already grafted.

I only cultivate Rama Forte, the others I did not invest in seedlings.

Boa sorte!

I'll give it a try.  Thanks Alexandre for the lead in SP.  Do they do mail orders to send to Santa Catarina?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Grafting persimmon question.
« on: January 04, 2018, 03:07:57 PM »

I suggest you look for nurseries in São Paulo, they have many varieties of persimmon.

Look with Edilson Giacon from Viveiro Cipreste.

If nobody has tried this, I will give it a shot and see if it works.  Does anyone know where I can get scions of good cultivars of persimmons?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Is it Bakuri or not..
« on: December 06, 2017, 04:56:18 PM »

Just dig up the seed a little bit, if it is the true Bacuri it will be large, almost the size of a chicken egg.

These leaves do not look like true Bacuri leaves, they resemble leaves of some other garcinia.

Another factor is to remember how long it took for germination, Bacuri takes up to 3 years to germinate the seeds.

there are methods to germinate faster, but that's another story!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Deformed New Leaves on Young Jabuticaba
« on: November 07, 2017, 06:14:10 AM »

Probably excess phosphorus in the substrate, but do not worry, do not kill the plant, you can leave the seedling in the shade to acclimate better, leaving only a few hours of sun a day.

Yesterday I did fertilization with phosphorus in my jabuticabas and some may soon have leaves as well.

Another rarer cause here is mite attack, but it also does not cause much damage to the plant.

Good farming!

Eugenia Cereja, Here i have fruits now.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: pouteria torta
« on: November 03, 2017, 02:26:30 PM »

One tree fruits

Is pouteria torta need seperate male female for fruiting?


Yes, I would also like to know, it is a tree in critical danger of extinction, will make a port in the place where we collect, then it may be that in a few years it adds up!

Very nice trees Alexandre! Would love to know about other members' process on this "Melanopsidium nigrum Colla".


Updating information about this species last year I planted seeds and made some seedlings and at 18 months they already defined fruits, and really are male (white and grouped flowers) and female (yellow flowers).

I believe to be an ideal Rubiacea for pots and small spaces.

The seeds that I sent in August have already sprouted here on the farm, please update me on the germination, who bought my seeds Obviously.

Thank you
