Very thanks! We had some problems with the shipping (too much time and so on) but I will mail again 2 or 3 mails with seeds that didnt reached the destination yet.

I want to report that all the uvaias actually on the trees are sold, but there should be another harvest in 4 to 6 weeks from now.

We will have pisidium guyanense (not p. guineense!), a very rare unknown psidium, tasty and sweet, in some weeks. Fruits are ripening fast.

I sent some mails

About Guabiyú:

Guabiju needs a bit if light to sprout, maybe they will sprout into the package, but if they doesnt, sow a bit buried into your soil, water but dont drown them... they need an humid soil, dont drown while sprouting... then, when there is a plant, you can water more... their natural habit is near the rivers. In any doubt, just PM me or mail me, thanks.

Alibertia patinoi, commonly known as borojó, is a small (2-5m), dioecious tropical rainforest tree. It is one of the few of the Rubiaceae family that has edible fruit. It grows in the northwest area of Colombia in the Chocó Department and in the Esmeraldas Province of Ecuador, in areas of high humidity and temperature.

Hello. I am curious. Did you grow and fruit Albertia Patinoi aka Borojo in Argentina? How easy is it to grow outside it's native climate range?
Cheers.

Hi, no no, I sow many of them yesterday because I received fresh seeds from a friend at Ecuador. I am selling the rest of them. I think this species would be fine just in the tropics. But I will try to keep them warm into my house by the winter (as I do with biribá, guanabana, jackfruit and others).

I sent 4 mails today, Ukrania, USA, Korea, Australia.

I am harvesting new uvaias now and watching the psidium guyanense and psidium eugeniaefolia getting ripe; for eugenia repanda we should wait till the end of feb. There will be a few natal plum and maybe rollinia sylvatica too and other species (orange tamarillo, many guavas, psidium australe and others).

Cedar bar cherries are still producing.

Marcos, your Guabiju fruited in just four years?! How tall is that tree?
To my knowledge, Guabiju usually fruits only after 7-8 years.

By otherside, I read somewhere that in Uruguay and Argentina exists a var that can fruit when just in 1m tall. Do you know that var, or... is yours that var?

Hi, we grow many trees, they use to flower at 4-5 years old. I have one in my garden into a 30L pot, 2.3m tall and it is maybe 7 years old. I dont know about different varieties, I just grow 2: one from Villa Eliza, Entre Ríos, and other one from Capital, Buenos Aires (seeds from Botanic Garden Carlos Thays). I think that the Villa Eliza one is faster to fruit! At 1m tall, 4 years old it can do it, but I dont know about the other one "velocity" because I bought the trees when 2m tall/6 or 7 years old. I sow many of them and sell them, but we have 2 or 3 planted on my parents house, 2 years old, 70cm tall... so we will see...
