New seeds and species, fresh janyuary 2018 harvest, please let me know if you are interested in cocona (solanum sessilimflorum), averrhoa bilimbi, tamarindus indica, dovyalis hebecarpa, physalis peruviana or solanum quitoense and I will put a price for them too.


* black Eugenia Repanda (harvesting now, then later on march and april) (cheaper than 2017):
5 seeds USD 12,
10 seeds USD 20
20 seeds USD 38

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.





* sweet Uvaia (eugenia pyriformis or hybrid x e. lutescens) [second harvest]

Big (4cm diameter), rounded shaped fruits (not so pear shaped, more flattened), juicy and tasty, 12º Brix. It flowers 2 times: spring and summer. The perfume of the flowers is one of the best I know (along with citrus flowers and sete capotes), and it is my favourite. Maybe it is eugenia lutescens, as the fruits are sweet and not pyriformis (pear shaped)





3 seeds --> USD 8
5 seeds --> USD 12
10 seeds --> USD 22
20 seeds --> USD 42
25 seeds --> USD 50

Now I have something like 35 seeds and then some more in one month or so.

Natal Plum:

10 seeds USD 6


Small shrub or bush, south african origin. Produces medium sized, fleshy red fruits that can be eaten fresh or used in preserves. Beautiful white fragrant flowers are showy and ornamental. Commonly used as a hedge plant. Tolerant to salt, frost resistance -5ºC or -6ºC.

* Cedar Bay cherries (eugenia reinwardtiana), Australian fruit, that bears in about 2 years from seed. A very tasty berry (similar to plums).

Yes, right, I dont know if it produces in very tropical climates, but there are a lot of trees at Brasil and they bear fruit.

The first uvaias are ripening, but the other ones will take 2 or 3 weeks, and later there will be even another harvest in 1 month or so

I can say that the majority huertasurbanas seeds are very good and grow very well for me when I bought last year.

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.

It seems that in 1 month or so we will have hundreds of uvaias, this species really needs water to hold its fruits!!!

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.

* borojoa patinoi very rare tropical fruit from Colombia, 24 seeds stock

6 seeds: 8 USD
12 seeds: 14 USD
24 seeds: 24 USD






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...
