Hi,

I went to my friend's field and I can confirm we will have some more guabijú in 1 week or so. We are in the middle of a drought so fruits are small this year, but this variety of guaviyú is interesting because it bears fruits at 4 years old.

Hi, guaviyú is sweet, 24º Brix when overripe, 20º Brix normal ripeness; no acid. A flavour that I can not compare to other fruits... it was the favourite fruit of Anestor Mezzomo (he tasted something like 930 fruits, so it is not bad).

In any doubt, just ask me

Regards

eugenia repanda is ripening faster, the first harvest should be in 2 weeks or less, and then another big harvest.

photos from today:













Prices:

black Eugenia Repanda (harvesting late feb, then later on march and april) (discount):
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.
