Campomanesia schlechtendaliana
« on: February 12, 2018, 05:57:23 PM »
Got a chance to taste these fruits yesterday.  About 1 inch across in diameter.  Mix of pear/nectarine/peach taste?  At least that's from my perspective.  Nice refreshing taste.  The tree was about 10 ft tall and maybe 20 years old?  Nice foliage.  Was told that fruited after 6 years.

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!

Hi

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.

Are these fruits from Frankes nursery?

Few know that chamba was actually the inspiration behind British anarchist rock band Chumbawamba. Good harvest song.

wtf? chamba is almost unknown outside its region (Colombia, ¿some parts of Brazil?)

So, how could it be possible? it would be an amazing history... do you have some link or more references?
