Has anybody tried growing this in Florida?  How does it compare to regular abiu?

Hi Mike,
I hear they are more cold tolerant, than Abiu and tastes like condensed milk...top notch fruit and hard to find 8)

''The abiurana  is resistant to drought and falling temperatures to -4°C (25°F), while the abiu does not resist the frost with temperatures below 0°C (32°)''
Time is like a river.

Yeah that's what caught my eye as well a fruit that is similar to abiu but cold hardy to 25, that sounds like a great fruit to grow in Florida.  If you hear of any seed sources please let me know. ;)

Here's a vid with Helton Josué, where he gives a tour of the farm, with Abiurana, close to the end...very inspirational :) Enjoy Folks :)

Helton's a real good guy, and it's amazing all the work he's doing. We've been exchanging seeds for quite some time and he sends real good quality seeds.

I have a few abiurana seedlings. They are more or less four years old and approximately five  (5) to six (6) feet tall.  I plan to plant a couple of them in the ground. I may trade or sell at least one tree to a Florida collector willing to pick up the tree in Fort Myers.
When I saw the video, it reminded me of being inside that nursery and walking all over Helton's property.  It was worth the effort to visit one of the biggest collections of rare fruits in Brasil.  Meeting Helton and his wife and having lunch with them was ice on the cake!

DurioLover,

Helton Josué, doesn't talk much about the fruit. 

''Durante a visita o nosso anfitrião, dá uma paradinha em baixo da Abuirana, e se delícia com o fruto, da Mata Atlântica e Cerrado.  Para ele, o fruto tem um sabor bem peculiar...leite condensado.''

''During the visit our host, gives a quick stop beneath the Abuirana, and delights himself with the fruit, native to the Atlantic Forest and Cerrado region. For him, the fruit has a very peculiar flavor...condensed milk.''

Does anyone know how long they take fruit from seed and their tolerance to alkalinity?

Does he have a list to order from? Can't really understand his site. Wish I would have found it before getting divorced from my portuguese wife

Thanks. Anyone want to do a group order? I'd like to grab some of the abiurana but the minimum order is 5 types of seed.

Hi

Which species are you looking for?

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

I have the same fruit tree. Pretty sure that Ken has misidentified it as Pouteria bullata. It's actually a type of Pouteria torta.
