I am tasting "psidium guineense" for the second time after 2 years. I think that the Brazilians call it "araza do campo". The taste was good: acid and sweet, even if the plant is in a pot and receives a few ours of sun, it measures just 30 or 40 cm tall. I was surprised by the good size compared to previous years and that it was sweeter than I remembered. It is a lemony flavor that I would compare with the yellow arazá (p. cattleianum var lucidum) with a perfume similar to the guavas (softer) and it also reminded me of the big arazá (arazá açú) or psidium robustum.

The main advantage of this fruit tree is its precocity: it begins to produce just 1 year and a half after sowing. "This species occurs in the Caatinga biome as a wild fruit that has broad utility and can generate income" (http://www.scielo.br/scielo.php?script=sci_arttext&pid=S2317-15372015000400214)









* Araçá do cacho (psidium guineense), harvest April 2018. Acid and sweet, hardy to -5º C, it start producing at 1 year and 6 months after sowing.

5 seeds: 6 USD
10 seeds: 10 USD
20 seeds: 18 USD
40 seeds: 34 USD
80 seeds: 66 USD

(Araçá de cacho, Araçá do Campo, Araçá de Anta, Araçá da praia e Araçá morango)

The first "Araçá campestre" (psidium australe) just ripened, the others could take 1 to 3 months more... there were just 7 seeds and this is my favourite arazá in terms of taste, similar flavour to psidium robustum. I would say it smells and tastes like pineapple/caramel. Hardy to -5º C or maybe -6º C, it likes irrigation very much but does not tolerate flooding. It bears fruit in 2 to 3 years in pots.

* Araçá campestre (psidium australe var. argenteum or  var. australe), very rare, tastes and smells like pineapple/caramel
7 seeds: USD 15 (SOLD 29 march 2018)
10 seeds:  USD 18 (wait some weeks)
20 seeds:  USD 34 (wait some months)

Changing arazá do cacho to arazá morango because our variety really smells like strawberries

" ARAÇÁ vem das palavras do tupi Guarani: ARÁ-Fruta + eçá - olhos, referindo-se as sépalas persistentes que parecem formarem cílios. Também recebe os nomes: Araçá de cacho, Araçá do Campo, Araçá de Anta, Araçá da praia e Araçá morango (porque uma variedade tem o sabor de morango)."

Wow, those are very good news. Keep in mind you should not over water guaviyú in this stage.

The trees had a very long season this year: resisted a hard drought and then fruited till now (they use to do it just by january/february)

I hope your plants grow well, they prefer a bit acid soil (and shade when young.)

Helton at Brazil wrote -1ºC but this another one variety is from Misiones and there can be -5ºC frosts there, so I think they can resist -2ºC at least... also, my biribá at our garden survived to -2ºC

Hi, no, sorry: I sold them all and there are just a few on the trees now. Very nice fruit. The next year I should have many more and probably campomanesia xanthocarpa and campomanesia lineatifolia too!

Hey Dung
I was wondering are you growing the E repanda in full sun?
I have a couple seedling from last year and they were grown in indirect light.
Yours look like they are off to a great start!

Hi Mike,
The position I place the seedlings just have some direct sun in the morning. They are in the shade after 10AM.
