Hi Miguel! it looks indeed like Psidium guineense, or like my hybrid P. guineense x grandifolium; but the seeds of my plant are a bit bigger maybe (2 to 3 mm diameter);

I will get a plant of Psidium firmum in some days, so I hope to take photos and compare leaves

Cheers!

Hi! a friend from Misiones has it, I will receive some fruits and seeds in some days... so maybe I can taste them too, but he said they are very sweet (almost not acid) and best than the normal cherry of the rio grande.

If so, I will sell some seeds the next week

cheers!

Thanks Stevo for the id. I think you are right, it is a vexator.

Hi, it really looks like vexator BUT! at Paraguay? Ciudad del Este? I was there when I was 15 years old, it is a subtropical place... but the blue jaboticaba grows at Venezuela (tropical climate), 3500 kilometers to the north... so, the paraguayan M. vexator trees should belong to a paraguayan collectionist!

Hi, a friend sent me these photos. He bought the trees at Brasil some years ago.

Would it be Plinia jaboticaba, sabará?

Today I ate a perfectly ripe winter harvested arazá grande and it was better than the ones from the summer (no fruit fly damaged); pineapple taste!

19
More seeds: Psidium robustum!

It fell to the ground unripe but it is turning yellow, so I think it will be ripe in 2 days.









The nice thing about it is that it will be no damaged by the fruit fly.

The plant withstood frost of -3º C without so many problems (only some leaves changed color), it is more resistant than P. myrtoides, which lost half of the leaves and suffered burns on the upper branches.

Maybe it could survive to -5ºC
