Hola aquí en Argentina hay un gran apagón y no puedo responderte en inglés en este momento porque me tomaría mucho tiempo pero te agradezco por haber sacado las fotos y espero que puedas Traducir esto con Google Translator en cuanto lo baja y estoy seguro de que es Eugenia myrcianthes en cuanto al jaboticaba de posadas los frutos son más grandes y son muy dulces son más grandes que los de Samara pero la verdad es que las hojas son bastantes parecidas a las de sabara y en cuanto a que tus pequeñas plantitas soporten 38 grados centígrados en pleno sol me parece algo increíble Si las hubiera puesto a esa temperatura de tan chicas aquí hubiera muerto voy a ver si más tarde podría responderte en inglés lamentó que se haya muerto algunas plantas y en cuanto a la germinación de la guabiroba Es normal que sea bastante difícil porque todavía no ha germinado para mí por lo menos y la persona que es dueña de un árbol grande en misiones dice que lo mejor es enterrar los frutos con lo cual quizás la próxima vez voy a vender los frutos enteros si es que alguien se anima a tomar el riesgo de recibir frutos enteros en su país

Jaboticaba de Campo Ramón cake!

I will send many packages by Friday 14

Madre mia! Tremenda coleccion!  :o

PM send

Gracias por tu valoración Felipe! es un orgullo para mí poder disponer de todas estas especies para uds., cultivo unas 150 especies actualmente y es todo un trabajo, pero rinde sus frutos y lo disfruto un montón

Yesterday I sent 3 packages, I have stock now

I highly do not recommend Natal plum

Hum, Why not? Is not a bad fruit when is fully mature and has a pollinator

I have very few fruits now, will be ripe in 1 or 2 weeks

Annona cf. sylvatica seeds are ready to send now!

Today I will be sending some packages of these very rare tasty Psidiums!

I have stock of the very rare arazá banana-limón too, Psidium sp.

I sent 5 packages in the last week, I have stock now

New araticú seeds for sale!

Annona cf. sylvatica

* Araticú Native from Misiones, it can fruit in subtropical and temperate climates, frost hardy to -5º or -6ºC. Sweet pulp.

5   seeds USD 16
10 seeds USD 30
20 seeds USD 58
40 seeds USD 110

New Psidium sp. for sale!

* Arazá banana-limón Very rare. Unknown origin, precocious fruit, begins to produce at 2 years old in pot, late production (end of autumn). Very good flavor, reminiscent of a mixture between banana, pear, lemon and guava, the skin is flavorful and crispy. Small seeds that do not bother the palate. It may be similar to the arazá-johvy, but we can not confirm that it is Psidium australe or another Psidium exactly. We think it could be Central American, but we can not affirm it either; the new shoots of leaves are brownish, which can mean that it resists frosts of between -3 to -6ºC. Limited stock.

5 seeds USD   8
10 seeds USD 15
20 seeds USD 28
40 seeds USD 54

Ou of stock on Guabiroba (C. xanthocarpa) and Guaporetí (Plinia rivularis)

i'm interested in the orange COTRG. However, how old are the seeds?  How's the viability of the discounted ones?  That's my only concern.

Hi, they are perfectly preserved on wet vermiculite at 4 to 6ºC, so they are viable for 6 more months ahead. That's the way the scientist here at Argentina (Facultad de Ciencias Forestales UNAM) use to preserve this kind of seeds.

I grow them all

I am harvesting Cuban tropical guava


-Early bearing guabijú (Myrcianthes pungens)
(S) $5 (M) $8 (L) $11
Minimun order: 2 scions

-Mato (Myrcianthes cisplatensis)
(S) $5 (M) $8 (L) $11
Minimun order: 2 scions

Today I sent 7 packages

Sow in a good moist soil and wait 20 to 90 days for them to sprout (64ºF to 86ºF, 18ºC to 30ºC), in the shade; no summer sun when small, good water if possible (rain, acid), or without chlorine; use acid soil with sphagnum moss or river peat with nice forest leaves or so, garden soil, something that drains well like perlite or vermiculite, some organic matter ... I would later add manure, not when I sow. Never let it dry.

For myrcianthes, araticú, biribá, jaboticabas, eugenias, campomanesias, psidium, etc. (rainforest species):
Be very careful with the direct sun in summer or when it is very hot, get accustomed to the shade and never lack water. They could take full sun when taller than 2 feet or 60cm or so, before that, use morning sun or half shade (not too hot from the afternoon heat). Psidium and Campomanesias would support more sun, but take care: if they dont like your soil and/or dont have enought watering, they will suffer with more sun.

Chañar is from dry to humid climate (It grows in grassland where it has no trees above it and can live isolated.), it can live with 700mm to 1500mm of anual rain. I dont have much experience sprouting them but I remember they can take 1 month or more. They can take more sun than the others. Some people say “most of fabaceae family plant seeds need soaking in warm water for 12-24 hours. The germinating time will be shorter with this method.”
