Could be g parvifolia


Can anyone of these grow in zone 7b-8a?
Some can be container grown and over wintered

I am going to start doing some research in bonsai trees because many mrtyle sp seem to be good candidates

At truly tropical in Delray they sometimes have miracle fruit for sale. Usually open Saturday mornings 9-noon

I'm not a big fan of guavas either but I like the cas guava (Psidium friedrichsthalianum). I've only had them a couple of times but It's a sour fruit (which I love) with a nice tropical flavor. Bit of a grainy texture. I'm growing a few from seed but I like them enough I'm thinking of buying a tree to put in my yard to skip some of the wait.

Myrciaria flouribunda is the scientific name. Also known as rumberry.  They're related to jabos. Small red to dark berries that have a sort of woody flavour. I really enjoy them but I wish they were bigger.

The berries are used to make a guavaberry liquor that is popular in sint marteen. They sell the liquor at total wine too. beautiful landscape tree as well. Not too sure where to find a tree however.

Do miracle fruit benefit from cross pollination? My plant is going through something similar. Last year when I bought it, I brought it home with close to 50 fruits on it. This year I've only gotten 3 fruit as well. I only have the one plant at this time - in partial shade in a 7 gallon pot.

What's the germination rate for seeds?

They have them here in Florida too. They seem to kind of invasive growing up into trees and can spread pretty quick. Apparently the red flesh is  edible but I can't quite remember their name.

I must be a nobody because I enjoy red and black e. Uniflora. My neighbor has a massive hedge that I could eat fruit from all day if he'd let me.

Looks like a good size. Good luck!

Eugenia pitanga (dwarf pitanga) is supposed to be a great container fruit that is supposed to fruit within the first year or so.

Lots of Eugenia's fruit in under 4 years from seed.

This is one that has interested me as well but I've heard it will be challenging in Florida. Did you start from seed or buy the plant? I tried a few seeds last year without any luck

Has anyone fruited this in the continental us? Haven't read too much about them

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Marcotting/Air layering Abiu
« on: August 20, 2018, 09:04:06 AM »
Abiu is a fruit that deserves more recognition! Normally I am not a huge fan of pouteria but these are delicious.

If they are susceptible to wind damage it would make more sense maybe to grow them from seed so they will have a more well established taproot.

Do they need a male and female to fruit? My plant has many flowers again this year but no fruit

I am sure I am not the only one glad to see you back up and running. Best of luck!!
