A lot of people don't like glazioviana, so I assumed that this couldn't be worse than that. But all three I imagine are similar in taste.

In fact I think you only need one of each species and there would be adequate cross-pollination among them.

It seems to me that Myrciaria guaquiea  is superior to glazioviana in just about every way. Hardiness, flesh-seed ratio, precociousness.

If they are similar, then why should I bother with a glazioviana? Strigipipes is possibly in the same boat here.

Anyone know if Queen Hayri and Ben's Beaut are dwarfs or full sized?

And if I get seeds from a dwarfing variety, what % of seedlings would revert to normal size?

What do you mean by 'critical temperature'? Is that the point at which a mature tree will die or just when it will really start to suffer/lose leaves and stems?

Imagine the hype when this guy will get hold of pitangatuba.
Translation anyone?

I tasted my first one too this week. The fruiting season must be very long, if they can be in season in opposite hemispheres at the same time. The taste was not memorable, like soap or resin. As for gin, yes there's something there.

Australian finger lime, Davidson's Plum, Paw paw (asimina triloba), Arctic kiwi (actinidia kolomikta), orange kiwi (actinidia polygama).

If there are any eugenia experts on this thread, I'd like advice on the understorey-fruiting ability rank of these three spp.: involucrata, brasiliensis, candolleana.


Hey Adam,
This blonde German girl with the YouTube channel 'Julie's Jungle" has mentioned FFF in a few of her videos... I think she might like you  ::)

Myrciaria glazioviana (quite different to regular jab) is supposed to fruit better in part-shade than full sun. It is said to be very ornamental, doesn't fruit on trunk, likes acidic soil and prunable to shape.

Asimina tribola fruits well in shade but requires moist soil and tree shape may not suit you.

Davidson Plum requires shade until it grows big and then can tolerate a lot of sun. Fruit is very sour (loved by some) but those who don't can make a lot of jam with it. Tall and thin tree, the species davisonia jersyana is shorter than davidsonia pruriens.

Australian finger lime prefers part shade. Most species are however thorny, but the fruits are a real treat with high culinary value.

Edit: I'm all out now. Might do it again next year though.

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Self-fertile cherimoya seeds
« on: November 28, 2015, 08:17:16 PM »
I have seeds of a variety of self-fertile cherimoya that is sold by a fruit nursery in Australia. Freshly harvested. I can't guarantee it will be self-fertile in all regions, but it is a good sign that it requires absolutely no hand pollination in my temperate Australian climate and I have only one tree.

I'd like to trade for seeds of: eugenia selloi (syn. neonitida), eugenia itaguahiensis and eugenia calycina (when in season).

I believe all four of these inga spp. are native to Brazil.

[Edit] Seeds will need to be split open and just the inside part sent to me.

Yes, but out of stock and probably dont deliver to AUS. Anyway feedback hasn't been as positive as elsewhere, so I might forget about it. Black raspberry on the other hand seems very popular so I might look into that.

Has anyone bought seeds of Alibaba?

I've been after Anne Raspberry for so long but I am sceptical of the Chinese seller on Alibaba. Although he has a high feedback rating and plenty of products, they are mostly seeds for which negative feedback can't really be left in time. He is also selling obviously photoshopped things like seeds of blue strawberries, etc.

Sorry, can you rephrase your answer, as I don't comprehend what you are trying to say.

If anyone wants to put it up on eBay or Amazon, I'll buy through that.

Now they should be in season.


Seeking kiwiberry seeds of Aloha Anna, Passion Poppers or Kandy Kiwi

Can pay via Paypal. I need to be sent overseas.

Thank you

*Edit: These varieties are from Kiwi Korners Farm. I've just read that end of September is meant to be end of the season. Unless the fruit are refrigerated. Anyhow, if someone has seeds and wants to help please respond.

Thanks Gunnar.

I read conflicting things about which shoot is the one that is a clone, so I wasn't sure.

Does anyone have a saved version of the file that they could PM me?

Or someone with access tell me what seed have Carrie, Mallika and Po Pyu Kalay?

I am still waiting on permission to view the list.

Could someone tell me what kind of seed Po Pyu Kalay (Lemon Merengue), Carrie and Mallika have?

How true to type are polyembryonic mango seeds?
