Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Help identifying a Pouteria

Thank you very much!

The seeds from the fruits on the image were sown about 16 months ago (yes the images are recente), and I obtained from it, 4 seedlings, that took a bit to germinate, but then had developed quite good! Those ones are at my parents place, as I have much more space there, than in my appartment, but next time I visit them I will take some pics.
The biggest one is about 70cm high. I found, in the same conditions, it develops faster than P. Lucuma, and P. Campechiana.

CONGRATS!  THE SEED YOU PLANTED ABOUT  9MONTH AGO GERMINATED!

Sorry for taking so long to answer, but I spent these last days and nights in a healt center, were my wife, comes from delivering my second son, so had no time to do nothing else, but giving attention to both.

About foliage pictures I can do it, but not sure when I will have time to pass by the tree, and shot some pics. Anyway I will try to do that ASAP.

Take pics of foliage!

Sounds tasty!!
I thought it was just a lucuma

Lucuma, definitly not! The tree foliage is very diferente as well as the bark, and the wood is much harder than Lucuma! Also the taste is miles away from Lucuma, and the flesh of the fruit is of a light yellow colour instead of intense yellow/Orange in the Lucuma.

Anyway, thanks for your reply.

The flowers remind me of pouteria sebertii, but the fruit look more like Pouteria macrophylla. Search the forum for them. There are some good pics.

Thank you for your answer!
It was identified as P. sebertii, but searching in Google the fruit of sebertii, seemed to be much smaller than these ones (these ones had about 8 to 10cm, long and 5 to 6 across), however as you said, the flowers really look like the same.

Hi everone,

My name is NÚlio, and I'm from Madeira Island, Portugal.
There's a moment I knew this forum, and from time to time I take a look at it. This time I decided to register, and interact with you guys.
Since I remember we had many fruit trees at my parents home, many of them tropical/subtropical ones, but most of them are very common here, like Avocados, Cherimoyas, Passion fruits, Guavas, Pitangas...
Since I became Hiking guide, I started interessing even more, for botanics, specially fruit trees, and I'm now starting a small collection of tropical fruit trees (hopefully in a few years I will taste something new... lol). I hope to learn more about how to care of my "babies", and maybe share some experience with other members.

NÚlio.
