Back when I couldn't reply  I wanted to (not going to reply on a tablit not easy)

anyways Pretty neat a purple avocado
Your Physalis  we call Chinese lantern (what we have around)
 (or the native ones always hear ground cherry pretty good tasting)

you know I'd love to share some of our native types with you
not sure of some of the things they can be pretty aggressive,
 and wouldn't want to make invasive plants grow
I fight these, and wouldn't want to put people countries through it.

(you know they bred bananas watermelons to be sterile (or like mule)
it is natural not GMO (diploid (2 chromosome) crossed with a tetraploid (4)
makes uneven chromosome (3 triploid) sterile offspring)
 I'd like to do that so I could share care free.
 (with a passionate person like yourself)

Here We fight thickets European buckthorn Rhamnus (nice red wood Every where)
 Japanese Honey suckle lonicera (every where , Garlic mustard everywhere (roots are good)

https://www2.palomar.edu/users/warmstrong/hybrids1.htm
(I hope not to change the subject here, but save people some time that may be interested in the Idea)

maybe you know something that wouldn't be invasive
I read Osage orange is bad there If you could you could graft Che onto it
 (and they are seedless (female do not plant male)
 I've ate it like a watermelon flavor at jerry Lehmans farm)
Do you have any near by Osage orange or also known as
 ( brain fruit ) hedge apple (iron wood )

I do not think )dogwood species) Cornlelian cherry is bad there
(I think I saw it on a European site)
or Mexican Hawthorns are cool too (regardless of flavor reports here)
 boil add sugar it's like apple juice with Vanilla added can be grown zone 5 I believe
No sugar added  it taste of nothing)
(I make thick, and dilute as I use, and make a lot to store in small space.)

That you could harvest in winter that makes it useful
(although the large fruited hawthorn I believe is it was in Chicago (Our climate wouldn't allow.)

I could get some Lemon Quince (soft ball sized ) seeds (I know quince isn't Invasive there)
I do not know of the actual name, just what it tasted like
when I make tea (by drying fruit ) or fresh) exactly like lemonade .

(the interesting things I am thinking of are even invasive here , and they are native wild plants
So wouldn't want to send may take over yard or country (good for spices though, and fruit.)

(you seem to make preserves , and I think That's cool of you do you ever try to the wild hawthorns
I wouldn't use plastic to make wine anymore , but I suppose if your going to drink in a short time
(I didn't want to sanitize , and still got 40 gallons of wine aged in plastic Gatorade
 PETE bottles (not PET bottles) I wont drink, because of shortness of breath )

Sea walnut I am going to look into that dr Szymanovsky kiwi

How do the aronia taste I like the bitterness (drink a lot of black tea my favorite bitter)
I think I am going to try to soak some in alcohol to balance it
What does the Gamboa quince taste like ?
Not many grapes happen to grow any wine grapes ?

Nice Orchids, and Hedychium gardnerianum flowers

What does Cucumis anguria (Maxixe) and
Cyclanthera pedata (Maxixe do Reino, Pepino do Vento)
taste like (I know ones a cucumber family )

Do you use the linden flower for tea
(for mulberry I place tarp unshaken tree (with rope) for harvest)
maby that would work for linden (or drop on there own which I've seen)

What is Araticum I can look it up, but what does it taste like Mostly what I want to know.

That (rose apple) syzygium samarangense var. Tubtim Chandra sounds good
Whats the difference between them syzygium samarangense

Very Nice yard I think I'd buy that house on the spot , and put
 (bitter Beer hops, and wine grapes  on it too. :)

And this are two seed seedling avocados from a very rare variety that one friend from Belize sent me. This avocado have purple fesh!  :o

Hi! Thank you very much for your long reply!
I have both table and wine grapes and i eat both. I like aronia berry bitterness too... my che tree is grafted. I think i will have ripe fruit this year... gamboa have a bigger fruit and less tart. It can be eaten out of hand.
Maxixe is more tart than maxixe do reino that is very neutral flavour. This one is very very effective to get lower cholesterol... it's a great veggy.
Yes we use linden flower tea... and it's a great ornamental tree too...
Araticum is one anonacea from Brazilian cerrado... never died but don't grow much... and rose apple it's from this year but it's growing well... lets see how she will pass winter.

 ;)

Hello luis, it could be anything but maybe a balbinsiana variegated.  I have one and the variegation loos the same.  Much thinner striping than AEAE.  It could be something else though, probably need to see a photo of the fruit to ID it.
