Seeds arrived today.  Customs never even sent me a letter; that was nice of them  ;)  Since these aren't ultratropicals, the time it took them to get here shouldn't be a problem; the P. guineense and P. guineense x grandifolium are in germination containers, and the A. araucana are soaking in water for a day with plans to plant directly in sandy / gravely soil.  If you have any specific tips you feel like sending my way, just let me know  :)

I received on Monday the seeds of Orange Rio Grande and some of Plinia. Best of all, it took only 12 days. They were sent on October 25 and arrived on Monday, November 5, a pretty fast shipment.
Thanks Marcos.

Thanks for reporting! Now I have the jaboticaba do cerrado fruits on my hands (ultra rare myrciaria sp. from Paraguay and Mato Grosso do Sul border), they are tasty with a multifruit soft flavour (peach, banana, orange, apple, jaboticaba, guaviyu tones), not acid. I have acerola and native jaboticaba too (I tastes and looks similar to Sabará, small leaves) and the rest of the seeds I was waiting for! I will be shipping in the next days/week

NOTE: the collector sent me these seeds telling me that they were from the ultra rare Myrciaria sp. from Paraguay (I have some trees from that species but not fruiting yet!), but in fact the seeds are from Plinia rivularis, a rare but known species.


* Guaporetí (Plinia rivularis) Fruit is sweet and not acid, similar to guabiju in that regard, the dark brown skin is tasty similar to jaboticaba but not acid, and the pulp taste like guabiju and multifruit juice (banana, orange, apple, peach, jaboticaba), it has a personal taste, very good. One seed per fruit, rarely two. Frost resistance: -6º C, very hardy species.

On stock

2 seeds USD 9
5 seeds USD 18
10  seeds USD 32
25  seeds USD 76
50  seeds USD 150
100 seeds USD 280

I am accepting payments now.

I had the opportunity to taste guabiroba in a good state of maturation and I loved its flavor: sweet, almost no acid, particular (when they are overripe they remind me a bit of tropical guava), with a pleasant perfume that reminded uvaia (when there are many fruits together); I recommend avoiding chewing the seeds because they are VERY spicy. I think we'll make delicious ice cream with its pulp!

Selling seeds now.

No. E.luschathiana is different. I Think yellow rio Grande is a subspecies of common Rio Grande cherry.

I sent many packages yesterday and today

About growing Plinias, Campomanesias, Eugenias and Myrciarias from Misiones (Atlantic Forest):

I would just sow them 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. 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). Campomanesias and Psidium would support more sun, but take care.

I hope you can grow them well.

Cheers

Could you explain the difference between Sweet Ubajay (Eugenia myrcianthes) and the new Sweet Ubajaymi (Eugenia aff myrcianthes)? The only thing I could find was that E. pyriformis is sometimes called Ubajay mi, but I think you use uvaia for that species.

Also I got the tracking number from you, but what company is the carrier?

Hi, it is an international mail, the tracking number should work for any mail service worldwide. I sent them by "Correo Argentino", our official state mail post office.

About Ubajaymi, the collector said it is sweeter  and smaller than sweet Ubajay, it is not uvaia.
