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  :)
Já, ég er að rækta suðrænar plöntur á Íslandi. Nei, ég er ekki klikkuð. Jæja, kannski...

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.
