I will have a very rare Campomanesia sp. from Misiones in a few days, "Guavirá-johvy", leaves similar to C. xanthocarpa, different look and smell of crushed leaves, fruit is similar to C. malifolia (maybe it is C. malifolia), with tiny hairs on the fruit, green colour...

When the fruit is unripe is somewhat "blue" green... very sweet and delicious.

Maybe by friday 22.

I will give more details later.

We will have to wait 3 weeks for Guavirá-johvy, but Guaporetí and ubajay should be here sooner.

Another good surprise! this time from Córdoba, Argentina.

I am enjoying mistol, which have a mixed flavor between chocolate and raisins. Ziziphus mistol is another excellent fruit native to the grasslands of Argentina. Frost hardy to -7ºC or so. Its fruits can be tasted raw or we can do the mistol coffee  (by means of a process by which the seeds are discarded in a mill and the pulp of the fruits previously dried in the sun are grounded).



Name                                                5 seeds 10 seeds 20 seeds 40 seeds 80 seeds  100 seeds
Mistol from Cordoba   Zizipus mistol   16          30         58            110          190         230

In 7 to 10 days I will have new native species of jaboticaba.

1) Posadas-Lujan: the mother tree was at Posadas, Misiones, but the seed was planted 20 years ago at Luján, Buenos Aires.



2) Mother tree from Garupá, Misiones, planted now at Concordia, Entre ríos, didnt tasted it yet but it looks good:


I will give more details in a week or so, cheers
