Geoffroea striata and Campomanesia guazumifolia
« on: February 06, 2012, 05:25:37 AM »
Anyone growing either of these, or have any information on them?  I have a friend in Argentina that just sent me seeds of these plus some I know a little more about, like Myrcianthes pungens, Eugenia pyriformis, Eugenia speciosa.  Comments on any are welcome, thanks.

Hi,

I have Campomanesia guazumifolia.
The leaves are quite striking. Mine has bloomed but has yet to set fruit.
I find it easy to grow. It's not bothered by a little cold, taking close to freezing without an itch.

According to e-jardim.com, a Brazilian site, the fruits are tasty.

There was just another thread about Myrcianthens pungens. Do a search on the site. It's supposed to be very nice tasting. E. pyriformis there is a lot of variation, some very tart, others sweet and tart.
