The plant doesn't look like my pitomba. Do you have those fruit now? How is the taste?
Once again put me on the list for those seeds when you have them

Hi! a friend from Misiones has it, I will receive some fruits and seeds in some days... so maybe I can taste them too, but he said they are very sweet (almost not acid) and best than the normal cherry of the rio grande.

If so, I will sell some seeds the next week

cheers!

 taste is very good but not like Cherry of the rio grande (and not a cherry taste), to me this is another species; it tastes more like apricot but with tones of mango, orange, pitanga and uvaia.
