Garcinia Acuminata and Garcinia Madruno are both called Charichuelo.
Currently, Rheedia is in the genus Garcinia.
Madruno is circular in shape, and Acuminata is elongated.

That Madruno is clearly not circular , though I have eaten circular ones. The little spikey’s on the skin are a good identify er, can’t think of any other garcinia’s that have that.

The fuzzy skin/mountain madrono is sweeter than G.madruno which apparently can be smooth or fuzzy also and may be called charichuelo. A couple of other species around Ecuador get called madrona as well. Common names can be confusing and with Garcinias so can their Latin names.

My Guyana Mouriri which I assume is M.guinensis is flowering at the same time my second Mouriri which was from Jim West is flowering for the first time also. They look identical and don't seem to be setting fruit. Did your achachairus survive?

Can't find much info on Caryocar Glabrum.
Do you know if it is self pollinating? Years to start to fruit?
Any chance it can take light frosts?

Hi,

Yes, self pollinating. Should fruit after 6-7 years. Not sure about frost, probably not but who knows.

Sorry, Richard.
I just got an answer from Richard.
I'm Korean, so I didn't understand the internet situation in other countries.
In korea, wherever we go, we can be online and free wifi is available in almost all public places as well as by subway.
I now know Richard is a reliable person.

May I ask what's the deference in taste between "Redondo" cultivar and other Capuassu vars?

Redondo is the best producer, best seeds/pulp ratio. Taste is somewhat similar to other cultivars but i found it a bit more acid and perfect for juice or dessert.
