Very rare and delicious myrtaceae.  large fruit with excellent seed to pulp ratio. Extremely juicy fruit. Like a faucet of juice when bitten. Hardy to at least 25F when sizable. Can fruit from seed in 3 or 4 years. Sweet and frangrant. Comparable to mango and guava but very unique. Extremely abundant in some years the entire ground will be solid yellow. 10 large seeds for 25$

Does anyone know if this species grow true to the seed?
Just read that some people have trees that produce really sour astringent fruit, but some other have trees that produce good fruit.

Are these sour sweet taste like lemon but with a garlic flavor that many report tasting with this species or just sweet?

Thanks,

David

Seeds arrived well cleaned and fresh. Thanks for the extras. Fingers crossed for good germination and favorable fruit characteristics eventually.

I've eaten from this tree and it at first is really juicy and nice, apricot, then WHAM-O intense garlic. If you eat them underripe they are much better. Fully ripe they are a lot of garlic.
