Is this one going to take 20 years to fruit from seed?
Cultivar?  Specific attributes?

I have heard that there is plinia coronata var.restinga(only 5-8 years) and some others that can take up to 20 years.

I've heard the coronatas that make large fruit like 'Olho de boi' take a long time (15+ years) to make fruit.  The fruits pictured don't look like it's the large variety.

Not sure on variety. Very good taste though.

Do you have to clean the membrane around seed to germinate?

This species for known described only in the 70s from cultivation, closely related to sabara and supposedly reaching only 2 to 4m high sure seems to have lots of varieties. Sabara can sometimes have a little crown. Mt restinga is slow and I can see won't be rushing to fruit and I have a small olho de boi which is slow also. Considering the basis of how this species was described it makes me wonder how people are identifying coronata.

Generic names always cause confusion.  In Brazil, the same Plinia species can have many different names from region to region.
