Is it E. Brevistyla?

Anyone got these for sale?
Bellamytrees just got a lot of new annonas, like leptopetala, deceptrix, etcÖ

Pitangatuba came quite a while ago, forgot to post it when it came! Shipping was very prompt, took it out when it started getting warm and humid, and it seems to like it. My Tamarillo didnít like it as much and had to bring it back in after it lost a few leaves to wind damageÖ surprised at how fast it began to grow back! Canít wait for some of my first pitangatubas! Thanks again!

Sometimes I think its better to get a new hobby? But I can't leave the plinias as I am the plinia simp!

I'm the same way but with eugenias... the moment I see some new eugenia and the taste report says "sweet", I just have to buy it. I think I have at least 10 different eugenia growing in my house right now (not including extras of just one species), there's just something about how the plants look that makes me want to grow them, the leaves, fruit, and flowers are attractive to me.

6
I think there's been hybrids of soursop and rollinia, but I'm not sure about that.

What became of this? Is it really different from Cornifolia? Any seeds or seedlings being grown out?

If I had to guess, I would guess it's A. Nutans or A. Spinescens.

A. Nutans was sold about 2 months ago on eBay for $200, Spinescens seeds are being sold by seedshuntershop.com right now, but you can also sometimes find seedlings of Spinescens on eBay.

What does "pmd" stand for?

Those look like Cacao.
Pmd = Private Messaged

Do you have a taste report on Psidium Salutare?

Shipping was very prompt, can't wait to get my pitangatuba!

11
Not familiar with this one, is it a type of Pandanus?

It's a duguetia I believe, In the Annonaceae family. Apparently, this duguetia has a good amount of pulp and is one of the more tasty ones out there.

Here's a pretty simple taro pudding recipe, I think it's pretty good. https://www.cambodiarecipe.com/recipe/taro-root-pudding/

It's almost dewberry season here in Texas, I can send you seeds or cuttings if you want, they're a bit too tart for me, though.

14
There's a deflexa tree at the dallas arboretum, it fruits and is pretty big, maybe I'll be able to try it sometime.

Temperate Fruit Buy, Sell, & Trade / WTB rare gaultheria etc.
« on: April 01, 2022, 02:08:11 PM »
Looking to buy rare gaultheria plants/seeds, like G. Dumicola and G. Foressii.
Also trying to find Luma Chequen, Apiculata, and Ugni Myricoides.

16
I see a "pitomba BIG" from another seller for sale, is that same?  "Pitomba BIG - Eugenia Luschnathiana "

Wildlands lists "Common Name / Native Name: Big Pitanga"

not sure if same thing... pitanga is uniflora, right?
The Big Pitomba is a selection of the normal pitomba, and the Big Pitanga is a completely different species.

Guys i have 1600+ Eugenia Ligustrina seeds(inside the fruit)...i am looking forward to sell or bid these...ebay is no longer accepting bids into USA from outside countries. Help me find a deal with these before they go wasted!! if you know a site were i can sell most of these?
there's the link https://tropicalfruitforum.com/index.php?topic=46824.0

i also have very few seeds of Eugenia Polyclada(EXTREMELY rare) which is endemic to the South West of Dominican Republic...from a dry forest of a semi-arid region. It's almost extinct...i had bought these from the botanical park years ago without ID. Now a botanist told me it's E.Polyclada and they had run out of it! so i gave them a seedling. My plant is an adult and it's not a heavy producer. It's 5 feet tall with side growing branches. Produces a fruit from white to orange then orange to red and it falls. It's not very productive but it produces somewhat bigger fruit than say pitanga and it's sweet and tasty.

later i may have Eugenia Domingensis and Eugenia Monticola seeds.

Whatís the growth habit of the plant like, and how big is the fruit?

Casearioides and Florida seem the most interesting, lmk if you have any extras of those

Which of the varieties you have are your favorite? Im still waiting for all mine to flower and fruit for the first time.
Parkeriana has the most beautiful leaves, Selloi grows the fastest, and Itaguahiensis is the best for pot growing.

I am most interested in the Eugenia genus because of them being most favorable in pot culture, right now I have:

Eugenia Repanda
Eugenia Selloi
Eugenia Mattosii
Eugenia Brasiliensis
Eugenia Itaguahiensis
Eugenia Parkeriana

Iím mostly looking for Eugenia sp. that have a good pulp to seed ratio and do well in pots.

22
I have had issues trying to mix even very close species like calycina onto corg. I won't say it's impossible though, there are a variety of reasons why my grafts may have failed.

If I can get my hands on uniflora scions in a few years, when my parkeriana gets large enough to be grafted, Iíll try grafting one on and see if it holds.

23
Wanted to ask this since both E. Parkeriana and E. Pitanga both
have multiple similarities to Uniflora, including leaves and fruits.

See when Flying Fox Fruits gives you a tour of his place and he shows you his dogs, his chickens and things like that...it makes it a more Legit experience...he still will talk about fruit. This is something similar i show rare plants and fruit i grow and i'm hunting but if i walk somewhere then i can show you A PIC OF THE PLACE RELATED to the THE PLANTS OR FRUITS i'm showing :)

I've actually liked how you show little bits of the DR's beaches and such, never been out of the country before but I would definitely like to go to the DR sometime later in my life. Sounds like a great experience

Looking for these two eugenias to add to my collection, feel free to pm me if you have them!  ;D
