Which Tocoyena is this?
« on: February 06, 2021, 03:00:51 AM »


A few years ago I got some seeds of Tocoyena from Brazil. It became a handsome small shrub having white elongated tube flower bunches every so often. I just noticed a couple of fruit have set.
Through the fog of the past I think it was either T.formosa or T.bullata but I don't know.If a Brazilian south coast fruit hotshot could let me know what it really is and if it is good to eat I would appreciate it.

It appears the restinga species T.bullata is the most likely so I am running with that.

Here is a photo of Tocoyena bullata for reference. The plant was from a friend. Id love to find more seeds, if anyone knows a good source.
