You are welcome, I dont know if you have parents in Brazil or so, but it would be interesting if someone of this forum can eat this icecream and report

I've had this plant, araca-una, fruiting for a couple years. It is quite good if picked totally ripe, otherwise too acid and bitter. Fruit looks a lot like red cattleya guava, just darker and with bigger seeds.

Good to know it Oscar! quite good :D
it seems to fruit at the same time as strawberry guava, maybe it can cross. The sad part is that for sure it will like it a lot to the fruit fly ...

Don't know if fruit flies like this species as much as strawberry guava. I will check that soon and report back.

Marlierea sp.

Marlierea - Small, subtropical or tropical tree related to the guava. Fruits are strawberry guava sized, dark purple in color, with white flesh having a mild, acidic grape or jaboticaba-like flavor. Quality is excellent. It is not known which species this fruit is. Can be container grown. Limited quantities, one pack per order please. #601

The above was the text they used on the site, as found in the Internet Archive snapshot taken in 2005, in the link below.

"... white flesh having a mild, acidic grape or jaboticaba-like flavor. Quality is excellent..."


I agree 100% with those words. It smells to guava+pomelo, very nice, and flavor is excelent if properly ripe. 16º Brix

Mines are pear shaped and the seeds were from USA, 5 years ago (I cant believe it was so far in time!).

Photos of our fruits and plants:






It bears profusely like a strawberry guava, but I prefer its taste.
