WTB Eugenia Species
« on: March 28, 2022, 02:05:35 PM »
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.

Parkeriana has the most beautiful leaves, Selloi grows the fastest, and Itaguahiensis is the best for pot growing.

Same, I have a ton of eugenia seedlings but only a couple have flowered or fruited yet.  Expecting a few more to fruit this year.

Uniflora/Surinam Cherry is really common and excellent
Pitangatuba is pretty common also but not as good in my opinion (too stringy)

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.

I'd love to hear how E. polyclada, E. domingensis and E. monticola taste.

As far as selling the E. ligustrina seeds in a hurry, you might check out the Facebook group Rare Fruit Sales & Auctions, or maybe check out the Figbid site--they have stuff other than figs.

I'd love to buy some E. polyclada seeds if you still have some, and E. domingensis seeds when you get them. Are you going to make a waiting list or just post when you have them?

My E.polyclada produces about 5-20 fruit per crop at 5 feet tall plant. Not sure how many times a year but i think at least 2? It fruits at the same time as E.ligustrina. But this fruit tastes way better and it's way way rare. It's also harder to germinate.

I have 2 fruits and 1 deformed fruit..and about 4 fruits forming in the plant with several like 20 flowers or so. So  i think the few of these should be put on a bid for someone who wants to save species from extinction

My E.Ligustrina produces over 1500 fruits per crop at 3-4 feet tall plant.

just so u get the idea

I will just post them for sale when they are available and i am trying to find where to put these E.polyclada to bid. Maybe Etsy. Because there's only a few of these.

But for others i may get 100 or more.

Which one??
E.ligustrina is like a miniature eugenia, good for containers and bonsai.. grows up to 3-4 feet tall

E.Polyclada in the wild grows sideways like from low branches to the sides but mine have been pruned by a gardener so it grew up and is now also growing sideways. It's about 5 feet tall.

E.Monticola is a shrub to a short tree

E.Domingensis can become a medium to large tree.
