Hapa Joe seed drop #1 7PM PST Thurs Nov 10 Preview below
« on: November 10, 2022, 04:12:31 PM »
Good afternoon. My first shipment from my travels has arrived and processed, cleaned, inspected and ready to shipped to their new homes. Seeds will be avaible at 7PM PST at
As a reminder that seeds are always somewhat of a gamble and I cannot guarantee germination, however I have inspected all the seeds and done float tests when appropriate and removed any clearly unviable seeds. This is the cheapest option to get these rare trees. I reserve half the seeds to grow and will offer seedlings in the spring with the appropriate price increase  :)

Chyrsophyllum viride ABIÚ-MIRIM
Translated from Colecionando Frutas by Helton Josue
The fruits are yellow, in soft pulp with a good flavor and can be enjoyed in-natura or in the form of juices.

Eugenia acutata Cambijava-Laranja
Translated from Colecionando Frutas by Helton Josue
 The tree can be cultivated in urban afforestation, in squares and large gardens, and cannot be missed in forest restoration, as its fruits feed bird-fauna. The flowers are beekeeping. The fruits appear at various times of the year and these can be harvested manually when they are yellowish or reddish. The meat and skin, which is very thin, can be enjoyed naturally and its flavor is good and resembles red jambo. The fruits can be processed manually by removing the inedible seed and the fleshy pulp can be frozen in portions or used to make juices, ice creams, jellies or even dehydrated for consumption such as raisins, and can be baked in the middle of cake batters. or sweet breads. It has great commercial potential.

The fruits taste like cherry, but are astringent (takes the tongue because of the cica caused by the tannin). In order for this tannin to disappear and the fruit to be even tastier, it is advisable to dehydrate them in the sun for 8 to 15 hours (with or without removing the seed beforehand). With the fruits you can make very tasty jellies and cakes. Flowering occurs in July and August and excellent for honeybees or native bees that lack flowers during the winter. It is a rare species and the tree is very ornamental and great for urban afforestation.

Fruiting from June to August. The fruits are consumed in natura, in the form of juices, jellies and ice creams. The flowering produces nectar and pollen and the tree should not be missing in landscaping projects and urban afforestation because its fruits attract and feed many species of birds. It is one of the most important species of myrtaceae for birds, mainly because it produces fruit in winter when most species do not.

Eugenia dysenterica Cagaita
Translated from Colecionando Frutas by Helton Josue
The fruits are consumed in natura and have a delicious taste, and a favorite of locals. If the fruit is allowed to ferment for a couple days off the tree it can be used as a natural laxative, as the scientific name implies. The pulp can be frozen and used to make delicious juices, jellies and ice creams. The tree is very beautiful when in bloom.

Eugenia cristaenensis
A very rare eugenia found in the Cerrado in Brazil. This bush/shrub only grows to 1-2 feet in height, making it perfect for a container. It produces a orange-red fruit, that is said to taste great and be very sweet.

Plinia sp Nova do Sertao
Translated from Colecionando Frutas by Helton Josue
Fruiting from September to November. The fruits are consumed in natura and highly appreciated. It has a different flavor from the common jabuticaba and a delicate, excellent almond taste. The fruits can be used whole to make wine, or pulped and the pulp used in several Brazilian recipes such as jellies, liqueurs and ice cream. The tree can be cultivated as an ornamental and the flowers produce plenty of nectar and pollen for bees and its fruits feed the bird-fauna. It is a species that is in danger of extinction, so every nature lover should plant at least one plant.

Plinia cauliflora sabra do cabinho
A wild Plinia found in nature in the Cerrado Highlands north of Brasilia. Researchers in the area claim is a “cabinho” variation of the common Sabara. It is smaller in size but has a more complex sweet taste that finishes tart.

Translated from Colecionando Frutas by Helton Josue
Fruiting from November to December. The fruits are consumed in natura and are very tasty, reminiscent of the taste of grumixama ( Eugenia brasiliensis ). The fruits can be pulped and used to make juices, jellies, liqueurs, ice creams, wines. The tree can be grown as an ornamental and I recommend that it be planted in plant restoration projects, as its fruits feed bird-fauna in general. The flowers are producers of nectar and pollen for bees.

Translated from Colecionando Frutas by Helton Josue
 Fruiting from October to November. The plant can be cultivated in landscape projects as an ornamental and cannot be missed in the recovery of restingas, as its fruits feed the bird-fauna. The flowers appear in large numbers in spring, are aromatic and have great honey potential. The fruits ripen in October to November and can be picked by hand when they are completely black. The fruit can be consumed in natura and tastes better than the well-known pitanga. The fruits can be processed manually by rubbing them over a fine sieve and the pulp can be used immediately to make juices, ice creams, jellies, or even frozen for future use.
Translated from Colecionando Frutas by Helton Josue
Fruiting from July to early September. The fruits are consumed in natura, but they are not appreciated by everyone. The pulp tastes like a slightly astringent green guava. Therefore, the best way to use it is in the form of juices with milk and in sweets like guava and ice cream. The flowers have great honeybee potential for wild bees. The tree can be successfully grown in urban afforestation; being also great for attracting monkeys and some birds. Its shoots and dense, glossy foliage are very ornamental.
Pouteria Ramiflora

Xylopia aromatica
Beautiful ornamental Annona. The seeds are ground into an aromatic spice sold in markets.

Duguetia furfuracea

Plinia sp. nov. Peluda do Mucuri (Blue Velvet) Jaboticaba
Plinia sp. nov. Peluda do Mucuri (Blue Velvet) jaboticaba is native to the forest located at the headwaters of the Mucuri River in Minas Gerais, Brail. The fruits have a dark purple color when they reach full ripeness, velvety texture in the skin and sweet tasty fruits. Peluda do Mucuri is significantly distinct from other jaboticabas and will likely be described as its own species by botanists in the future. The plant's small fuzzy fruit indicate that it is perhaps closest related to Plinia sp. Malacacheta Jaboticaba and Plinia sp. Sapuca Jaboticaba.

Salicia crassiflora Bacupari-do-cerrado
Cerrado bacupari or forest “caatinga” bacupari (Salacia crassifolia) is similar to the Asian lychee. It is uncommon and belongs to the Celastraceae botanical family. The tree can grow to a height of 1.50 to 3 m, with rough, grey bark. It usually grows in the tropical savannah in Cerrado and sometimes in forest areas, in specific areas in the Mata Atlântica, and in a few areas of western Bahia. The plant produces small yellow flowers that open between July and September. The fruit has a gelatinous-looking flesh covering small seeds which grow to 3 cm in length.The fruit is usually eaten fresh for its sweet, flavourful flesh. When ripe, the fruit is orange with wrinkles that make it look rustic and even potentially ornamental. Its properties are anti-microbic, anti-fungal and anti-tumour.

Anacardium humile Cajuzinho do Cerrado, Cajuí
The cashew tree is a tropical plant, native to Brazil, and the word "acaiu" from the Tupi language, means "nut that reproduces".Of shrubby nature, it is a melliferous species, flowering from September to October, producing fruit in November, despite a low production capacity of fruits and seeds. The small fruit with intense red color (bright) highlights its presence amid the shades of green, straw savanna during the dry season. The fruits are juicy, acidic and flavorful in taste. They can be eaten fresh, picked directly from the tree. The seeds also serve as food after being toasted as cashew nuts.

Hymenaea sp. Jatai
Superfood that is a creamer less dry version of the Brazilian favorite Jatoba.
Humans typically crack the pods open with a rock or hammer. Although children sometimes forage the fruits and enjoy them raw, most culinary uses of stinking toe involve baking, blending, or cooking its pulp. Jamaicans blend the pulp with water, sugar, and spices to make a refreshing beverage. In Brazil, where the fruit is known as jatobá, bakers use the dried powder of the pulp to make a biscuit-like pastry known as a broinha. Throughout Central and South America, the fruit is also prized for its purported medicinal benefits. It’s rumored to be everything from an aphrodisiac to a remedy for diarrhea.

Annona sp Espinho lisa
Ultra rare unidentified Annona species from the Amazon. Reported to be one of the tastiest Annona similar to biriba.

Annona sp Amazonas suave
Ultra rare unidentified Annona species Reported to have a very sweet flavor with no acidity and wonderful aroma.

Malpighia emarginata Giant Amazonas Acerola
Common names include acerola cherry, Guarani cherry, Barbados cherry, West Indian cherry,and wild crepe myrtle. Acerola is native to Paraguay and Brazil in South America, Central America and southern Mexico, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic and Haiti, but is now also being grown as far north as Texas and in subtropical areas of Asia, such as India.
The fruit pulp is notable for its exceptional content of vitamin C

Eugenia angustissima, also known as very fine leafed cherry, cerejinha de folhas is a flowering shrub in the family Myrtaceae. The fruit is sweet with no astringency or resinous smell. Simple and sweet and highly ornamental I am growing a whole hedge of them.

Mouriri pusa Puca Preto
The Puçá-preto is known as the Cerrado jaboticaba. In addition to the color and shape, the fruit is also born attached to the trunk. But in addition to black, there is another variety in yellow. Both are native to the Cerrado, with a higher incidence in the north and northeast regions of the country.
The species, of medium size and small crown, has crooked trunks and a very thick bark, which protects it from the frequent fires that occur in the Cerrado. With a beautiful flowering and attractive fruits for animals and people, Puçá is suitable for planting in urban areas. Its leaves are used in folk medicine for the treatment of gastric ulcers.

Brosimum gaudichaudii Mama Cadela Chewing gum of the Cerrado
Mama-cadela is a lactascent shrub, which can reach up to 8 m in height and is very common in the Cerrado (dry bush lands) of the Brazilian Center-East region.
It has many popular names; one of them, ibapinima, comes from the Tupi-Guarani and means “spotted fruit” or myrá-pinima, meaning “spotted wood”, both common features of this species.
It belongs to the Moraceae family, has coriaceous elliptical or oblong leaves, smooth on top and pubescent on the bottom and of varying sizes in one plant. It has cylindrical dark and striped (ESTRIADOS) branches. The flowers are discrete and united in inflorescences, which form between June and August. The fruits are about 2cm in diameter, compound, orangey-yellow, with fibrous but juicy pulp, the flavor of which is sweet and very pleasant. They mature between September and November and have only one seed. Even though they are small and have a sticky pulp, they are very popular, especially among children, and usually sucked, slurped and chewed like gum until only a spent, flavorless residue is left. Pimentel Gomes even states that mama-cadela is a type of “natural chewing gum”. The residue has a consistency and appearance that recalls cotton, a sponge or a tow, which is why other common names include “algodãozinho” (little cotton) and “algodão-doce” (sweet cotton).
It is little known outside of its areas of occurrence and not cultivated much. Its conservation and diffusion of the population is very important for conserving the species, as it is native to an area that is threatened by the advancing borders of agricultural and cattle rearing land. According to official data, the Cerrado has already lost 50% of its vegetated surface.
The skins/shells, roots, leaves and green fruits are mentioned in literature as quite significant in treating a wide variety of ailments, like the flu, colds, gastric ulcers and, most importantly, skin problems like dermatitis, allergies and vitiligo. The skin/shell is sold in herbalist’s shops of the region. It is among the plants cited by 90% of the herbalists involved in an ethnobotanical project taking place in the region of Goiânia. Along with its medicinal uses, the roots are also used to scent tobacco smoked in pipes or cigarro de palha (a type of cigarette wrapped in a dried leaf)

Astrocaryum murumuru
A palm native to Amazon Rainforest vegetation in Brazil, which bears edible fruits. It has a thick trunk and a shuttlecock-shaped, bushy crown. The nutritious, edible fruits are an important local food source and materials made from the tree, fruit, and seed kernels are commercially significant to the region. Hammocks are made from the tree’s fibres. Murumuru butter is moisturizing (emollient). It is also film-forming and glossy. These qualities make it very protective. It contains vitamins and has a high content of oleic acid. The oil from the seeds is traditionally used to soften and protect hair. Murumuru butter is the white to yellowish fat obtained from the seeds of the murumuru palm.

Germinated Perebea xanthochyma Pama Caucho
Reported to taste like orange candy.

Semi sweet cerrado species with medicinal qualities. Some astrigency but not mild compared to others. Organic extractives (OrgExt), also known as a secondary component of plants, have attracted interest of the scientific community in recent years due to their low toxicity and remarkable antimicrobial activity. This present work has aimed to increase knowledge about Myrtaceae specie of Brazilian flora: Eugenia francavilleana
