Well, isn't that true about all "rare" fruits lol. Poor analogy on a tropical fruit forum.

I quit being interested in it as much after seeing the taste test. Sounds more like a novelty fruit like most of the Eugenia and some of the other myrciaria, not much pulp or taste, just a very expensive ornamental myrciaria. I think it would be more popular and more information on it in Brazil in the last 10 years it's been around if it were worth much.

You do realize it is still very rare still even in Brazil. The only taste test from Adam was just from one fruit and wasn’t sure it was fully ripe. Even if it’s not a top tier fruit it sure is very ornamental.

Yeah I know others that did taste tests and they said Apparently it is a pretty damn good tasting fruit.

who did a taste test on it?

Time will tell. At this time I am testing the plant itself and what "Demeter" can handle regarding the environment. So far, from the information I gathered, I was informed it can handle high elevations, low temps, high temps, low humidity, high humidity, some drought, constant water, limb damage with self-repair, high nutrient administration, no additives, and other fascinating features. Truly a goddess amongst this realm of fruit.

Getting close…. I just took a look-see at “Demeter” this morning. She is looking rather lushes at the moment.

It’s all about supply and demand folks. Talking about it on here sure isn’t going to bring the demand down. I highly doubt people are just hoarding rare fruit plants for themselves. In this case it looks like Myrciaria glomerata is a more sensitive plant than some of the others in the genus if I only have a couple plants I wouldn’t risk cutting it if I thought it may stress it and make it slower to fruit. Also these produce fruits near the growing tips unlike Plinia. There is a guy in Portugal that is fruiting it now too so in a few years the supply will go up.

It’s actually one of the easiest to grow due to its cold tolerance. I have already started testing what it can take. No foliage damage until under 30°F. No serious foliage damage until under 23°F. It can take the largest amount of fertilizer out of all of the myrciarias and jabos I own. As for cuttings, it is like Hydra on crack.

Can you ship them?

Agristarts won’t touch it. They were the first I went to when I started with camu camu. They have a history of screwing founders and researchers over. I have several renowned innovators each within horticultural genius level tell me of there experiences. It isn’t good.

In search of myrciaria glomerata plants. Anyone have a general idea for the cost of one? Or, where I can find one in the states?

Thank you,

Anyone know how to get a nursery added to the pinned thread? I have messaged the mods but not sure if there is something specific that needs to happen.

Thank you much for the update! Those are truly wild temperatures knowing this specie’s native climate range…but again those are prolly your selected X-th generation  (Survival of the fittest).

For a random question now: What size pot would I be able to keep a camu camu indefinetely, or at least for the longest time, 15Gal, 25Gal? I read they only grow 10 to 15 feet tall usually

Lifetime 7-25. Beyond that ground, that is where the growth is at.

Got a bunch right down the road in Livingston for you.

Just sent you a pm.

That PM is not getting through... email is fine though.


Just sent you an email

Hi Greg.... I can provide either or both... seeds too.
Not too far away either in AL...


Just sent a pm. Thank you

I am looking to purchase some pitangatuba plants or cuttings. Please pm me if you have some available.

Thank you,


Tropical Fruit Discussion / Myrciaria Dubia-Camu Camu thresholds
« on: June 28, 2021, 05:46:23 PM »
For over 3 years I tested this plant in the ground. The results are in. Camu Camu can withstand below 20°F(-7°C) for over 6 days through a winter and survive with minimal protection, a tree-teepee. The results are all the same in terms of 20°F. The lowest temp is 0°F, with windchill, one lived the other died-last year. This will be repeated several times with other plants now that more are of fruiting age. Those that can withstand the lower temps will be isolated and retested until absolute thresholds are met. This plant, named “Prosper”-not a distinct cultivar just yet, is the first of cold hardy Camu camu plants identified in my collection.

I immediately start looking into how useful the plants are and when I can start gaining from the cost. Prior to purchase I research what other people did to grow the plant. I don’t necessarily use those methods but I use it as a suggestion. Once I get the plant home I use a well rounded soil for about 2-4 weeks. I monitor for amending and add nutrients to promote a more individualized soil composition. I want good food, hence the reason for the plant purchase. At some point I also think of what I might need to go along with it. Then I start research on that.

All orders sent out, tracking information sent via pm. Plant when you receive the seeds on Wednesday.

Very limited supply of Camu Camu seeds available right now, second generation from fruit picked in Louisiana a couple of days ago. Seeds are cleaned and will be shipped in a plastic bag. US only, $3.50 per seed. Message me to order seeds. I might have 50 or so. I’m not really sure.

I try to grow as many types of superfoods as possible. Unfortunately, or fortunately, I got hooked on figuring out one, Camu Camu. I grow moringa, turmeric, mangosteen, acerola too. Bottom line though, Camu Camu, when puréed fresh with the seeds is top shelf.

Marlohe, that was genius, I wonder if any fruit tree new growth would lend itself for propagation in this manner; thanks for the info.

You can probably get alot of things to root but getting them established is another ballgame. 
This only works on trees that have a spreading root structure, not trees with a taproot like mango

I am able to clone Camu camu on a very large scale. I have also done this with a couple of other plants but I am awaiting more results from testing. When I have a couple more mangos at a better more stable height I will test those.

I take back all the harsh words I had to say about my tree. It is now covered in flower buds. It must have been a sun issue as a storm and pruning of my red prawn opened the sun to it and the flower buds appeared.

Congratulations! That’s awesomeness. It’s always awesome when a surprise like that happens. How old is your plant?

I am doing some testing on this one. Once you have it established, if the soil is 5.5-7 and water will s of equal ph you can pump this with nutrients. It will take some burn but man can it handle some fertilizer. My current application is as follows: monthly application of 19-5-9 osmocote, biweekly of
8-2-2 earthworks. I have 2 of these so I was actually able to test them. Insane branching and growth so far using those two applications. If you have any questions let me know.
