If they set fruit at such a small size I might just leave this 3 footer in a pot

that is not a Myrciaria, it looks more like Plinia coronata, maybe var. Restinga

The seeds Stevo grew into plants came from me. I received both species of these in the same parcel from Brazil. I had received other varieties of P.coronata prior. It surprised me how different the coronate restingia looked with fuzzy new leaves and more elongate foliage but I decided to trust the labelling. It you are correct, Adam I have planted 3 guaquiea plants in my yard rather than the more glamorous coronate restingia.

super fun to grow, fruits in about 3-5yr from seed, mine did it in 4yrs, i have two of them.

no fruit set the first year, but now 5th year flowering like crazy.

very resilient, concerning humidity, heat, and flooding...easy to fruit in a pot for many years.

I luv these trees, can't wait to taste fruits, I've tasted strigipes, and glazioviana, both of which i enjoy....

here is one for sale now on ebay, i don't have many to sell now...

Correction, mine has been festooned with flowers lately and its around 10ft high. I found as soon as my red prawn durian was chopped short flooding the guaquiea with sunshine the flowers appeared. Not many fruit set. BTW the blue guaquiea is a totally different and smaller and I think perhaps something more interesting. It appears to be undescribed.

tasted fruits, first one wasn't perfectly ripe, and had offputting flavor, like papaya...second fruit was much better, closer to perfectly ripe, although had been through some freezes...taste much like strigipes, and glazioviana, but less citrusy than strigipes...

very hearty tree, tolerant of freeze, flood, drought, and high heat without leaf burns.
