Tropical Fruit Discussion / Anyone Know The Species Of This Plant?
« on: December 06, 2021, 01:44:53 PM »
I was talking to another Forum member today and he was wanting to know the exact species of this plant...
All I could say was that I got them as seed from Miguel in Portugal and he calls them Sweet Uvaia:

I wish I had your problems Brad :) ...

Pat, sometimes fruit fall off and animals eat it and a pile of seeds is left, or we toss one in the compost and bury the trash in a planter bed and whever the seed piles end up theres always a ton of sprouts some day.  Same with avocados, they end up sprouting all over the yard like weeds.

I think you'll be especially pleased with those Thai Dwarf Mulberries.
As soon as they break dormancy you should start seeing fruit.

Good Luck!

Glad to hear it... those Thai Dwarf Mulberries are really special.
Curiously enough... All of mine in containers in the Greenhouse have just about dropped all their leaves and gone dormant for the Winter... while the ones in the ground outside are just as green as Springtime.
Nice thing about the Greenhouse grown trees... they come into fruit a little sooner... and I don't have to fight the birds for the fruit either.
I think you will be pleased too as to how long the fruiting period is... easily over a month.
They start fruiting while it's still cold outside... and I go into the Greenhouse everyday and gorge on the fruit... NICE!

We made it down to 33 this morning, here in the middle of the city... probably a little cooler in the outskirts.

I threw together a Cattle Panel Greenhouse this month to store some of my plant over-flow:





Fairly inexpensive and do-able for one person.

Last Winter I ran out of greenhouse space so out of necessity and as sort of an experiment... I left 20 or so large Cherry of the Rio Grandes in 5 gallon pots out all last winter with minimal care. Some froze back a little... but all survived a Winter with multiple freezes... and now they are all huge again.
Continuing the experiment... I planted them all in the ground this Summer... I want to see how they survive the Winter here in central AL. Zone 8ish.
Now I’m not suggesting you leave you’re prized Nelitas or Garnets out in the cold this Winter… but I think CORGs are tougher than people assume.
I will update as the Winter progresses.

Thanks Mike.
Yes I have 3 fruiting Sweet Uvaia Mother trees.
I grew them from the seeds I received from Miguel in Portugal.
Other than being yellow fruit...They don't compare with Pitangatubas.
They are Sweet-tart fruits - mostly sweet -  and juicy with lots of pulp.
Really delicious!
And beautiful plants as well.
Pitangatubas are super sour juice bombs.
I like Pitangatubas in small doses... But Pitangatubas are so sour they can be difficult to eat out of hand... at least more than a couple at a time.

On a totally different matter... I'm really enjoying those Kishu Mandarines you suggested. Very tasty!
I'm glad I ordered them when I did... at the beginning of the pandemic... because now the nurseries are sold out.
