I had a chance to taste pitomba for the first time recently.  Very flavorful fruit.  Something like apricot, but more intensely sweet and sour.  Definitely something to plant if you have the space and want to get beyond the basic tropical fruits.

I had the fortune of trying out some fresh grumichas; They tasted fantastically similar to sweet Northern Bing cherry, according to my taste bud. Now I have never tried pitomba before, but the fruit looks pretty similar to a grumichama. When you taste a pitomba, can you easily tell it apart from the taste of a grumichama? Or is the flavor difference among the 2 fruits quite subtle? Thanks!

Hi all. Sorry I missed the messages here. I think I am caught up on the PMs. I still have some seeds available.

The grumichama are decent. I have two different seedlings next to each other and they taste similar. Both have a nice cherry flavor to them. The pitomba are much more of flavor bomb. Nice flesh to seed ratio and they taste like a spicy apricot. Really nice. I have eaten some that weren't great like the giant tree at Fairchild's Kampong. I would put my pitomba on par with the zill dark surinams quality wise which are excellent. Very different flavor but both excellent.

No international shipping. It really is a huge pain. I've gone through those paces before. Thanks for looking though.

Thank you! Just what I wanted to hear. Nice "spicy apricot" flavor sounds good in my book. Apricot is one of my favorite pit fruits, surpassing even some of the grafted peach varieties. It's also good to note that not all pitomba fruits are great tasting as you pointed out on the large pitomba tree at Fairchild's Kampong. Glad you pointed that out. Now I am intrigued! So many varieties and flavors out there to choose from. Such is the life of a food forest admirer.  :D
