Also have a member auctioning off Eugenia cereja another very rare fruit tree from southern Brazil. Just saw some on EBay same size go well over $100 plus shipping. This one starts at only $25 plus shipping.

Have a great day my friends.

I am not 100% sure but I think it is native to Cerrado transition area in Bahia Brazil. At the time Sellami was collecting in that region. From reports of other Psidiums and other fruit species in that area should handle down to around 28F. I can tell it doesnít like too much water in the winter and prefers soil with very good drainage I have about 40% perlite then the rest peat moss.

I forgot to say the Psidium sp Mancha Vermelha is named that due to the red spots on the green pear shaped fruit. First pic is the fruit provided by the Seedshunter Sellami. 2nd is the actual plant 3g pot in the raffle.
