Ertdude, while having a notorious collection of plants, is also notoriously difficult to reach

I am hoping to source some of these on my next trip to peru... may not have them until some time in 2022 though

God dangit Mike- You live the cherished life for sure

I also paid a couple weeks ago-

Maryoto specifically requested patience due to an inclement season over there- and apparently the package will have to go to the main island first before being sent out-

Very reputable seller

Thanks for the info Peter!

Got a few of these from Forest house cameroon and it looks like they somehow survived the storm we had in TX with temps in my greenhouse briefly touching 30

Sounds like an interesting fruit that would be a great addition to salads, hopefully even though mine are in pots they will eventually produce

Great to hear D!

Hope you weathered the storm well!

I may or may not have burned a fire near my plants for ~36h in houston, may have helped a bit


I am having difficulty accessing the google document but I would like one of each
Dongkui: large (20-40g), dark red, excellent flavor.
Black Peak: new variety. Very large(up to 68g), black, stores better than other varieties
An Hai: new variety. Early-maturing (mid May), medium fruit size (23g), purple black. Stores well

Houston TX

I actually had 5 durian recently survive the storm in Houston in my GH, temps dipped to 30 briefly

I will be impressed to see the person who can top Mike's encyclopedic knowledge

My review of the 4

1. Sabara - good flavor, spicy thick skin, what I consider the "normal" Jaboticaba
2. Red - Super large and sweet, thin skin that still has some zest but light on the spice
3. White- a little underwhelming, the little flesh on there is quite good, skin was too spicy for me to eat
4. Grimal- By far the most complex flavor, white wine taste and good thick spicy skin

Fruit looks great and arrived super quick!

Fabulous seller- order with confidence

« on: March 02, 2021, 10:38:53 AM »

Eugenia myrcianthes “Ubajai”

Myrtaceae. Small willow-like tree to 15-25′. Pendulous branches, simple glossy leaves, pubescent when young. White flowers and apricot size edible fruit. The flavor of the fruit is excellent when still pale yellow but becomes insipid upon turning a dark yellow/orange. Native to the Rio Plata region, Brazil. Easy to grow ornamental/edible, mature trees tolerant of mild frost. Z9b

Apparently picking the fruit at the right time is the key- insipid fruit is not likely to entertain anyones palette
