Hmmm ... I don't know if it's true. There is a pineapple plantation on the island São Miguel (under glass) because it's just too cold there.
Of course it's true. You have diferent micro-climates in same island. The only cofee plantation in Europe is in Azores.

Dry? No. There are some places more dry but not in general. The best places are on south coasts and low/protected areas.

Some islands of Azores and some localities of Madeira island...

Luisport I would post pictures on Tuesday, so you can tell me if this is myrtle.

I have a common myrtle from Spain but this one is moderately resistant to the cold.
While the other plant whose seeds I had collected in a park seems much more resistant to the cold.
But I still have a doubt as to whether it is a myrtle plant because I had never seen a resistant myrtle in the area.

Your myrtle plant resists to what temperature?
I think all myrtle is very cold resistent... i never got any problem... but i don't know how much cold hardy he is.

I already have big fruit myrtle and we make liquor with it... it's our best liquor, really good!

Chalchal is here!



SAPINDACEAE

Its fruit is very sweet and the leaves and thin twigs are also used to counteract liver detoxification, also as a refresher and for tereré. It is cultivated in some places as an ornamental.
It is a dioecious tree that reaches a height of between 4 and 7 meters, although sometimes it reaches 15 meters. It is native to Argentina, Brazil, Guyana, Bolivia, Uruguay, and Paraguay. It grows at Buenos Aires too, in the riverside forests up to Punta Lara.
Reddish-brown trunk, scaly bark.
Compound, trifoliate, alternate leaves, glabrous, toothed leaflets, with short pedicels and sometimes even sessile.
The flowers are small, whitish, about 2 mm in diameter in clusters; the male flowers with the filaments of the hairy stamens; female flowers have trifid stigma. It blooms in August and September.
The fruit is a globose croup between 7 and 11 mm in diameter, yellow in color, turning red when ripe. Ripening is in clusters and uneven, notorious because the different fruits are seen with different colors. It bears fruit from September to November.


I sell fresh seeds in vermiculite and can do bulk shippings, cheers

I have one Chalchal small tree growing outside, so it's cold hardy too.

Regards,

João
