First style, Eugenia pyriformis? lutecens? or ?

I deceived some seeds from Marcos just a few years again that have been labeled as E. pyriformis or lutecens. Effectively I had three crops fruit this 12 months, so I figured that I’d put up a tasting be aware and focus on what these crops could also be.

Fruit itself is kind of variable in dimension, with one plant producing fruit that’s two to 3 time the scale of the opposite two crops.

Taste clever, the fruits are smooth, very succulent and acidic. They style of apricot and suriname cherry, with a nice trace of resin.  For those who like acidic fruits, you’ll in all probability like this one, and juiced with added sugar it was fairly tasty.

It’s a very enticing plant, fruits nicely in a pot, and produces an considerable crop.  One thing that I discover to be nicely price rising.

As to what this plant is, I’m additionally rising Eugenia pyriformis, from seeds I acquired from Vitor when he was lively right here and offering seeds. With the proviso that I can not assure that Vitors seeds are actually pyriformis, I can say that the plant from Vitor’s seeds are clearly totally different from the crops from Marcos’ seeds.  The crops look comparable in general progress behavior, though Vitor’s leaves are a bit narrower (solely barely).  The massive distinction is within the flowering of the 2.  For Vitor’s seeds the plant produces solitary flowers, that bloom in April/Might with the fruit ripening in June.  For the opposite plant, the plant produces three flowers in a stem, very similar to many guavas, and though the flower buds begin to seem in April, they don’t bloom till Late July, with the fruit ripening in August/September.

So, what is that this plant?  Is it E. lutecens or E. pyriformis or one thing else?  I actually do not know however I’ll preserve researching it.

Anyway, if anybody desires seeds of this plant, let me know as I’ve a bunch.
