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.
