Some flowers are on the black brazil cherry but it isn't a dwarf and on the E.observa as well.

IP those ones are all about a year old. I have larger Eugenia species and a number of other jaboticabas that are further off flowering.

Mike, if you end up getting fruit from the dwarfs, could you spit some seeds in a envelope for me.

BK my white jabs are booming and thrive on neglect,Scarlets in the ground are gong well but phitrantha and coronatas are slow.I have trunciflora,grandiflora and a few other species I have no room for.
Sure IP but first flowerings don't always set fruit.
These 2 are red hybrid and scarlet and they are probably the smallest and best dwarf jabs.

Scarlet, haven't heard of that one before.
Thanks Mike, you never know they just might, always on the hunt for Eugenias especially those.

No I am not the man or the bug game hunter.If these species have fruits that are not up to scratch then they will be removed.Pyriformis x lutescens is sometimes quoted as having the best fruit and I have a couple of those as well.We will see.

BK nearly full sun now but they had shadecloth over them at first.
IP my collection is modest and only in a yard.There are plenty of more impressive assemblages around.
I am not into the Eugenias all that much to be honest but the jabs interest me.I am more interested in a few recent seeds planted that include dwarf Spanish lime and Whitman fiberless soursop.

Yeah I got a bunch of the spanish lime and those mexican hill grape things, whatever they are. Haven't come up yet though.

Not much into eugenia either Mike, I take them when I get them though as people seem to like them. I doubt I'll ever even want to eat half the things I have sitting around in pots.

Ive if you want either the E.Victoriana or E. Floridia let me know, same goes for the hill grapes and dwarf spanish lime--but for those you'll have to wait until they germinate.

We all strive to maximise our little corner with all the things we like the best, in some cases we won't know if we'll like it until it actually fruits. Then the search continues.

Mike what would you rate the Cuban fiberless to the whitman ?

Thanks S , I'll take you up on your generous offer of the E's.

Cuban fibreless is the common one here and should be called cuban fibre as they are very fibrous.Whitman is totally different and there are many other cultivars much better also.

lack of fibre would be nice to have but I wouldn't preference it over flavor. Does anybody do anything other than juice them anyway? I've never eaten one like a custard apple. They just get chopped up and go in the masticating juicer.

Ive you still have my email/have my new one?

So true, flavour is king.
Really would like truth in advertising, eg ' Honey Murcott '.

S, I do have it.

Sternus i would like some eugenia Florida but you don't have to send them.

Posting a pic of them going down the toilet would entertain me more :)

They are Eugenia selloi now and it helps them set if you have a couple flowering at the same time.
