The biggest Plinia/jaboticaba

    10 responses

MIke T1 starts with ...
Giant mulchi is really just a big jaboticaba and how wrong it was to name it Eugenia subterminalis.The different varieties are really different species of jaboticabas.

They are all the same species and maybe Plinia sp. Shawi matches the giant mulchi for size.
These fruit trees are not yet producing in Australia but from all reports they are good quality fruits.The dwarf has a spicy quality.

Can't remember if mine is a mulchi or dwarf mulchi, but it looks like a Eugenia. I've got a ps idiom that looks very much like a Myrciaria.

Bruce they germinate and look very much like cambuca.Some of the broadleaf Myrciaria sprout in the same way but these are really Plinia as well.I can't recognize Eugenias at any any age unless I know the species as they all look really different to me.

Mike did these whoppers allready fruit in Australia?

Sprinkling carbamate over the soil in pots will keep ants away and also kills white grubs.

@Mike Tr
Any updates? I suspect this type might not fit in with Sydney's climate.
