NEW Pindaiba and Abiurana trees
Just got a hold of 3 Pindaiba (Duguetia lanceolata) trees, and 1 Abiurana (Pouteria bullata) tree. I have been searching for a couple of years for the Pindaiba trees and finally, a friend of mine in Brazil, where they originate, located them for me. He also sent me about 15 seeds so I will be trying my luck with them. According to the Book "Fruits of Brazil", the "PindaÃ¯Â¿Â½ba" (Duguetia lanceolata) a member of the Annonaceae family, is already being dropped from Brazilian dictionaries. A "red, exuberant, custard apple...this beautiful delicacy," says Silva, is "practically extinct".
Pindaiba (Duguetia lanceolata)
As for the Abiurana, it is a close relative of the Abiu, but more cold Hardy. It is pretty rare in private collections and outside of its native range.
Abiurana (Pouteria bullata)
Is there anyone else out there that has any experience with either of these trees? I would love to hear about it.
