Over a decade ago, we acquired a remarkable specimen from a nursery in Entre Ríos, Argentina, nestled among the familiar Guaviyu (Myrcianthes pungens) plants. Following its transplantation and careful nurturing in a friend’s field in Junín, this extraordinary variety began bearing fruit several years later.

Initially, its smaller size and delayed fruiting led me to believe it was merely a diminutive Guabiju variety. However, upon closer inspection and tasting, I discerned several distinguishing features: a more open, shrubby growth form compared to the typical tree-like habit of Guaviyu, subtle variations in leaf shape and coloration, and an unparalleled ripening process displaying vibrant yellow and orange hues unseen in Guaviyu.

Furthermore, its distinctively green seeds, elongated fruiting panicles, and smooth skin devoid of Guaviyu’s fine hairs set it apart. Most strikingly, its tropical flavor exudes an intense sweetness surpassing that of Guaviyu. Through meticulous selection and propagation at our Junín nursery, we now offer a limited quantity of seeds for this captivating discovery.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you’re interested in cultivating this unique find. Your interest and support are deeply appreciated, and we encourage you to share the details of this discovery with fellow collectors and nurseries to further enrich the botanical community.
