Plinia aureana Seeds
Plinia aureana is characterized by lanceolate leaves that can grow up to 12cm in length. During its initial growth phase, the leaves have a pubescent appearance with a salmon hue, which eventually transforms into a dark green color with distinct, deeply impressed primary and lateral veins.
The fruit of Plinia aureana is small and often features a slight nipple at the point of connection with the peduncle. Despite being ripe, the fruit maintains a light green hue and contains 1-3 large seeds. The flavor is excellent and has a sweet jaboticaba taste with a subtle hint of honey. This species usually starts bearing fruit at 5-7 years of age, and a sample of ripe fruit exhibited a brix ranged between 12-19%.
