Pouteria venosa "Guapeba-Peach" *GERMINATED* Seeds

Pouteria venosa, also known as guapeba-peach, produces large, almost spherical fruits with a velvety skin and a sweet, starchy pulp similar to other Pouteria species such as P. campechiana (canistel) and P. macrophylla (cutite).

Populations on the Southeast coast are preferred for propagation due to their larger fruits and smaller, bushier plants. The fruits are best consumed raw or used in the preparation of creams, such as milkshakes, similar to avocado or canistel and cutite cream.

Pouteria venosa requires well-drained soils and full sun in tropical and subtropical climates, with regular fertilization. The species has a wide geographic distribution, including Venezuela, Guianas, Amazonia, and Southeast Brazil, but all seedlings used for cultivation come from trees originating from the Southeast coast. Pouteria venosa belongs to the Sapotaceae family.

The Holy Grail.

I've been searching for Duguetia marcgraviana for FAR too long, and supplies are extremely limited. Taste is similar to my favorite fruit, Duguetia stenantha; but with more of a cantaloupe flavor and unique sugar apple qualities.
