直立形的雞爪槭.  這種樹形優美的樹大概是最為常見的日本楓品種.  落葉樹種. 它的深紅偏暗紅的葉片從春天維持顏色到秋末.  由於其成熟植株較小與其生長速度緩慢使得它非常受歡迎並且很適合小型到中型庭院栽種.  容易栽種ˋ.  最好栽種在全日照到半日照處.  耐寒也耐熱.  成熟株高15-20呎,寬幅6-10呎.  繁殖方式以種子,扦插或高壓的方式來進行.

Araza (Eugenia stipitata) seeds. 思帝果的種子.

Tropical fruit tree with very fragrant, aromatic and good flavour but acidic fruit. Evergreen.   Easy to grow.  Best growing in full sun to partial shade location in moist soil.  Very good for making jam or making juice to blend with other sweeter fruit.  Seeds germination will take almost 6 months though.  Otherwise it is easy to grow.  Best growing in full sun to partial shade location.  White flowers blooming all year around. Fruit should be picked when ripe and mature to yellow color on the tree.  You rarely seen this in supermarket because yellow ripe fruit is fragile which it is not good for shelf display.  😦    USDA Zones:9-11.  Mature size:7′-15′(H/W).   Propagate by seeds, cuttings, air-layering.
原生於亞馬遜熱帶雨林的常綠果樹. 果實味道很香,滋味好但味酸. 容易栽種.  最好栽種在全日照到半日照處的濕潤土壤.  因為味香風味佳但味道酸所以多加糖製成果醬或者打成果汁做成飲料. 種子出芽曼有時要半年左右. 要不然苗期短. 查資料是說一年到頭都能開花結果. 花小而白. 果實熟到轉黃才好採收.  果實成熟後採收的貯存期限約僅3天所以超市很少見到它們的蹤影.  喜熱不耐寒.  成熟株高/寬幅為7-15呎.  繁殖方式以種子,扦插或高壓方式來進行.
