The plant is sprouted from a seed found in Funchal, Madeira.
The seed is spherical approx. 1.5 cm in diameter.

The seed took about 3 weeks to germinate and the plant is now approx. 1.5 months.

Myrtaceae member, Eugenia or Syzygium most likely, one with large seed. seems like the seedling appear from the center of seed ( not from the end).
Leaves form, color, venation and the fleshy stem, made me think of Syzygium malaccense. Is this tree exist there?
(Syzygium malaccense are much alike S. samarangense and S aqueum in seedling). Can you pinch leaves bit and smell, it is distinct (mirtle like I guess).

I only have the one seed, but I have removed some soil from the seed.

Hopefully the plant can be determined.

Hmm... perhaps we need to wait alittle longer, it will be fun to grow until true character comes out (but we are speaking of tree.. could be years)
mean while here is comparison of S malaccense

and S jambos (in here shown the polyembriony sometimes appears in Syzigiums)

Again in my opinion "time will tell"

Thanks, I think we are very close. It looks like the 2 names are synonyms? Se this link: www.theplantlist.org/tpl1.1/record/kew-199883

Thank You!
