Tropical Fruit Discussion / On a unknown fruit pursuit! 😄
« on: November 11, 2017, 02:24:39 PM »
Today I hire a guy for logging a tall Primavera tree that even do has beautiful blooms of yellow flowers in Spring is occupying a place I need for a Durian, he is a man of campo, I mean those guys who had been working in the mountains walking or riding a mula putting lines or fence for the ejidos(forest land association owners)  who was born here in the little town I live just outside of touristy Puerto Vallarta, I asked him about if there's any fruit of good taste or value in the hills, he mentioned that there's some very good sweet figs, but what caught my attention he also mentioned another fruit that grows in a mountain like 2 or 3 mountains back from mine, he said he went there because there's an old rumor that in that mountain there's a mine, so every once in a while people have come and ask him to take them over there, and that is how he saw this tree, he says is a small tree like 2 meters high, who have this fruits hanging down the way bananas do, the tree had the tronk like palms do with marks, the fruit were hanging one from each side, he said about the size of a Pineaple he also mentioned the skin with the same drawing that Pineaples do, yellow in color, he told to the other guy who was walking with him, look that fruit is edible, because one of them has been devoured half by a racoon as the marks were on the fruit, so they cut the other one and brought it back to town were they opened with a knife, to found a orange fleshed inside that according to him is similar to a jackfruit in flavor, there was most people there and most like it, so they wanted to go back for more, this guy said he won't come back walking as is around 4 hours in the hills, so they planned to get some horses and comeback, but unfortunately they never went back! I asked if he remembered the time of year, he said in November, I'm I lucky? 😄 hehehe, he also mentioned have had seen them in another mountain within  one hour driving from here and where we have to drop the car is only one hour walking, I wanted to go tomorrow! 😄 but unfortunately he's busy the hole next week so we settled to go in two weeks, hopefully the raccoons let some for us, I'm kind of exited this description he gave sounds weird for me, hopefully can find some species of good value.. I'll keep you updated.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Durian seeds ID
« on: July 28, 2017, 03:24:14 PM »
Teo my 13 years old song when to Thailand with his Mom and step dad, I asked him to bring me if he can some Durian seeds, he first told me that bought a plate of Durian flesh but inside there was only one seed, I gave him instructions of how to take care of it, put it in a damp napkin insight and plastic bag, a day before he left while on a tour he saw a durian stand, he stop the hole tour and got a Durian that was open and set up in a Styrofoam plate, some tourists were complaining when he went back to the bus with the Durian flesh! 😂 Lol. Those seeds came back and now are germinating, my wife just told me with how many times and money you have spent in ordering Durian seeds that never made it alive you never figured your soon was going to go there and bring them for you, I had to admit that I felt great for the effort of my young kid! Well I think I was carried away from the hole point, this Durian seeds have different shape than most of the ones I have seen before, usually being more egg shaped, this ones are kind of flat in one side, anybody will like to guess what kind of variety could be? All I know it was from Thailand, any input will be appreciated!

After years of being asked for seedsthis species by several members on this forum I finally got a hold of one fruit thanks to the husband of the lady who helps to clean up the house, he found a tree in the hill outside his work place, and was kind enough to get one for me, I saw the fruits 20 years ago in Colima's Markets by the sidewalk vendors, at the time I wasn't into fruits yet, vendors told me the green fruit was boil or fried with oil and eat as a vegetable on its own or in salads, or mix with scramble eggs, through this year's I have had few encounters with the fruit /tree but not at the right time, last year in the hill looking for Limoncillos (Mexican Garcinia) I found a fruit on the ground but unfortunately it was rotten, I look around for the tree but couldn't find it, 2 months ago again in Limoncillo land I saw a large Bonetes tree with fruit large fruits hanging on it with the pole I was able to get 4 but they never ripe back in my house, so I'm very happy no to have this one, this lady told me they eat them as a vegetable, but they like them better as fruit full ripe just spoon out the pulp, also-ran I read that toasted seeds has a great flavor, when I opened if was very soft, I think either this fruit was pick from the ground or they miss the catch cause it has signs of damage, the inside was very brilliant yellow, orange, when I tried it with spoon it flesh was very soft like custard with a nice tropical sweet flavor, first thing came to my mind was sweet passiflora, apricot and papaya notes, Definitely very pleasant profile, I'm planting a tree in my land, I like the idea it can be either use as fruit or veggies when semi-ripe, also a plus that seeds are from edible and tasty this guy has a better explanation of the flavor saying they taste like Bacon, I'll have yet to try them
Because I only have one fruit and don't know when I'll get more as this is a endangered tree, the seeds will be dispatch first come first serve, price is 2.5 each minimum 8 seeds, shipping certified is 6 usd, the seeds will be sent dry like regular papaya, my paypal is,
Please let me know your username when you make a payment

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Mulching with grave rock?
« on: July 18, 2017, 12:06:33 AM »
I recently built a side brick wall along the property, I end up with lots of this little rock used in the mixture with the sand and cement to pour it in the rebar reinforcement of the wall, since I don't have use for it I was considering use it as a mulch for keeping away weeds from the trees, would this be OK or damage the tree, soil, or something else? I'm thinking it could block oxygen into the soil but I'm not sure any guess?
