Tropical Fruit Discussion / Wax Jambu anyone?
« on: May 24, 2018, 06:33:46 PM »
I have been doing a research since I want to start a Wax Jambu (apple) collection, one of the things that caught my attention is that is not very popular in this forum, the few comments just talk about how bland and flavorless they are, however I have read there are some cultivars with decent sweet flavor brix12-15
Beautiful colors and starting bearing fast grafted, why is it this fruit is not popular in the forum?
(not talking about Malay Apple)

Yesterday while in Mexico city I took the morning to go to the Central de Abasto, which is the receiving market for the large Megalopoly,this market is like a city with hundreds of long halls to walk where you can find everything for eating either raw or cooked, I would loved to take pictures but it would be dummy from me to take out my expensive phone there, I guess only one of us will get out....
Anyway I was walking through huge piles of Ataulfo and Manila mangos, pineapples, strawberry, etc. While I saw some round black balls that caught my attention, they looked like Capulin Cherry but they were larger than the regular ones, oddly this stand was the only one who have them in the whole market, also weird because Capulin Cherry usually comes in Summer,
I got some to take home, later when I tried them found them very tasty, thin skin, firm sweet yellow /green
 flesh, and good flesh / seed ratio, the closest I have tried to a regular Cherry,
If anyone interested I'll ship 8 seeds for 16usd including shipping

The seeds are also a tasty snack as is described here

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Cassabanana seeds for sale
« on: May 03, 2018, 04:12:06 PM »
12 fresh seeds 16usd including shipping worldwide....

I had a plant before it was growing very well and fast but then suddenly die, it was many years ago when it just started to grow plants, looking back I think was the roots of the the guamuchil tree that Cassabanana was climbing, they also killed a Durian tree that it was under the shade, anyway this week I drove 15 hours with a two days stop in Mexico city, to the Gulf of Mexico (Tuxpan, Veracruz) to visit my in laws, I alway like to go to the market to check out for rare findings, and this time I was lucky to see this large red sausage hanging from a rope, I ask how much for a Cassabanana but they reply it was Calabaza Melon (Squash Cantaloupe) that is the way its known in most Central America, when back at the house I could perceive a nice smell kind of passion fruit like, when I opened the aroma was deliciously more intense, I cut in half and spoon out the flesh, it was supper juicy, the firs flavor I noticed it was Honey bee combined with cantaloupe, then at the back Squash, Mango and Passiflora, I really like it, I finish the half even do was kind of big, my in laws did the same, he was kind of surprised as he never so this fruit in that region where he grew, the seeds even do there are plenty doesn't botter as are easy to spit out, they can be roasted and are edible too, very nice fruit weighing 2/3 kilos each, I'm planting some in my garden

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Pouteria Bullata
« on: April 15, 2018, 10:21:43 PM »
I received from Luc some seeds labeled as PA. Bullata over 10 years ago, the tree was planted on a slope in the hill, where I only water occasionally in dry season, it has grown fine and steady looks really happy, but never flowered, so the last two years I didn't water through the 6 months dry season and still push new growth, looks very confortable and is a large 14/17 feet high and very wide, taking space who could be use for a productive tree, I have been thinking about getting rid of it, maybe is from a cooler weather and lacks chilling hours, anyone growing or familiar with Pouteria Bullata? Leaves are similar to Abiu but much larger and wider...

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.
