No, what he is showing are Achachairu and yellow mangosteen.

He likes it very much, must be special one i think, not sour.

In fruithunter video they bring wani to usa to grow....very special....

So it will have fruit now i think

Acidic rambutans? I have never found them..only very sweet and very nice one but i only know rongrien variety.

Yes they sprout easy and fruit in two years. Does not seem to be prone to diseases and pests.

Is it a big one like in this video? Or small one like he eat in malaysia that he also show in video?

With good bonsai technique and cytokinin possible.You could graft adult sexed wood on one tree

 They are growing durian on Trellis
Trellis For Durian In Hawaii

Yes i hope to get the seedling make fruit in a pot and after that if i like dabai make grafted tree and plant in soil..

My durian is also small with fruit but is grafted mongthong.

I see tree's for sale they are 8 meters high and trunk is 30-40-50 cm but rootball is maybe 200 liters...and i see big mangotree with fruit in small pot, same for jackfruit....but have never seen durian with fruit in pot.

For dabai i like to know how big the pot i need is to get fruit...dabai makes single trunk which is tall so i will start pruning very young..and when i have sidebranches i graft another seedling on it. So later i can cut branches that are male off the tree.

I have never seen dabai in thailand but am happy to have seeds now. I ordered grafted dabai from borneo but will maybe get that next year.

If on wikipedia they write that a tree will grow 30 meters that does not mean yours will be like that. You can always prune it like in that video and create your own tree. Also in pot is possible with bonsai technique, in Thailand many things is  possible. We just try and see what happens.

But maybe dabai is not happy here, we will see. They grow 10 cm in the first day, yesterday i had nothing above ground and now 3 of them. They don't need the seed anymore after they are above ground, it falls off.

I have more experience growing plants in pots than you ever will.  It's hard to fruit a banana and get something decent off of it in a bloody rain barrel, let alone a 100 litre pot.  And bananas are much smaller plants than dabai. 

I'm sorry if you don't like bad news.  Go waste your time trying to grow dabai in pots, it's not going to hurt me any.

You go waste your time in hoola hoop house, this is TROPICAL forum.

I believe the first picture in that link is fake, and the second one is definitely fake. Come on, who is dumb enough to believe that this is how bananas fruit?

Can you stop ruining my thread about dabai please miss iceland? Have you ever been to Thailand treeshop? Have you ever seen dabaitree?

This picture that i posted in link is you know what purple thing is? My friend also had tree like this with fruit.

That tree in sri lanka is not big, we sell tree's that size in 100 liter pots everywhere in thailand.

You've seen *dabai fruiting in 100 litre pots*?  Seeing trees in pots is not remotely the same thing as seeing a specific tree fruiting in a specific-sized pot.   Lots of people grow bananas in 100l pots, but it'd take a miracle to get anything meaningful out of it, or even flower in most cases.

If you really want to try this (don't get your hopes up), you're going to have to graft.  Yes, if you're in an area that already has the occasional male tree, you won't need one.   Use an upper branch (not a lower branch) from an already-fruiting tree as a scion.

Yes iceland same same Thailand 5555

I never seen or eaten dabai but i think i will like it.

The female can bloom in 4years i read, male in more years. But i have 5 and want to keep small tree from pruning and in container...maybe 200 liter i think.

That tree in sri lanka is not big, we sell tree's that size in 100 liter pots everywhere in thailand.

I don't want to plant in soil because i need many tree's and they grow so big. I think i do multiple stem grafting from seedling so i can cut the male...but still don't know if female alone can make fruit or still need the male...but if i graft all 5 on 1 tree i have good chance for fruit i think.

Only one seed made 2 stems, the other only 1.

Flowers Male dabai trees produce male flowers with pollen and female
ones have hermaphrodite characteristics, having both male
and female organs on the same flower but the staminodes, the
male part of the flower, are sterile, producing no pollen
. The
flowers are a creamy white with three sepals and an orange

Propagation Through seeds. The sex of the trees is not revealed until
they reach reproductive maturity, which is after four years,
after which male trees are cut down and an orchard of female
trees is established. After much research, two suitable clones
(Laja and Lulong) are propagated by cuttings and grafting.

If the male part of female tree is sterile producing no pollen how can we cut the male tree and still get fruit? I don't understand it, so we only keep the female tree and still get fruit?

We have so many Indonesian and Malaysian sellers so i hope somebody can answer my question.

My dabai seeds grow multiple sprouts out of 1 seed, will they have the same sex? 70% of seedlings is male but is that the same for seedlings with multiple sprouts?

They grow very fast and already drop the seed after 1 day above ground. But when can i put them in full sun?

You can graft the other one on that tree so you have 2 on 1 tree.

A little report on my experience with this seller:

I've bought some Eugenia beaurepairiana seeds from Mr. Dada, and after almost 2 months I got the package with the seeds.
As soon as I opened the envelope, I put off my happy face for finally get my hands on this species, as the packing method was very weird, being a mix of cardboard wraped on endless tape. When I finally get rid of all the tape, I've found the seeds inside a small plastic bag, without any kind of media, or moisture to keep them alive, and already showing signs of mold on the seed skin. As the seeds were incredibly lightweight I puted them in water, and none of them sank, so I decided to broke the skin to inspect the state of the embrio inside, and it was completely rotten, showing a lot of mold.

I contacted Mr. Dada explaining my situation, and asking for a refund, and for a week or so I got no answer at all, yesterday I sent him a new message, and he said that he sent seeds for other people as well and nobody complainted; sugesting that I should have no reason to complaint, or that I should be happy with what I got. I sent him another message, asking for refund, or otherwise I would publish it here, as I got no answer, I think Mr. Dada it's not interested in refunding my money, so everybody must know how this seller deals with his clients, and how he cares about what he sends out for other forum members.

Bellow you can see some images that show, what I got from him:

That's not looki good....many sellers here don't know how to pack seeds well...i understand you are not happy.

If it's like the picture in this link, then yeah much larger than Breadfruit.. I still want Pedalai, even more now seeing the leaves are so beautiful.
I think pedalai is the no1.

That is not a mature pedalai leave, maybe a young one...the fingers disappear when it is mature.

I think he has lakoocha or so..

On internet i saw pictures of leaves larger than a meter.

I think pedalai is the no1.

I have 2 abiu's from 2 meter, one dark leaves and one light leaves...the dark one had flowers, but they dropped. The light one never had flowers...they are 2 years old.

Dark one  made flowers after i pruned it. Did not prune the light one.

I was also happy with abiuflowers but then......they did not open and dropped  >:(

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Re: CRYSTAL Seedless Guava Scions
« on: February 28, 2018, 01:33:52 AM »
If you like big, crunchy and sweet guavas, this is it. Crystal is the best guava, this variety fruits all season long. It is so good that i had to top worked all of my guava trees to this variety. Get yours before it is too late.

Thanks for the scions xue :)

If you like big crispy you need guava Pen....and if you like more sweet and crispy you need from taiwan. I buy 2 times crystal guava in Singapore and has no taste, nothing.

It's really hard to get the seeds to sprout. Not sure why. Here they also need hand pollination. Seems we are lacking the proper insect pollinator.

yes very difficult to get the seeds to sprout when the damn APHIS takes the ones that sprouted en route.  ARGH

What is that animal Aphis, a monkey or bird?
