Not sure about in the USA, here it is quite easy to buy, always top grafted since this varieity is seedless.
ชมพู่ทับทิมจันทร์ - Chompuu Taptim Jun - if this was translated to English it might be named - Ruby Moon Java Apple, you can see it is the one in the middle top row of this picture:

Changing the intonation of Chompuu a bit is the word for Pink in Thai, but perhaps it is from Jambu, if Jambu is a Malay word perhaps it is a soft J?  It would have to pass through Yawi language to get here, knowing the Yawi word for Java Apple might be a clue if it is a borrowed wood.

Also Thai does have a 'J', Thai doesn't have a 'sh' sound.

This study is quite interesting on this topic, where I got the pic, sorry all in Thai:

Every chomphu in the picture is sweet but have to be lucky for good ones..they are as good as tubtim or better. We have this on the markets.

This is a red chomphu on pic, not mamiew malay apple.

Mamiew is hard to find because nobody likes the red mamiew. Other mamiew is very hard to find but we have nice ones.

Red chomphu can be nice sweet but we always have to taste first..the red one is chomphu tab tim and has small seeds.

True, I have purchased fresh Jacote seeds from this forum, none of them germinated.
Please let me know if you have cuttings.


I saw your message, I will answer you during the day!

Some of them don't grow from seed but if i write that the sellers get angry. Did you try seeds from mexico?

Red Mombim Infertile need cut

Can keep in fridge for many days. Cold tastes much better.

In Thailand mahachanok don't look like this.

They do not look like my MKS. 

This one looks like thai munkunsi which cost 20 baht/kg.....namdocmai costs 40-50. Munkunsi is just a normal mango, many others cost much more because we like it better.

The newer cultivars can be really good. I have a green one sold to me as "Green Bell" that is sweet and sour and tastes quite a bit like green apple. Another, "Apel Hijao", is smaller and red and honestly tastes like red apple. It's probably my favorite that I've tried. I also have one Ong calls "red-green" which tastes like honey but is milder than the other two. And I've tried plenty of bland ones too.

Ong says they are heavy feeders and can produce for months if you constantly fertilize them. They also like lots of water and sun.

Yes the new ones can be nice sweet and very refreshing. You don't need very big tree for fruit but it likes water sun fertilizer.

Chomphu gets more sweet every year, they are very nice now. Tasteless ones is many years ago for Thailand.

Now we also have nice sweet mamiew, malay apple.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: pink namdocmai mango??
« on: April 15, 2018, 10:02:23 AM »
Yes purple namdocmai i have seen but not with pink blush.

The very white/yellow one is sold out of season, now i know how they do it so will never eat it again.

2 namdocmai cost 40 baht is 1.3us$ must be very expensive for importtax.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / pink namdocmai mango??
« on: April 15, 2018, 07:14:29 AM »
I have never seen pink namdocmai mango, and you?

And the normal yellow namdocmai is always gold/yellow...we have so many tree's and they are yellow, no one is namdocmai green and is not same.

But is that very yellow one really poisonous?
