I have a 'mesta' which is almost 4 years old.


Well, we went through this with this person before. First special variety 2 years from seed, now 4 years from seed. No matter what, it's still mangosteen. I believe textbooks say something like 10-15 years from seed. Some people able to turbocharge them and get 6-7 years from seed, but those are very rare exeptions.
My mesta seedlings planted 4 years ago, and before than 2 years in nursery.  Nowhere near fruiting.

I never said anywhere that I have a special mangosteen which fruits in 2 years.

Here he writes that you need a seedling grown from under his tree because they are the best and can fruit in 4 years...you can use google translate.

I ate mesta mangosteens but the taste is the same as round one...flavour is maybe even less strong.

They have big seeds..2 in a fruit.

What fruits faster? Can you make a list kind of thing?
Lets say we have a Syzygium Malacense.
What will fruit fastest??
Rooted cutting, marcot/air-layer, grafted plant, seed grown plant.

Malay apple takes many many years to fruit....

Then how do mango trees in Vietnam, Thailand reliably fruit every year in almost constant warm climate?

Not quite, end of year starting November and until Jan (even Feb now?), it's sweater weather for people over there. Not for us, obviously. That seems to be enough to trigger mango flowering. And best time to visit for occidental tourists who don't really care about tropical fruits.
As for reliability, pro growers have chemical arsenals at their disposal.

When do we get sweater weather, can you tell me so i can turn off airconditioning.

I see mangotree's blooming and with fruit already.

When is this durian in season?  I have been trying to get seeds for years and years, but no one ever seems to have them.  I'd love to trial it in Florida.  My Graveolens (orange) and Chanee have both recently survived 49 degree night temps unprotected, and I'm hoping that bodes well for them - but this one seems to have "all the right stuff" to survive here, if it can tolerate our soil.

You can try durian lablae from utteradit thailand...it grows in the mountains but has very small seeds (more meat). Maybe 1 in 100 fruit has a good seed to grow. It has low smell and is much more expensive for mongthong or chanee. I have grafted tree's, no more seed now.

Very interesting.  I am interested.  Do you have grafted plants for sale?

In Thailand yes..

Which longkong is in Mexico? We have different ones, from South Thailand is the best with small seeds..

No idea , the seeds were collected in Malaysia . I am only familiar with Langsat , Duku and the Longkong I grow .

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: What rootstock can be used for grumichama?
« on: November 07, 2018, 04:35:05 AM »
thats guava leaves - psidium sp., that for sure is not compatible rootstock for grumi.

Grumichama lived on this for 2 months but it made new branches under that graft...i did not cut them all the time so the graft died.

I have more grumichama and will try it myself...i saw grumichama for sale again but don't know if grafted.

« on: November 03, 2018, 08:40:40 AM »
. Immerse the seeds in whiting water for 1 hours, then wash with water and drain it. Drain the
seed up, then peel the seed if want to immediately use, and store in an airtight container if saving the
seed is desired

What is whiting water? I don't know....

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Rambutan seed drink
« on: November 01, 2018, 10:03:59 PM »
Have you try this?

Treat diabetes
Method: wash and dried Rambutan seeds normally 4 - 6 seeds per time and mashed up into powder structure. Then added some water and drink it. Drink it 1 time a day.

The fruit has been employed in traditional medicine in Malaysia and Indonesia for hundreds of years as a treatment for diabetes, hypertension and various ailments. Besides the antioxidants obtained in its beta carotene and vitamin C, the rambutan pulp, seeds and skin have strong, plant based, antioxidants called flavonoids. Certain kinds of flavonoids are believed to reduce cholesterol and possess anti-cancerous, anti-inflammatory attributes.
