I must be very good at growing Lancetilla as they don't have issues with splitting.There is science to growing well.

Beverly is sure thing, Honey Kiss  I don't have ,I was still thinking of growing it might be worth a [shot]

Lancetilla  can be  good like a very sweet kent, but it takes finesse in growing and picking and knowing when to eat .My tree was loaded this year the most I think it ever had.
That being said I would not plant unless you have extra room,acres.

I was given some zill mangos by fruitscapes to try,I think they came from zill .They were a big disappointment ,I suspect pick to early,34/24 butter cream, harvestmoon,sweet tart ,they could not hold up to edward in taste in blind trial, good thing I did not use a dot it would been embarrassing

That's some heavy Anthracnose on the fruit,I thought open windy cape wouldn't have so much.The leaves look typical for cape soil and water .High ph soil,check your irrigation water for salts.

Very good fruit,quite fleshy.But you should bag fruit because of fruit fly so they can get full ripe.Sometimes if their is to much rain they can get washed out,not as sweet

Some young girl had them at  Smiley's it wasn't her.The one good rambutan I had was [almost] as good ,but the pulasans were free stone and now have jaded my taste to others.The workers were happy to take me around it got them out of work for like 3 hours

Oscar when I was visiting the big island few years ago,I stopped at usda hilo and Dr zee let me tour facilities with some workers and we ate are way through rambutans and Pulasans.Anyway only one big red rambutan could hold it's own with the pulasans all the pulasans where excellent big purple ones,the seedlings were as good as the grafted ones.That purple strain of pulasan pop up at different fruit stands around island like smileys down at green mountain.What is the name of that strain it was better than most I have tried since.

I was smelling longevity spinach blooms today and they have a strong smell of                              nacho cheese doritos ,small yellow flowers
