Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Taste of Mabolo (Diospyros blancoi)
« on: June 02, 2018, 05:05:42 PM »
Thanks for the info but I would like to give a quick update as I have one graft that took between persimmon and mabolo. I don't know if it will last until it can bear fruits, but so far so good. Will post a picture of the result asap.

How is the situation today Oscar ? Is it getting worse or stabilizing ?  I cross my fingers for you guys. I can imagine how difficult and stressfull the situation is. All my best, Vincent

How do you multiply that tree ? any seeds ? fruits ? i could not find any seeds into those supposed fruits. Actually I reckon those yellow ping pong balls are not fruits but flowers ? right ?

Thanks for the comment but I checked on google and pictures of the fruits/trees I have found are quite different. I don't think it is bombax ceiba.

thanks, finally got the ID using google. It is  Stemmadenia donnell-smithii
Got that info too :
The Dogbane Family is a big one, and one feature many of its species have is that they're filled with milky white latex. Most plants exuding white latex traditionally are considered medicinal and/or poisonous, and that's the case with Stemmadenia donnell-smithii. The latex has been used to reduce swellings, cure external tumors, and in neighboring Quintana Roo people have been seen daubing the white latex over the breathing holes of parasites that burrow into the skin, suffocating them and making them easier to expel. Chemically, the tree's latex has been shown to contain a number of powerful alkaloids.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Artocarpus ?
« on: May 22, 2018, 08:09:31 AM »
I think it is an artocarpus from Thailand. Tree is huge. Fruits are round, small and yellow. Can't remember the name. Here are some fruits collected this morning.

Thanks for the clue. From what I have been able to find on the internet, I reckon it is phaleria macrocapra. If anyone got more info about how to use that particular fruit, please do not hesitate to let us know, thanks in advance.

Just found that tree yesterday with dozens of green fruits and superb white flowers. I don't know what it is and if it is ripe, edible ?
Here are a few pictures. Any ideas welcome.

I have selected the variety " vietnamese white" for commercial purposes and the heaviest fruit I had so far weighted 1,360kg. Average weight is 700-800gr and when I take off fruits from branches and leave only one I usually get fruits around the kilo.
Here is a couple of pictures of my commercial dragon fruit orchard ( vietnamese white ).

Season started a few weeks ago and it is the second wave that is blooming right now. Fruiting will last until mid april here in New Caledonia.
