The director and assistant were here on my farm the whole day and filmed over 2 hours of footage, and then proceeded to leave the whole part filmed here out of the film.  :(  I think the same is true for Frankies nursery, also went there and left him out of the movie.  :o Frank is the real true blue and original American fruit hunter.

I think Oscar is in the film, at least in spirit.   :)  If it is any consolation, they say each hour of video takes at least 40 hours of filming, so a lot gets cut.

Would've loved seeing Oscar and Frankie's instead of that lady in Italy looking for historical fruit, or even the banana guy (though he was pretty cool).

Yes, sorry to offend you, but I actually don't have much desire for durian YET.  I have been too focused on learning what fruits here.  Live and learn.  Ah, Durian!

Thanks!

Although the film crew was in Hawaii for almost a week you will see that most of the scenes in the movie are shot either in Florida, Bali, Europe, or shot in their studio in LA. I think they just all wanted a long vacation in Hawaii.  ::)

Just watched the film: great music too! loved it

It seems very risky to say that our relationship with fruits is what makes us human. But I like the idea

It is true that fruit trees have studied us from our birth as a species and even before ...

supposedly, they are using mangifera pajang as an interstock (I presume on M. indica).  The problem is in getting M. Pajang in the country, i believe.

In the fruithunters video you see Campbell arriving home and then he has to drive full speed to his mangotree's to graft the wani-scions asap.

Also i don't understand why he didn't bring the seeds from a wani to Florida to graft on, i guess it's all for the show.

mangifera seeds are not allowed to be brought into the  U.S.

Thats why they have to bring budwood and figure out how to graft it onto indica or one of the available species

Just watched on netflix, marvelous little journey. Best part is recognizing people I have seen or met at Fairchild Gardens during the mango festival and had NO clue they were this big in the community.  Would love to take a forest adventure looking for mangoes!!! Can't wait for this years festival.
