Greetings to all of you.

I'm going to receive 10 seeds of ruby longan very soon, I guess that I will be able to answer to that question through experience.

Since I read the topic, I asked to a lot of people in Malaysia and Indonesia. Those who answered said they never tried to propagate the plant via seeds always grafted.

If you still want to try like me, you have a link just here

Just got that one from a guy at the local market. He said to me he brought back the seeds from Fiji and it is a fruit tree? It is definitely not a matoa ( fijian longan ) but I just can't put an id on it . Any help and comments welcome.

Les feuilles et le bourgeon me rappellent le lansium domesticum

it looks like lansium domesticum Aka duku or langsat

I found this pdf talking about pruning...

"Older trees have a moderately good self-pruning ability while young trees grow low branches. Regular cutting back seems to encourage subsequent fruiting. Trees for fruit production can be topped to keep them shorter and more spreading. Trees grow rapidly, 1-2m/year."

They are very tall and fairly narrow crowned trees with soft brittle wood. They snap off in strong winds like from cyclones and become shorter and bushier trees. I have seen them sawn off and re-sprout to form a shorter and broader tree. I doubt you have to be overly careful

by any chance did you see them fruiting when they became shorter ?

Do you have some experience with pruning Pometia Pinnata, in order to keep this large tree, between 3 to 5 meters. I would love to control and keep  the height of the tree low.

Does anyone have experience with pruning this tree?

Ps: Happy New Year

I am looking for alupag, i've got the green one from Oscar. But I'm looking for the others like the spiny one and the brown...

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Alupag, what does it taste like ?

I am interesting by the alupag in all its forms.

For those who had the chance of tasting them, are they all the same ?

true, different climate. 8 meters seems like a lot though - i was thinking 4. are you talking seedling trees or grafted?

I agree, 4 meters should be far enough.

Amazing collection, this is what one can call 'a dream life'.

I am especially amazed by your mangoe trees collection.

Thanks all,
With the return of the rain season, I'm going to put some more plants in my parents' garden.
I will update some pics.

Can anyone help?

If you look at the two first pictures, you will notice the dark leaves on one of the Rambutan, what could be the reason? too much or lack of water? need of potassium?

Very nice rare collection. :) May I ask, why do you keep everything in pots? I keep my plants in pots, but I live in a temperate climate. Isn't it a more warm climate in your location?

Sure, I'm from Guadeloupe but I lived in england for almost five years,I've just got back so I do not own any land yet.

In about 1 or 2 years I will settle and the plants with me

I do agree with you Tropicaliste on the idea of growing them all to make the differences, however knowing that Lansium domesticum takes a lot of time before fruiting, I won't be able to give you any feedback before 15 years. :(

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Alupag is dioecious?
« on: August 10, 2015, 01:04:32 PM »

I was looking for some seeds on the internet, when I found someone saying that Alupag was dioecious.

As anyone have any information like Alupag would be dioecious?
