fOR SURE-PLANT THE SEED
iN tHAILAND IT WAS 2 YEARS SEED TO PICKING FRUIT

My passion fruit vines are also in a clay soil-but only after adding a good compost and some dry manure
Also recommend planting in raised mound-they don't tolerate wet feet
The sand when it eventually mixes with clay just makes it harder-not a good solution

True to seed if you only have one variety
They cross bread quite easily if there is more than one variety

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Re: Wanted: Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa)
« on: March 27, 2018, 09:17:53 PM »
I grow both Forastero and Criollo cocoa
Seeing as Trinatero is a cross of these 2 types in all likelihood the fruit will naturally cross pollinate
Just PM me if your interested in seed

Roselle wine-for 5 gallon
 3-4 kilo fresh roselle blossoms (without the cores) -there's a big difference between the taste with dried and fresh Roselle
8-10 kilo sugar
lalvin yeast is preferred
Put roselle in bucket with 3 gallons boiling water-add sugar and fill with additional boiled water
Let stand till cool and add yeast
I generally start removing the blossoms after the 3rd day-otherwise they float and can mold
Length of ferment depends on temperature

Passion-fruit wine-for 5 gallon
6-10 kilo passion-fruit -depends on there size
10-12 kilo sugar
yeast of choice
Just empty the passion-fruit pulp into the bucket
Add HOT or boiling water and sugar
Cool and add yeast
The pulp and seed are removed when yeast has stopped working
Honey makes a nice addition-2 quarts

Watermelon wine
2-3 melon -depends on size-remove as much rind as possible
8-10 kilo sugar and 1 quart honey
yeast of choice
fill bucket with boiling water
let cool and add yeast
ferment till done-finished bubbling
I use airlocks on the buckets-keeps out unwanted bacteria and makes it easy to see when yeast has finished working and everything is sanitized before use

I strain any fruit residue then let sit to settle any sediment and rack at least twice before bottling
The watermelon and roselle are fine after a couple weeks-but both the watermelon and passion-fruit improve greatly with age

You can even take things 1 step further and make your own specialty vinegar
red wine vinegar from the roselle
malt vinegar from beer
even have a batch of balsamic vinegar ageing in oak
all you need is a vinegar "mother"

Tried MANY fruits for fermenting
So far best results are
- roselle for a red wine   (best with fresh fruit)  ferments quickly and produces decent wine in short time
-passionfruit    (prefer the red and yellow )   ages very well and improves with age
-watermellon   (include rind but NOT skin)   had mixed success,seems to depend greatly on temperature fermenting-cooler is better

Tried  many other tropical fruits -but those were the best so far

Sorry about the storm damage
My miracle fruit tree is too young for seed yet-but if I get some locally I'll save the seed for you
Anything else you need? Always willing to trade

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Sacha Inchi seeds? (Plukenetia volubilis)
« on: November 12, 2017, 06:41:49 PM »
Hi Guys
Have an over abundance of Inca Nut growing here
Lots of seed available for trade
There actually not all that hard to clean-if you leave them out in the sun the outer layer cracks and the seed pods fall right out
They will keep for months like this and remain viable
A little more work to remove the inner husk-but defiantly easier after roasting
