The Jaffa Red pummelo is the same fruit as the Chandler Pummelo just another name for the same fruit. . (Siamese Sweet x Siamese Pink)  They are a good tasting fruit, but I would not say that they are extra sweet.

If there are squirrels in your area I would scour the neighborhood for someone who has a bearing macadamia tree and ask if they ever get the nuts. You may find that they are not getting anything in which case you might ask if it is worthwhile. They get all the nuts in my neighborhood before they are ripe enough for harvest, even though there are dozens of trees. New seedling trees come up everywhere but no one gets any.

I had a good laugh last time I picked up. On the roadside were six bags of nice live oak leaves raked up. The oak leaves were stuffed into a used plastic bag of purchased mulch. To me, the bags had been refilled with mulch for free.

Vary nice collection of rare fruits. Can you please describe tastes of Mangifera pajang, Ellateriospermum tapos, Nephelium meliferum, and Etlingera eliator?
Mangifera pajang: Fibrous sweet and sour, strong smell and flavour (a little bit like kuini), huge seed.
Ellateriospermum tapos: like almond but as it's an Euphorbiaceae it's seem to be dangerous to eat a lot even roasted.
Nephelium meliferum: like a ramboutan but a little bit more sweet and juicy
Etlingera eliator: a ginger candie good to complete salad and carry

Thanks for the descriptions. Are you able to take seed and plants to your country without too much troubles?

Lack of Iron, Magnesium and probably a few other trace and minors. Maybe also try decreasing the pH of your soil with some sulfur so that the micros and trace elements become available to your plant.

Simon

Any products you'd recommend for the nutrients?
