Tropical Fruit Discussion / Durian pizza
« Last post by jimreevescairns on July 20, 2018, 11:19:52 AM »

Durian season in full swing in Singapore. The pizza was a first - actually pretty good - if I make them in the future a good salty prosciutto would balance the flavours really well!
Tried a few we haven’t tried before.
Found 2 good stalls to try them where the quality was good and we weren’t ripped off as foreigners - one called “36” on Geylang road and another one called “combat durian” a short taxi ride away.
- Mao Shan wang - they are everywhere - in fact the oversupply this year has dropped prices by 40%. I really liked the bitter/sweet balance.
Jim feng (golden Phoenix) - really quite bitter - we didn’t like the ones we tried because of this.
XO - my favourite this time round - really nice, complex bitter/sweet with subtle cognac like aftertaste.
Red Prawn - from the main land- flavours not as deep and complex as the ones from Penang- apparently a well recognised thing.

Mine is still potted and looks quite unattractive. I will have to prune it but I want to see how the fruit turns out first.
Moro, yours is a cracker!

When you were at ZHPP, did anyone happen to say whether they would have any Cotton Candy mangos available anytime soon???  That's one fruit I'd like to taste!

Didn’t see any this morning, & I forgot to ask 😓😣. Tons of crates of Orange Sherbet, half a crate of Van Dyke, & an almost full container of 36-8 (I think was the number).

The lime does look spindly.  Is it getting enough sun (like at least 6 hours, or more)?  Enough fertilizer? The fig behind it looks healthy enough.  It and that tree may be taking all the nutrients. Does the fig produce fruit?  If not there may be a shade or insufficient fertilizer regime.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / When to harvest Wurtz Avocado in FL?
« Last post by kc_moses on July 20, 2018, 10:15:32 AM »
I read conflicting information. One site say between July to Sept, another site list Jan - March. I picked one off my tree last Sunday and it has become rubbery now instead of soft. The avocado I picked was 6oz. Is there any sign to look for to gauge if the avocado is ready to pick?

Still have a handful of seeds. I'd be happy to trade for Ilama seeds if anyone is interested.
I had a Yai Grom this year that set about 20 plus fruits. There are many other varieties that are far superior than this one. The taste was below average.

This mango is nice in Thailand....
