So this is the same variety/species of Garcinia as the one that Luc sells?

Also tea from Noni leaves apparently has a mild niceflavor and the same benefits than drinking the fruit juice...
Young noni leaves are edible. There is a Thai restaurant here that makes a salad with noni leaves. I found them tasty but a bit tough to chew.
That's nice to know Oscar! I'll try to stir fry them,I'll let you know the results...

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Fruiting Chempadak in Florida

Most chempadek are really delicate and fussy, even here in Hawaii. But there is so much variation that i think one could be found that is as hardy as jackfruit. Just need to keep trying with different types from different sources.

I am not 100% sure how long it was in the 30's, an its in the ground. I am not sure why the bark is so dry looking, the ground is fairly moist.

If you pull them now it will waste energy and bloom again. Most people want a few fruit
now and won't sacrifice the fruit for the extra growth. I had a fairly large ortanique bloom last year
and didn't set fruit. It grew so much with out the burden of putting it's energy into producing fruit.
If the tree was in a grove they would leave the fruit on. They don't have the time to pull fruit off
small trees. It will definitely grow more and produce allot more fruit next year if you wait 4-6 weeks
and pull the fruit. If you have other citrus trees it makes it easier to pull fruit, that is suppose to be
one of the best tasting fruits if it gets some cold. Down here allot of citrus ripens when the fruit is
green in September or October before we have had cool weather. I have ponkans, kishu, and owari
satsuma and I have had fruit get ripe in August. The fruit is still green but gets soft. I waited a couple times
until the fruit turned orange and it was dry and worthless. The green fruit is tangy and very good, but
not a sweet California tangerine. The Xie shan is suppose to be earlier then the owari. You probably will
end up eating green fruit when the tree is in production?

I live in Florida and my sabara in the ground was 32F 2 nights in a row and 30F about
2 weeks later and it didn't even blink? It has great new growth since our early warm up and
has a few flowers already? Your tree's trunk looks so dry? Its incredible the difference.
How long were your trees in the 30's? Is your tree in ground or in a pot? If its in a pot
I would put the pot in a tub of water. If it's in the ground water daily but avoid getting water
on the damaged trunk.
