Could you please share name of the nursery where you got grafted durians? Did they survive bare rooting?
Manggis Mesta has viable seeds, but you need to eat like 1 kg to find 1-3 good seeds.
That's the only mangosteen I'm growing. All from seeds. Don't have regular mangosteen.
I got the grafted durians from 'Karak Tong's Nursery'. I have one 4 year old Mesta seedling and now one grafted one.
25 years ago when I went to Malaysia, I ate only Kampung durian, because that was the only one available then. 5 years ago when I went to Malaysia,I ate only Musang king. But this time, thanks to TFF, I knew which all durians to ask for!!! Similarly during all my visits, my sister stopped me from buying 'Cempedak' saying it was no good. But this time, thanks to TFF, I bought and ate Cempedak, and believe me it is far better than any Jackfruit I have eaten in my life!!

Thank you for letting us know.

You can come to SL, it's durian season now. $2-4 for seedling fruits. If lucky, can get quality as good as D24 sometimes.

I have a 'mesta' which is almost 4 years old.

Well, we went through this with this person before. First special variety 2 years from seed, now 4 years from seed. No matter what, it's still mangosteen. I believe textbooks say something like 10-15 years from seed. Some people able to turbocharge them and get 6-7 years from seed, but those are very rare exeptions.
My mesta seedlings planted 4 years ago, and before than 2 years in nursery.  Nowhere near fruiting.

I ate mesta mangosteens but the taste is the same as round one...flavour is maybe even less strong.

They have big seeds..2 in a fruit.

Sounds like you got your durian fix for a while! ;)And you came home with grafted plants nice that way you can remember your Nephew when you attend to your plants. 8)
No way! If I didnot have my return ticket already booked and pending work in my farm, I would have continued eating durian!!

Great job, Chandramohan :). I hope the trees you brought back home do well so that there will be budwood available for others in the future.
Four years ago I brought grafted Musang King and they are doing well, except they suffered a setback in this year's heavy rains. they are fine now. So I am sure the plants this time should be okay.

My cousin has a lone G.hombroniana which has been setting fruits with viable seeds. But I do not know whether it is female, male or hermaphrodite.
