KEPEL - STELECHOCARPUS BURAHOL seeds for sale
« on: November 23, 2017, 05:59:50 AM »
Kepel seeds for sale from Central Java. Stelechocarpus burahol. 3USD per seed, minimum order 15 seeds. PM if interested. Read below for more info on this almost extinct fruit.



"We couldnt contain our excitement when we found this tree. Kepel. Stelechocarpus burahol. A super-rare, almost extinct fruit, growing only in Central Java, number one on our Java fruit wishlist. The royal family grew these fruits behind closed gates of their gardens and to this day the locals don't harvest the fruits much believing they are for the royals. The properties of these fruits are no short of magic: all your bodily fluids start smelling of violets after consumption (yes they do! tried & tested) This is why the royals had all their servants eat kepel. Moreover, the fruit is said to make women temporarily infertile and is used as contraceptive (didnt dare try that!) Because of these properties, as soon as we showed kepel fruit to a local, we heard 'its good for women'. As for the taste & smell? Heavenly! The fruit screams eat me emitting a smell of mango with very strong vanilla notes. Open easily, it cracks open on the tree, plus they fall when ripe - thats how we picked them. The edible part is the translucent-yellow flesh around the seed. Taste - like mango but better, with very strong vanilla and flower notes. Very sweet. How can you not love this magical fruit?!

Hey Luke! Im not sure if you still have any left but I am interested in a few seeds. How much do they cost and what is the viability/freshness of the seeds? Look forward to hearing back from you,

Julian
