Hello Fajar

Pm and order send

well done

I will send you a PM


Hello could you please tell when it is season for the 2 varieties you are speaking of ,would you sell seeds ?


Yes,but part time ,as I still need to work as seaman,I'm away very often. Right now I'm actualy closer to Australia than central america,being in Labuan, Borneo.

Western coast of Azuro peninsula,on the Pacific side,most of forest gone since long time to grow cattle there.Only few spots of primary forest remaining in this area. But a lot to be discovered on the caraibe side,as there are really remotes area without any roads or infrastructures yet.Or Darien

Thanks for advices , i'll try to follow this route.

Hello Maryoto

thank you for seeds, they came very fresh, some of them were already starting sprouting. They will find new home under shade for next coming year.

My success with seedling selection has been most notable with rambutan.  I have a selection we call "Singapur" that compares well with the Asian selections that have been introduced.  I also have one we call "mora" that is very large, stone free, and a tad tart but with lots of flavor resembling blackberry.  I have a pulusan selection as well.
What prompted my earlier comment is that I have worked with hybridizing bromeliads and anthuriums.  In most cases you don't want natural pollination when making crosses but interesting surprises can occur.  Natural pollinators show up who are more aware of when the flower is receptive.  In my case in CR a wild plant could inadvertently cause a surprise cross that nobody had been able to do before.
Anyway, for people who have the space and time it CAN be rewarding to plant out seedlings and even if the desired cross was not made you could possibly get a valuable plant.

Yes i agree. I've planted lots of seedlings for those reasons, and others. If you have lots of space and are in it for the lang haul definitely worthwhile doing seedling selections. Especially for fruits that are new to your area. If you have small postage size garden, and for fruits already established in your area, the situation is very different.

My seedlings are still under shade ,but i will have lot of space and I'm in the long haul . So in that case I could transplant Puson and Seebabat quite close.But when you speak about seedling selection
,are you speaking of second generation ?

Yes Oscar ,i did understand it that way ." because of the chance of even an uncrossed seedling being an improved variety" is a good enough answer.Being lucky to have an hybride sound like real gambler chance,but is no zero chance.

Thanks for your comments, anyway I will have to have these Puson to germinate first and then I'll cross my fingers and plant them close to Seebabat...maybe a good star keeping an eye on me  8) ;)

Peter what was improved in your case Rambutan,Pulasan or both ?

Maryoto had this nice Puson

He said taste is superior to Pulasan ,but seed stay stuck with flesh. Is there any chances,if growing Puson trees close to Pulasan Seebabat to end up having hybrids fruits ?
Say Puson with loose seeds :o

Tropical Fruit Discussion / help needed to choose Jaboticabas CV
« on: April 27, 2015, 05:56:47 AM »

I would like to plant few Jaboticabas for personal and (small ) commercial crop,but don't know what cv would suit my needs ;)
I 'd like to have +/- 3 cultivars from seeds,to eat and be sold as fresh fruits.
Soil is a little acid,small hills and two different season,dry from December until April and rainy or humid the other months.

I'll order some sweet jabo from Dreamfrutas,but need help to choose others. :)


Pm send,about the CV to grow,the fact is that I don't know jaboticabas,so better to ask advice to the ones knowing  8)
