You can try to graft on pitahaya (Hylocereus undatus). If you succeed you will get fruits in two years

I think that the air is too dry and the pot too small.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / help identify this fruit tree
« on: August 25, 2019, 08:24:31 AM »
A friend of mine asked me to identify this tree; he said to me he got the seeds from me when I came back from Peru. I don't remember. The seeds are big (about 5 cm), striated.

Vary nice collection of rare fruits. Can you please describe tastes of Mangifera pajang, Ellateriospermum tapos, Nephelium meliferum, and Etlingera eliator?
Mangifera pajang: Fibrous sweet and sour, strong smell and flavour (a little bit like kuini), huge seed.
Ellateriospermum tapos: like almond but as it's an Euphorbiaceae it's seem to be dangerous to eat a lot even roasted.
Nephelium meliferum: like a ramboutan but a little bit more sweet and juicy
Etlingera eliator: a ginger candie good to complete salad and carry

Did you sample the buah langir?  I have heard it is supposed to be very sweet but have heard no particulars about the flavor or how much flesh there is?  If you could provide any details, it would be appreciated.

John*
Buah langir is very sweet with a good flavor. It is divided inside in several slices. Some fruits have only one slice some have five. Iban and Bidayuh use the skin for shampoo (I don't really know how).

Baccaurea lanceolata (Buah liposu) sour only the skin is use for cooking

Tobacco. In Sabah farmers sell their tobacco in some Pasar tamu as keningau, Temparuli, Kota Belud, etc...They roll their cigarettes in leaves of Nypa frutescens.

Yes it's a little bit like Garcinia forbesi and Garcinia parvifolia but may be the labelling was not good because few year ago in Kuching I tasted Kandis (Garcinia nitida) and the fruit was yellow and sour. That's the problem in this country the scientifics names may change if you're are in Sabah or in Sarawak (not a lot correlation between the specialists). It's the same thing with the labelling of Salacca edulis (I think it's a kind of affinis)

Gouralata

How are your Salacca plantation ?

Salacca or Eleiodoxa conferta (Asam paya) very sour


Stelechocarpus burahol (kepel) so good !!!


Myrciaria vexator


Mangifera pajang (Mawang or embawang) huge mago with a champedak smell !


Talisia esculenta (African breadfruit)


Garcinia nitida (Buah kandis)


Diospyros diepenhorstii...fibrous but interesting
