Could be G.hombroniana. Definetly not G.xanthocymus.

They are from fruits I ate in Java and I think they are called 'Pondo'. They are quite sweet.

are these self pollinating like Bali?  they have the crisp clean taste kind of like an apple?  In Thailand problem is they have labeled all 'brown' Salak as "Sala Indo" which has made quite a problem identifying any Indonesian varieties in Thailand.  The taste is less  sweet then the sweet Sumalee Thai Sala, but much more meat, less juice, more firm, and no sourness at all.  However it looks like yours are much larger, and bearing at such a young age as well.
No, they have to be hand polinated. They are crisp and sweet, with a slight acetone like flavour. I believe they are S.wallichiana.

Oolie, No, I am removing the curved portion of the rootstock  and making it flat by shaving it with the chisel. The chisel is straight. I am now consistently getting excellent results.

I made a stirfry with tender fruits after chopping them into small thin bits and adding spices and it was nice.

I have been trying to 'top work' my Male gummigutta trees for many years now with zero success! I have been making the bark slits as in the  video. But last year I saw a youtube video, where in the grafter was shaving off the curved portion in the centre of the slit with a chisel. Then I realised the reason for my failure!!! When you make two vertical cuts 5/16" apart and peel down the bark, the cambium layer on the rootstock between the two cuts is curved like a cylinder! So when you insert a Scion which has been cut, like in the video, only the centre line of the scion, which has no cambium layer, makes contact with the cambium layer of the rootstock! The sides of the scion, where there are cambium layers does not make contact with the curved cambium layer of the rootstock. So the graft does not take. After I started shaving the centre of the slot with a chisel, I am getting 100% take!!! I use different width chisels to suit the scion thickness.




There is one more graft behind.

I am situated at 11.6 N and at an altitude of 3000 ft. I do clean up the dried flowers of  both male and female Salak. Can I pollinate Red Salak with pollen of Pondoh Salak?

I look at the flowers every morning and afternoon. The first three ,four flowerings, I could collect almost all the pollen. Could it be the weather?

I cannot send you seeds with permit. If there is any indication that the packet contains seeds, it will be confiscated by the Indian Customs.

Fruits still on the tree.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / No pollen in male Salak flowers
« on: May 20, 2019, 08:47:16 PM »
I have this problem, the first two three bunches of flowers on my male Salak had plenty of pollen, which I used to successfully pollinate female flowers. But later on I do not find any pollen on the bunches that opened. What could be the reason? Any help would be highly appreciated.

Cleaned Miracle fruit seeds remain viable for almost two months, if packed in moist vermiculite. Never pack seeds in moist towel, as it is a sure medium for mold to grow.

Gone for good.

Need about 70% to 80% humidity. You will have to pollinate by hand.
