The fruits in the first photo have a different shape when they mature/ripen, like an Areca nut, and do not turn red, only a pink blush at the front end. I will add a photo when they ripen. Also the leaf shape is different.

It would help if you write where you found it an if it seemed to be wild or planted.
Both the trees are in my friend's garden, here in Wynad, Kerala, India and both are planted!

This, as far as I can make out, is S.malaccense. The fruits are red and about the size of a peach.

Could it be syzygium wilsonii ? just a guess  :P
No, I have Syzygium wilsonii plants. The leaves are too small compared to my photo.

I do not think it is S.malaccense, because the fruit is not red, only develops a slight blush, is not spongy, is very sweet and good to eat. It has the texture of S.jambos, but much larger.It is the best of all the Syzygiums I have eaten!

Can somebody please identify this Syzygium?


13
In my experience, the flowers open only around 9 or 10 am. You can pollinate then.

14
Yes I do and it is only $10.

Etlingera elatior fruit cannot be eaten.The pods look like cardamomum on the inside with many seeds, which have a strong cardamomum like flavour.

16
Garcinia intermedia/ Lemon mangosteen seeds for free, pay only postage of $10.

17
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 never said anywhere that I have a special mangosteen which fruits in 2 years.

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!!

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!!

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.

I just returned from a short visit to Bentong in Pahang, Malaysia, to attend the wedding of my nephew. The durian season is just starting. But I was lucky enough to try many durian. I ate Musang King, D101, D24, D18, Black Thorn, Tekka and Kampung. Musang King is too sweet for my liking, I prefer D101 or D24.  Black Thorn and Tekka are both very good. D18 is like D101 but is orange coloured. I found Kampung to my liking. I could not find Monthong durians. I was also lucky to find 3 Mesta mangosteen fruits. These are sweeter than ordinary mangosteen, but there were no viable seeds in the fruits.
I managed to bring grafted plants of D101, BlackThorn, Tekka, Monthong, AFSA 50, Manggis Mesta, Anak Sekola Rambutan, Garcinia atroviridis and a seedling of Kampung.

Monstera do climb! A friend of mine has a Monstera which has climbed up a tree over 40 feet. But the one in the photo is not Monstera.
