We are now a week further and I have not heard from Stu. Also the tracking number is still not available. I now know enough and am going to get my money back through Paypal. Hopefully we can prevent others from placing orders from him and getting into the same situation.

Tracking does not work well in thailand.

I just ordered from Hongkong, always got tracking from them which worked untill in thailand but now it didn't work at all...but the courier came in time, without a companyname on his clothes/motorbike, the signaturecomputer also didn't work but the package was fine.

Just wait....Stu can't help it that the post is no good.

Where is Stu or Steve? Now Thailand is getting a bad reputation.

My mafai were not very sweet but taste was ok...they were small and have many pits...almost nothing to eat. They are smaller than longkong and less sweet...better grow longkong or another fruit.

Now i know why they are so hard to find.

If we grow mongthong from seed will that tree also give same mongthong fruit?

No, if you plant durian from seed, the fruit of the resulting tree are not the same as the parent tree. But you might get lucky, our tastiest tree is a Monthong planted from seed, we sell all the "real" Monthongs and eat the fruit from that one ourselves :)

Also, at least around here, people like to plant a few Chanee trees among Monthong to help with pollination, so it's quite possible that there's some Chanee heritage in the Monthong seeds...

Okay thanks, does chanee smell stronger than mongthong or just the same?

Wow that's a big one.

interesting, i hadnt considered temp at all. could it be cold? they are all at least sub tropical. hasnt quite gotten to Texas temps just yet.

It is summer here and many of my tree's got yellow leaves...i think it's too hot. And those are tropical tree's. 40 celcius is too much for them.

Maybe it's too hot for the tree's?

Hi Tropical, Is it possible at this moment to find the Durian Ganyao (also Kanyao) and Monthong too? I would also be interested in a mix of all kind of Thai Durian seeds.
Hi, you choose grow durian from seed for develop new durain type?

If we grow mongthong from seed will that tree also give same mongthong fruit?

You have workpermit?
What the heck are you an immigration official? How many Thais are working in farang countries? Better you mind your own business.

I'm just warning sir, many illegal tourguides got arrested lately....

But reading your opinion makes me think it's more fun to not warn and just follow the news..

Tropical Fruit Discussion / keledang seed growth
« on: February 07, 2019, 08:13:47 PM »
After 1 year my keledangs are 20 cm tall.

How tall are yours?

14
Out of the plants you mentioned, the only one I would cross off is dragonfruit. The rest are good to go.

Why?

I have a 4-5 year old tree that gets about 5 hours of full sun per day and it's 7 ' tall and has endured a recent heatwave
where it got up to 110 degrees for consecutive days and it came through with virtually no damage .I also know of a tree
from the same batch that had it's first fruit last year and it had flowered previously

How did the fruit taste? Was it good?

My tree is 25 cm and 3 years old...in full soil/sun now which is no problem.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / yellow dragonfruit temperature
« on: January 25, 2019, 11:23:25 PM »
My friend told me that yellow dragonfruit cannot grow in Thailand because it is too hot.

Has anybody tried to grow it in hot country?

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.

Here he writes that you need a seedling grown from under his tree because they are the best and can fruit in 4 years...you can use google translate.

I ate mesta mangosteens but the taste is the same as round one...flavour is maybe even less strong.

They have big seeds..2 in a fruit.
