How many did you add to your cart?
Try 1 or 2, it should work. 
If you have several, I don't know the threshold, it wouldn't.

I just tried adding two and the shipping is $59.99.  Does it work for you?

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Wanted: Red Prawn Durian Seeds
« on: January 17, 2019, 02:01:21 PM »
I am looking for Red Prawn Durian Seeds.  Please let me know if you can ship to the U.S.  Thank You!

I thought you were going to use rice hull for mango potting mix since rice hull has silicon, a mineral that mango needs.

Seanny, thank you for the info.  Yes, I definitely will use it for mango and other fruit trees' potting mix.  Rice hull also contains Lignin which helps balance the ph of soil and turns into Humic substances when mixed with soil.  I do not plan on removing perlite from my soil mix, I will use both because they both offer different benefits.

Reference for Lignin:

Iím curious what your looking to use this medium for?
Thank you for your message!  For soil mix and as a cheaper replacement for Perlite.  A study at Purdue University shows that rice hulls may work as well or better than peat and perlite in some finished crops.



Thank you for sharing the nice pictures.

I was looking for cottonseed meal and asked Diamond R and they don't carry it and I tried
my local feed store and they ordered me 2 bags?

Thank you.  I still have not found it for sale locally.  I called Diamond-R and two feed stores and no one carries it or is willing to special order it.  Some places didn't even know what rice hulls was.   :-\

I am looking for a place to purchase of 50LB bag of rice hulls in South Florida.  I was wondering if anyone knows where to purchase this.  Thank you before hand.

I haven't learned to graft yet.  What's my best resource for learning?  Does YouTube have any good videos on the subject?

John, check these out:

Hi wonderfruit, what tree are you planning on grafting them onto?

Jeff, sorry if the question was vague.  Here is more details on each question:

- What is the variety of the parent trees?   This one is straight forward, just want to know the parent(s) of the seeds.

- Have they been tested in Florida?  Most tree improvement programs are beneficial but based on a recurrent selection.  I am not sure if there was such tree improvement or "testing" on the seedlings being sold.  As you know, Durian is not a household tree here and was just curious on the history from the seller.  For example, was there any type of testing such as planting 1000 seeds and seeing which ones do better in our climate.

I hope it makes a little more sense now what I was asking from the seller.


Thank you for the post.  I have two questions if you don't mind:

-What is the variety of the parent trees?
-Have they been tested in Florida?


I picked up some nice Barnel loppers from pne tools.  They have a good discount if you mention Tropical Fruit Forum - promo code "mango".  To get the special pricing, you must send an email to and they will place the order by email/phone with the discount.

Pancrazio, good job with the soil.  I would not recommend adding mulch since it can also raise your nitrogen level.

Congrats, nice looking fruit and fast growth.  I am still waiting for mines to flower after 5 years in the ground.

in the philippines they use newspaper too. seems to be effective.

i don't think a plastic bag is a good idea because it doesn't allow for any air flow.

Correct, plastic bag will not work for mango.  It will block needed air.  It will destroy the fruit, increase anthracnose majorly to the point of destroying the fruit and also the fruit will not develop proper flavor.  Remove the plastic bag as soon as you can and put in paper or netting.  My two cents.

Has anyone been able to get their hands on one of these purple sugar apples?

I recommend not touching the blooms.  You most likely have limited height growing this tree indoors correct?  This will help the tree not take off, eventually you will have to do some pruning anyways, but leave the pruning for the same day you pick the last fruit from your indoor mango tree.

What did you use to pollinate the flower?

Palmer still all green.
