« on: April 27, 2015, 05:56:47 AM »

I would like to plant few Jaboticabas for personal and (small ) commercial crop,but don't know what cv would suit my needs ;)
I 'd like to have +/- 3 cultivars from seeds,to eat and be sold as fresh fruits.
Soil is a little acid,small hills and two different season,dry from December until April and rainy or humid the other months.

I'll order some sweet jabo from Dreamfrutas,but need help to choose others. :)

Tropical Fruit Discussion / salak taste
« on: July 21, 2014, 10:00:39 PM »
I had Salaks for the first time in Bintulu,Borneo when I came there in Mai .
I liked the taste but they where really dry.

I did read a couple of topics about these fruits here,but among bali/java/malay etc cultivars are they more "juicy" ones or is it always a very dry fruit ?

The ones I had in Bintulu market were brown,Salacca zalacca I guess.

And by the way, if someone get some very good cultivars , my nursery still have plenty place  8)
