Tropical Fruit Discussion / Help finding the variety of my Durian?
« on: January 14, 2021, 01:36:03 AM »
A couple months ago i got i nice sized durian, which is planted about 4 feet from a pond i have. However over here people very rarely have named variety fruit trees so it was sold to me just as durian. I figured out someone here might know which variety it might be.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Growing Marang (Artocarpus Odoratissimus)
« on: December 08, 2020, 06:10:08 PM »
 A couple weeks ago i got my hands on 2 marang seedlings. I’ve been looking online for info on how to grow em but have found little to no information. Only thing i have heard a bit is that they do like lots of water, but not much regarding sun exposure, soil of preference, wind tolerance and nutrients i should look out for in this plant in particular. Any help given on these or just experience in general with the plant,  thanks :D


Tropical Fruit Discussion / Keepin my “Ultra Tropicals” safe!
« on: November 23, 2020, 12:51:35 PM »

So recently we got hit by two consecutive category 4 hurricanes here in Honduras, as soon as the almost 90 mile per hour winds started hitting i knew i had to put some of my ultra tropical seedlings on a safer place. Since ive imported most of these guys i didnt want to run any risks. The seedlings pictured are: 2 Macadamias, 1 Cambuca, 1 Rollinia, 1 Kepel Burahol, 1 Marang, 1 Mamey sapote, 1 Yellow Jaboticaba, and 1 Excalibur sapodilla. The Kepel and the Marang are the most recent additions to my collection, any help on growing these 2 would be amazing, such as sun exposure and how much water they like. Thanks for stopping by👊


Tropical Fruit Discussion / Spiderwebs on my sapodilla’s soil?? Help!!
« on: October 08, 2020, 03:07:09 PM »
So about 3 weeks ago i repotted one of my sapodillas. However this week i noticed some kind of spiderwebs or white fungi developing on the topsoil, which is new to me. Should i be concerned about this? Do i isolate this plant? How do i treat it if i need to?

Thanks for any help

« on: September 28, 2020, 08:33:44 PM »
A couple months ago i bought this garcinia from a small nursery, the guy who sold it to me said he wasnt sure what the tree was. I knew of the bat it was a garcinia and took it home. Can anyone confirm its identity? Its new growth is of an orange hue

« on: August 26, 2020, 04:29:56 AM »
   Recently i’ve been looking for a reputable  website/etsy/ebay-seller  who sells exotic fruit seedlings/starter plants. It dosent matter if he just ships to the US. I’ve been looking for Yellow Jabo, Pedalai, Sapodilla, and Rollinia. I’d appreciate you’re experience with the seller.  The more sites the merrier!!


Tropical Fruit Discussion / Is Velvet Apple self-fertile ?
« on: August 24, 2020, 02:14:36 PM »
 About a week ago i bought 2 velvet apples or mabolo from a nursery in town. I bought 2 cause the guy at the nursery told me they required cross-pollination to have a good fruit set, but im not sure about that. Also do they like full sun or part shade? They are about a feet tall

« on: August 05, 2020, 04:04:12 PM »
A couple days ago i bought 3 Santol trees, all of em on the 5ft ballpark. Any suggestions regarding planting, sun exposure, as well as experiences growing this plant would be appreciated. I have heard they can take full sun and also dosent need cross-pollination, however im not 100% sure on this.


Tropical Fruit Discussion / Does Rambutan need cross pollination??
« on: August 03, 2020, 01:17:31 PM »
I ve got 3 rambutan trees in my place that are about 2 years old. All of them were grafted by the guy i purchased them from. My concern is that ive heard they need crosspollination to produce fruit and mine are not really close togther so that would be a problem :( . Can anyone confirm this?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / ID on this Plinia
« on: July 31, 2020, 09:51:41 PM »
Recently I bought this plinia from a guy that is said to be reliable. Just wanna make sure it is what he said it was. He said it is cambuca (plinia edulis).


So a couple months back i purchased 5 achacha plants (garcinia humilis) and planted them in 2 differrent spots my property. I planted 3 of them very close to a pond we have and close enough to allow crosspollination between them. The other 2 are planted in the same row in a drier part of my property. All of them are 3-4 ft  in height and taking almost full sun. As of now all of them look very good and have no signs of damage in our almost daily 30 degrees celsius waether. Any tips or experience with this plant would be greatly appreciated.


So i recently bought some black mulberry (morus nigris) seeds and theyre doing great in the tropical climate i live in. My concern is that i’ve heard many people talk about a everbearing mulberry and its great production, however i dont know much about it. I wanted to know if there is mayor difference between these two and if they are in the same species.

Thanks, William

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Fairchild Garden 2020 tour
« on: July 14, 2020, 04:56:08 PM »

Here is a link for a video uploaded today by fairchild garden. They give a tour of many of their fruit trees. Very interesting and worth watching👍

Hey guys

I recently pulled the trigger and purchased some seeds from both duguetia marcgraviana and duguetia peruviana. They caught my eye instantly and wanted them  as a fun experiment to be honest. I would appreciate any help regarding how to sprout the seeds and which is their ideal growing medium and climate since there is basically no info about it online. Either way we’ll see how they do down here

Thanks, william
