Stunning colors. Fiery red husk and beautiful sunshine yellow flesh. It goes shoulder to shoulder with oxleyanus for the Sweetest Durio Species title. It has a flavor of mint chocolate, and the smell... well my first impression was it smelled like glue, now that I traveled with it in the trunk and tasted it a couple of times I got more familiar with the odor. I would say it smells like sweet mint flavored glue ;)
Overall after 1-2 days of getting to know this fruit I think I start to get hooked on it. - Zoli

This species of Durio can only be found on Mount Kinabalu in Sabah. The most special thing about it is that it grows up to about 1400 meters or 4500 feet elevation. This feature could make it very desirable for zone pushers, experimenters and collectors either for the fruit or as a rootstock. The fruits are small - max 500 grams - yellow and round similar to a graveolens but have blunter spikes and the remaining parts of the flower are still attached to the ripe fruit. The flesh is white or pale yellow and is similar to, but less intense than lowianus. It has the fruitiness and the cookie-dough feeling while the flesh is thinner in size and thicker in consistency. Like most wild durians it can and should be held for a couple of days before consumption, it will get softer and more intense.

Mangosteen grows true to type from seed, as these seeds are asexual embryos of the mother tree. Most commercially sold mangosteens come from the same variety. We found this variety in Sabah and Sarawak, Borneo the fruit was simply referred to as manggis asam (sour) by the vendors. Reading about the variety called “mesta” shows a lot of similarities, except that this one has more viable seeds than normal. 1-3 viable seeds are in a fruit.
So this is how it differs from the standard mangosteen in our experience: more oblong fruit, more round on the bottom; when cracked open the fleshy skin of the fruit is more reddish purple; the taste is more tangy, similarly sweet and more tart and also has more taste packed in, eat a normal mangosteen after this and it will have a boring taste; contains more seeds (1-3); the seeds are smoother; the fruit is less prone to have the yellow sap tainting the fruits (we haven’t found any fruits like that); the fruit has longer shelf life: becomes sweeter and less tart over time.
Overall, we like the normal mangosteen more because we can eat monomeals from it (3-4 kg per person), this variety is too tart for that, it’s more like something we would snack on or eat to refresh our senses between two durians.

After Sabah, we found bulunu again in Sarawak. This is a white mango that is a close relative of wani. This variety has yellow skin, less of the tutti-frutti and more nectar taste, it is also more sweet than the green ones we had.
This mangifera crosses naturally with wani (M. caesia)

Kura kura is an unusual durian. First, it grows on the trunk of the tree. Then, its juicy, and let’s not forget the caramel-cabbage-like sweet and pungent taste. We both liked it with Nimfa and the kids said they like zibethinus more... well, more for us ;)

Local names include Pangi, Keluak. The football shaped fruit weights up to 3 kg, the woody skin, shape and structure of the fruit is very similar to Cupuassu. The flesh of the fruit is sweet, very juicy and tastes like bananas, pineapple and durian. The flesh to fruit ratio is about 50% making a decent sized fruit a good meal for a person. The seeds are flattened and feel like a stone.

Please follow the last link for more info on the poisonous attributes of the fruit. In our experience the pulp is NOT poisonous.

We love Mangiferas and to find these made us very happy and curious. Kwini is super sweet and has an amazing Jungle Mango aroma. It has a distinct strong spicy taste accompanied by a smell that will turn our head on the market and fill our room when we take them home. Unlike other wild M. species it is edible close to the skin as well. Our favorite wild Mangifera so far.

Pulasan is a wild cousin of Rambutan. Similar but more: more juicy, sweeter and tastier🧡 Taste reminds to amazing purple grapes. One of our favorite fruits.
These fruits were grown in Costa Rica, they are between medium and large size, and fairly dark color. Excellent taste.

This sweet tangy and juicy fruit deserves its title: The Queen of Fruits. The hard purple shell breaks up under the pressure of the palm to reveal the juicy white goodness inside.
In Thailand its common to plant it from seed. The locals like to eat it after Durian - The King of Fruits.

Soncoya is not widely cultivated in Costa Rica, the trees are planted from seed, and each give different fruit.
We describe our impression of each variety we offer:

"Luscious"
The fruit was over 1kg, compared to other soncoyas it was more juicy with more pulp, and a stronger pungent aroma. At the time of tasting, the grown-ups consequently chose this one as their preferred, while the children chose the milder one.

"Mellow"
The fruit was over 1kg, When compared to our other soncoya experiences this one had a milder taste with more juice and fibers. At the time of tasting, the children consequently chose this one as their preferred, while the grown-ups chose the more pungent one.

Soncoya
This is the annona that tries really hard to look like a durian and does a pretty decent job at it. Under the rigid exterior is a vivid bright orange pulp that smells spicy, sweet and pungent. The instant impression when you put it in your mouth is sweet soursop with orange marmalade, it could also be described as sweet orange yoghurt. It has a hint of canistel and the overall impression is something that we could describe as a very "topical" taste, like the 100% tropical fruit juice on the supermarket shelves. The fruit, when ripe has gentle tartness and intense sweetness. If you know soursop, expect something that is less juicy, less fibrous and more pulpy, with a much more exciting taste.

This surprising fruit is a relative to avocado, originating from Borneo. The taste is like mushrooms with cheese with a consistency also like steamed mushrooms. Good for salads or as a side dish. It has to be eaten super ripe otherwise it burns the mouth. In Borneo before consumption they soak it in hot water or bruise it and let it sit for about 10-20 minutes.
The seedlings are a good rootstock for avocado.

Edit: New fresh fruits arrived on 6th of September, opening them up as orders arrive.

Nimfa’s favorite Theobroma: the Jaguar Cacao, Mocambo or Pataxte. It is also called White Cacao or White Chocolate tree as the seeds are white. After spending almost a year in Southeast Asia hunting the best fruits, we can tell you that this wild Cacao fruit feels like the American sister of Durian. Its soft and creamy, it has a custardy feeling to it. It is also fruity like a honeydew melon, sweet and filling. How comparable to Durian? We would put it on the same level with Durio kutejensis. The seeds are edible, good roasted and perfect material for special chocolates.

Borojo is a fairly large brown fruit with a pulp that is very thick and creamy and takes out 90-95% of the weight of fruit. The rest is the small seeds in the middle and a thin skin.
The pulp is spicy and tart with a slight sweetness. The taste reminded me mostly to quince jelly, in a more tart version. It also reminds to apple somewhat, and has a peppery spiciness. The most common way to consume is in smoothies and juices.
It is considered a superfood with aphrodisiac properties by both the indigenous and foreigner.

Both male and female plants are required for successful fruiting.

Yellow pods with a smooth surface that encapsulate the fruit which is milder in taste than a normal cacao. There is two defining characteristics of this variety: one is that the seeds are white inside, the second is that the trees, and all trees planted from these seeds turn out to be Monilia resistant.

---===UPDATE===---
New fruits dropped. Fruits will be opened during this week based on demand for the seeds.
All seeds will be sent super fresh.

Possibly the most famous and most liked wild Cacao. The fluffy flesh of the pods are sweet when you put them in your mouth and as you get closer to the seeds they become sour and very intense with a distinct taste I cannot compare to anything else. We love to put them in smoothie with Coconut water and Sugarcane juice, the ultimate refreshment that’s also filling, satisfying and super nutritious. In Brazil the native Americans highly valued this fruit. The juice of the pulp was a traditional drink for pregnant and breastfeeding women.

The fruit got its name from the taste of its fermented pulp: it reminds of peach.
The native Amerindians chew the cooked pulp and left to ferment for 1-2 days to get their traditional everyday drink when they mixed with water. They left to ferment for 8 days to get an alcoholic beverage used to celebrations.
The Peach Palm tree provided important staple food to the Amerindians. They consumed both the fruit and the heart of palm. They highly valued the fruit due to its nutritional values.
It is a good source of carbohydrates and fat, contains a lot of vitamin A, iron, thiamine, riboflavin and niacin.
The fruit is edible after boiling otherwise it contains calcium oxalate and has a trypsin inhibitor.
It is common to simply cook the fruit for 1-3 hours.
To make a fermented beverage today locals mix the cooked flesh with sugar and water and let it to ferment for 1-2 days.
The heart of palm is used raw or cooked to salads, side dishes and to plant based meals that reminds of seafood as the cooked heart of palm has good texture and nice taste.
The seed is oily and have a pleasant coconut-like flavor. It is edible raw. Locals make a drink from the raw seeds adding sugar and water. The germination of this seed normally takes 30-90 days, in some cases 180 days. The seedling gives fruit in 3-4 years.
