Jean,

Just wondering are you familiar with T. obovoidea?  Is it similar (similar uses) to T. africana?

John


http://eol.org/pages/6960102/overview

Noticed in this link that it says obovoidea is dioecious. Are all the treculia species including africana dioecious?


Trees dioecious (sexes on separate trees) or sometimes monoecious.
Leaves in two ranks; stipules amplexicaul (enclosing the bud).
Inflorescences unisexual, sometimes bisexual, globose,
borne in the leaf axils or on the older wood and branches.
Pistillate (female) flowers lining the outer surface of a large receptacle (‘bread fruit’).

I was doing a search for a plant that Jean from Nutrecul mentioned and came across an interesting thesis:

These sorts of things are always great to find more fruiting plants you have not encountered before ...

Thats the team member that travelled with me in the north of Congo ;)

Hello!

Arround the month of Februari 2014, i'll go on expedition to "Mwene-Ditu & Tshilomba" in the Kassai region of the D.R.Congo. Arround that time the AMPELOCISSUS ABYSSINICA VAR. CONGONENSIS will give fruits. So than i'll go harvesting fruits for the seeds. (they are edable).

What sort of import regulations are there in congo (aka, can you take live plants, or only seeds)? Is this a nonprofit or for-profit venture? I bet you could get interest by offering to send seeds of local species, most collectors are rather deficient in African species (at least I sure am! The only two of my ~80 that I have that are native to Africa are miracle fruit and tamarind, aka, nothing particularly exotic!). You might want to consider making a "Wanted" and "Available" list.  Or if what you want is "everything", then perhaps a "Already have" list instead of a "Wanted" list  ;)

the botanical fruit garden i want t set up is just for privat use (collection). congo is corrupt so no import rules ;)

Im agronomist & mercenary parkranger for the AWDF (african wildlife defence force), ceo of Nutrecul agroforestry and landowner (50.000ha)

I'm in the horticulture sector since 2000. and now thinking of setting up a new type of botanical garden. A 'Tropical fruit garden'.

I'm wondering if there is an interest for to work with me for to collect all tropical fruitplants and trees from arround the globe and plant on a 1000ha field?

We have seen EDENPROJECT in the UK and many botanical gardens , but none of them specialised in jungle food trees.

Pretty big chunk of land - it gotta be a lot cheaper in DRC than here in Uganda?

2million HA in goverment concession + 50.000ha i purchased for 500$/ha ;) + 1000ha from family

You mean in Congo-Brazzaville? i'm from the Congo-Kinshasa. You have more information on that person?


Jean , Danforth and Noren are not in the Congo anymore . They kinda disappeared from the face of the earth as far as I know . They published  a cute little book called : Congo Native Fruits , covering 25 of the best and a short description of an other 25 . Picture attached.



Where can i find that book?


You can buy the book here: http://www.echobooks.org/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=316   Jean, you never answered whether the pages with fruit photos you posted is from a book and whether it is available anywhere?


i'm a parkranger those are photos from my last expedition

Since the demand for "Treculia africana decne var. africana subvar. Nutreculia" is high... i'm thinking of selling to botanicals. I can not send seeds since they lose very fast their germination and also cuttings or young plants are not an option since they will confiscate it at your local custom service. So i can offer you (sterile plant material) through tissue culture. If i receive a total order of atleast 500 plants , i'll be in the willing for to ship worldwide... 10$/plant. Since the plants i have in stock right now are reserved for reforestation projects. Ordering now, delivering arround end februari (since my company has a full agenda for larger projects.)

@ the botanical collectors... (Outside Africa)

Treculia seeds (N.B the germination of theTreculia seeds is extremely short) need to be sown immediatly in pot else they lose 90% of their germination (and this after 2 days when you take them out of the fruit). The best thing would be if i send you invitro plants (tissue culture) or in pot.


MINIMUM ORDER = 500 YOUNG TREES (POT or TISSUE CULTURE), for 1ha.

Great posting, thanks for posting it.  I have had a great interest in African fruits since reading some of Roy Danforth's writings.

I have a couple of questions for you regarding some of the fruit pictured.  I have heard many species of Landolphia initially seem sweet when you taste it and then the taste becomes almost overpoweringly sour.  Is that the case for L. owariensis?  Also, is the viability of Piper guineense seed very short or can it remain viable for a couple of months?

John
Hilo, HI

landolphia is idd sweet and than sour ;), the pepper remains viable for months...
