i have seen Julie fruit and flower in hawaii at the same time and make a second crop. some people may claim 3 crops from one tree in a year but ive never personally seen it , and for that to happen consistently, i would find it really hard to believe

Fruits from Peter’s market stand today.  Pulasan, matakuching, rambutan, salak

On the Caribbean we have durian, pulusan, Langsat, mangosteen, marang, champedek, cherapu, as well as the regular stuff.  For surfing we have Salsa Brava among other breaks.

where would one fly into to go buy your fruits?

I think the Laplae Durian festival is late July/early August, so yeh, there is still Durian in Thailand, Thailand actually very long country with wide range longitudes.

Where is Laplae ?

Anyone know ?

RARE BORNEO FRUIT SEEDS AVAILABLE, i found some trees fruiting out of season but not much seeds

1. Artocarpus brevipedunculatus
Extremly rare.
Common name: Bondon.
Tastes: Sweet and tasty, the tastiest fruit of Artocarpus.
Price: $4.00 USD each seed.

wow, what do the seeds look like? is it still available ?

Aw, man. I was hoping that the reason that these usually take at least 10 years to fruit was because they grow slowly; if so I'd be able to start one and while it would take a long time, it wouldn't take up too much greenhouse space in the meantime.  But after seeing how FlyingFoxFruit's trees have put on a good chunk of a meter per year, I guess that's not an option!

I'm also curious as to how his trees are doing.  They looked pretty healthy in the last pics.  :)

they weren't going to be something that I propagate, and they were getting so large, i decided to sell them both...the person that got them is in a much better area for growing them, so they actually have a chance to fruit...but they chose to remain anonymous, I don't know if they share pics.

I am curious how much you sold them for

A decent mango will have a peach like flavor. A good to great mango will blow a peach out of the water imo

really not that surprising. how many mangifera species are native to borneo , then how many are native to india? pretty sure borneo wins

20 seeds for $20 plus shipping. From big island Hawaii

I ate the seeds all these years.  They are great with that nutty taste.  I bought a 25lbs. jackfruit last week for about $13.00!
The trick to have an easy peel seed shell is to add a dash of salt to the pot while boiling them.

good to know

Great if not the greatest multi useful fruit.  Can cook it immature/ unripe , or wait until it’s ripe , can eat the seeds. In India they make many different dishes using jack. The only other “fruit” I can think of that is as multi useful if not more is the coconut

I've tried offering a free mango tree to would-be thieves.
So far no takers, as they are renters rather than homeowners.

so you are labeling people as would-be thieves and belittling people who rent instead of own a home.
