I would ask fruitlovers as he grows both. I believe he said something about soaking them in ga3 to speed up germination but Iím sure he will chime in.

We should rename it papaya-chocolate melon or something to stop the confusion

Tell me about it haha! I think someone coined the term Porcelain melon (I think it was davesgarden or something)...

Seeds sent out! Hope you guys do well with them. Still have more seeds available if anyone else wants to give these a try!

Hi Kyle,

Is this vine heat sensitive or wind sensitive like lilikoi?
Killed some lilikoi before because it exposed to wind and hot dry air.

The Passionfruit in its name is what they call it where it comes from but I donít think it is related to them at all. Rather, it is in the cucurbit family.  It seems to be very hardy and drought tolerant in my experience. I have it in a area that receives full direct sun all day as well. Iíd probably protect it when young but once it gets large, seems to be hard to kill. I had a problem with scale for a while that set it back a bit, but after treatment, it came back strong.

Same here with mangojoy but I also want a to know how does the flower looks like and if its a vine

Yep itís a vine and a pretty big one at that. It was also very productive and formed perhaps a hundred fruit or so.







Top two are female and the bottom one is male from what I can tell. They are on the same vine and I only have one plant.

hi
I am interested. How do they taste like? taste similar to passion fruit? Very interesting never seen before!!

Let me know how do I pay?


Thanks
sijo

Nah they taste nothing like Passionfruit lol!. 0% tang. Mostly a mild sweet flavor. Best I can describe it as a creamy papaya with a very slight hint of cocoa. Super interesting fruit though. When it is ripe, the flesh is a spongy pink until you touch it, then it melts in to a bright red cream. You can PM me your order and I can send my paypal info.

Agreed - using scissors seems to be the preferred way to get the majority of the pulp off.  Labor-intensive, but tastes so good!





Thank you for the pics! Iíll try it. What did you add to the drink in your picture? Any good recipes?

Scrub it off as much as possible with a brush and hydrgoen peroxide to help prevent mold,, use scissors to cut the flesh as well. They germinate for me even with pulp on them.

Thank for the info! Sounds good, Iíll give that a shot. I was concerned about them molding up and killing the seed so I will try the peroxide! Thank you!

Hi everyone, I was wondering how people are cleaning the pulp off of cupuacu seeds and getting them prepped for planting. The flesh is really stuck to the seeds. Thanks for the tips!

13
Got my seeds in! Amazing seller to deal with and the seeds were very securely packaged!

Hey Fruitliberty! The passion fruit melons I got from you last year are finally setting fruit! Also the last batch of emerald cacao is doing great. I was wondering if you ever get Cupui (Theobroma Subincanum)? Thanks again!

Tropical Vegetables and Other Edibles / Another Inga ID
« on: September 07, 2019, 10:05:17 PM »
Hey all! Was wondering what species inga this is? Looks like the last one on Weird Fruit Explorerís taste test. My old boss said heíd give me some pods from his tree and that it was sweeter then others that he has tried. I expected him to bring feuillei or spectabilis as that seems to be the most common here, but he brought me these. He didnít know the name as he told me it was an old type that was just called Inga when he got it decades ago. Any ideas?

Inga Feuillei,inga spectabilis.Not I Edulis .

Hmm Iím leaning toward Feuillei. Itís hard to ID because it seems they all seem to get labeled edulis or feuillei in searches.

We have them growing wild here. Itís considered a weed here and we cut it down for animal feed and to keep it from falling on our structure haha! Iím not sure what species it is but the fruits are very hard and dry. I hear you can make a flour substitute with it but never tried. I wish we had the gummy bear one you have.

22
Interested in the U. grandiflora! Iíve had mines about that long too and they havenít popped either. Hopefully it works.

If you ask more specific questions i will try to answer them.


Thanks so much! I guess the things I want to know is
1. can I email the shipper the green and yellow labels to place on the shipment?
2. How do I pay or how has everyone been setting up the shipping from Aphis to me?
3. The things that must be included in the shipment envelop.

Thanks in advance and sorry for the late response! Was busy with work.

1. can I email the shipper the green and yellow labels to place on the shipment?

Yes you can email it to them. Just make sure they print it in color and in same size as original and use it as address label on your package.

2. How do I pay or how has everyone been setting up the shipping from Aphis to me?

If you are using USPS most APHIS offices will forward for free. Ask your office to make sure as it seems to vary. If you are using FedEx, UPS or other private courier, then you need to have an account with them so that APHIS can charge it to your account.

3. The things that must be included in the shipment envelop.

Your import permit. A list of the seeds included, preferably in alphabeltical order by latin names. An invoice. Place of origin of all the seeds, and the name of the collector. All these things are carefully spelled out in your import permit. Take the time to read it carefully.

Got it! Thanks so much for taking the time to clear that up! It is a HUGE help! Btw all the inga seeds you sent germinated! Thanks again!
