Seen in the market before but also just simply known as Lamyai Daeng, Red Longon.

Read was somewhat fickle to weather more suited to higher from the equator.  Iím down in NST near the equator and weather is never cool, except for the brief windchill that comes from rain and heavy wind.

Have you tried them ?.

From what I understand about this cultivar, the branches are supposed to be more brittle than the normal Longan. Also, it grows to be more bushy or vine-like than the normal Longan, according to some Thai websites.

Will see in a couple of years.

Thanks

Search for " ลำไยเถาผลสีชมพู " if you would like to learn more about this variety.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Pink Longan
« on: March 09, 2019, 04:38:47 PM »
I recently bought a small grafted pink Longan and I was wondering if someone in here tried the fruit before ?.

Here is an article about it ( in Thai language).

Thanks Waldi.

It seems like there is another interesting longan cultivar called Pink Longan and my local nursery may have it.

Does anyone in here grow longan Ping pong ?. My local nursey just brought several trees from Thailand and I was wondering if it is worth buying because I already have Longan edo.

Iím in Mysore on business and want to locate a rare fruit market. Any ideas! What do you think I can find here this time of year? Iíd like to try to find something exotic,  not mango or jackfruit. Sanrio, durian, mangosteen, etc.  On the slim chance that someone has been here, any recommendations? Also going down to Ooty for a day. Thanks! -Jon

Mysore is not really the best place for Exotic fruits. If you go further south, In Tamil nadu(ooty is in Tamil Nadu), you should be able to find Jack fruit, Teddy palm fruits coconut, sugar cane juice , etc. If you want to hit the jackpot , you have only one option... Kerala. Just a few hundred miles from Ooty.

Have you tried to grow date palm ?.

I'm literally surrounded by thousands of medjool, barhi and deglet palms. We have 8 medjools on property.

Edit: I know a date farmer who has a barhi seedling that has a red blush to it with fantastic size and super sweet taste. If I add one more date palm that would be it. But I doubt he will be selling any shoots any time soon lol

Wonderful.

I personally prefer barhi over medjhool but, medjhool is still a very good cultivar to have. A good barhi date palm produce one of most delicious dates I have ever had, taste like Vanilla-Caramel.

You could try to grow Marula, this species can handle heat with no problem.

Temp fluctuations are quite small in Borneo but in the dry season ( they call it summer) its supposed to be hotter. And Rundum is very wet.
I would not give up on the ultra tropicals, though. One example: in Germany Eryobotrya usually comes from the Mediterranean. Trees fruit once in about 10 years and freeze once in about 10 years. There is a pretty large Eryobotrya tree in Heidelberg that fruits every year. When i asked the owner where its from he said from Brazil.
Coconut trees are common in the Canary resorts but fruit are often small, sometimes without flesh or even a hard shell . The tourists pick the ones on low trees while unripe.

Loquat in Heidelberg? ;D I have also heard of pommegranates and figs acclimated in Germany.
I agree that you have to try. To be honest I have been surprised several times because ssp could get acclimated to our region. for example Anacardium excelsum from the swamps of Panama. I will keep on trying with new things, but not waste more time with durian, mangosteen, etc..

I have seen a guy at Instagram and he is from Oman (Muscat). He is growing mangosteen and Rambutan. However, I do agree with Durian they are hard to grow.

Here is a picture of his Rambutan.

Felipe,

Did you manage to fruit chupa chupa tree at your location  :) ?.  I remember you posted a picture of this tree long time ago and I'm wondering how the tree is doing right now.

BTW, have you tried to grow Pometia pinnata (Fiji longan/matoa) and Xanthophyllum amoenum ?.

Sorry but I removed the tree, despite it was growing well, because of three reason:

- the plant was terrible afected by Aleurothrixus floccosus. no chance to control this awfull fly on the tree
- the mother plant was decidious, so my tree was probably either male or female
- the fruit of the mother plant was rather bad

I have already written in this forum that I had the chance to eat many kilos of excellent tasting chupa chupa in the Peruvian Amazon (they call it sapote). It is still in my top 10 fruit list (or even top 5), but my tree had no good genetics. If I get one day again good material, I would try again.

I once ordered Pometia pinnata seeds, but they unfortunatelly did not grow. I think this sp. should do fine in the subtropics.
Regarding Xanthophyllum amoenum its the first time I hear of this sp  ;D
Do you have experience with any of those?

Sorry to hear that, Felipe.

I have only tried Pometia pinnata and Quararibea cordata. In fact, I received my Quararibea cordata seeds about three months ago, it took about 2 months to arrive to me from Costa Rica and I managed to germinate almost all of them. It seems like it can handle my city water and a temperature about/above 10C.

As for Pometia pinnata seeds that I got from Malaysia. The package took more than I expected, around 45 days  :-X, usually it takes around 10 to 15 days. Anyway, i should have 2 to 4 seedlings if everything goes well. These seeds are really very perishable. I tried to grow it before but failed, so this is my second try.

Yes, g. Xanthochymus and livingstoneii for example fruit well here, but not others like mangosteen..
In rundum day temperature around 11 celsius?! Wow.. that is the lowest i have ever had.. well but there are other factors. IMO the most important factors for ultratropicals are high temperature and small fluctuations, high humudity and low ph. Probably the climate in rundum is very humid, right? Its the opposit in my location..

I was going to order Pedalai seeds, I guess I was late  :'( . Let me know if you have any seeds left.  ;)

Very cool. Taste good?

The taste is acceptable/good in my opinion. As for home growers, it is not really worth the space  :-[ .

Lychee and Waxberry are certainly better option, if you can grow them (i'm talking about Chinese fruits). Especially Waxberry it was quite a surprise, a very nice fruit to have.

It seems like the fruit I have is called Chinese Hawthorn, Crataegus pinnatifida.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Chinese red Guava/Ugni (Crataegus pinnatifida)
« on: December 14, 2018, 04:15:22 PM »
Today, I found a strange fruit at supermarket. It was labeled as Chinese red Guava but it doesn't look like guava at all. It could be ugni species, maybe.

I tried one fruit and it tasted like strawberry apple, with only 3 seeds in the center.

I will post a picture.... soon

Copper deficiency in mango could also cause gummosis and die back. so try to spray/drench your trees with chelated trace elements

  I want a large flavorful fruit that in non astringent.


If you could find rojo brillante in the USA that will be a great cultivar to have. The fruit is large and non astringent.

« on: November 15, 2018, 05:42:37 PM »
Get a product that contain chelated elements Like zinc edta or fe edta, etc. They are supposed to have a better absorption rate.

You could also add a wetting agent or surfactant to maximize your fertilization regime.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Sunshine or Sancheen Mango
« on: November 13, 2018, 03:49:19 PM »
A few days ago my local Nursery sent me a message and telling he got two new mango varieties. He got Coconut Mango (could be coconut cream mango, maybe) and another variety called sunshine or sansheen mango (sorry it was written in Arabic). so....

My question is, Does anyone in here grow or know anything about Sunshine or Sancheen Mango ?.
