Citrus General Discussion / 12 pound citron or lemon - citron hybrid?
« on: April 24, 2019, 01:30:21 PM »
Hi,
I bought a citrus from a stall with 12 pound citrus fruit in Amalfi, Italy.

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=dNWiUur3_dE

The vendor insisted they are citrons (cedro). However, other vendors in the area insisted that the Cedro are the smaller (haha, 1-4 pound) warty, elongated pointy bright or dark yellow fruit while the type of fruit i bought (up  to 12 pounds, pale yellow, stocky and usually of irregular shape) are a lemon - citron hybrid.

Who is right?  In the area there is an incredible diversity of lemon-like citrus.

Clip is from Apr but first fruit must have been ripe in Feb becouse under some shrubs you could find only fresh pips by mid March.

Hi,
Found this big juicy tasty fruit in a Borneo jungle.

 Iban and Dayak people both call it Binjai. This name is commonly used for the Wani or White Mango but the fruit i found is not a Mangifera. Any ideas?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Real red flesh cucamelon or crazy hybrid?
« on: March 10, 2019, 05:25:31 AM »
Hi,
found this on a Borneo market.
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=-AB14QujFs4
Vendor calls it a cucumber but to me it looks more like a untypical cucamelon. But two of the fruit were reddish inside. Maybe a cucamelon hybrid with some crazy Asian vegetable? Please help id it.

Hi,
Found an ancient mango tree with one single fruit on the ground in Borneo. Most features resemble M. pajang but there are too many differences, especially in the fruit
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=S--djoojc0E
Any ideas? Has anyone here ever cut a Bambagan fruit which was picked unripe and ripened off the tree?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Exotic fruit in Germany
« on: February 26, 2019, 08:46:23 PM »
Hi,
I have been fruit hunting in SW-Germany for over 35 years now. We have submediterranean and with climate change maybe even mediterranean microclimate in some locations so there is a lot of exotic fruit grown in the area. Still, im missing a few important fruit here. There are rumors, vage mentions but nothing substantial. Thats why i want to start an "exotic fruit in Germany" topic. Im particularly interested in edible bananas, citrus or passion fruit grown outdoors without protection.
Anyone here who has seen crazy exotic fruit grown outdoors in Germany?
