"Jacaratia Mexicana" is the first Mexican species that I found interesting in. Its seeds were purchased from Raul (Raulglezruiz). They are now nice and healthful seedlings. Without Tropical Fruit Forum (and Raul), I would never know such weird looking species.

Thank you all admins and Merry Christmas to all members! Wish you all a happy holidays and a very happy coming new year with your families, friends and your beloved fruit trees :)

Which variety of "Durio graveolens" do you have: orange or red flesh? I'd love to know their average size too.

If you accidentally find "Durio grandiflorus" (ghost durian), it would be great!

Nice sir, would love to know more!

dear friends,

i live on my a farm here in ecuador, where i have a collection of about 600 species of fruits.   some are on my webpage

“antipode” means the place exactly opposite where you are on earth, that is where if you went in a straight line thru the center of the earth, where you would come out on the other side.   my antipode is on sumatra.   i hope to go there in the coming year or 2.

can you tell me where you found the tree of lowianus?

are you interested in exchanging seeds?

if you are willing to exchange im interested in those seeds, just a few.

my email is

Hi Jim, Simon is not often checking the forum as he usually travels "full time". It's faster messaging him on facebook (Justyna Stoklosa) or instagram (@fit_shortie_eats) or youtube (Fit Shortie Eats).

The toxins in cycads don't kill people instantly, but have cumulative neurodegenerative effects.

Whoop, that's silent but quite dangerous! Anyway, this is a rare cycad. In my region it is unknown/alien-liked which is exciting to me.

he said about the size of a Pineaple he also mentioned the skin with the same drawing that Pineaples do, yellow in color, he told to the other guy who was walking with him, look that fruit is edible, because one of them has been devoured half by a racoon as the marks were on the fruit, so they cut the other one and brought it back to town were they opened with a knife, to found a orange fleshed inside that according to him is similar to a jackfruit in flavor, there was most people there and most like it, so they wanted to go back for more

A racoon, some folks plus Raul had eaten the fruits and it seems that they are all ok. There's a high chance that this rare cycad really has edible flesh :D

I like weird-looking prehistoric/ancient stuff, especially if they're edible ;D
Thanks Raul for sharing such thing, PM sent!

Updated: my inquiry has been updated Raul!

Some of my Annona crassiflora seedlings planted in March/17 sprouting in october-november
I will have fresh seeds again in march/18.

Looks great Guilherme!! Can't wait to get some seeds.

I already went this Sunday and found it! 😄 more news and pics tomorrow as I have been exhausted, I walked 4 and 1/2  hours all together in the hills, when I came back I feel my back as if somebody hit me with a stick, and my lower legs are still in pain when walking, that just reminded me I need a do more regular exercise! 😄

That's a lot of walking Raul!
You'll need some long rests and very rich meals ;D

Maryoto is not checking the forum very often. It's better to contact him directly via email in his signature.

Very informative, thanks Oscar!!

It’s been decided that it is G. vleerackeii, correct?

Luc, is that a really nice name ;D ??

For seeds you can purchase directly from Luc in May 2018 I guess.

For seedlings, some members may help for ex Oscar (

Very rare species sir Dada! I have a small question regarding "Annona nutans". Its taste is sweet but... (missing something).
Is the fruit small and/or having many seeds?

I think Mr Guilherme cast some spell so that the seeds would be viable until the spell expired, for at least 6 months ;D

 ISpendTooMuchTimeHere Nice collection! Find some unknown one and name it "Plinia sudowoodo" for reminding of a great Pokemon childhood :D

Usually I send seeds first and then ask for money.Two buyers(one from Russia and another from Thailand) were sent seeds a few days back ,I have given them a few reminders but none of them is not responding.I am worried about them.Thank you

After this I think it's a lot better to do money first seeds later.

Escarlate is the fastest and less than 3 years.

That's fast thanks Mike!!

My favorite was Z4, very sweet and juiciy. I think it's even sweeter than Sabara. Another very good one, not in photo, was Ponhema. Also very sweet and juicy. The Escarlate was second favorite, very similar to red hybrid jaboticaba. Ofoourse havind different types of jaboticabas extends the season also.

Oscar may I ask how long Z4 and Escarlate will fruit from seeds? I have very small seedlings of both just starting to germinate. I hope it will just be around 5-6 years.

Fantastic interview and info, thanks sir Oscar!
