Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: when ro plant out snakeskin fruit?

Salak can be planted out once it has 4-5 leaves.  In nature it grows as an understory plant and likes shade.  But, lots of shade is going to slow down development.  Some farms limit shade completely and use lots of fertilizer, more sun more fertilizer. 
We grow salak in light shade, you certainly see shadows.  In our climate it can begin flowering in 3 years.
I have 3 species and 2 varieties of salacca salacca and the culture seems the same.
are you growing dwarf Bali salak by chance? I got seeds of it which have started growing nicely. I might replace my other salaks in ground with it since it's supposed to only need one plant to fruit.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Cola Nut Species
« on: July 21, 2019, 09:36:20 PM »
Is anyone growing any cola nuts besides the common Cola Nitidia and cola acuminata?

I am growing cola pachycarpa, cola cauliflora, cola ficifolia, cola lepidota, Cola lateritia, Cola laurifolia, cola subbostifolia, cola chlamydantha, and many more.

I'm interested in anyone else's experiences whose grown these, anymore information on growth habit, and anyone's whose tried the fruits. I was told by someone in Cameroon that the fresh pods at least of cola lepidota can be stored for weeks or even months so they might have some large scale potential.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Pouteria sp. "Maco" + Pouteria Pilosa
« on: July 19, 2019, 01:47:52 PM »
Anyone growing either of these species? I have 1 large pouteria maco and about 7 large pouteria pilosa plants. Any suggestions on spacing?

I have access to a property growing a mango tree that they call and looks like what's called and sold as pineapple mango here.
Its extremely sweet to the point some people dont like it because it's too sweet for them. I like them more than any other mangoes I've had.

I'm not sure how to confirm thats what you are looking for, but here's photos of the fruits.

Are 2 trees required to produce fruit?
Yes but some trees are hermaphrodite and can produce by itself.

@Ertdude what's the best variety and when will you have those seeds available?
[/quote]The better variety just has larger fruit maybe a bit sweeter. I don't know when I will have them since there's different varieties every time I find them so its kinda just by chance when I find the better ones.

Is it common propagation by seeds? How long does it take to fruit?
It takes 7-10 years from seed. However its not necessarily true to seed, so I think at least in Puerto Rico its common to have grafted plants. I think the grafts they take are also hermaphrodite so you only need one plant.

Selling fresh quenepa seeds. These are from a very good sweet and larger variety here. Its probably the 2nd best. It's just not as large as the best one here.

$2 a seed + shipping or 10 seeds for $15 free shipping in the US. International varies.

I also sold out the last batch of fruits and just collected over 100 fresh ones today. I'll make sure to post a photo of them all.

Looks like the season may be slowing down since some trees don't have anymore pods and wont be producing until next year.

Thank you very much! Just got mine in the mail. That was some fast shipping and carefully packed too, even though they'd probably handle all sorts of rough handling. Had to crack the pods open outside on concrete.

It does live up to the name, but nothing that permeates a strong odor throughout the room like guava, jackfruit, or durian. The pulp texture reminds me exactly of protein powder and the taste has a nice vanilla custard flavor. Can't wait to try them in a shake.
No problem thanks a lot as well glad you were able to enjoy them so far. I actually haven't tried them in shake form yet. I also wanna try an ice cream made with it too.

I have it near a box of local mangoes and the mangoes are way stronger than the Algarroba.


Hey just looking to buy Jaboticaba that are really big, or they can be smaller and close to fruiting/fruiting.

If you have any other large tropical plants I'd probably be interested as well.

Need to be able to ship to Puerto Rico or Connecticut

Got more fruit

over 300 fruits now, find more falling everyday

Pricing updated was way too high. Over 100 fruits available now.

Worldwide shipping or USA only?

Any idea on how tropical these are on a scale of  Cherimoya to breadfruit ha ha?
I will ship anywhere on Earth. And I think it's closer to cherimoya it can handle subtropical weather, here's more information

Found over 100 fruit reduced price to $2 each.

Still have a lot

Can anyone identify these 2?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Garcinia ID
« on: June 12, 2019, 08:33:03 AM »
looks a lot like g. hombroniana
Could be G.hombroniana. Definetly not G.xanthocymus.

That's what I thought it looks like my other seashore mangosteen plants but wasn't 100% sure. Any idea on what the spacing should be for both garcinia hombriana and garcinia xanthochymus from other trees? I have a lot I plan on planting.

« on: June 12, 2019, 07:30:31 AM »
Pretty sure it's either garcinia hombriana, garcinia xanthochymus or giant leaf madruno.

I planted about 50 seeds 1 started germinating recently after only a few weeks after planting. I'll try to post a photo today.

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Selling Sweet Tamarind seeds
« on: June 05, 2019, 11:59:48 PM »
This is the sweet tamarind variety. These fruits were grown in Puerto Rico and were from a tree in my town.

Selling bundles of 5 seeds for $6 + shipping. I can possibly discount shipping or the seeds if a large quantity are bought. I have multiple bags of tamarind.

Hi Ertdude,

Message abimael777, he should be able to help you out with some of those trees. He's also located in PR. :)

Hey thanks for the suggestion, I've bought a decent amount of plants and a lot of fruit from him before, but I haven't gotten any replies from him in a couple months.
