Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Patinoa Almirajo

Thank you for the info, what about humdity , How humide is your area? Has it fruited for you ?

Humidity of my area right now is very low, around 10%-25%. In the rain season it can reach 90% so P. Almirajo can comfortably thrive in a wide range of humidity although it will need enough heat.

Nice seedling. It is from the Choco region of Colombia so I don't think it is very cold hardy. On the contrary it withstands 30-37C in my area without issue.

Covid is spreading so posting service in many places are limited. Notice that the virus can live many days on the surface. It's better be patient these days.

Treat them as your crush:

+ prepare good medium to prevent mold: vermiculite 4-8mm, water regularly with diluted Hydrogen peroxide (google this to get the right mix)
+ sow 1-2cm deep
+ place in a shady and clear place
+ forget about her returning your love, be patient until she calls you back

May I ask what's the deference in taste between "Redondo" cultivar and other Capuassu vars?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Achachairu

The color is a lot lighter yellow than my achachairu, which are closer to orange. The shape on the photo is also different than my achachairu which are more elongated in shape. Unfortunately in Bolivia they use the common name of achachairu for almost ALL the species of Rheedias (now called garcinias). So it's possible it's a different species.

Maybe immature? Like people picking up durios when the fruits are immature/close to ripe for longer shelf life.

Hello, who know Jim west

Jim doesn't sell seeds to new customers anymore. Besides, sending seeds out of Ecuador is prohibited nowadays. It's nearly impossible.

Several Lecythis species are sold abundantly in Belem and Santarem. I think Oscar is correct.

I believe this is "Talisia floresii".

I'm glad they are still alive Oscar.The local Council planted 3 of them in a row in the park and they all seem to be females. They still fruit however but fruit are not full size. My male and female trees are in flower now so Im hoping a few fruit will set.

Looks sweet!

Vitor is a big loss for all of us! We miss you all!


Very big loss indeed!

Looks like "Annona montana"

Could be, the pictures online do have a closer resemblance to the fruit I have. Whats throwing me off is the little spikes on most pictures, mines has smooth skin. Maybe removed for shipping?

I think so, or the spikes were all broken when the fruit was in transit.

Looks similar to "Couepia bracteosa"

It has a high chance of being Pouteria torta. Maybe it is some cultivar with big size and thick rind.
