Saba senegalensis?
« on: August 18, 2018, 03:41:53 PM »
Last month, a friend from Gambia was supposed to bring a bunch of madd fruit for me.  He purchased these:



But, he was able to bring back only one fruit :(.  By the time, this single fruit reached me, it had already began to spoil and looked like this:



Also the fruit had started to ferment.  On cutting it open, it was already spoilt. 



But, I managed to salvage the seed



Finally after nearly a month, a couple of them have sprouted. 



I just want to confirm that this is Saba senegalensis and not some other Landolphia specie.

The primary leaves have started turning brown, but the newer leaves remain fresh. Is this symptoms of over-watering? Should I be worried?
