WTB red fleshed Bouea
« on: May 21, 2019, 04:58:53 PM »
I have seen references on line to red fleshed sweet Bouea macrophylla from Indonesia known as "ramania pipit" and "ramania tembaga".
 However I have had no luck tracking these down nor have I talked to anyone who has encountered these red fleshed sweet maprang.  Does anyone have access to seeds of the sweet red fleshed ones?

I have seen references to these types (not sure if they are actual cultivars or just local variants) in a few places, here is a link to one:
https://uses.plantnet-project.org/en/Bouea_macrophylla_(PROSEA)

The article seems to imply that they are found in Kalimantan but it would seem reasonable to think that they might be found elsewhere on Borneo as well...

Lance, if your friend in Indonesia could give any info on these (even if he cannot get them), I would appreciate it.

Maprang is pretty good already, a red flesh variety!  that would be huge.

There are four varieties of sweet Maprang/Ramania, Ramania pipit, Ramania hintalu, Ramania tembaga and
Ramania harang.
Those ramania are wild species, available in South Borneo around Meratus mountains.
But now is not on season.

Details about these Indonesian ramania is very "sketchy" (incomplete).  Can you tell us more about their characteristics?  (flesh color, size, sweetness / flavor, amount of flesh, etc)  Can you supply seeds of any of these in season?  If so, when is the typical season? 

Thanks,
John

I'll try to search it next season, fruiting season is on about january - march.

- Ramania pipit: Red flesh colored, sweet taste.
- Ramania hintalu: Rounded fruit shape, large size, smooth yellow fruit skin colored sweet taste.
- Ramania tembaga and Ramania harang: Yellow skin colored with black spots, rather small in size, sweet taste.
- And one more variety Ramania anggur, not sure whether the variety is different or it is another name for one of the varieties above.
Ramania anggur has oval small size, orange skin colored, sweet taste.
