Selling Stinking Toe Fruit - Algarroba
« on: June 03, 2019, 03:48:17 PM »
Hey I was walking around my land and found a bunch of these on the ground. Theres probably 50+ mature fruiting wild Stinking Toe trees on my land. I know there a few species, but I'm assuming this is the common hymenaea courbaril.

I found over 100 so far all in the same spot. I can do $2 + shipping a fruit, or discounts in bulk.

They fall to the ground when ripe and have a very hard shell, so no damage occurs and they store for a while, these all fell a couple days ago or today.


As I find more I will update this post. Theres so many trees here so save this post if interested in these fruits.

I will ship anywhere on Earth. And I think it's closer to cherimoya it can handle subtropical weather, here's more information

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.

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.

Hey its hymanae courbarii, or another hymanae. Only the fruit pod is "stinky" and I personally dont think it's bad, kind of a sweet protein powder smell.

If you find a source for stink beans I'm interested as well.

Rare Palm Seeds..  But i dont trust them, because ive never bought from them. Hell they dont even have a description for it.
But at least they Differentiate between Nitta. "TreeBean" which is what i have.  Which smell pretty damn stinky when the seeds rot, and i think the roots has a sulphur scent too.

But i want that STINK BEAN.. those gorgeous.. huge.. funky.. big ol' green beans . That grow in a the big long pods.  We might need to find someone from Asia, thats willing to do scion wood. If it takes a long time to develop.

If you find out about RareParlSeeds.com  let me know too..   I have mixed results with Tradewindsfruit viability.  I ordered from 2 things from Fruitlovers.com but the Yoco arrived rotten and only 1 of the 5 Lembah sprouted. So im not sure how i feel about fruitlovers just yet.  eBAY is a freaking disaster. (except for Uncle Chans Garden on eBAY)  everything that guy has sent me sprouted. everything. Though it was Uncle Chans Garden that sold me Parkia Timoriana as Parkia Speciosa.  And dwarf betel nut palm, who knows what the true Areca palm is.

on the note of Climbing Wattle, that i got from Uncle Chans Garden  Cha-Om..  its a short, acacia looking plant.  Its smells like Garlic and Eggs, richly.. not quite to the Burnt Rubber level of sulphur, but strong.  It tastes a little like Broccoli rabe.. Broccoli greens.   They use it in omeletes.  If youre into stinky stuff. 
which reminds me.. id like a Noni bush, but i cant get those to sprout either.

I have bought a lot of seeds from rarepalmseeds including very rare seeds and they have germinated and grown successfully. Same with tradewinds so i would definitely recommend both. the yoco seeds I got also arrived in bad condition from fruitlovers, but other seeds I have gotten like java almond, lemba, bully tree, chicle, and others have sprouted.

Does the whole climbing wattle plant emit an odor, or only parts of it? I am definitely interested in growing that. Noni grows wild here especially on the beach, could possibly send you fruits/seeds/cuttings/plants. I probably grow other plants that emit strong odors I just need to think and go through them.

I only have a couple and they are no where near several feet tall. To me, Cha-Om dont seem to omit an odor until disturbed, and the ones i have that are neglected arent very strong.
But when they are green, and the leaves are soft to the touch, i can smell a pinch between my thumb and finger at arms length.  I didnt have room in my garden so mine have stayed in small pots.
I havent had the chance to use them yet.

I certainly would be interested in some Noni. Keep us updated. Im guess they are hard to germinate because the seed is old? IDK. Fresh Noni, might draw some interest certainly.

Hey, what do you think about that Chicle?

If you like the garlick and sulphur smell,the Toona Sinensis its a verry cold hardy mahogany tree that has edible leaves with strong smell.

I will definitely keep you informed about the Noni, I have read they take a long time to germinate but have never germinated seeds myself.

Only 2 chicle have sprouted and I think I messed up the other 1 so theyre still small. It seems like a very cool plant especially since I read its a dwarf plant. I can provide more information as it gets bigger.

How Big do the Mahogany Family get?


Hey man! I finally got those Parkia Speciosa.  At least they really look like it this time. Pretty damn stinky too.  Thats also a Noni sprout. From Spring.. totally forgot about it.. it just showed. Now to get it through winter. Did your noni ever drop their fruits?
