The native Americans chew the cooked pulp and left to ferment for 1-2 days to get their traditional everyday drink when they mixed with water. They left to ferment for 8 days to get an alcoholic beverage used to celebrations.
The Peach Palm tree provided important staple food. They consumed both the fruit and the heart of palm. They highly valued the fruit due to its nutritional values.

The fruit is edible after boiling otherwise it contains calcium oxalate and has a trypsin inhibitor.
It is common to simply cook the fruit for 1-3 hours.
To make a fermented beverage today locals mix the cooked flesh with sugar and water and let it to ferment for 1-2 days.
The heart of palm is used raw or cooked to salads, side dishes and to plant based meals that reminds of seafood as the cooked heart of palm has good texture and nice taste.
The seed is oily and have a pleasant coconut-like flavor. It is edible raw. Locals make a drink from the raw seeds adding sugar and water. The germination of this seed normally takes 30-90 days, in some cases 180 days. The seedling gives fruit in 3-4 years.

Do your Bactris gasipaes seeds come from spineless variety or this is just a regular peach palm? Thanks.

Hi,

The Ilama eeds arrived safely and very quickly.  Thank you.  I note there is a plant date of "After Jan 2020" on the envelope.  Is that +9 months after harvesting?  I'm told that germination is much better after a 9-month rest period.

Best regards,
Scott

Thanks for the feedback.  It was harvested in September 2019. I will start experimenting in january with the same batch and email the result to all buyers. It is better not to start planting until I see results. Stay tuned.

Hi, does the Annona diversifolia make fruit that taste the same or very close to the parent tree?  Iím in usda zone 10, are the the Quararibea cordata and Annona diversifolia suitable for my climate?

Got some passionfruit melon again and found a seedless peach palm that had seeds in about 5% of the fruits.
Update: the peach palm is Sold

Theobroma bicolor fruits started to fall from the variety we like the most. These are smaller, more tasty and no mucus on the seeds when soaked.
There was about 8 fruits total on the trees and 4 already fell.
I have the last cupuassu fruit as well.

Available Seeds at FruitLiberty

Pataxte Theobroma bicolor

5 seeds for 15 USD

Hello. I was curious about your practice of soaking and packing in Hydrogen Peroxide.
Is this a diluted water and hydrogen peroxide that you use to soak the seeds in? Or just Hydrogen Peroxide straight from the bottle? And how about for the solution you use to pack the seeds in?
Cheers!



Cupuassu Theobroma grandiflorum

5 seeds for 15 USD



Cassabanana Sicana odorifera

10 seeds for 5 USD
The taste is similar to honeydew melon, with a bigger juicy part. The flesh is harder then melons but still softer and sweeter than pumpkin.
Can be eaten raw and used to make preserves as well as cooked as a vegetable when less ripe.
The plant is a tropical vine that grows easy and fast.

Dear Fruit Monster,

I use 3% solution for both in this country it means straight out of the bottle, in Malaysia they sell 6% so I dilute it.
There are some exceptions, e.g. T. Bicolor, it is so delicate that the 3% burns the tip of the sprout if already present. There I go with 1%

Thanks for your response! That is good information. Knowing how potent a product Hydrogen Peroxide is I presumed the seeds would be burned somehow but I'm proven wrong.
