Great posting, thanks for posting it.  I have had a great interest in African fruits since reading some of Roy Danforth's writings.

I have a couple of questions for you regarding some of the fruit pictured.  I have heard many species of Landolphia initially seem sweet when you taste it and then the taste becomes almost overpoweringly sour.  Is that the case for L. owariensis?  Also, is the viability of Piper guineense seed very short or can it remain viable for a couple of months?
