International Tropical Fruit Garden

Im agronomist & mercenary parkranger for the AWDF (african wildlife defence force), ceo of Nutrecul agroforestry and landowner (50.000ha)

I'm in the horticulture sector since 2000. and now thinking of setting up a new type of botanical garden. A 'Tropical fruit garden'.

I'm wondering if there is an interest for to work with me for to collect all tropical fruitplants and trees from arround the globe and plant on a 1000ha field?

We have seen EDENPROJECT in the UK and many botanical gardens , but none of them specialised in jungle food trees.

It sounds like there should already be a wealth of fruiting plant material that Roy Danforth was instrumental in planting in Loko and Kanana.  That would probably be the best source to get nice fresh seeds for your project.  I am sure that members on the forum would also be open to helping you in your venture, especially if there was any opportunity for seed exchange.

Jean , Danforth and Noren are not in the Congo anymore . They kinda disappeared from the face of the earth as far as I know . They published  a cute little book called : Congo Native Fruits , covering 25 of the best and a short description of an other 25 . Picture attached.

They didn't disappear off the face of the earth. I just got a seed order from one of them, so i know at least one is alive! Just not in the Congo.

We have seen EDENPROJECT in the UK and many botanical gardens , but none of them specialised in jungle food trees.

Pretty big chunk of land - it gotta be a lot cheaper in DRC than here in Uganda?

What sort of import regulations are there in congo (aka, can you take live plants, or only seeds)? Is this a nonprofit or for-profit venture? I bet you could get interest by offering to send seeds of local species, most collectors are rather deficient in African species (at least I sure am! The only two of my ~80 that I have that are native to Africa are miracle fruit and tamarind, aka, nothing particularly exotic!). You might want to consider making a "Wanted" and "Available" list.  Or if what you want is "everything", then perhaps a "Already have" list instead of a "Wanted" list  ;)

the botanical fruit garden i want t set up is just for privat use (collection). congo is corrupt so no import rules ;)
