Lepidota is not from Brazil. It is native to Venezuela.

Giampaolo,that link didn't work.  Been after this one for a long time. Even people living in areas of origin have never seen it. I'm thinking possibly it is an endangered, or maybe extinct species?

Real question is how old is that map? And do any of those sparse occurences in Brazil and Suriname still exist?

Did you look at the dates from those finds? They range from 1951 to 1990. Notice that all more recent finds in late 80's were in Venezuela. Still most recent find was 25 years ago. I wonder how much of that forest still exists? That is probably the reason that fruit is so rare.

Hi Victor!
I received the seeds yesterday. They arrived in perfect condition, and most of them already sprouted!
I have also noticed that u sent some gifts, which I am very grateful. I already put the seeds in containers to form seedlings.
Man, I was impressed with the size of the seeds of Pouteria Laevigata  :o That tree must take as long as the the rarest Chrysophyllum Imperiale to produce fruit, and grow so high as imperiale too, no?

Keep doing the good work my friend!  8)

Hi Vitor

Can you give an explanation as to how Helicostylis tomentosa tastes?
The few places I have read describe it as "excellent" but nothing on texture or taste.
Theferns gives it a 4 banana taste rating which is not really common for wild fruit:)

Its dioecious and low germination rates apparently so the odds are stacked against me but even if i just get one to sprout and grow its really
nice to have lore on the fruit that the plant could potentially yield, its the collectors mindset I like to collect the most interesting best tasting species and
 I like to know how the fruit would taste even if i never actually manage to fruit it! ;D

Man dude you have some interesting stuff I have to stay away from your front page my fiancee keeps telling me to buy less seeds there will be no space when we move in together he he

Hi Stuart.
Sorry about the delay in responding.
Comment about taste is too complex. As we know the palate of each person is unique.
I am increasingly excited and obsessed with finding and experience new species. It is difficult to explain the quality of taste of the new fruits I experienced this last expedition. Many species have so many qualities that easily surpass in flavor, many grown and marketed fruit.
Naucleopsis, Crysophyllum sp., P. opposita and many other Sapotaceae, Lacunaria, Helicostylis species, Pourouma species, species Couma, Tetragastris species, Theobroma species, Garcinia and other species that do not remember now, are very good. Are fruits that you feel like eating a fruit after another until you can no longer eat.
Unfortunately most are very poorly known, and I believe only the indigenous people have the practice of eating these fruits.
Specifically on Helicostylis, the plant is very beautiful and the fruit has a beautiful and different, compared with the common species known. It has a texture and excellent flavor, is slightly acid, very tasty. What differentiates H. tomentosa  H. scabra flavor, the flavor is scabra which is more pronounced, but tomentosa has a larger amount of pulp. H. scabra is rarer and more difficult to find. Although a sad feature on Helicostylis is that the two species are becoming increasingly hard to find. Only in regions where there was no deforestation. Wood has good features and is highly sought after by loggers, what is becoming hard to find.
It is strange that few people showed interest in Helicostylis, a friend in Brazil was very excited to get seeds. He was looking for many years seeds of this species.
Any other questions, let me know.
Best regards,

Vitor
