Tropical Fruit Discussion / Lost label/Fruit ID
« on: October 09, 2022, 01:11:20 AM »
Hi all,

I lost the label on this seedling. I think I know what it might be, but just wanted to know what people on the forum think it is. Thanks in advance!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Seedling ID question
« on: July 19, 2022, 12:15:36 PM »
Hi all,

During my recent move, some tags got removed from some of my seedlings - the usual story for those like me- with what seems like thousands of seedlings :)

Anyway, Iím wanting to approach graft a bulala seedling to my very under-performing sibabat pulasan, which Iím afraid will end up dying if I do nothing for it.

My tags were lost on what I believe are my bulala seedlings. The leaves on them are a bit different than the pulasan leaves. In this picture, the pulasan is the larger plant with lighter green leaves.

In your opinion. does the smaller plant look like bulala (Nephelium phillipensis)?

I was expecting compound leaves, but perhaps the seedling is too small yet to start producing those. Anyway, I appreciate everyoneís opinion on this.


Tropical Vegetables and Other Edibles / Taro ID Question
« on: July 13, 2022, 11:58:18 AM »
I was at the Farm Supply Cooperative in Hilo, and saw a plant labeled ďSamoan TaroĒ. Iím a sucker for new types of tropical vegetables, and Taro especially, so I bought it. 

After I got home and planted it though, I started wondering if this is an edible plant at all. The leaves look more arrow-head shaped. My plant identifier even identified it as Green Arrow Arum (Peltandra Virginica), which it described as a poisonous plant.

Can anyone know knows Taro well look at my pics and see if they recognize it as an edible Taro? Thanks in advance!

Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone had any nice size grafted Pulasan trees for sale (to be shipped to or for local pickup on the Big Island, Hawaii).

Iím looking for cultivars including Seebabat/Silbabat or possibly Koneng. Any good tasting freestone variety would be great though.

Thanks in advance and thanks to all who are active in this great forum!
