Purely tropical vine for  humid climate.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Mamey ID and recomendation.
« on: February 03, 2024, 08:49:58 PM »
So, it seems like in Indonesia they have all Florida mamey varieties. I got Lorito tree, and few days later saw this local video with Lorito mamey that has these unappetizing looking fibers. Although reviewer still likes the fruit very much. Does this look like authentic Lorito as in Florida??

Now thinking to get another tree. Cepeda (Sepeda). I was told locally that it's also bright red of excellent quality. Possibly this variety to extend season. Does Cepeda and Lorito fruit at the same time? Does Cepeda also have these fiber hairs? Is it worth getting over Lorito?

Black Thorn and Musang King both 6 seeds for $30 plus $19 shipping, Pulasan 6 seeds $18 and $15 shipping. Musang King seeds are from ultra premium grade as they called. I stayed in Singapore for few weeks, when my friend arrived we tried very best durians. All durians seeds are from very same boxes as shown. Seeds travelled with me and will be shipped from Europe, so should reach all destinations much faster than from Asia.

Edit: Indonesian Postal service not allowing any seed shipments anymore unlike when I was able to ship in December. Nothing is available for sale anymore!

You are in the post office, but don't want to tell clerk that there are seeds inside the package.  What do you tell to a clerk? Sometimes they are very insistent to know what inside the package. How do you answer?

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Australian abius available
« on: April 08, 2022, 10:06:59 AM »
Anyone looking for high quality abius let me know. It's free to anyone with whom I interacted over the years. Want to spread higher quality around. Just pay for actual shipping after seeds have been send. Seeds are from Mike T, like Z4 and other superior Australian selections. There might be few random seeds from Noel ( Florida Green Man) in my seed pile from 8 trees. His seedling might be slightly superior above all but it's only possible to determinate tasting right after another. Trees grown semi wild without fertiliser. Would probably been bigger if taken care of properly.   

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Growing Kesusu tips ( Prainea Limpato)
« on: March 20, 2022, 09:52:02 AM »
As many just starting cultivating this, most importantly please remember to leave lots of space. Tree likes to spread very wide. In a picture 7 year old tree, from end of this branch to the trunk 22 feet already and still growing. Tree is more drought resistant than believed. 2 months no rain, and absolutely no signs of stress. Not dropping any leaves. And fruits fairly fast. 6 years from seeds. Monoecious. Good luck  :)

Tropical Fruit Discussion / ants farming?
« on: February 04, 2019, 05:10:23 AM »
Anyone knows what's going on here?  Usually I see different species of ants farming scale or mealy bugs in an activity like this. But no bugs visible with naked eyes apart from ants of course.

Recently traveled from US to Europe, with a whole bunch of Sweet Tart mangoes. Just wanted family and friends to taste arguably world's best mango. Anyone in mango growing areas of Southern Europe want seeds, let me know. Seeds are free, just pay actual shipping. I know people here have hard time accessing newer varieties, simply helping you out. Sweet Tart is poly.

The answer isn't clear from Google searches.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Historic marang
« on: May 13, 2018, 08:17:22 PM »
One of my most anticipated trees finally opened its bank account. This could be historic tree. Almost 100% sure it is first fruiting marang in Sri Lanka and possibly on entire Indian subcontinent. I know there are good number of young trees in Kerala, but to my knowledge none fruited yet.
I heard various time frames for first fruiting anywhere from five to nine years, but this fellow did it in 3.5 years since planting as tiny two footer. It grows at least twice as fast as my other marang trees. Not sure why is that. If this is genetic trait, perhaps offsprings are worth cultivating.
Also, I may have been too aggressive with pruning. Young tree was bushy and crowded, so a lot of new branches drifted downwards trying to make U turn around branches above while seeking the sun. Now I got a bunch of fruits almost touching the ground. Easy night time snack for a wildlife  :)

Edit. Not available anymore

This is wholesale offer only.  Have remaining seeds, don't have time for small orders or USDA paperwork. Make reasonable offer and take everything. EMS only. 18 Musang King seeds and 7 "Ice Cream" also called "Kuching Tidur", translates sleeping cat.  Legitimate five star variety.  Apparently even Lindsey never came across this one.

Macapuno has no water. Seems like Kopyor variety from Indonesia is not the same,  but the flesh is similar, very soft. Can you Indonesian friends tells us briefly what are they talking about? Seems like at the end of the video they compare it to Macapuno.

I had these seeds reserved for US forum member with whom I was doing trade. So it happened he mailed his permits too late, I already left Malaysia, next few days are busy, next time I can mail these seeds are on Tuesday. It's not good enough for him because seeds will almost certainly arrive sprouted and thus destroyed by US customs.
So, anyway these seeds for anyone to take. You will receive exactly the same 17 seeds as in picture. $90, EMS express shipping included. Seeds come from several very expensive durians, plus EMS isn't cheap. So this is still reasonable value, despite relatively high cost.

Search comes up only for products in jars.

Could anybody from Florida suggest few very good to exellent rated varieties that have wide spreading, umbrella type growth habit?  Good vigor would be helpful.
I'm familiar with flavors of most top tiers, just not sure about growth habit of half of them.

Offering Musang King seeds. This is generally considered king of durians, and it has been the champion so far this year. It's very expensive durian, and usually one fruit will only have about 3 bigger seeds. The rest are too small and shrunken to develop into healthy trees. Only bigger seeds, 6 for $85. The price includes EMS express shipping with tracking number for most of the world.  Also Red Prawn seeds, 7 for $80, EMS included. For USA order will ship directly to the receiver only. Too much hassle shipping to inspection stations. Shipping from Malaysia.
Remote countries like S. America, West Indies or South Pacific maybe have additional shipping charge. Let me know your destination first.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Jackfruit grandchild.
« on: January 07, 2017, 03:37:01 AM »
Let's say a seedling from awesome jackfruit turns out just ok, than can a seedling of a new parent have a good chance to revert to a grandparent greatness?

I'm scraping my plants for certain areas of the farm due to drought flare ups in the last few years and now just want to fill up the area with jackfruit seedlings because it is plant and forget it kind of tree. I'm in need for top quality jackfruit seeds,  and so it happens couple Amber seedling fruits are ripening. If they turn out just so so,  not sure if I should be proceed with seedlings. Don't want to fill up entire area with junk. Any ideas?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Is this tree doomed?
« on: August 13, 2016, 01:54:51 AM »
I was wondering what causes this and see if there is a treatment option? The tree is chempadak but I guess any jackfruit treatment in similar situation should work.

Making this post on request of kh0110 in another thread. This is technique I was taught in India earlier this year. First video is how to remove bud. When you remove actual bud from the wood behind, one should be able to hear barely audible clicking sound at the moment of separation. I did not want to upload conversation, so excuse me for cheesy music I put on top.

! No longer available

I did not make other videos or pictures of the process, so following videos is what I found on the internet. How to make an empty patch to place a bud on top. The people in the videos are a bit slow, but experienced grafter does it with amazing speed. From taking bud out, to finishing entire process process with tape under one minute.

Finished "product" should look something like this. For some reason I was told no parts of bud wood, should touch cambium of the seedling. Tape should be removed after 40 days. Once growth has been pushed from the side, leaves emerged and hardened, one should top off old leader to allow this bud sprout to become new trunk of the tree. The same technique can be used on nearly all species, especially on hard to graft species like rambutan and pulasan.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Passion fruit id please
« on: June 11, 2016, 08:04:05 PM »
Basically, I just want to know if these are suitable for my climate, whether they are tropical or subtropical variety? They were found next to cherimoyas and retails for almost the same price.
These are by far the best passion fruits I have come across. Very pretty, biggest, sweetest and soft seeds. Skin or rather shell is semi hard. Peals kind of like boiled egg before you come to a second very thin white layer.

This is probably readily available in Indonesia. I want seeds from a tree with exceptional genetics that produces a lot more liters per day than other palms in the area.
