I had seeds years back and shared with several members; now about 10 seedlings. Native to Uganda.

Yes, there are some variations within this species in the look of the fruit.

Has to be grafted Raul !!! I hate these guys who can just go to a nursery and buy a grafted plant that will fruit in 1 2 3... offense guys , I am just jealous ....we here in Mexico have to start everything from seed and wait xxxxx years . Fortunately the next generation of Mexican Rare Fruit Fanatics will benefit from out efforts .

I know what you mean Luc - we are in the same boat here in Uganda.

Temperate Fruit Discussion / Re: The muscadines are in
« on: August 26, 2016, 06:31:58 AM »
It's been a LONG wait (6 years)  for my vines to mature but, the wait is over! I've been eating grapes for the last week and it's been just like being a kid again gorging on Concords in my neighbor and relatives yards.

Today was the best day yet, and there's a lot more on the vines for the next week at least.

Anyone else in the South growing muscadines?

Photos or it never happened :-)

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Garcinia paniculata

These are the ones Roy had listed as G. sopsopia, correct?  If I recall correctly, these have been lumped with paniculata but are supposedly superior to paniculata from what I have heard.  Mine (as well as my other Indian Garcinias, kydia & morella) have been growing well but slowly -- however, I have been growing them too shady & need to get them some more light.  Some of these Indian Garcinia were very slow to germinate.


Garcinia sopsopia is the correct name and Garcinia paniculata a synonym.

Compared to many other species; Jaboticaba transplant easily and in my opinion don't show a lot of stress - follow the suggestions above or transplant during rainy season where air humidity is higher.

I never saw Soncoya pollinated in anyway except by human hands here in south Florida.

I have two flowering trees with est. 40m distance between them - done so for several years without a single fruit.

Entebbe, Uganda has the only known Durians growing free-land at 1,134 m (3,720 ft) above sea-level. They receive an average annual rainfall of 1,626 mm which is enough for fruit production. But likely temperatures could be lower, air-humidity higher or rain fall more evenly spread through-out the year.

If you lost a Cacao to drought, I doubt a Durian will have favorable odds..

A measuring tape or ruler could do wonders on that photo....

Nice to see Ajesh; how many trees do you have?

Is this similar to what we West Africans call alligator pepper, Aframomum daniellii? I have only ever used the seeds as a spice, I had no clue you could eat the fruits like that. If you have any more seeds I may have to buy some. ;D

There is a number of different species growing here in Uganda, and most of them are also utilized - though on a smaller scale - as spices. But for all, the pulp is very nice and consumed fresh.

The fresh seeds have been removed from the pulp, and are ready to be mailed. Please PM if any else are interested in exchanging seeds.

Bought a bunch of Aframomum pods on the road to Kabale a few days ago. Due to the size variation of the pods I suspect several species are present.

Luc; how does it compare with Eugenia lutescens?

Is it true or close to true from seed?

Would probably depend on the generation number from the first crossbreed tree; in the beginning it is likely not stable but will be so in later generations of selective breeding. Question remain if it is a true hybrid or not.?

About 110-120 days now.  How much light is optimum?

Good question - I got plenty of fruits in near full sunlight. I can see it is about to reach the roof with more sunlight - perhaps then it will flower?

No, but perhaps the amount of sun is on the low side? How old is the vine?

Growing in constant shade?
