This Durian  was found in the forest. The leaves are like the edible durian. There is only a thin membrane over the seeds.

In Kerala,India, it is usual to make a pickle with immature mangoes, chopped into quarter inch bits,with salt and chili powder and a little vinegar. Mangoes which are a couple of weeks from maturity can be peeled and cooked with sugar to make an excellent jam, if thinned with more water, it tastes like apple sauce.

If somebody on the forum could explain how to prepare branches for scion and how to package them, eg. Sapodilla, Longan, etc, I would be very grateful.

Hello, Do pawpaw trees require chill to fruit?

Hello, Petai seeds are commonly cooked with shrimp in Malaysia and does taste nice, it is supposed to flush out yr kidneys. But  next day yr piss smells so horrible that you will have to clean yr toilet a dozen times before the smell goes.

Hello, Salak Madu is a hydridised variety and so the seeds do not fruit true. This is what I was told by a farmer near Yogyakartha, when I bought the fruits and asked him about planting the seeds. He told me that all the trees in his farm are grafted ones.

Hello Kenny, My tree was about seven years old. I bought it as a four year old from a nursery.


A photo of my plant.

Yes, I use a soluble fert with 13:27:27.  In 2013 when I started using this in August, I got fruits from Sept to Jan. So in 2014 I did not use this fert and I hardly got any fruits. So in Dec I started applying and now since Feb I am having fruits.

Miracle needs full sun. Applying high PK fert gives fruits for a longer season.

I got a lot of polyemryonic seedlings when I sprouted about 50 avocado seeds for rootstock. Which of the shoots is true to the parent?

I have Miracle fruit plants which have flowered in 18 months. Fertilise with high P:K: soluble Fert, like "GreenCare" every two weeks.

I do not know whether it is polyembriyonic, but what Ajesh says is true. I have a tree grown from seed and many of my friends have trees grown from seeds and all fruiting true. Also I have never come across a "priyoor" grafted seedling in the nurseries, it is always seeded ones. This mango is found only in central Kerala. The raw mango tastes like Gauva so it is also called "Gauva mango" in Malayalam.

Hello Isolona, Do you still have Annonidium manni seeds? Where are you situated?

This jackfruit is called "thamara chakka" in Malayalam, which literally means "Lotus Jack".

Hello Roy, I am from Kerala. Do you have Garcinia seeds other than Camboge, Indica, Hombroniana, Xanthocymus, and Madruno? A reply will be highly appreciated. Chandramohan.
