Tropical Fruit Discussion / Another rewarding Borneo fruit trip
« on: December 12, 2018, 01:17:10 PM »
Still here hunting for kutejensis. Bummed the Kesusu were not ripe , but still have seen and eaten some great fruits, my second time to Borneo. Thanks to frank Sekiya in 2003 for inspiring me to come here/ only in recent years did I make it a reality. These new tropical fruit lover elitists like the Ďfit shortie eatsí people act like itís something new that Borneo is a hot spot for rare tropical fruits when really people like Frankie were coming here decades ago to gather seeds and budwood to bring back to Hawaii. Anyways , Iím surely hooked and will be back for round 3, Kalimantan edition maybe next time

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Trip to Borneo was a success
« on: January 26, 2018, 02:03:18 AM »
I will say musang king in Kuala Lumpur was some of th best fruit tasting of the whole
Trip. I spent 6 weeks traveling around with my gf who is also into fruits. Anyways, back to musang king. Is it really worth the price ? (Of around $12 per kilo). The answer is yes but the price is definitely high. For me, I really like arancillo in Davao and the taste is similar to musang king , bitter sweet, creamy texture. And price in peak season is only a dollar or 2 per kilo there for the best quality arancillo

We sent seeds back to Hawaii of Durio gravoelns (3 types/ orange , red and even one that was orange and yellow, , graveolens x zibethinus hybrids (2 types, one red and one orange), Durio oxylenaus , couple types of cempedak and, many dabai seed which were  my favorite new fruit for me. Some of the cempedak we ate were very rich tasting, making even a Marang seem not as flavorful, and a jackfruit boring. the cempedak would give off strong hints of butterscotch and caramel , leaving my mouth feeling coated in sugar. Many of these seed will be going into the ground soon at a friends piece of land on the hamakua coast on big island.

I recommend Borneo to any exotic fruit lover and I plant to go back again at some point to eat Durio kutejensis which we didnít get to try on this trip. Also dabai is a really amazing fruit which I can easily eat a pound or two everyday if they are available. Yet, when it comes to getting to feast on unlimited good quality durian Davao still is top for me

Found this sweet mango in a super market about a week ago in Jakarta. I believe. Gedong gincu Is not the name of the variety but describes it having a bright flesh, as it did. My best guess would be Alphonso. Anyone like to guess?
