Mike, I had kept them in bags, but when we left Uganda in 2018, they were transplanted to the farm, and more or less left to fend for themselves. I am pretty sure they could have fruited faster  :) They seem very hardy and are doing well even when planted in heavy clay soils. Definitely a keeper.!

My trees started fruiting a year or two ago, not sure as I wasn't around. But the boys at the farm liked them a lot. Managed to get a single fruit to our friend in Germany, but didn't taste it myself - will do so next time. The correct name is Mimusops balata, as both M. commersonii and M. maxima are synonyms.

My trees are upright by the way, thanks for the seeds Mike.!

With a bit of luck, I will be heading to my farm in Tropical Africa in July and are therefore looking seeds to purchase of various Durians, Green Sapote and Mamey Sapote.

Mail address is Denmark.

kind regards, Søren

Are you going to go back? Are you in the Netherlands now?

Denmark, been there a year. Will head back to the farm in July if all goes well, and I am planning to bring a few new species with me  ;D

It could be we have about three to four months dry season here in Northern Uganda.

John, I would love a couple of seedlings next time you the farm  ;D

They normally get slightly bigger for the following fruiting. Are yours in the swamp Oscar, or on higher ground?

Mine fruited. I liked the taste, was just disappointed that they are small and not so much to eat. But the taste was kind of like passionfruit.

The funny thing, in Uganda it's the pulp people love it for. Never heard anyone used the seeds as a spice, but probably more common in the rural areas

I’ve had this plant for 5 years in Nor Cal and no flowers whether in ground protected or open , or in a pot. Curious about the spice from seeds flavor like the leaf smell?

It's loved by most in East Africa, but it's not sweet and I remember Anestor wasn't crazy about it. Would love to hear what people think. It's also a very plant.

I got around 10 mature trees, but still in pots. Hopefully they will be transplanted to Gayaza next July... Stay tuned :-)

I would think moist would be better. I planted a seed soon after consuming the fruit (I believe it was a day or so after eating the fruit) and it did sprout within a month. Perhaps whoever sources your seeds could put some in moist vermiculite? Good luck!

Are you on Facebook - Eric from CENDEP in Cameroon is probably the source of 95% of all junglesop seeds distributed the last five or so years. Find him searching the name: wirsiy fondzenyuy

I have problems with all Anacardium spp. until transplanted to the ground, after which they take off in an almost insane growth speed  8)

That my friend is a Malaysian purple and the one I had grew strongly, looked lovely and produced fruit very well. Unfortunately the fruit quality left much to be desired and the tree volunteered for mulch patrol.I don't have enough space for looks to triumph over substance.

I'm not impressed either, but as many of them probably are seedlings variety can be expected.

durio mansonii doesn't produce edible fruit - correct?

Looks great; please assist with some scientific names.

I grow them , it is an acquired taste , fruits very fast at 40 - 50 cm tall and plentiful a couple of times a year , beautiful dwarf plant , likes lots of water and full sun. Perfect for growing in a planter .

I have a single tree and look forward to see it fruit. It is more than 50cm by now - I remember Ken Love liked it.?!

Did you manage to id the plant?

They shouldn't take long to germinate, but will hesitate to give you a time interval.

Thanks for the report Mike; I'm happy that Arusha came out in top; it is a great fruit. I find it to be a very heavy producer as well, and should be partiel self-pollinating since I still get plenty of fruits after removing one of my two trees (with no other soursops nearby); currently about 50 some big. Only downside is low resistance to aphids, which might not be a problem where you are.

Pretreatment was correct, probably most has died due to drying out. They are fast growers, make sure the medium is not "wet" and you will be fine. Takes shade in the beginning.

Thanks for sharing; any noticeable differences between the different ecotypes of S. comorensis at this stage - germination rate, leaf-shapes, speed of growths etc.

Soren the landolphia comorensis "Mourad" seedlings germination was 100%, shoot sprout display red

The Landolphia comorensis "small seed large fruit" had a 90 % germination, both are the most aggressive growth during juvenile phase and not attack by cutworm like dyer kirkii & senegalensis. Mourad's seeds are larger than your Soren and they both display similar resilient growth and take my abuse of moving them around to find what they like.  They like partial shade but after the second leave mature green I move them to more Sunlight gradually and they seem to takeoff. ⛅️ In more sun they grow bushy bramble like with multiple suckers.☀️ In full shade they display more of a vinny liana characteristic ready to climb up a tree.☔️🌿🌴

An update on the vines?
