The cost of these seeds is expensive because each fruit have only one seed, and it traveling more than 8000 km to arrive in my hands, These fruit are only commercialized in the Amazon

Today  ( 26 february 2015) I received again Allantoma lineata, the nut have a mix taste with coco, hazelnut and brazilian nut
A true delicacy of nature , I think is the unique nut of the world that can be open with hands
Only few seeds, this tree is increasingly rare in nature

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Longkong or Duku or Duku-Langsat or Langsat
« on: September 11, 2014, 09:30:00 PM »

Some years ago, I bought seeds from Longkong from Thailand,
Can someone confirm if are really Longkong by the pictures ?
At the time I received this email the seller :

Dear Ricardo,
We can provide the seed to you but I have to consider the risk to reward ratio. Their are 0-5 seeds/kg. of fruit and they are difficult to clean.

He said, maybe no have one only seed in a fruit kilo
