I believe this is "Talisia floresii".

I'm glad they are still alive Oscar.The local Council planted 3 of them in a row in the park and they all seem to be females. They still fruit however but fruit are not full size. My male and female trees are in flower now so Im hoping a few fruit will set.

Looks sweet!

Vitor is a big loss for all of us! We miss you all!


Very big loss indeed!

Looks like "Annona montana"

Could be, the pictures online do have a closer resemblance to the fruit I have. Whats throwing me off is the little spikes on most pictures, mines has smooth skin. Maybe removed for shipping?

I think so, or the spikes were all broken when the fruit was in transit.

Looks similar to "Couepia bracteosa"

It has a high chance of being Pouteria torta. Maybe it is some cultivar with big size and thick rind.

Sure is a Durio.

Pm sent

Didn't really get a response yet. Did others got their responses?

It's better to contact him directly:

Seeds arrived in great condition with some additional ones and shipping time was only 10 days. Thanks Richard! Hope to hear from you about my next order soon.

Hi Richard I've sent you a PM regarding payment and a new order (and another one in April). Have you recveived it yet?

It looks a lot like Cionosicyos macranthus.

Could someone be able to read the address on the packages sent from Vitor? That should help.

I've heard that this Gustavia macarenensis "must be eaten at the correct stage of ripeness. If you eat it on Tuesday it is under-ripe, hard and tasteless. If you eat it on Thursday it is overripe with a foul odor and taste. On Wednesday it is a great fruit, rich and oily.", from Jim West.

Found this nice fruit on the ground in the forest. Good pulp ratio, sweet taste (the skin leaves a slight back bitter taste in the throat).
I was not able to found the tree.
Any ideas ?

Looks like some Mouriri to me.

Taturuba - Pouteria macrophylla seeds added

May I ask how it tastes?

You've got a great land with a very good condition for various tropical species!

There's one thing is that importing trees/seeds from abroad into Ecuador is challenging. Exporting is easier but things will get as strict as importing soon :(

Looks pretty much like "Terminalia catappa".

This is "Momordica charantia".

It is Annona glabra.

I think chemical kill will trigger a neighborhood war. Using coconut beetle (Rhinoceros) will ensure a slow but peaceful death. Drill some holes in the tree's trunk and put some in.
