Seed from Hawaii what is it?
« on: June 18, 2014, 10:53:46 AM »
Hi all, I've got a plant growing and the seed is from Hawaii, which I collected last year while on "Best of Both Worlds" conference put on by H.T.F.G. & CRFG. Could have been from Big Is. Any help on I.D. appreciated! ;) 8)





I just feed it some balanced fert. just hasn't kicked in yet!

Looks like a Theobroma Cacao?

A member of sapindiceae, perhaps rambutan or lychee. Definitely not theobroma or relatives.

I'd guess it's a rambutan or pulasan.

Bunchosia was my first impression and it sure looks like it to me.
