Tropical Fruit Discussion / Garcinia Dulcis vs Xanthochymus
« on: March 16, 2023, 10:22:59 PM »
I had some G. Dulcis at the Hilo Arboretum today and it was pretty good. Some mango flavor and not overly sour, but for the flesh near the rind. I'm interested in how to tell Dulcis apart from xanthochymus because I have some seedlings I need to ID. The leaves look a bit different but there wasn't a xanthochymus there to compare to. The tree was loaded though. We almost had a couple fruits splat on our heads.

I got this fruit from a roadside fruit stand in South Kona. Its about the size of a baseball and is highly aromatic. One of the best things I've ever smelled. The smell is somewhat reminiscent of an apple but also very floral. Will post pics of the inside when I cut it open, hopefully when its ripe.

Just got home from Hawaii tropical fruit growers conference. They had this fruit there but no label. No idea what it is but thick skin and slight acid taste with the flavor of honey. Not much flesh to seed.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Red mammee apple seedling (Mammea Americana)

I noticed the other day this popped up and I was pretty intrigued. The other seeds shot up green and I've never seen a red one. Granted, I haven't germinated too many mammee apple seeds yet. Wondering if anyone else has seen a red seedling.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Garcinia ID

This fruit was sold as Garcinia Cowa but does not match pictures on google. I'm assuming it is garcinia but I could be wrong. Flavor is similar to apricot with small amount of astringency. Fruit size is a bit larger than a quarter.

I was watching this video and their jackfruit seeds are about five times bigger than any jackfruit seed I've seen. I'm really interested in growing one for our food forest if anyone could sell me seeds. Thanks!

Edit: you can see the seeds in the video at 6:30

I found this vine growing out front with purple berries, and they are green unripe. Hopefully the picture makes it through. Please let me know if it's deadly poison or not. Thanks!

Location is south Kona Hawai'i
