According to this, glucose consumption can prevent the neuronal cell demise by annonacin. So maybe you should eat a spoonful of sugar with your annonas.

It could be regions that eat annonas are historically poor making refined sugar inaccessible due to  costs. The only sugar available would be in fruit and starches which take longer to metabolize. It should be also noted that these poorer regions probably ate less food. Therefore, it'd be harder to prevent the annonacins from killing the neuronal cells since there wasn't a high enough glucose level. Considering the American diet, I think we have it covered when it comes to glucose consumption. Although, it'd be a lot healthier if you use glucose syrup since sucrose and fructose aren't very good for you.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Which is better, Rambutan or Longan?

I think Rambutan is better tasting especially if the rambutans are free stone, however longans are infinitely easier to grow since they aren't as tropical.

I'm mainly looking for different south east asian bananas.

I've tried a yangmei juice drink at a Taiwanese restuaraunt. It has a herbal taste that is pretty quintessential of chinese medicine. If you're not accustomed to the flavor, you probably won't like yangmei.

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / ISO: Edible Bananas
« on: November 10, 2022, 11:32:36 PM »
I'm looking to buy edible banana varieties.
 I have dwarf cavendish, mysore, california gold, double mahoi, dwarf brazilian, manzano, dwarf namwah, dwarf red, blue java, goldfinger, and gros michel.

It seems strange that the seller won't accept seed permits especially since yangmei isn't on the restricted plants list.

I'll contact them tomorrow and see if they'll let me use them as a reference. Thanks!

I've made a mistake on the pricing, see first post. I'll update the new quoted price unless enough people also want shixia longans. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Okvid, count me in for 1 tree.
I don't think I can deliver all the way to Oakland unless you want to drive down here.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Seedless Lychee Order + Shixia Longan
« on: September 19, 2022, 06:04:44 AM »
I'm planning on halting the order as I've realized that the import permits would be a 588 and not a 587. Lychees and Longans are on the Not Authorized Pending Pest Risk Analysis. This means that they can be imported if there is pest risk analysis done. While they aren't prohibited from import, you do need a 588, something that I don't think I can currently get since I don't know any plant health specialists (somebody who has a relevant degree or prior experience diagnosing plant problems). I'll still be in contact with the sales rep to see if I can do anything about this.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Weird Dragon Fruit Seeds

Several of my dragon fruit have these weird seed masses with very white flesh around them. Anybody know what's the cause or what it's called?

It seems that the seeds are $10 for 2. I don't know why you wouldn't say that instead of the much more misleading "$10 each". Anyways, we can get achacha seeds on the forum for $3 each.

I'm looking for mango scions. I've already got a coconut cream, glenn, and fruit punch tree so I'd be looking for anybody who has thai, indian, or zill type mangoes.

What size are these cuttings?

I'm primarily looking for Asian Black sugar cane, but if you have other varieties, I'd also be willing to buy.

I'd be interested in 5 trees.
