Since you live in Thailand. Why don't you buy a  pulasan seedling from your area, get scions from different types of pulasan from Indonesian members. Graft them and make a cocktail tree.

Because it's impossible to find a pulasan in my area, i gave up searching.

And the grafted ones i had from singapore died. Also i don't trust Singapore so much, before i went there they wrote me they had the black  pulasan seebabat but when i asked him in person he was not so sure anymore.

The pulasanpictures from Indonesia don't look as big as from Malaysia. Malaysia has the biggest ones that i can find on internet.

A grafted pulasantree from malaysia would be the ultimate but it's illegal to send tree's out of Malaysia. So maybe a member here can help me to get seeds from the big black ones. Then i can always graft onto it when it started growing.

But have a look at this.....

All their pictures are from Daleys nursery except for one picture, the grafted plants picture. Strange isn't it ?.  ::)

Very odd indeed. Thank goodness you have this forum that questions shady business like these

I will mention this one time only, i don't care what you do with it.

Slandering Thai company's (even over the internet) can have very serious consequences. Up to you. They use computer databanks at the immigration......

If you see the same pictures at elsewhere on the internet  then that's probably what it is. How do you know they didn't get permission for it?

www.thailandfingerlime.com was on the news last week, they were being promoted as a new business to encourage the Thai to "think out of the box" and start new company's. I guess more will follow soon.

For me namdocmai-green is still the best mango ever. I have a whopper jakrapat (Yu-wen from taiwan) on the counter now and will eat it one of these days. There are more new taiwanese mangofruits on the market now but not for sale yet. Maybe next week they said so then i can compare.

For jackfruit phet raa chaa and thong prasert rule, don't know how old these variety's are. Daeng suria is nothing compared to those.

For papaya the papaya holland is head and shoulders above the rest. This is a new hybrid.

For roseapples the phet si rung is great but also the older tabtim chan is great when fully ripe. The new taiwanese still have to fruit and are not on the markets yet, can come any time now though.

Osteen is also a great mango and an old one. It has a little bit fibre though and the flesh is not supersoft, i really like them as well.

Apples are all bad these days, in Holland we get loads of new variety's but i can't be bothered with them. They are not selected for taste. Even roseapples are sweeter and taste better.

Mayongchid is bigger and better then maprang wan. Maprang wan is sweeter though but tastes like mango. Mayongchid has more sour tones like a mangosteen.

I ate Chanee durian yesterday, i liked it more then mongthong since it didn't have much garlic/onion flavour. No idea how old both variety's are but mongthong is the most sold in thailand.

Petch Pakchong is a better sugarapple then the older squamosa's, much bigger and less seed. Also a little harder flesh.

Garcinia hombroniana is dioecious


I looked at "indigenous fruits of Sarawak" book, and entire page dedicated to baccaurea angulata does not mention it being dioecious. So, there is a hope than:)

Oddly enough there's no information regarding this in any of the T.K Lim books either but others species e.g. B.motleyana and B.ramiflora are dioecious so I guess there's the possibility B.angulata is too.

Maybe you know this website?
https://dokmaidogma.wordpress.com/2013/02/05/burmese-grape/

But today i saw many baccaurea ramiflora tree's for sale and asked the vendor if he sells male and female tree's and he had to laugh about it. He said this mafai don't need that to fruit.....Well i have no idea myself but just wanted to let you know.

update: The Byron Sunrise at least is not authentic. It has a very peculiar  growth habit and type of foliage, much different that the finger limes they have pictured. Tomorrow I will post pics of the real deal you'll see what I mean.

Damn, they had crimson tide but i didn't pick it.

I bought red champagne and byron sunrise, i though the last one had yellow flesh but they are both red. I remembered those names from your post and when i was in the shop i had to choose which ones i wanted. I remembered you mentioned about byron bay-something one day so i picked that one as 2nd.

Well no big deal, they will get cheap here next year i guess, i 've seen them in many shops allready. But they have all the good ones that you mentioned, maybe they are reading here as well haha.

Now it's just a matter of time before they are on ebay, out of thailand. Also soon we will have all the Zills mango's i bet.

57
Well if i were him then i would remove them from the web, and also make a fence around his yard. Then nobody can get his stuff unasked, problem solved   8)

Does he know about all the copy copy brandname stuff which is for sale in Asia? They even have copied new BMW models in China, you can buy/drive them there.

I just bought 2 grafted fingerlimes, do i know if they are the real deal? Nope. Do i know if they paid for the name? Nope. Do i know if they really came from Oz? Nope....But i don't care, i'm happy with them.Did they try to cheat me? Yep, 2500 baht at the first vendor but 3 minutes later i got 2 for 900 baht.

Starling thanks for your tips how to grow them, i'm going to buy/make good draining soilmix now. That's why i read this forum.

if you can send me pictures of the fruit I can ID them.

Oh they are just small tree's.

But have a look at this.....

How many times is he gonna waste our time with a "stolen" pic which was not even copy-protected and on public internet? There was not even a name in the pic of the owner.

I even have seen CRFG pics where they named a jackfruit a durian on public internet.  ;D ;D I still feel sorry for that jackfruit. ;D

The pictures that are posted of the trees I have for sale on Ebay are the actual pictures of the plants I have in my nursery

That is a boldface lie and i can prove that quite easily. This nursery is digging themselves into a hole. They cover one lie with another.....their credibility is Shot. I am the creator of this image and I did not authorize them to use it for their profit.




And I'm afraid that I'm going to have to concur with Bangkok; Maha Chanok is an Heirloom variety that is from Thailand. It is sold in Australia as king Thai (http://www.daleysfruit.com.au/Dwarf-Mango-King-Thai.htm) and does certainly not meet your definition as  a 'Beautiful New Variety out of Florida'.

My guess is that you're using duplicitous language in order to garner interest from a market sector with an interest in 'buying American'. Well, you're technically defrauding that market and plagiarizing a variety by proxy. So you're not exactly at the pinnacle of ethical congeniality yourself.

Stones in Glass houses, my friend.

Starling i don't understand why Daleys won't use the original name "mahachanok". On top of that the name that they currently use (i don't even dare to repeat it) is not done in Thailand.... :-X :-X

Are you guys happy now to ruin the thread about a new ebayseller?

This forum has become a snakepit. There's nothing fruity about it. It's all about the money, honey. >:(

your leafylife.com website also has a lie on it, i warned you before and you didn't change it.

Maha Chinok is the name of a beautiful new mango variety out of Florida   It's from ASIA!

The pictures that are posted of the trees I have for sale on Ebay are the actual pictures of the plants I have in my nursery, they
are not taken from other people trees.  The first pictures in the listing is a generic  pictures that could be mine or taken off from the
internet of the mango.  The pictures taken from the internet are not stolen as the ones I do use are not trademarked.  When possible
I will take pictures of our own fruits.

We do try our best to send on pictures when requested.  However we can have many varieties of one plant and an not take pictures of
every plant we have in our nursery for sale.  Most of the plants we take pictures of to our customers we have many that are very
similar to each other and we then chose one instead of taking pictures of 20 different plants that really look the same.

Hi ebayseller, Welcome to the forum!

You are worldfamous allready by selling on ebay and you have great ratings as a seller. 97% happy customers is something to be proud of!

Don't let them drive you crazy here, and  the mahachanok mango came from Asia. ;D

Hendrik can you describe the taste of the artocarpus sarawakensis? There is another thread here on the forum about them, people are looking for them.

How does it taste compared to the pedalai or keledang?

Spain also has very slow mail, even for EMS.

Here everything works fine. Normal mail from Bangkok to USA, Europe, Australia all takes 14-20 days. Indonesia a few days more and EMS takes 9 days or less to anywhere. But in Spain the postal systems are very slow.

Adhyt you have great seeds!

I have 15 out of 15 sprouted now! Maximum score!

In Thailand the limes are expensive at the moment, this happens every year dued to a shortage on the markets.

My friends freeze their whole limes to use later. They use the juice for drinks or on fried rice. You can try it, just freeze them whole or only the juice in icecube forms/bags.

Perhaps you could help open the export market for us
here. The price this time of the year crashes ($2kg) as there is an oversupply of Tahitian (Persian) limes from NSW hitting the market.

The Thai protect their market very well. Aussie avocado's still cost a lot here these days, even when the AU$ dropped a lot recently they still cost the same as last year. 3 au$ for 1 avocado in the supermarkets or local markets. Aussie cherry's 32 au$ for a kg.

But i read that people here prefer the local lime above the tahiti or other limes. Also i heard of several Thai who want to start limefarms now because of the high prices, so in a few years we will have an overload of limes i guess.

2. About Sirsak Madu
Look the picture. And you can discribe.






This is pict of annona muricata madu. I compare with srikaya raksasa.
This soursop looks so different to what I have seen online before hey! Im glad I grabbed a few seeds from you! Madu means honey right? So im thinking nice and sweet:)
Im interested to see if its growth habit is different to seeds from whitman soursop I have growing which is the most vigourous Annona seedling I have by a very wide margin:D

How is the fibre in the Sirsak madhu, how is the texture?

The name sirsak comes from the Dutch word "zuurzak" , it means sour sack (or sour bag). Old dutch gave it that name because they didn't like it. It's also called Durian Balando or Durian Belanda, nangka belanda , the old dutch also didn't like the durian.

They preferred the "zoetzak" or sweet sack (or sweetbag) but now it is called sirsak madhu as i just learned from Beni.

Maybe in S-Africa you also have those names because old people there also can speak Dutch or a version of it.

here you go.. you are right.. $45..

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Pineapple-Pleasure-Mango-3-gallon-Grafted-/121599687149?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item1c4fe7f9ed

Yes this was the one. Hmm but that's a big tree to stuff in a box. That will raise eyebrows. I will ask my friends in S-Francisco if they can bring it to me.

But for you this is a great mango for your collection, google on the forum for reviews. I think it was the winner last year.

she has a pineapple please mango too.. I think it is in a 3 gallon container, that's why it was only 40-50 bucks + shipping.. that's a good one too? wow, there's so many mangos to collect then..

Yes pineapple pleasure was a very good mango but didn't fruit regularly if i recall well.

3 gallon is a big large to send for such long distance, maybe i should ask for the smallest one. I didn't see that tree again on ebay this week, i will keep an eye on it.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: lamut sida - madhuca esculenta
« on: March 23, 2015, 10:24:49 AM »
Looks like the most popular of this genus is Madhuca longifolia aka Madhuca indica, which is grown for its oleaginous seeds. The fat (solid at ambient temperature) is used for the care of the skin, to manufacture soap, or detergents, and as a vegetable butter. It can also be used as a fuel oil.

I see, well if my tree has those properties then my wife will like it. I also have the yellow roseapple which can produce real rosewater which smells great so she can make soap or skincreme or so.

But the fact that i saw it on the toptropical website makes me wonder what it is. If it was a great fruit then it would be in every treeshop here and on the markets but also my wife doesn't know it. I will ask her to google it in thai language, maybe then i get more info.

Lamut is sapodilla in Thailand but i don't know what si da means." si" means color but "da" i don't know yet. Red is "daeng" but they call it "da".

Last week i saw a grafted pineapple pleasure mangotree on ebay. It was 40-50 bucks if i remember well. I don't hear much about that one last months but it was one of the top mango's according to many members.

Maybe i will order it if i see it again. It was from the US.
