Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Wanted: Rattan-Calamus sp, seeds.
« on: February 25, 2014, 04:58:17 PM »

I'm looking for fresh Rattan seeds. I got some fig cuttings that i can trade!

Please send me a pm, Thanks.  :)

''Warning...i'm going off topic here'' Fellow admins, i hope you guys don't mind my thread. :)

I'm busy with a college report on Biologic Soil Management and i'm trying to figure out and interpret what two spontaneous plants may indicate, in terms of nutrients that the soil may hold or lack of it.

For example, we can easily interpret the wealth or lack of nutrients or ph, that a plot of land may possess, with a floristic survey, thus giving us a prospective of which crops, should be planted to get good production and harvest.

Ex. Oxalis is a good indicator of acidic soils, and a good source of N, when the plant ceases to vegetate and dies, thus recycling nutrients back into the soil.

Bidens Pilosa, a good indicator of N and P in the soil...etc.

If one can interpret what the spontaneous plants, are trying to indicate...a person will be able to reduce or totally eliminate the need of adding a particular nutrient(s) to the soil or reducing the risk of over chemical fertilization.

Now the million dollar question, what does Solanum nigrum and Euphobia paplus, represent interms of nutrients that the soil may posses.

I have an idea what Solanum nigrum, indicates.

Any help is much appreciated, Thanks in advance! :)

I have Yellow Mangosteen-Garcinia xanthochymus seeds for sale. They are from a large fruiting tree and very productive. Yellow Mangosteen is cold tolerant and can be used as rootstock, for other Garcinia sp like Mangosteen.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / My Crunchy white-fleshed Guava, UPDATE! :)
« on: April 30, 2013, 06:34:30 AM »
Howdy Folks,
This tree started flowering after two years in the ground!  :o I actually expected this tree to flower in about 5 years being in the highlands...also this tree didn't even drop a single leaf during winter 8), compared to my 10+ year old tree, which did slowly drop them leaves :o Looks like a bit of love(irrigation and fert)...goes a long way :)

The seeds came from a fruit, I bought in the supermarket from Brazil...don't know the cultivar, but I got to say...seeds from an improved commercial white guava variety, sure didn't take very long to flower 8) I also planted  a tree from the same batch of seeds, in my orchard in Calheta, which is double the size now...though, I didn't see any flowers the last time I was there...hopefully, this tree will start to flower soon :)

The tree in the orchard :)

I have now fresh seeds of Passiflora ligularis available for trade. I am looking for any tasty specie from the same genus. I already have edulis, edulis var flavicarpa, edulis x flavicarpa, caerulea and mollissima...i'm not interested in them.

If anybody wants to trade, please PM me.  ;)

Thanks :)

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Bottle graft :)
« on: April 09, 2013, 05:32:30 PM »
Howdy folks,
The method am about to share, was passed down from my uncle...then to my dad, 20+ years ago...then to i'm happy to pass the knowledge down to you :) This method is very easy and can be used for any fruit tree you wish to has been down to kumquat and stonefruits, with flying colours 8) This method is great for hot and dry climates, since it keeps the graft cool and moist :)

A scion was selected with buds that are nice and swollen. Scions should be harvest when the mother tree is getting active and buds are almost about to vegetate or break dormancy.

Scion prepared for insertion. For those who haven't grafted before, please take your time and do it that your first time isn't unpleasant and painful  :)

Cut in the middle of the rootstock, which will make a wedge, for inserting the scion or wood. The rootstock is a sucker that sprouted last year...when life gives you a sucker, graft on it ;D

Insert the scion into the wedge...make sure to align the cambium layers, on both the scion and the rootstock...the cambium cells will start to divide...then a union will be formed and sealed, within few weeks.

The material I used for binding the scion to the rootstock, is cut up supermarket plastic bags. Neatly roll the plastic, like you would a pancake(pancake, with cinnamon and sugar...hmmm ;D) and cut 1 inch long sections is enough...I like to fold each strip in half, for extra ''strength'' for binding the graft ;)

Cut the bottle and insert...then pop a few stones into the bottle and insert one below, to secure the bottle so that it doesn't foofy slide down the roostock ;) ;D

Fill the bottle with soil till top of the graft, (with soil, peat or sand...any soil ya have at your disposal) and water the bottle...Don't let the soil dry out, water now and then. :)

Voila  ;D when the shots get at lest 10in...the bottle can be carefully removed..I like to use a hot wire to remove the bottle. :)

Hope this is useful  :)

Does any fellow member know where i can get fresh seeds?

Thanks :)

Hi Cambucá Lovers,
Here's an awesome article on the preservation of Cambucá 8) Make sure to watch the vid ;)

I translated the article so that everyone, can read the article :)

Biologists are working to preserve the cambucá in the mountainous region of Rio de Janeiro.

Tree with a rounded canopy and strong branched/trunked is native to the Atlantic Forest.
Deforestation has put the species at risk of extinction.

Biologists of the Cambucás Project was developed in Rio de Janeiro, with the intent of preserving this  majestic specie, with the rounded canopy and strong branched that is native to the Atlantic Forest. Manmade deforestation, puts the fruit tree in danger of extinction. The long time before coming into production, makes the cambucá a non commercial fruit, which aggravates the problem. The first fruits begin to appear by the age of 15 and 18 years old.

A survey conducted by the biologist Fabian Correa, coordinator of the Project Cambucás in Cantagalo, in the mountainous region of Rio de Janeiro, showed that there are eight specimens of the tree on private land, in the rural area and nearby areas. On a farm in the region, which is from 19th century, has only two cambucá trees.

The project coordinator says that the goal is to increase the number of trees. "One of the ideas of the project is to rescue the cambucá's that are present in backyards, so that we will have more and more locations with the this tree...farms and backyards with cambucá" says Fabian.

The cambucá is in the same family as Jabuticaba and there are several common features between the two. One being the slow growth. In areas of dense forest, the cambucá tree can reach 10m/33ft tall, but the size of the tree is a bit smaller when cultivated in orchards. Each fruit has a single seed and germination takes about 40 to one hundred days, after the seed has been planted. The first fruits begin to appear when the tree is about 15 or 18 years old. The fruits appear generally in the months of December and January, but some trees bloom later.

Eating the fruit little known and is becoming a privilege for those who have the opportunity to experience the cambucá fruit. Besides being tasty, the fruit is very important for the ecological balance. According to experts, many species feed on cambucá.

The owner of a site, Thaís Campanate says that she has taken special care not to let the tree die. She also supports the project and says that she has planted more trees on site. In 12 years, many people were part of the group fighting to not let the cambucazeiros(Cambucá trees) to disappear from the region. The idea has also turned into a book for children, which reinforces the importance of preserving this relic from nature. The project inspired José Guilherme, who accompanied the start of the project, who then choose to become a environmental technician.

I'm looking for the following Fig varieties;
  • Kadota
  • Celeste
  • Black Mission
  • Conadria
  • Desert King
  • White Adriatic
I got the following fig varieties to trade;
  • Mel do Algarve. Large fig. When mature the fruit drips honey from the 'eye'.
  • Pingo de Mel. Medium sized fig. Pingo de Mel, also drips honey from the 'eye'
  • Figo Doce. Small sized fig, with golden flesh.

Mel do Algarve

Pingo de Mel(Drop of Honey)

Figo Doce(sweet fig)

The three varieties are very productive, juicy and sweet. I usually use Mel do Algarve for jam, because of the large size of fruit. Pingo de mel and Figo Doce, can also be used for jam. Though, they are best eaten out of the hand...YUMMY ;D


Hi all,

A fellow member shared this article about the Coconut-flavoured Pineapple 8)
