Ant they look good and I bet you tanked up. Do you remember if the best ones you tries had variety names.

Guyabano AKA soursop



Atis AKA sugar apple



Lanzones AKA Langsat "very sweet"

Mangosteen...

Ant all very nice, was it cebu rather than luzon where you took most photos.The lanzones don't look like paete to me or even langsat.I think they are longkong.I know longkong has been replacing lanzone.The sugar apples seem small,did you see big ones or other types and is one annona pictured a custard apple?

MikeT, most of mango pics are taken in Tarlac, Pampanga in my uncle's farm and Manila...The Lanzones is still called lanzones but this variety is from Bangkok because local Lanzones is still not in season till August..the Atis vary in sizes the biggest is about the size of a baseball...more pics..
Bilimbi..

Green wax jambu

Red wax jambu

Great looking jackfruit Ant and sweet crunchy orange will always beat yellow sloppy.The yellow one looks like an unusual type in the way it fruits.Santol Bangkok is the most common type here and I don't know why they would name a santol after a terrible accident.

Ant the pictures just keep coming.I think one day longkong lanzone will take over from the langsat lanzones.My bilimbi is loaded with fruit right now as well.Nice looking jambu are they red in a spot under the bell and have no seeds?

Thank you for sharing! Always amazing to see fruiting trees in other parts of the world. Any photos of the red sweet jackfruit cut open? How did the wax jambus taste? They are on my list to grow, i love how profusely they fruit!

No photos of the giant white guava, chico, mabolo, or marang.I tasted one big chico as big as a baseball at my uncle's house other than that they are not in season.I did take  pic of some his bonsai including a fruiting guava bonsai and sweet tamarind vonsai from bangkok..


sweet tamarind...I should have taken pics when it had fruits on it but my kids ate it all up.

Ant you keep coming up with great tropical fruit pictures like Bocah.Sweet tamarinds are a special fruit much different and way better than the normal ones.I am hoping to be brought some sweet tamarind seeds back from Thailand next week.The bonsai sweet tamarind and bouganvillea are eye popping plants alright.

Not sure that the sweet tamarind seeds will produce sweet tamarind pods? You might need to get a grafted tree.

Fruitlovers my partners' father grew them in Kemmerat from seedling lines and they were true.There are fakes around but the genuine ones are just in a small part of thailand and plantations are generally of seedlings.I chatted to a farmer in Sisaket wo had me baffled by all the types but raved about the real sweets.They are almost like candy.

Yeah, i've had the sweet tamarinds in Thailand--very TASTY! Have some grafted trees planted here. There are a few different cultivars. I also have seeds of sweet types of tamarind s to mail to anyone interested?
