Madrono de monte
« on: February 01, 2014, 10:58:12 PM »
Just wondering, anyone familiar with Jim West's Garcinia sp. madrono de monte?  He description is just "large" & "subacid" so it doesn't tell a lot.  I neglected to ask him about it when he was here for the fruit conference.

I'm afraid I don't have any info, but I bought seeds from him just based on his photo. I have a couple of seedlings in my greenhouse and I'd love to learn more as well.

I think I will.  I tried the group first as my hit rate for getting questions answered by Jim has been pretty low.  Maybe this will improve now that it sounds like he has internet at his house.

If he has internet at his house, he obviously doesn't check it every day. Or maybe service is not up and running every day.

I think he said he now has it at his house & no longer has to travel into town to access it when he spoke in HI.  With his remote location, I'm guessing it would probably be satellite if so.

If he has internet than probably it is not a satellite, nor does he has interruptions in service. You can answer emails and browse low graphics websites on your smartphone or laptop by creating hotspot with smartphone. When connection is slow it is painful process, so I don't blame for not wanting to communicate much.
I don't know why are you guys surprised about internet in the jungle nowadays?  In my travels I have been getting good coverage in distant places. Even in some remote areas of Western Ghats. In my somewhat remote Sri Lanka place smartphone would even fluctuate to 4G sometimes for 5-15 min. It's kind of crazy to be sitting in the jungle and browsing internet at blazing speeds.

Do you have a picture of the seedling G. madruno del monte?

These are my seedlings grown from Jim West's "Garcinia sp."

Hi Ricardo,

I wish I could give you a definitive answer.  They certainly look like they could plausibly be the same species.  I can't claim any expertise, though.

greetings, madroño de monte fans.  it is native nearby at 1500 meters elevation, but it has grown well here at 500.  my producing tree died, my neighbor has a producing tree now.  fruit from mine was sweet enough when fully ripe to be good out of hand, subacid.  my neighbors fruits are more sour.  its higher elevation origin should be good for sao paolo, california, hawaii.... i believe it is dioecious but does not need a male.<br /><br /><br />subi tu foto<br /><br /><br />

Jim, thank you for the new photo of de monte. It's good to know that there are plants in PR that are descended of your good tree that died.

I am just wondering why you never decided to replace your original tree, since your neighbor's tree is inferior? Have you gone back to the spot in the wild where you found it? Please offer such seeds again, since it is so valuable to us zonepushers to have germlines from high altitudes.

Regards
I do not recommend people deal with Fruit Lovers or Fernando Malpartida
