I just want to share this information about Indonesian new mango variety.
It is result of almost 12 year breeding program. this mango released under name "Agri Gardina 45"
its parent was Harum Manis X Saigon.
Harum manis considering as one of indonesian best tasting mango but its green color seems become a problem when it comes to export.
Saigon is a variety introduce from India, and i think it is different than Saigon cultivar that few time mention in this forum.
overall the taste was resembling the Harum manis and the peel color is blushing red, but i think the size would be another problem.
But i found some interesting character about this dwarf and very early bearer...and its have some ability to induce flowering of the tree where its scion grafted on to...even juvenile rootstock can induced to flowering...i will try an experiment use it as interstock...lets see how it work to juvenile scion that grow from seed.

Ripe and unripe fruit, the fruit need to exposed to sunlight for the red color

prolific producer and dwarfing habitus

this is an approach grafting tree...the (juvenile) rootstock induced flowering at the time as the Agri Gardinas

Tropical Fruit Discussion / American Mango in Indonesia
« on: January 21, 2015, 01:38:23 AM »
Please help identifying this mango, i am pretty sure this is an american mango but don't know what cultivar it is

I bought this mango from local fruit vendor. it sell among Keitt...and the fruit seller said it was Keitt, but the taste and shape were different.
i notice the peel was very firm...but flesh inside was juicy and no fiber with strong aroma and pineapple flavor.

Compare to Keitt

Deep red rind coloration that expose to sunlight

Flesh inside

The second mango is the one that i graft on the tree, but the label was gone. the flavor and taste were milder. i graft only two scion so this is either Zillate or Valencia Pride?

Fruit develop

Mature but unripe fruit

Ripe fruit

Inside look

and the last one is two mango that my friend who grew them said that those are Florida variety.

The "Golden" and "Zabecan" mango

Im pretty sure this "Goden" is Mahachanok

The "Zabecan" were quite big...a kilos or maybe more
Does anyone know if there any mango called Golden and Zabecan?

Thank you for any respond
Warm Regards from East Java - Indonesia

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Super Mini Mango from Borneo

Friend of mine send some photo of really really small mango...or at least Mangifera sp...since i don't know what exactly the species is.
People in South Kalimantan (South Borneo) called it Kucilak or Cililitan. it skin and flesh color just like Kesturi (Casturi)...and when really sweet. but my friend said its entirely different species. there is at least four or five "Wild Mango" that often sell at fruiting season and this Kucilak and Kesturi were two of them. 

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Nangkadak (Jack X Chempedak) first harvest
« on: January 09, 2013, 03:51:44 PM »
Hi, just wanna share some pict of my Nangkadak. this is the first time its bear fruits. it size were pretty big considering this is first fruit and i keep lots of fruit instead thinning them down. the aroma were unique....just like jakfruit but kind of little "mild" with hint of chempedak aroma. flavor were excelent, very smoth with balance of sweet and acid. but for my taste buds...the texture were just more like chempedak (wich is to soft) instead of jackfruit that more "firm and crunchy"

Tropical Fruit Discussion / fiberless Golek mango

Some pict of Golek mango this season. i think it was most fiberless among indonesian mango, in fact there is no fiber at all. but the best quality with true flavor of this kind were need special soil and wheater best grow in dry/arid climate with sandy soil...

Dwarf jackfruit or mini jackfruit start to bearing fruit. it would not be a good crop considering the tree size, but it just nice to see it shown it early bearing and dwarf habitus...

Tropical Fruit Discussion / White Tropical Longan
« on: September 19, 2012, 12:42:24 AM »
Here some pic of my white longan.
well, at least thats how fruit growers here called it, since there no one know what exactly cultivar its is.
my guess it would be some seedling of vietnam longan (long nhan in viet) and like major of vietnam longan, it is very tropic tree. there is no need of cool temperature to induce flowering. and it really early bearing, even if growing from seed. mine is a grafted and simply flowering when it first flush that emerged after graft process had mature leaves.

early april : side grafted scion start to grow

late may : second flush bring flower panicle along

mid september : almost mature fruit....white coloration start to appear

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Java's Seedless Red Guava
« on: September 01, 2012, 12:12:37 AM »
Here pict of my (almost) seedless red guava.
te fruit is litle bit over ripe so it too soft and juicy for my preference. i prefer fruit that has green skin with fade yellow blush with some crunchy and firm inside.
well, the guava is not totally seedless since there still a view number of seed within. but i considered it as a seedless variety as the seed remain is only 5 to 10 / fruit (depend ot it size) or maybe "less seed" would be a proper name (LOL)

fruit shape and outside look

inside cut

In the end of June i bought 2 kilos of lychee fruit from nearby fruit vendor here in east java. just wonder what variety they are? it taste very sweet with no acid or astrigent...flesh was thick and smaller fruit even had shrunken seed. i think it was imported from china since there chinese character printed on the box. aniway, most of lychee fruit in indonesia imported from thailand and most of it was Kom cultivar (similiar to bosworth or mauritius - not sure) it was small in size with some sweet acid flavor. so it just curiousity of mine....

Pict of my longan fruit cluster...i've searhing in internet for best longan cultivar in end up with view thai type and Kohala. when i saw kohala pict all over the net, its remind me to my longan collection wich is local cultivar ftom here, east java - indonesia. its look very similiar for its leaf and tree habitus...or it just cause they have one thing in common : china origin...
