Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Supposedly Talisia Sylvatica tree and fruit?
« on: September 18, 2021, 10:44:49 PM »
should be this one but i can't find pics of the fresh fruit online.

tell you what dry some leaves and fruit so if it all looks like this then you got it.
Thank you for the replies and pictures I haven't seen before. I think the Talisia Cerasina is the closest match out of those fruits and it is apparently a very variable species, but maybe sylvatica is variable too. I think the growth habit and flowers are still more like sylvatica even though cerasina is somewhat similar. All of my sylvatica trees are unbranching, growing straight up with only leaves at the top. Inflorescence also shoots straight up from the top.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Supposedly Talisia Sylvatica tree and fruit?
« on: September 18, 2021, 07:06:43 PM »
One of my talisia sylvatica flowered and fruited this year. I guess this suggests they are monoecious btw.

The problem I have is this fruit looks nothing like talisia sylvatica pictures I've seen, or any type of talisia or melicoccus in literature or online. The growth and flowering habit seem to be definitively sylvatica, but the fruit shape is way off, in fact the opposite shape it should be.

I know there's some slight variation in the shape from the old drawing in the literature and the couple different photos we have online. Just wondering if anyone else has gotten fruit or has seen any talisia fruit look like this?

Dammit I some how always miss these seeds. And I've been checking for the past couple of months here for talisia or melicoccus seeds.

Any information about the Talisia? What the fruit was like, or where it was obtained?

There is a camp that says sunlight does help with graft healing and success chance, and I personally go by this philosophy.

I often see those fungus spots on sugar apple or atemoya after herbicide use. Although it would be a little strange for you to have herbicide damage on a potted tree, unless it rooted through the pot to the ground underneath.

I wonder if the leaves can make you sleepy like the fruit? That would be great to know.

Yea they are quite variable but they can be quite excellent quality.

Other puerto rican varieties that I cant find any info on but are intriguing to me are one: Martinez, which Dr. Brunner says is one of the best quality cultivars.
Also Tuna and Cesar Ramos, which he says are great yielding cultivars.

I'd like to know how regular/productive is martinez, and maybe a quality description, and also how good quality are the productive varieties Tuna and Cesar Ramos.

Sasa is out of the consideration because from my account and from others it is shy/irregular bearing. It is the best in quality in imo.
The qualities I'm most interested in are how free stone it is, sweetness and pulp content, in that order.

Hey Raul,
Seeds arrived safely and well sprouted after 2 months in the mail!

Very nice, I hope mine arrive that nicely or at all. My tracking number never even worked.

I know I'm reviving this old thread but my inquiry is directly related.

I know there are so many cultivars existing or being selected in puerto rico or even dominican republic that are unknown to the outside world. I was wondering if anyone has any insight on some of these lesser known or newer varieties in puerto rico or elsewhere?

Aņasco is one I'm interested in hearing more about, specifically how free stone it is and commercial viability. Overall I'm looking for varieties worthy of commercial outplanting of excellent quality.

I wanted to update that I got the seeds, they were the right species and they have already sprouted after softening the hard seeds before planting with hot water.

Jeez I hope I didn't buy mimosa pudica from him instead of hostilis.

That does look pretty delicious.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Redlands White Sapote
« on: June 28, 2020, 08:03:15 AM »
Younghans gold has much better production imo. I had my redlands white sapote first and it did produce fruit on it's own. I don't think adding the younghans gold tree has increased the pollination by any appreciable amount so far.

Well hopefully, I have some luck germinating my seeds.

They finally just send me a shipped notification and tracking for my order, and they indeed added the phyto certificate I requested. So good on them. Maybe they saw my post here and got it done lol.

Has anyone successfully ordered from them recently?

I made an order about a month and a half ago, and I immediately tried to change my order the same day because I forgot to add phyto certificates. Well they initially responded to me the first time but haven't responded the many email I've sent afterwards.
They've taken a bunch of my money but can't even respond to a single email for over a month. I really don't recommend this company for seeds.

Any recommendations on how to get my money back with this German company when I live in the United states?

Are you still accepting orders? I sent through PayPal a little while back.

Is it a maximum of 10 seeds for an order or just that there is additional shipping for more than 10 seeds?

My current top 5 would have to be:
1. Genip/mamoncillo
2. Atemoya or sugar apple
3. Abiu
4. Jackfruit
5. Sapodilla

There's a lot of fruit that I need to try that I'm sure would change this list.

I'm guessing you wont be getting anymore this season? I'm definitely interested whenever you do get more.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Fruiting Durian in Florida?
« on: December 05, 2019, 10:14:57 PM »
I was there recently, fairly certain they still have several left, but not like before. They also removed the Langsat tree and one of the mangosteen trees =(

They removed the langsat tree and and a mangosteen from the green house!? Do you know why?

The greenhouse is part of the Science Village / Conservatory. It's known as the Whitman Tropical Fruit Pavilion. The name was recently changed to the Bill & Angela Whitman Fruit Pavilion. -

Has anyone been successful in fruiting durian in Florida? I have seen a few decent size trees at Fairchild tropical gardens, but never seen any fruit. I don't know of any other durian trees here in Florida.

I haven't heard of anyone fruiting it in Florida. I think those durian trees at Fairchild may have all been cut down recently. Anyone can confirm?

The Durian trees remain. The Lansium will be replanted once the marcotts we prepared from Bill Whitman's original 'Conception' are ready for planting. I will personally be helping with this planting alongside other RFCI Miami members.

The Rare Fruit Council Int'l. (RFCI), Miami will be more actively involved volunteering in the "Whitman Pavilion", at the request of Angela Whitman who aside from being a benefactor sits on the board of directors of Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden.

The Whitman fruit pavilion, that's the greenhouse I was talking about  ;D

Wasn't the langsat tree the conception variety already? I remember the side of the tree that got the most light was getting burned up, although it's been a few years since I've been there. They really don't like sunlight until they get massive it seems. I'm guessing the tree died?

Good stuff mate, that was fun to watch. Also wish I could have been there  ;D

I took a close look at my grafted mexican mangosteens for the first time in awhile today and I saw that one of the runts has possibly set a fruit on it. Is it normal for them to try and fruit this time of year?

Well, just to give you some hope. I had 100% graft success with mine surprisingly. A couple of the grafts took way longer than the rest to push but they all eventually took. I've seen that others had good rates of success too.
