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?

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?

The description of the E Wai longan variety sounds very appealing to me. Especially the softer, non-crisp texture. Has anyone seen this available for sale before, or know where to get it?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Talisia/melicoccus graft compatibility?

I was wondering if anyone knows if this is possible or has done this. For example approach grafting Talisia esculenta with genip.

I received these seeds from someone in Thailand expecting them to be langsat seeds. As far as I know these are not langsat seeds.

I thought maybe he has mistaken langsatan for langsat. I'm not sure what those look like either. These are more pinkish red in person.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Info on Artocarpus nitidus
« on: May 23, 2015, 12:47:54 PM »
So I have a couple of specimens of artocarpus nitidus subspecies linganesis. There's not a whole lot of info on the web about this plant. I'm pretty sure I've read them all.

I'm just wondering if anyone can share some experiences with this plant? Is anyone growing this, possibly outdoors in Florida? I'd like to know info on cold hardyness, years to bearing, and taste/texture.

I might have to test the cold hardyness of nitidus myself this winter. I learned already that this plant likes full shade when young.

Here's a picture of one of my plants

It appears to have some variability in the leaf form, although this is an old picture and all the proceeding growth has been uniformly shaped leaves.

Hello, I'm looking for Jolo sour type langsat from Philippines that is typically used for rootstock in nurseries there or wild langsat. Also accepting langsat seeds from Thailand on my permit and shipping label. Looking for seeds from langsat trees growing in the wild, not looking for seeds from improved varieties or any duku.


I need to know the secret to how nurseries are doing all these cleft grafts on quenepa. Approach grafting, and air layering are not an option in this case. Going to another country and bringing back scions.

So is there any graft technique using scions that have been successful? My cleft and side graft attempts have all been unsuccessful. Even tried rooting, I might experiment more with that though.

I'm sure there is some trade secret to mastering these grafts. Nurseries in south florida are doing it, as well as nurseries in Puerto Rico

Hello. I'm looking for regular langsat seeds like Paete or Utteraditt varieties. I'm after any langsats that might grow in Luzon area, Thailand or Vietnam. I need it for rootstock so hardiness and growth rate are more important than taste.

Thanks for looking.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / TopTropicals genip

On their page for spanish lime, they have five varieties for sale. I feel skeptical about it, almost like it's too good to be true. They are all air-layered hermaphrodites apparently too.

I can't find any info on the taste or production of the genip cultivars except the older ones: Queen, Montgomery, and Key west ones. Which Montgomery appears to be the best out of those.

Anyone ever try these genip cultivars and can report anything about them? Especially the other ones: Sasa, ponce, jose pabon. Does the top tropicals offering seem legit? Anyone ever buy one of these?

I'm going to visit this week, hopefully I'll be able to ask some questions about them.

Mod edit: It's Sasa not Sosa.

I'd like to have seeds shipped to me. I'd also buy olivaeformis seeds.

It's genip season here in Florida and the Caribbean, but I guess it might be the wrong season in the southern hemisphere for these. Let me know either way if you have access to them and usually buy them when they are in season.
