Anyone know of any fruit tree collections/orchards in Italy that are open to the public or open through a tour etc?
In June, anywhere in Italy except Sicily/Sardinia.

I did some youtube and google search but found only “ageoturisomo” places that just seams to be fancy villas for rent.

I know June is a bit early for fruit but that’s when I am going. Looking mostly for heritage fig, citrus etc.

Thanks

Peace,
Cassowary

Tropical Fruit Discussion / FNQ Cyclone Jasper
« on: December 18, 2023, 03:00:05 AM »


Thats me with a pole saw trying to save what I can during Jasper LOL

I hope people are safe and that the damage wasnt to bad for ya all.

We had one big durian snap in half and one large breadfruit tree fall over. And one big bamboo clump came out of the ground. All of them fell towards N, so I assume it was due to strong S wind.

Our midsize durian 3-4m all did well no damage.
Some mid size lanky trees fell over to 45 degrees but will be easy to stake up.
The strongest trees where definetly durian, mango and pedali. Some that didn’t do to well where abiu, rollinia, soursop and dabai. Dabai and rollinia worse.
Safou took it without a nick.
Our African safou (Dacryodes schweinfurtii) are a lot taller then our safou and did survive. I did weave them togert since the seeds I got where polyembryonic. The weaving made the africa dabai really strong and sturdy. I might do that with more trees in the future. 2 seed in each pot if they are not polyembryonic.

Otherwise there isnt much damage.
We are on a slope so no flood damage but our creek have been raging for days and last night the creek got quite high. Lots of big logs raging down and I cant find a single salak that I planted on the edge of the creek :D

Have recorded 900mm since wednesday. But I dont have a clearing 30m around the meter so it not super accurate. And once it overfilled.
Most rain was sunday night.

How did otherd fare?

Peace

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Cempedak season AU
« on: August 19, 2023, 02:19:04 AM »
When is the normal cempedak season in AU FNQ?

I have just come across them sporadically over the the years so haven’t been able to form an idea around when main cempedak season is.

Cooktown to tully.

In May I had some in Woopen creek.

In March I have had some in whyanbeel.

Jack is usually sep-dec around mossman.
Cempejack I know of have been same season as jack.

Maybe it’s after durian season kinda??

But it’s a but strange this year because i’v got almost mature breadfruit now. Usually only the small samoan fruit of season for me.
And I’v had some strange off season durian flowers too.

No mature cempedak tree’s here yet so can’t say.

Cempedak is the Prince of fruit IMO! To ugly to be queen I guess :p

Peace!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Lal Badshah or Red King Mango any good?
« on: July 06, 2023, 05:15:36 AM »
Got a grafted Lal Badshah or Red King mango tree.
Didn’t get any description of the tree or fruit from the source so asking here since there so many Mango experts here.

Is it any good?
Is it disease resistant?

Peace!

I read that Alfalfa/Lucerne and Tea leaf extract are rich in Triacontanol, a common bio stimulant found in epicutical wax.

https://www.sciencedirect.com/topics/agricultural-and-biological-sciences/triacontanol#:~:text=Triacontanol%2C%20the%20long%20chain%20fatty,Alfa%2Dalfalfa%20%5B136%5D.

My plan is to soak the chaff in a bucket of water and let it sit without airation like it’s commonly done with comfry and nettle. And then sieve it and then use as foliar.

Or maybe extract with KOH like most fish and seaweed extracts are extracted.
But maybe KOH will damage Triacontanol, I know KOH damages auxins and GH3 and that’s why commercial seaweed extracts have no biostimularive effect, unless GH3 have been added back in after. Even canadian arcadian isn’t very good IME, but way better then Organic crop protectant brand that the green shed sells.


I’v got the chaff so will try and make an extract with water.

Anyone used Triacontanol or have used home made plant extracts as biostimulants before?
Can buy 2% Tria solutions but it’s expensive.
Also can buy Tria in bulk from China but feels like the wrong way to go about it. And if I am using pure extract the other homones and nutrients won’t be there.

Peace!

Have an issue with the leafs of young safou seedlings.

Leafs damaged by something. Seams to stunt the trees.
Even some on Canarium schweinfurti but not as much, they grow faster and more.

Ammended the top of the soil with Calcium lime, Soft rock phosphate some sea guano (more citrate solible then SRP) and some Nitrophoska Special (compound synthethic fert for Nit and Amm).
That and some water with compost helped to push the otherwise stunted apical shoot, it litteraly were stunted for months, looked almost dehydrated.

But seams like new growth still have some of the “rust” so nutritionally I havent fixed it. Will take time for Ca and P to go down the soil to. Added Ca and P according to Soil test recommendations.

It would be great if anyone can ID what is causing the damage to the leafs.
There are some small ants minind aphids but very few so they are not causing the major damage. But might be carrying around spores etc..

I thought it would be wise to dedicate a thread to discuss suitable options of commercial options of tropical fruit for FNQ farmers.
I get this qustion a lot from farmers who are considering to change crop.

In my first reply I am not focusing so much on argonomic stuff since farms are different and some species will be more suitable then others for any particular farm.

The first that comes up in my mind is Cempedak. Ships well, can be picked "early" and still taste good, premium price, market far from saturated, really cheap to pick if kept short, no latex like jack.

Jackfruit is another one but seams like there would be more competition in the market and not as good price as cempedak.

Breadfruit, low price, bat issue. Seams like there is already a lot of breadfruit planted.

Rambutans, forget about it, high picking cost. Fiji longan similar but less sensitive to less then optimal shipping conditions so I would go for fijians instead. Seams like there quite a lot of rambutan farms around.

Pulasan might be worth it becase of the weak supply that could fetch a really good premium price.

Durian, idk seams like a long term project that requires a really skilled farmer and perfect shipping system.

Dabai, I have no idea of current price if there is even any goin to market atm, with the right premium price dabi could be great. Unless bats get into the fruit (I don;t know), maybe pigeons.

Marang, pedali etc, get's soft fast and picking cost is higher then cempedak.

Mangosteen, lots of farms around, still good price, long time to first harvest.

malay apple, might not ship well (idk), price is probobly good, picking should not be to expesive is tree's are kept short.

langstat etc, seams like it's hard to get an annual crop, seams like price is still good, long before first harvest, picking cost is not to bad since you can cut the clusters rather easy from insidethe canopy.

safou, similar to dabai i guess. Idk if it will ever get the same premium price as dabai though.

mammey and green mammey sapote, quite easy to pick, easy to ship since hard fruits can be picked and still ripen and taste really good.

wanii and other mangifera species, have to determine what fruit is best suitable for market (i doubt average aussies will go for it because already got their KP), pajang seams to have good characteristis for shipping.

mammea americana could ship well I guess, and flavour is great, haven't seen bats, cookies etc going for them. I could see this one and matisa be apprciated by aussies for breakfast etc. or could maybe make a scene in high end hotels and resorts for breakfast. I ecuador it happens sometimes they serve matisia and narjanilla for breakfast at "eco" resorts.

Eugenias, idk if there is any with enough shelf life to allow shipping in bulk.

I probobly missed a 100 fruits but it's just a starter!

Tropical Vegetables and Other Edibles / ISO: Pandanus conoideus
« on: June 05, 2023, 05:20:07 AM »
The red part of the fruit is used to make a paste or sauce.
I have tried the sauce and I like it.

Anyone in Australia have plants or seeds??
Would like to barter or buy.
Would love to grow it and make my own sauce.
Must be really nutritious also.

I know there is someone in Bundaberg area but unfortunetly I lost the contact details that I got at the last Rare fruit AGM. :(

This fruit ahould be grown more here in AU!

11
I think I have the vine that this parasite prefers as a host.
Have anyone tried to collect the seed and then place it on the host plant?
Are there any plants in Australia, herbariums botanic hardens etc??

I read on wikipedia that the flower buds are considered a delicacy.

12
Hey,
Anyone distributing Toddy palm seeds?
I am looking to plant some but it’s been hard to find seeds.

There are a couple at cairns botanic garden but never find any fruit and seams to be only one female by the “chinese lake”.
According to Palms in australia there are meant to be growing some in cape york if I am not wrong.
Anyone know?
I only know one private garden with mature trees.

There is also another Borassus at CBG in the Fitzalani garden but I don’t jow if it’s toddy palm or not.

I like the fruit, had it in Cambodia where it grows like a weed!!

What “Borneo nuts” have the best taste?

Pangium, Elateriosperum tapos, pentaspadon motleyii, corodocarpus borneensis,

Dabai, galip, okari, pili. Stericulia foetida, jeringa..

Petai, but maybe not included since its fabace apecies but still a edible seeds that is delicious.

Others??

I have tried Galip and Pili and they are both really good, but Okari is better.
Anyone tried the others or know other Borneo nuts?


15
Which “Borneo mango” has the best taste?

Pajang, foetida, casturi, kuini, ka-long (Mangifera pentandra),
Kemanga, Wanii. Hybrids?? Others??

I have only tasted Wanii (Mangifera caesia) from Bali and it is really good.

Anyone have tested the others??
Thinking which to plant the most of.

Please any recommendations for citrus species and citrus cultivars that have stood the test of time in Wet Lowland tropical areas. Or Citrus for equatorial areas.

With wet I am suggesting more then 3000mm annually.
I am not into grafting yet so personally I am looking at something that does it from a seed. I am ok with seedling variability as I just select myself and have space enough.

I know white grapefruit, red grapefruit, kaffir lime, West Indian lime and Tahitian limes are going well here. Also Rangpur lime, Bush lemon (Citrus limon jambhiri) and Pomelo.

Our Mandarins (C. reticulata) are very prone to leaf miner and so are our mandarin oranges (C. reticulata x C x sinensis). The others mentioned above don't have issue or little issue).
The bush lemon and the pomelo is the most vigorous.
I have sown seeds from Ellendale, Hickson, Imperial, Emperor, Afourer and Muscott but can't see much difference in vigor and leaf miner occurrence.
The best one is a seedling Siam star (Thailand). Idk the parenthood of that one but it's the best so far here.

Only have small C x sinensis seedlings (Sweet orange) and they ore ok. Unfortunately I had an issue with labeling so can't compare navels with Valencia's and blood orange grown from seeds.

I have tried some poncirus dragons and they are going ok event though I neglected them a bit. Also growing some cox citrus seedlings but they are still small atleast no leaf miners.
Just planted a casturi lime so can't tell but they should be good I guess since they grow them in Indonesia.

Haven't tried any spray to reduce leaf miners, only tried with different nutrition approaches. No luck so far.

Peace!

Seeds. Barter only.

Artocarpus hypargyraeus, Kwai muk
Delicously sour sweet fruits.

Annona sericea.
Small fruit, sweet and edible, I quite like it.
Fruit appeared at 1.5m height so they fruit early.

Terminalia kaernbachii, Okari nut
Delicious seed, huge edible portion for a tree nut. Seed is sweet and milky, I rate it as the best tasting tree seed that I have tasted. Shell is tough and they are collected of the ground since they don’t get damaged when falling.
Ornamelntal tree.
Check out this post for more info:
https://tropicalfruitforum.com/index.php?topic=44604.msg442302#msg442302


Gustavia superba, Heaven Lotus tree
Could be Gustavia augusta, I am not sure since they are quite similar from my research. Not to experienced with Gustavia yet.
The yellow/orange flesh that comes of the seed in a string is very delicious, dried cheddar cheese reminds me of this fruit. It’s a new favourite. And the flower is spectacular.



Let me know what seeds you have to barter with. Thanks

It would be good to list some spots in Thailand where rare fruit tree's can be spotted.
Please post any spots you know of.

Botanical gardens, private gardens open to the public, research stations etc.

I have not visited any of these botanical gardens or research stations so can not say if there is any edible fruit tree's planted. But this is what I found on internet. it seams that some of these places are open to the public :D
I know there will be blogs such as year of the Durian with some location recommendations.

The Chumphon Horticulture Research Center can be found on the Bangkok bound side of Highway 41 some 32km south of Chumphon town.
The large white building with a blue roof (picture above) was built as a Tourism Information Center however, what I can only guess, the place has closed due to lack of interest. If you venture 100m pass this building you will come to the entrance of the Research Center.
The centre employs almost 200 people. Its aim is to carry out research into coconuts and Robusta coffee in order to help farmers via advice, modern techniques and young shoots. It covers a surface area of 280 ha.
The centre also deals with ecotourism and anyone interested in this subject can contact the centre at:

Will be flying in to East Kalimantan - Balikpapan in the future and would like to ask if there's anyone with advice for finding Durian or other rare fruit around the area or the greater part of East Kalimantan.
Or areas that are one- two days away by buss.

I know All the fruit found Durio grandiflorus there.
East Kalimantan - Balikpapan Experience or advice?
It seams like All the fruit is in kalimantan now, might try to contact him.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eoP1tG23-HA
Pontianak

It seams possible to take ferry from Tarakan to Sabah but would have to cross the Border to Malaysia then.

Or would it be good to spend most time in N Kalimantan, Central Kalimantan, S or West Kalimantan?
It depends on the season but also would be good to know botanical gardens or good markets.
