Baccaurea dulcis
« on: September 03, 2019, 10:03:07 PM »
So this is a fruit that I originally got my material from Jim West several years ago when he stayed on my farm for a few days. I admit I wasnít very convinced by this fruit the first time it produced but now it seems pretty good. It reminds me of some tampoi I had in Malaysia. As you can see itís an abundant producer. Now that the mangosteens are done Iím going to promote this fruit at the farmers market. Itís not mangosteen but not bad either!

Peter, how long did it take your trees to start producing (how old)?

Yes, this specie is diocious. It took five years to begin production.
Iím planning on offering it at the farmers market this Saturday.  Iím sure it will take lots of sampling but Iím used to that.  Itís interesting to see the responses of people while trying fruits they e never seen before.  Iíve got lots of other baccaureas and garcinias in the pipeline that nobody has had here before.

Have some fruit that look similar to yours in May in Bangkok, they were quite good, I never knew if they were Mafai(Baccaurea Ramiflora) or Rambai, they were sweet with a bite of astringency close to the seed

The skin on that baccaurea is quite thin.  They look a little like b. motyliana.  Thereís so many!
