Botanical Name: Garcinia Vleerackeii

Native to Mexico, Mexican Achachairu or Luc's Garcinia as it is called produces bright yellow fruit which are single seeded, typically as large as tennis balls, and have both a better pulp ratio and elegant subacid flavour that is considered superior to that of its much celebrated and close relatives, achacha and mangosteen. Slow growing, attractive tree with a spreading form and large leafed foliage that is waxy and deep emerald green. Cold tolerance slightly better than that of Achacha. A very exciting offering that is sure to become a standout in the Australian exotic fruit market.

Other Names: Mexican Achachairu, Limoncillo, Luc's Garcinia, #LS

Comments: -

I have 2 of these seedlings from a fellow Daley's forum member. There is a lot of hype around the world about this fruit so I expect it will be worth the wait.

Both trees are now planted in the ground, one in the front yard and one down the back. They were completely unaffected by the Sydney winter.

Height 15 Centimetres

Growing: In the Ground

Pollination: Self Pollination

I've read that these may take up to -2C as well as the Achacha.

Yes there sure is a lot of hype around this fruit but if it really tastes better then a mangosteen? That's quite something to state.
Waterfall says... [1680 days 1hrs ago]
I'm not sure it would taste better than purple mangosteen but the ability to grow something close in flavor in a cooler climate is very appealing.

who did you get them from? I'm after some myself.

I think it was BJ, it was a long time ago. Honestly these are the slowest growing fruit tree I have ever seen.

That looks nice and tall. How much taller did this get in the last year Mark? Certainly doesn't look like it got stunted by Melbourne winter. Mine is in its first year with me and only like 30cm tall with no flush of growth this year so far.
Markmelb says... [342 days 22hrs ago]
The top section flushed this year only one flush unfortunately - last year maybe did 2 - have y=to up pot in next sized Geopot

Lucs Garcinia - Limoncillo (Seedling)

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 289 days 20hrs

Comments: - Garcinia vleerackii. Really sulking. I am having a lot of trouble with this one. I suspect it migth improve as it gets bigger - but it's so slow growing that it might not get a chance, as it goes dormant over winter. I might have to pot it up now and wait another couple of years before I plant it out again.
I am impressed that it got through last winter ok though - given it's so small.

Planted: 2018

Sun/Shade: Medium Sun

Pollination: Self Pollination

Fertiliser or Organics Used: Organic acid lovers, sometimes Seasol and Organic liquid Dynamic Lifter

Question: Any tips or information on growing these would be really appreciated.
