Related to cacao, the cupuassu is popular in its native Brazil, but little known elsewhere. Unlike cacao, the pulp of the large-fruited cupuassu is used rather than the seeds. Pulp is processed into beverages and desserts. A form of chocolate and cocoa butter can be made from the seeds. Fruit is highly sought after and production is thus far limited to Brazil where demand greatly exceeds supply. Leaves are large and much like the cacao tree. Fruits are borne on the trunk and apexes of main branches. Strictly tropical Cupuassu prefers a very humid environment with little temperature variation throughout the year, and mean temperatures around 24C. Trees need lots of water for good growth.

Despite being tropical the ambarella has proven to be quite hardy and are very fast to become established in the subtropics and fruit set begins after only three years. Tastes like a mix between pineapple and mango but with a crunchy texture. The part nearer to the peel is quite sour getting sweeter near the seed. The ripe fruit is also much sweeter than the less mature green fruit. In Indonesia, they are steamed and eaten as a vegetable with salted fish and rice and in Sri Lanka the raw fruit is mostly eaten fresh and cooked as a curry with chilli. As they mature the skin turns golden-yellow with an orange-yellow pulp surrounding a single large spiny seed. When ripe they have a pleasant pineapple-like fragrance. Growing conditions Like the Mango, the tree thrives in humid tropical and subtropical areas growing up to 2 metres in a single growing season. It grows on all types of soil as long as they are well drained. Trees are cold sensitive when small and should be protected from serious frost and strong wind. Trees do best in full sun, but will produce some fruit in light shade. As a large and vigorous tree they prefer not be planted underneath other large trees and unlike some mango varieties they are not too fussed on salt spray.

Lemon - Meyer

$37.00 ($37.00-$39.00 choose a size)

The popular Meyer is not a true lemon but likely to be a natural hybrid between a lemon and an orange. The lower acidity and reduced sourness makes it one of the most widely grown home-garden varieties. Very hardy and prolific. The fruits are a deep orange-yellow colour with thin skin and they are very juicy, making them perfect for use in dressings and marinades. The meyer is low in pectin.

Yellow Mangosteen

$34.00 ($24.00-$79.00 choose a size)

Yellow Mangosteen is a round fruit with very tart yellow segments. The high acidity makes it ideal for jams and jellies but removing the seed and skin can be time consuming. Easier to grow in the subtropics than the purple mangosteen, but the flavour is altogether different. The tree grows well in full sun and shade. It will tolerate and continue to fruit heavily in drought conditions. The tree is very attractive, with large drooping leaves and a layered form. The fruit can reach 8-10 cm in length and looks highly ornamental when in the tree.

I bought this plant to help with pollination of my other Garcinia's. But I also enjoy the the fruits. I've managed to get the seedlings up a bit more since I bought it from you and I have them in the open exposing them to Brisbane winters.

Five year old seedlings(2 years inground). Protected in winter with green house cover. Purple mangosteens apparently don't like being too close to the sea! I'm 300 meters away and both seem to be responding well and growing just as fast as the achachas...

I have a 5m tall mangosteen tree grown from a seedling through the post. I'm about 4km from the sea. I put it down the side of the house under some large palms between us & the neighbours house, it's growing beautifully. I'm hoping for fruit in Feb

Try growing them hydroponically in rockwool cubes w/acidic nutrient solution for first 10 months, with both foliar and root applications. Use excellent nutrients and avoid deficiencies. Frequent rooting gel apps every 10 days (place gel on lower stem).

Mangosteen is called the Queen of fruits in Thailand. I always eat it at least 1 kilo a times. I'm not kidding!!! I'm Thai and eat a lots. It is very nice. I really want to grow it at my place then I will have fresh mangosteen to eat as much as I can :)))

Mangosteen Purple

Is not pollinated, fruit and seeds are always clones of the parent. Ultra-tropical, killed at 4C. To grow properly it needs year-round hot, steamy weather. Not worth trying south of Mackay QLD. The best fruit in the world!
