Wow, I might have to take a day off and get down there. Want to trade some of your Mangosteen seeds Mary? I've read they can do well in a pot.
Those Durian's are a perfect size for one.

Hahaha vict; of course she wouldn't or you won't keep going back. No I didn't notice sapotes but then I wasn't looking for them.

Mangosteen seeds, John Mc? Have not noticed any so far. Sure you can have them if I find any - do I dry them or what?

I often visit Canley Vale nursery and you can pretty much always buy these fruits from the street in Canley Vale.

wow. You either got incredibly lucky or it's some kind of seedless CV I've never tried.

I regard purple mangosteen as the best fruit in the world.

It's probably common knowledge to those in the tropics, but when in Bali, I learnt that the protuberances on the bottom of the fruit match the number of segments inside. In this pic you will see six, that relates to six edible segments inside, and they vary in number, for what it's worth.

Oh, if you find any seeds Mary, just wrap them in damp tissue paper.

OK John; just had the rest for morning tea; one of them had two seeds and two had one. Then there's one with a very small seed. Will put in post for you; I should have your address somewhere.

Purple mangosteen is a good fruit. Not quite as good as a Mango, Cherimoya, Apricot or Cherry but pretty close!. Sapodilla is nearly up there on that second tier too.

I rate it above all of those easily, apart from mango. On a different day I might day mango is the world's best fruit. Apricot--no way!

Well there's apricots and then there's apricots. Probably the most variable fruit between a good one and a crappy one. Couldn't say I've ever eaten a mango that's better than the best apricots. Only ever eaten good cherimoyas in Mexico but I've always wondered if the fact I'd lost 15kilos during the trip and only weighed 50.0kg enhanced my flavour due to starvation Lol.

Unless you've grown your own Apricot in the southern states (and not one of the canning varieties), you've never tasted how good a ripe apricot can be.

Many thanks Mary, in return, can I tempt you with two Sumo mandarin seeds? So far I've found four seeds in six kilo's of fruit. Or, if you're into chilli's, my Rocoto tree is loaded, can send you a box full.

That's OK John; I have the Rocoto too; it's a fruit fly magnet and I'm wondering if I should get rid of it. :) Our local Woolies are selling the Sumo right now. I don't think I'll bother raising trees from seeds anymore. The mangosteen seeds are in the post.

I visited Cabramatta for the first time today, I may have been a bit early though as lots of things I wanted to try were not available yet. It would be nice if they put labels on the fruit too, its hard to guess what everything is.

Here is what I got. Lychee tastes much better than longan, more complex flavour. Red dragonfruit is sweeter than white but tastes the same generally. Nam doc mai mango, wow! super sweet delicious flavour, makes me wonder why most shops only sell Kensington Pride. I was also hoping to try jackfruit but they only had Durian and I wasn't game to try it plus its impossible to grow here anyway.

I have found the nam doc mais can be hit and miss. Some years its excellent and some years not. I even tried it in singapore (import from thailand) and sadly that year was a miss.

I am beginning to wonder mangos are a bit like wines, some region and select years can make a big difference in taste. Ie i have found some NT kps to be awesome, but the same cant be said for qld kps in late 2014.

The dragon fruit sold at stores aren't really representative of how good they can be.

Lychees are definitely better than longan and they are better than rambutans also. These are really just sweet and without complexity.
