I was wondering if anyone knows where a person can get hold of jentik fruit seeds/seedlings in Australia. or if anyone is willing to share their jentik fruit seeds or seedlings

Any information would be much appreciated.
Thank you :)

Another interesting plant you are after Rich :) Are you from Malaysia yourself?

Known as jentik jentik OR gentik gentik is a dioecious plant, so it has to be ensured while planting that each female tree has a male tree too nearby.

Would Rambai be the same thing? http://tropicalfruitfarm.com.my/pdf/Rambai-k.pdf

Tropical Fruit Farm at Penang might give advice on where to buy plants in Australia: http://tropicalfruitfarm.com.my/

Would love to hear if you do find plants here for growing.

Quick search of Daleys themselves and they sell Rambai: https://www.daleysfruit.com.au/Rambai-Baccaurea-motleyana.htm

Hi Lissa,

I'm not from Malaysia, I have just been reading about these plants and the fruit sounds delicious, so thought I would try and find them.

Rambai seems to have a different botanical name to the jentik jentik, and the fruit described is different too.

But thanks for all your help, I'll keep hunting :)

Hi Rich

It is the wrong season for both Jentik (Baccaurea polyneura) and Olosapo so it's highly unlikely that you will find seeds at this time. Sounds like you need to establish some contacts in far north Queensland who might be able to assist you further.

In any case, I have found that other Baccaurea species were unable to survive in Melbourne as they seem to be strictly ultra tropical. Think you would need a heated glasshouse to have any chance of success. Cheers!
