I was wondering if anyone knows where a person can get hold of pitangatuba trees/seeds in Australia, and secondly if they will grow in Melbourne.

Any information on the tree would be much appreciated.

I'm hoping mine will fruit next year. They seems quite tough. I would not be able to comment on if they might grow in Melbourne though.

They can take a couple of months but fresh seeds usually are germinating within a month.My 35cm plant had one flower but it didn't set.Alan Carle is the only one I know who sometimes sells plants . Melbourne might be pushing it for them.

I'm on the verge of digging up my vexators. They always look sick. They've got until the end of the wet season to pick up their game.

After speaking to DAFF about the possibility of import, I think I might wait until one of you guys has some success and decides to sell seeds.

The quarantine requirements for this bad boy are pretty strict!

I ate my first pitangatuba today. It was ripe because it fell from the tree (in a netbag).

It was sour and very juicy. It had some fragrance but nothing to write home about.

I hope the next ones will be sweeter, i 'm not impressed by the fruit so far.

I just ate another pitangatuba, it was yellow/green and terribly sour. Passionfruit is much sweeter.

I have seen the video's from that guy (derek?) who made 100+ video's about fruittasting and he put it in his top 5 of best fruit. He lost all my respect now.

Passionfruit in Thailand from the shop is sweet these days, even my wife can eat those. They are purples.

They are not sweet compared to a mango but sure edible and better than the ones we had last years who were sour.

Now i would like to know how "sweet" or "sour" my garcinia dulcis are, today an old man (fruittree vendor i do trust) told me they are sweet. My tree dropped it's fruit but has many new flowers.

Hi Mike, I don't suppose you are interested in selling some of your seeds?
I'd love to try my luck at growing them down south.

Did you get much fruit Mike Tr? I'd still be keen on some seeds if they are available.
