Garcinia forbesii

    5 responses

The poster formerly known as... starts with ...
A nursery in NNSW is currently selling G. Forbesii (Kandis). Supposedly one of the best garcinias ex Alan Carle, so I'd expect them to be good coming from his collections. It costs 30 to ship a box, it only $8 or so per plant, so I was wondering if any other Brisbane folks wanted to split an order to make the best of the combined postage. He also has a Garcinia sp Magagascar, which is supposedly similar, but distinct from Imbe (G. Livingstoneii) and if it came from Alan Carle, I'd expect it to be superior... Any interest, otherwise I'll just take a drive down at some stage in the new year.

They are not all that good and I pulled out my tree to make space for better Garcinias.

Is the other one G.buchania or a name like it? I grew some seedlings from an African source if it is and gave them away.Alan Carles G.forbesii are quite small fruited and he was selling trees for about 40 bux at a fruit stall last year.

Al, it's Kris at Burringbar. He also does Bangalow Market sometimes. He has quite a bit, but only those and yellow in stock now I think.

Mike, I thought you said they were worth growing? I've heard mixed reports, but also that many folks might be mixing up this one and parvifolia? Since you've tasted them, how do they stack up against achachairu? I'm resigned to the fact that I'll never get anything out of peter and Trina's, so won't ever get Russell's swet in my yard, so I'm just working with what is possible.

Kris was up in Cairns a few weeks ago and visited a few farms including Alan Carles. He was supposed to come to my place but never made it.
The red sour skin is the main part to use in cooking and the flesh is OK but scant.The are way inferior to achachairu.
I reckon dulcis and xanthochymus are hardly worth it because they are sour.
I haven't really shared much with my daleys forum chums in a while and have around 10 odd mostly single Garcinia seedlings and have male and female Russells sweet in the ground but they are small.What are you after? If my seeds of G.magnifolia,macrophylla and oblongifolia come up I might be able to share some.
