My grafted duku johor and longkongs had their first flowers after 6 years but no fruit set.My marcotted duku-langsat has not set a flower after 5 years.They better get their act together soon as I need space.I had a selection of duku,langsat and even kokosan seedlings from Malaysia but gave them all away as I knew they would take too long to fruit.

Nice tree's , perfect for a small garden.

Is there much difference in taste between longkong and duku/langsat?

Their fruit look the same to me but this year i will try all of them.

All the more reason why I want to move north. Already have a son in Cairns and one in Darwin, which to choose?

Well, I haven't been to Darwin in over a decade, but from what I remember there's not much of a reason to move there unless you need to go for employment. Dry heat probably not especially good for tropicals. Cairns all the way IMO.

John longkong is best and almost seedless with little variation in this thai variety.Duku-langsat is around the same size and sweetness but in looser bunches and seeds are more frequest.Duku is highly variable and either side of golf ball size often with one or two swollen segments with a seed.Teranganu and johor are well known sweet types.Langsat are smaller generally and a bit more sour but cold tolerant.Utteradit and paete are well know types.Latex,seeds,tree shape,fruit flavour,hairy foliage and a few other characteristics distinguish them.
It appears they have been domesticated a long time and constitute a couple of closely related species merged and now a few are apomyctic.Kokosan is much like the wild type.

Mike, you kindly sent me some seeds of Duku-langsat and Lansium from memory a couple of years ago, but the cold got the better of them. I should be grateful for the cold tolerant edibles that do thrive here in my climate.

Darwin and the surrounding area is ok for durian,mangosteen,rambutan and virtually all the equatorial.The dry season is a bit harsh and so trees need irrigation then and rainfall total is around the 1600mm/yr.This year in Cairns has been highly irregular for weather.The wet season was weak with less rain than usual but the dry season never started.It is the end of June and I have had 36 days of rain in the last 46 days.

I bought a kg of longkongs because a very friendly american asked for the seeds.

On the markets i also asked for langsat but they acted like i'm crazy to ask for those, they are not nice according to 5 thai i asked.

So i'm eating the longkongs but i can't even eat 2 of them, so nice they are.

Then my wife said don't send these seeds because they are not nice....I asked her if there are better ones and what they're called, they are from Yala province but she doesn't know wether they are the same or not.

Anyway, i won't send these seeds and look/wait for better ones.

Are there also good/bad ones in langsats? Sure i 'll find them one day but i need the best ones for my friend. What's their name?

If anybody wants those seeds as well then let me know.

Right now i have rambutan rongrien seeds looking for a new home.

I bought longkongs from Utteradit today and this one i like. They are sweeter and less bitter but the seeds are very thin.

I even thought they were seedless. Let's see what my wife thinks of these.

Mike longkongs normally have a thick seed right? I don't know if these are viable, they are like orange seeds but very flat, you even don't notice them when you eat a fruit.

Now i start to understand that people like longkongs, bangkok has bad bitter ones on most markets. I bought these on the or-tor-kor market in front of the royal project shop (in case anybody wants to know).

Also for langsat i guess you have a much better variety then the Thai.

longkong "tan yong mat" is the one to go for Mike.

There are many different longkong variety's my wife told me.

The one from utradit is nice but from Yala is the best she said. this one i have now is seedless so i still can't send the seeds.
