Limberlost

    8 responses

Daka starts with ...
Has anyone heard of the limberlost tree? The only thing I can find out about it is on the rfcarchives.org.au/Next/CaringForTrees/FruitTreesSpeciesList122-02.htm
Does anyone know if it is known by another name or how I can find out more about this tree. Many thanks

Hi Daka

It might be a rare variety of canistel (pouteria campechiana) since it is under the main heading of canistel together with the other two p. campechiana varieties; aurea and gray both known egg fruit cv's in RFCA archives fruit tree species list including the varieties of the other main fruit tree species.

Limberlost fruit tree is also a variety of breadfruit tree namely; limberlost summer yellow and limberlost winter white if you are looking for a breadfruit variety.

One question, what fruit are you really looking for?

Happy gardening :-)

HI Fruitylicious1,
I was given 2x germinated seeds from a lady I have bought a few plants from including red durian and yellow monthong durian. I had asked about what they were but didn't get a reply so that's why I asked.
All she said previously that it was a limberlost. I didn't even know they were durian lol so when I googled limberlost I wasn't getting anywhere except the NQ nursery.
They are growing happily so far in a pot but I wanted to find out more to ensure I take good care of them. Many thanks for your comments!!
I did end up getting a reply today from the lady who germinated them. She said it is a hybrid developed by limberlost nursery from their best durian stock. the fruit flesh is apparently quite white and creamy and less stringy than most other varieties. She said it is the most sort after variety in NQ and most durian in the backyards up there come from this nursery.She include 2 pictures of the fruit

Hi Daka

I am also elated that you are finally sorted out. Take good care of your precious gems and maybe after close to a decade you might get to taste your hopefully high quality breed of Durian if they grow true to type which is less likely but, there is always a chance that something special will come out from seedling grown trees.

Happy gardening :-)

Hi Daka

Just a thought, if you want to halve the waiting period of your first Limberlost durian harvest use one of your seedling as a root stock after a year. Maybe the lady who gave you the seedlings have a mature Limberlost durian tree where you can ask for a budwood to graft to your seedling. If successful within 4-5 years your durian tree will bear fruit instead of maybe 7-20 years.

Happy gardening :-)

If you want limberlost durian i would try to graft the seedling or just buy a grafted tree.

Seedling durians grow very tall, grafted tree's much smaller and fruit faster.

Be aware that a high quality durian should have tiny undeveloped seeds..lately i bought great durians but they were full of huge seeds (chanee).
Mongthong tastes almost the same and has much less big seeds.

Long lablae has thick sweet flesh, less odor, and tiny undeveloped seeds.
It's a premium durian from thailand.

I don't know limberlost but best is to check it our first before planting the tree (unless you have plenty of space). Myself i would go for a grafted tree only.
