Madrono

Had a feast of this fruit this evening .
Was told it was an African Mangosteen , but after searching.. decided it could not be Garcinia livingstonei as foliage did not match ,, and eventually came up with this .. Rheedia madruno . It certainly looks very much like a mini Mangosteen . Hope the seeds sprout easily .

THe taste is like a lemon sherbet [sub-acid]. Fruit has to be ripe and orange , any sign of green and it will be as sour as . Foliage is so much like a MAngosteen , but smaller . Very short trees to be covered in so much fruit . Though they have been blown over in Larry , and still growing well. I picked a few kilos and still lots on the trees . Daleys do sell them and have a page about them , also information on a blog . Grows very well in wet tropics .

yes, I too have seen them at Daleys' however I don't think the weather in Sydney( which is where I am in), would be warm enough for it .

Its not my tree , but chatted with the owner who was selling raffle tickets in front of the stupor market . He planted large seedlings over 7 years ago .
Smothfield in Cairns is a very large growing suburb .. new Bunnings , and lots of development.

I tasted one of these fruiting at a nursery in perth. never seen it before. I liked it a lot.
Internet is somewhat contradictory on eventual size, although notes seem to agree it starts slow then takes off. Can any of you tell us what your Madrono did size wise?

Folks think this plant is brasiliensis - bakupari or bakupari-mirim. I recieved brasiliensis seedlings from NQ which seem to have a more rounded end to the leaves thant the ones we call madruno. Either way, I have two plants with slightly different leaves that will produce very similar fruits. I like the fruits and am not that bothered by their name. There is also another madruno that has a very bumpy skin.

Hi ive, got to say the pulp is minimal, but tasty,seeds are rather large and im sure there are better around, but its pest free and gets no attention at all.

Madrono and G.brasiliensis come in a number of varieties each with madrono being larger, more oval and bumpy in some types.Pulp ratio is not supposed to be as good as achachas with taste better in some of both species and worse in some of both.
The ones in David's pic look like small brasiliensis.Luckily I recently acquired seeds of large sweet varieties of madrono and brasiliensis so I gave away the plants I had of the common types.

I have a seedling of charichuelo, the bumpy elongated form of g. madruno. At least I hope I do. Looks more vigorous and tougher than other garcinias. This one is supposed to be one of the really good ones. There is also a rounded bumpy form which is more sweet than sweet-tart.

There is very high diversity right now David, but it is very localised to only a few m2.

My latest seeds are Garcinia sp.bicuda which are supposed to be the largest fruiting and best flesh yielding of the genus in south America.
