Good looking flesh. Is it firm or soft and melting? Flavour descriptions in literature are differing - how did you find it's taste?

There are alot of varieties around and low fibre,thin rind,mango and paw paw taste rather than pumpkin are qualities to look for.I have eaten 5 or 6 types in the last few week and this is one of the best.

Looks like you've got top notch fruit there Mike, those flavour and flesh descriptions sound very good.Picture 1 is certainly impressive in size too, but they all look yum. Are there any efforts to commercialise them?

A whole lot of fruit types brought in from Latin America and SE Asia in the 1970' and 80's were conidered for commercialisation.The programs lost funding or trials were followed through so not many got established.They are a commercial crop in central america,peru,brazil and colombia.There are several lines in oz and even more poor types.

All the more reason to propagate the good ones, Mike. You have great 'show and tells' :) I have never heard of or seen many of the fruit that you have shown, and this Matisia is one of them.

A loss to us all in being side-lined from production, but glad to hear there are good strains still available if the interest were to be picked up again - hope they don't get "lost" in backyards. I do envy your choices of fruit Mike! Another fruit to add to my must try list. Oneday....

Don't know why, but I've become "Anonymous" instead of "VF". Strange.

That's interesting Trikus. Would be good to know if we have the highland genes, not just for taste, but we in the sub-tropics could have a real crack at these fruit.

John Mc and David, that's really good to hear. I hope you keep us updated with any progress. If I develop more warm, protected pockets, I might have to grovel for some seeds. :)

Fine looking Durian Mike, and so white too! Makes it appear creamy.

Trikus the word I have from south America is that good ones are hard to come by.I have been sending some matisia seeds to south America as ours seem to be the better selections.They are in the deep end of the gene pool so there is no founder effect going on.
VF it was creamy but it wasn't the pick of the litter.The monthong has been attacked by a triped posum.The gan yeow will be eaten tomorrow.

David, I nearly forgot to mention there's a Phillipine & Asian supplies store on Tottenham St, opposite the Buranda store complex , have you seen it? Amongst other things, there's a variety of preserved tropical fruits.

Long time since this thread was active so here goes. Went to Indooroopilly to do some shopping went to that great fruit shop near coles and spotted Matsia fruits $14.99 a kilo got 2 fruits. In nearly 30yrs living in Brisbane never seen these for sale. Taste wise bit mango and rockmelon, but it had excessive fibre a bit off putting. Good taste though. 3 seeds per fruit. Will try to post pics
