Jurippa nowhere in Aust. offers pulasan trees for sale.Hawaii,malaysia and puerto rico are perhaps your only chances.Go for variety sibabat (seebibat) and start with seeds.They are more true than rambutans from seed.

Sadly Rich passed away last year , but his sons are still running the business . Trina gave me a special deal , I was lucky to get the last few sold and was sad to see them cark it .. Yes will struggle up there , another uber-tropical I thought . My go-between to Richs nursery died earlier this year also .. so must try and contact the guys and make sure they are checking the fruit trees .. Rosebud Nursery was one of the pioneers of the 'rare' fruit explosion back in the 80's .

http://nl.ebid.net/for-sale/borneofruit-nephelium-black-ramboutan-giant-pulasan-1-fresh-seedling-plant-rare-131902843.htm

I want to have some grafted plants of this giant black pulasan. Not from Dorgon though.

If anybody has a lead for me where to get it then please let me know. I will go there myself to get it but sending would also be great.

Yes i also guess it has to come from Malaysia, i think i fly to singapore and take the boat.

But my friend in Johor Bahru is looking as well for me, hope he finds it.

But do you think this pic is real Mike? Those pulasans are monsters, much bigger then the red one.
I really got to have one of those if they are real and won't give up.

I found grafted yellow rambutan here but don't know the variety so i don't care for it.

But my friends in Singapore also bought the small pulasantree and both of them died as well. I guess they hate citywater but then i can't grow them at all. Well i 'll try it one more time.

Linton says...
This is one of the Pulasan trees that germinated readily and easily from seed this past winter. They are just the normal size ones, not the giants.

I am a bit surprised how well they are going considering that they are supposed to be difficult to grow even in the tropics, let alone down here in Melbourne.

However I read that they are cold tolerant down to 1.7 deg C and it hasn't been that cold here all winter so that might explain why they have survived. Would be keen to hear if anyone has had success with growing Pulasans in temperate regions, even in Sydney or Perth. Thanks.

BK the yellow rambutan is R156, the large dark pulasan is called sibibat/seebabat and along with the Malaysian black it is the best variety and the most common.They can range over 110g but this is rare.They are easy to germinate.I doubt anyone has grown one successfully south of Townsville and they are actually less cold tolerant than rambutan and 9c causes distress for them.

Mike i have an airlayered yellow rambutantree but no varietyname...it was hard to find though. It has a double stem, i connected it to a red one and after it healed cut that one off.

I also had many pulasanseeds sent to me but they rot very easy. 3 survived though, one grows very well but the other 2 don't look so good.

Many Thai told me i can't grow pulasan here but so far they are still alive.

Is there a way to tell the gender of a seedling ? The biggest one is almost a meter tall now but i tipprune it all the time.

If you want seeds just try and try more, also Indonesia has them.

I'm still after more pulasanseeds or airlayered/grafted tree's, will pay well.

The yellows are R156.Pulasan hate chlorides and natural fertilisers are better.

I'd wager there's only a handful of decent trees around in the top end, no chance of growing them anywhere else. Ultra tropical.

I have planted four Pulasan's, they are 15 years old very, very healthy but no flowers. I have regularly fed them with potash and other nutrients, best rainfall in Australia but I suspect maybe lack of sunlight is the problem. They came from Limbelos nursery. They had a tree at the back of their nursery. Sorry no help for supplies, I wish I could!

Hi johnmay

Have you tried cincturing your pulasan trees to force them to flower and hence yield fruits afterwards. I have tried it in some of my trees not pulasan thou and it worked all the time.


Happy gardening :-)

How do you cinture an adult 20 year old tree. A single cut around? How deep. This sounds scary I grew up cinturing currant vines so I understand the process. Or do you mean a hormonal spray?

I'm far from a pulasanexpert (i killed many) but i read that they fruit best after a long dry season...

Also full sun will help i guess.

And they prefer organic fertilizers.

It's a sensitiv plant which loves high humidity...in Singapore there's a pulasanstreet (jalan pulasan), guess that's the ideal climate they prefer to live in.
Myself i just planted to budded ones and will not fertilize them at all, only give them mulch and loamy soil plus much water (citywater that is), best is rain/river/pond water i guess.

Eubenangee is the right climate and a few people have notice that particular lot of pulasan from limberlost are shy fruiters.Seedlings in you area can produce in their 3rd year.The more sunlight the better and a marcot might have been more reliable.Limberlost had access to about 6 varieties from kamerunga originally and sibabat is the good one.

Not
all tropical sites could
be selected for its
cultivation. High
humidity and well
distributed annual
rainfall of at least 200 cm is
required for its growth and
development. Well drained loamy soil with a PH of 5 to 6
and rich in organic matter is ideal for pulasan cultivation.
Availability of plenteous water and ample sunlight are

s h o u l d be filled with top soil mixed with 3
pots of well decomposed
cow-dung manure or
compost and
1 kg of Rajphos or
S u p e r p h o
sphate. Make a
planting hole at
the center of
the pit having
the size of the
budling soil ball.
Although pulasan
prefers lots of organic matter
for flourishing, judicious application of compound
fertilizers is recommended. Consider giving 10 to 20 kg of
leaf litter/compost annually to correct micronutrient
deficiency, if any.

Fortunately, pests and diseases have not been a major
problem in pulasan. Sometimes mild infestation of
mealybugs on fruits is observed. They could easily be
managed either by spraying 10 ml/l Verticillium or dilute
solution of neem soap

*** This is praying of 10ml/l verticillum i don't understand, verticillum is not something you want to have on your tree's but maybe i understand this wrong since i'm not a botanist.

Since my original posting discovered fruit developing. Hip Hora! Thank you all for your information. I realize my problem has been that I planted in a rich valley (Durian love it) but on good days only gets 7 hrs of sun and some years 3-5 months no sun. Interested to try cinturing. Your information about Limberlost very interesting as two different times of purchase has resulted in different leaf size on my tees.

Hi Johnmay

Good on you mate! After more than a decade of feverish anticipation, at last the sumptuous mouth watering fruits of your labor is nearly within your reach. Too bad you can't share them with us. They don't travel well those fruits isn't it?

Happy gardening :-)
