Yellow Mangosteen

    19 responses

tr starts with ...
Picked some fruit today of this sour fruit .. it is edible and not as sour as I thought it would be . Another case of not believing what you read or hear to much . Very attractive large tree with lots of fruit . Unsure as to what species it really is as names are so hard to check . Species for sale here on Daleys looks nothing like this fruit . These are nearly perfectly round . Thats 5 sp. of Garcinia I am growing now , trying to get some more .. heard of another few spp. up on the tablelands .

Wow,
Nice sized tree tr!
Is it yours?
If so, how old?
It looks like what I've always known as G.xanthochymus
Very sour but palatable.
The fr. I've seen have often been pointed, though still within therange of expected variation.

Not mine , my garden is only 3 years old . It is in the front yard of a retired Italian canefarmer .Will try and find out the age , must be very old . Local grower has several thousand G mangostana that should have produced fruit this year , but the effects of cyclone Larry have done something strange .. maybe next year .

NO, these trees are approx 7 years old . Under ideal conditions they grow very fast . Canopy of Alexander palms , fertigation and 4m annual rainfall really help.

Hi Trikus.. I saw your comment on fertigation - can you help me please? I just installed a venturi system in my orchard (ie: liquids introduced thru' the retic lines - just so we are on the same page?) how often do you use it? also - what are u using with it? (eg: fert's, compost tea etc) and how do u work out what each tree is 'getting'? (i'm worried about burning my trees - we only get 450mm annually if we are lucky :(((

thanks

Being close to the reef has made responsible farmers look at different systems of fertilizing . We had a field day recently at this farm [ grower has mainly bananas ] and he is using a home made [secret] solution . An orchid grower I knew in Bundy , used a stainless steel 100 litre tank for his fertigation . He alternated between 4 different types . An organic one week followed by a chemical based one . Kelp , blossom booster , fish ? and a special orchid brand . He always used half to quarter strength , like the good orchid growers say " feed weekly and weakly ! "

Trikus, not from the single big tree on the mangosteen farm? Not Peter S the other Peter? I cleaned up half the crop last year if it is. It looks like the common form of G.xanthochymus but a large fruiting sour form of G.dulcis has fruit looking much the same.

This is my Garcinia Dulcis aka Maphut in Thailand.

Looks very different then yours Mike.

Mine has 3 stems grafted on it and had about 10 fruits but many more coming.

The vendor told me it's about 10 years old.

Mine has long thin drooping branches but i tied them up.

If the fruit is not nice i will graft achachairu onto it. It's very hard to find this fruit in Thailand, i wonder why. I've never been able to taste one.

My first flower. The tree is only 1.2m tall with eleven pairs of branches.
It survived 8 years in Melbourne, but seems to like the sub-tropics.
