Santol (Seedling) 8/10

RevNQ1's Edible Fruits
Update: 3696 days 15hrs

Comments: -

Some are flavourless, some are too acid, but get a good seedling or cultivar and they are EXCELLENT. Maybe not to rival a mangosteen, but similar.

you suck off the flesh from around the seed, like a sour fruit drop, and spit it out

very well suited to the dry tropics. beautifully formed tree, worthy just as ornamental

Sun/Shade: Full Sun

Water Given in: Winter

Pollination: Self Pollination

Fertiliser or Organics Used: good garden soil

Pest Control:

Never seen fruit fly in it. Never seen spoilage in the dry tropics, in wet tropics (cairns) they can have fungal problems
