Hello rayandgwenn,

Looks really tasty! I am curious how that Lemon drop mangosteen taste.

I agree- year round fruit is an enjoyable feature of living in the tropics.

The lemon drop mangosteen are ok- they remind me of Sweet Tart candy. Cons- Low fruit to seed ratio and you have to suck the fruit from the seed. Cons- it is quick to fruit, has an interesting taste and it fruits a number of times a year.

LOL! It's one of those..."holy sh$$!! I've fruited a garcinia plant!!"! Every several fruit you get one that is really really good. Like Gwenn says...most are a bit tart but you can taste a potential. Still worth adding to your collection.

Nice pic Gwenn. How are your plants doing? Last time you mentioned losing some from the rains??

Hey Jay-
Still wet...lost the rambutan (which still hurts) and losing a number of the old grapefruit trees (not really too sad about those).
I really didn't have the desire to trek around in the mud for a long while, so many of the trees really need TLC, fertilizer and some insect soap spraying.
Next up: to cut down the dead stuff and things that don't thrill me to make room to plant stuff that is still in pots.
Then onto searching for another R162 Rambutan!

Frankies may be your only option for grafted plants any more.
