I found this poster on another site and thought that it might be useful on this forum.

That is a very nice poster.

RE: Fruits of Trinidad & Ttobago

Good poster. Some errors. For example, the picture of the lychee is actually a rambutan and the picture of the pitomba is actually a species of Talisia also known as pitomba. The first edition of this poster was horrible. About half of it was errors with the taxonomy.

I gave an actual full sized copy of this poster to Excalibur Fruit Trees in Lake Worth. It is hanging up in the front of the nursery to help people from Trinidad find the trees they are looking for.

I thought their lychee were a rambutan also, but then there is a much more obvious picture of a rambutan labeled "rambutan." The lychee still looks hairy to me though.

RE: Fruits of Trinidad & Ttobago

I just came back from Trinidad yesterday, I brought this poster back with me. They also have one on the vegetables of TT.
If you're interested in reading more about the fruits of Trinidad I wrote an article with photos I took.

Good article. I would really like to visit La Vega next time I am in Trinidad. I just don't know when that will be.
