Durian + Salak Seedlings – South Florida


Hey all,

In the event you’ve traded with me earlier than, you understand I like to gather & develop, however have super-limited house to maintain most crops to maturity. I am certain many on the discussion board can relate.

My intention with this put up is to offer away the next seedlings to these in Zone 10+ (Florida) to get a few of these species higher established within the States. I would favor to fulfill in particular person reasonably than ship. Sorry to these that are not within the correct rising zone, however as my intention is to offer these away, it will be throwing my money and time down the drain to ship them to dying.

“Rainbow” Durian aka Pelangi Durian (Durio zibethinus) – Sourced from Papua, Indonesia; vendor has offered me the next data for this cultivar: It’s a candy and creamy Durian common for its sporadic crimson coloration; the odor shouldn’t be intense. The crimson coloration happens from blended genetics – these have naturally hybridized over time with D. graveolens. Fruit manufacturing begins between 3-5 years and peak manufacturing begins between years 7-10.

  • I at present have a complete of 12 Durian seedlings. They’re a number of months previous, and the bulk survived the temps dipping into the 40s a few weeks in the past with restricted safety. True Leaves are rising on all seedlings. With their fats taproot, these Durians should be planted within the floor ASAP to keep away from root points. I’m maintaining a tally of 3 extra seedlings which will or might not survive. I’m offering these seedlings in teams of three or extra.
    In case you are , I ask you meet the next situations:
    • Are literally all for rising these to maturity. Any intention to resell these will probably be met with the fury of 10,000 Suns.
    • Have ample yard house/situations to develop these bushes to maturity. Durians like full solar, water, vitamins, and so on; instructed spacing between bushes is 30-50ft. Im assuming if youre , you understand what work it will take.
    • Keen to coach/prune the tree. It is a obligatory step in a younger Durian bushes life, particularly in consideration of future high quality and amount of the fruit produced.

Moreover, I’ve 34 Sidempuan Snakefruit (Salacca sumatrana) I’m seeking to give away for a similar purpose. Right here is the knowledge I’ve offered by the vendor: It is a selection not extensively recognized or cultivated exterior of Padang Sidempuan, Sumatra (supply). The tree itself is smaller and shorter than its common cousin, Salacca zalacca, however is reported to have a tastier fruit. The flesh of the fruit has sporadic crimson coloration. This tree is an understory/shade-loving tree, good to plant in clumps underneath one thing bigger you might have fruiting proper now. The draw back to this selection, as with most snake fruit, is there are numerous spines on the tree, and atleast 1 male plant is required for pollination. Not instructed for these with younger children. First harvest usually happens between 3-5 years.

  • I ask that you simply meet the identical primary standards as outlined for the Durians; after all, nutrient and rising situations will probably be totally different. I’ll solely be giving these out in teams of 4 or extra.

I am not in search of something in return, however attempting a number of the fruit in X quantity of years can be appreciated I am prepared to work with folks you understand not on this discussion board as properly, in the event that they meet the factors.

Thanks for yall’s curiosity and in case you have ideas or recommendation to offer on this put up, please accomplish that. I’m actually no Durian skilled.
