Achacha Fruit

Post by Blairs » Mon Feb 10, 2014 6:21 pm

What do we know about Achacha/Garcinia humilis? I found some fruits in M&S. Tastes quite pleasant, not unlike Lychee but milder and sweetish but not too sweet. Anyone tried to grow the seeds? I opened one up and it reminds me of Mango seed but green like a Pistachio. I will try germinating the seeds for the sake of doing so and out of interest but any feedback is most welcome icon_salut

Incredibly slow growing, as are all Garcinia, even here in the tropics. Not sure if you need male and female plants of this species to get fruit but with many mangosteens you do. The fruit is delicious like you say so worth persevering with.

No problem icon_thumright

I would love to have one but far too slow growing for me. Good luck!
