Mangifera odorata

Variety:

Kwini

Scientific Name:

Mangifera odorata

Origin:

Costa Rica

Prices:

5 seeds for 25 USD

The Fruit:

We love Mangiferas and to find these made us very happy and curious. Kwini is super sweet and has an amazing Jungle Mango aroma. It has a distinct strong spicy taste accompanied by a smell that will turn our head on the market and fill our room when we take them home. Unlike other wild M. species it is edible close to the skin as well. Our favorite wild Mangifera so far.

Similar to the purple-brown variety, under the hard green skin you will find a sweet rubbery thick flesh around the single seed. The fruits are a bit smaller.

Pometia pinnata

Variety:

Fijian Longan

Scientific Name:

Pometia pinnata

Origin:

Costa Rica

Prices:

5 seeds for 10 USD

The Fruit:

Also called matoa or kristal, a relative of lychee. The fruit is bigger, about 4-5 cm long. The dark purple-brown skin is hard and breaks on pressure to reveal the thick flesh around the seed. The taste is sweet with a wildness that reminds me of durian. Locals also eat the seed roasted or boiled.

Salacca zalacca

Variety:

Salak, Pondok

Scientific Name:

Salacca zalacca

Origin:

Costa Rica

Prices:

5 seeds for 10 USD

The Fruit:

For a month we were avoiding the brown salak in Borneo because we don't like the astringent taste it usually has. Then a vendor gave me one from Java as a gift and I was blown away. It has a flowery sweet typical salak taste, with NO astringency at all.
