Product description

The Kasturi mango is a delicious, sweet fruit with juicy flesh. At about 5 cm, the fruit is smaller than an ordinary mango and weighs between 50 and 80 grams. It is a rare species from the far south of Borneo where it occurred around the town of Banjarmasin. Unfortunately, natural populations have disappeared due to deforestation and the species is extinct in the wild. Because of its delicious flavour, the Kasturi mango is still cultivated on a small scale, so it has not completely disappeared. 

The tree can reach a height of 30 metres in the tropics and can withstand wet conditions well. Year-round, the tree can flower and thus produce fruit. When ripe, the fruits take on a purple-blue skin, have dark orange flesh and also spread a lovely scent. 
In Europe, the species can be kept as a houseplant or in a heated greenhouse or conservatory. Provide well-drained soil and water the plant regularly.

Sowing instructions: First soak the seed in lukewarm water for a few hours. Then sow in sowing mix and allow to germinate at 25-30 degrees Celsius. Keep soil constantly slightly moist. Germination usually takes several weeks.

I received the package containing the seed in just over a week here in Italy, everything as described, the seed is in perfect condition shipped inside an envelope with damp moss, the seed has already germinated with several developed roots. Recommended, I will buy from you again. Thank you

Werd snel bezorgd en zag er goed uit.
Het zaad was al open en leek al te kiemen.
Helaas is het vrij snel daarna afgestorven.
Dus ik kan de kiemkracht niet beoordelen.
Mogelijk heb ik zelf een fout gemaakt of was het zaad niet blij met de verplaatsing nadat de kieming al begonnen was.
De volgende keer bestel ik de zaden zodra ze op voorraad zijn om ze zo vers mogelijk te krijgen.
