Unidentifiied Fruit tree in Thailand

Posted: 08/03/2016 at 07:03

Haven't heard back from the Thai farmer yet, but another Australian contact is suggesting avocado. 

She says "... It does look rather like avocado to me. The leaves look like the large avocado tree leaves we have..."

I'll let you know when we hear from the farmer ........

Hope everyone's travel arrangements go smoothly today

I'm back from my visit ....... I had to pass an area where there are major roadworks going on and a huge Park & Ride car park is being constructed - on a very low area of land near a Broad - most of it is under a substantial amount of water

A contact with a family farm in Thailand has sent the photo to her son to see if he can ID this for you.

Hi Lyn Wonky's tablet isn't an iPad (it's something else, not sure what)  - it would be much simpler if it was as her husband is an IT tech working on Apple products   I'm sure he'll fix it soon - I don't think she's asked him yet - he's very busy at work and as he has a health condition she likes him to rest when he comes home - she thought she'd done it herself but it seems it was only a temporary fix. 

Chicken stock made and veggies all prepped to make the soup so it's ready when I come home from my visit.

What about some hardy geraniums   You could use varieties that die down over the winter like G. phaeum  so the alliums are visible, and I find G. phaeums self-seed happily so you'll only need a few and they'll spread around your tree, but they're not difficult to control.

This one's pretty

A friend who's travelled extensively in China and south east Asia suggests that it may be a pomelo.

I am really surprised at some plants which are described as invasive. 

It almost seems that if a plant grows happily in the UK without turning up its toes at the slightest provocation someone somewhere will declare it to be set on world domination
