We added another tropical plant to the bonsai diaries. This one is also called madrono or bumpy lemon as the rind is quite unusual.
The fruit looks like a shriveled droopy lemon, and has a similar rind. The interior is soft white pulp and has a popular, slightly citrusy taste people have compared to a sweet santol fruit or lemony cotton candy. ~ Growables.org
This is another purchase from our favorite Etsy shop. The tree arrived safely and securely today. This one is a five year old - pretty close to fruit bearing age.
The seller is on (sc00bySnacks69) and provided
great support to all questions about the plant and care. Seller also shipped the plants very securely.
|Garcinia madruno latex drops|
This tree has latex, which is evidenced by some bright yellow droplets exuding from a light scratch on a leaf.

We are looking forward to trying some of these fruits in the near future from our own home grown tree.
