    I'm watching Fruit Hunters now on Science Ch. On Pluto tv. AWESOME. I WENT TO NEW YORK CITY and tasted fruit I never seen in any Grocery Stores Here in N.Y. State. TRAVELING IS KEY TO NEW FRUITS & FOODS.

    "Non-edible coolness" – Actually those are edible. If I'm right, those were torch gingers, whose flowers are often cooked in southeast Asian dishes. Also, do you have any videos on Fairchild's various Durian/Durio species they're growing? They supposedly are growing some who successfully flowered years ago, I'd LOOVE to see if they did more than just flower since then.

    Again great stuff. Love the mangosteen tree and mangosteens. Same for the durian and cacau and everything else. That crazy looking ginger was a heleconia. They are really easy to grow. You should be able to grow them outside where you are in Florida.

    I think Grimal grove in the keys has some mangosteens.

    Pete, you're doing so much better with your camera and the trip is such a wonderful place for us to learn so much. I just love the trees & flowers. It's so beautiful. Plus all of the people are wonderfully bright & happy. It makes for such a fun relaxing video, especially with the music in the video. Thank you for all of the effort & work you've put into the videos for all of us! XoXo

    Thank you for these videos. You have opened up a whole new world for me. Hearing that you can cook with the jackfruit and its seeds is something I would have never known. And it is so enjoyable to see your family and friends "geeking out" at the gardens.

    Great video! I always visit the chupa chupa tree when we go to Fairchild – Quararibea cordata. My favorite fruit. Noris told us theirs has never fruited and F&S said theirs hasn't fruited either. Such a delicious fruit. We had them in Ecuador (50 cents each). I've never seen a fruit in the US.

    No soursop or guanabana? Mangosteen is another one of my favs too.

    Noris can talk all day and I'm like a kid listening to story time.
