Rambai (Baccaurea motleyana)

The fruits hang in long stalks from the branches in bunches, and are small and round with acid to sweet flesh. Comes from South East Asia.

 

Soil
Characteristics
Wide range of soil types provided drainage is good
Climate Requirements Warm humid areas - can grow in most parts of the tropics and subtropics.Frost tender

Culture

Young trees need protection from cold wind. Light feeding frequently. Not pruned as this promotes vegetative growth, preventing flowering.
Harvesting Harvest is in late winter. Strings of fruit are picked when they go white. Can be rather acid if picked early, so taste test.
Length of time
until first crop
Four years.
Marketing Notes Short storage potential, and high acidity. Most useful as an attractive and edible backyard tree but with little commercial potential.

 

Food Preparation

Useful as jams, jellies, pickles and chutneys, but a lot of work to remove skins and seeds.

Rambai Dessert
