I have the only flowering 'R-167' rambutan (Nephelium lappaceum) in the continental United States; in fact, I believe I have the only 'R-167' rambutan in the continental United States. The total number of species accessions in my germplasm collection is well over 50, several of which I suspect are unique introductions to the U.S. (my Garcinia sp. 'pungara's, for example). Also, a book I edited on prospective fruit, vegetable and nut crops for Puerto Rico was finally published a couple of weeks ago. I'm so sure the rest of the members of this board are fructicultural neophytes, I'll offer a fresh 'Black Gold' jackfruit to anyone here who can best my achievements in tropical pomology!
