Meet the cannonball tree

4 Aufrufe • 30.10.2021 • One of the most attractive tropical plants is the cannonball tree (Couroupita guianensis). First it produces fragrant flowers of incredible beauty. Later it forms a heavy round seed pod that looks like a cannon ball. Its flesh is edible though hardly ever eaten by humans because of its foul smell. We offer cannonball trees of all sizes at Discovery Garden Pattaya and Nong Khai.

Growing oranges and lemons from seeds

Valencia oranges are very popular all over the world. No wonder Hans Fritschi wants to grow them at Discovery Garden Pattaya as well. He therefore buys two Valencia oranges imported from China at the local supermarket and plants the seeds. Will that be a success? In the end one original Valencia orange can be spotted at Discovery Garden Pattaya.

Return to Discovery Garden Pattaya

After more than four months absence Hans Fritschi returns to Discovery Garden Pattaya. A lot has happened: The first Valencia orange has grown. New giant hybrid geese have arrived. Buffalo nuts (Traca bicornis) have finally developed. An expensive Monstera deliciosa Thai Constellation was sold, some more are for sale. And the Chinese olives are thriving.
