Missing in Australia - Julie Beyer

In Australia, a missing person is defined as anyone who is reported missing to police, whose whereabouts are unknown, and where there are fears for the safety or concern for the welfare of that person.
A long-term missing person is someone who has been missing for more than three months. In Australia there are over 2,600 people listed as a long term missing person.
Julie Beyer is one of these people.
Julie Beyer, aged 43 at the time of her disappearance, was last seen in the Lavington NSW area on 9 July 2004.
At the time, Julie had been working in NSW as a legal secretary. Julie resigned, and was planning to move to Mackay, Queensland, where she had rented a house. Prior to her disappearance, she had moved some of her belongings into storage, but disappeared whilst running an errand in her car, a white Daewoo Nubria station wagon with NSW Rego number: YIT 763. No trace of Julie, or her car, have been found to this day.
One source says that she was last seen in July by her 16 year old son, Mat, packing her car at her house in Albury. However, other reports say that at the time, her son was living in Melbourne with his father.
His father called the police when Julie failed to answer her phone for two days in a row, unusual behaviour for Julie. “She just stopped answering our calls, and eventually her phone switched itself off,” Mat says. “Her bank account was never touched again. Her car was never found. She never renewed her licence.”
However, another source reports that there were various cash withdrawals from her account up until September 10. Thousands of dollars left in the account after that date indicates that there was not a third party using her account.
On the day Ms Beyer left Albury she had been discharged from hospital where she was an involuntary patient being treated for mental illness. She is reported to need medication to treat possible schizophrenia.
Another source reports that in August 2004, Julie attempted to make contact with her family, but after then, nothing more was heard from her.
A coronial inquest in Albury in 2012 concluded that sadly, Julie was likely to be dead. Deputy state coroner Mr MacMahon says it is likely Ms Beyer died while travelling to the Northern Territory to meet her other son in Katherine. Police believe that Julie may have travelled through Dubbo, Bourke , Maryborough , Gympie and Tennant Creek in the months following her disappearance.
Mat remembers his mother as a loving woman who was content in her life, and who made fabulous burritos and baked goods after shifts working as a dental nurse or, in later years, in the office of a law firm.
At the time of her disappearance Julie had a medium build, long light brown hair and blue eyes. She is 170cm tall. She may be driving a white Daewoo Nubria station wagon with NSW Rego number: YIT 763.
Anyone with information about Julie should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page: https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au/

It seems likely that misfortune has occurred in this case, with mental illness probably playing a part. As always when I post about a missing car, bodies of water are discussed. I wonder if this was a mental health episode, a suicide, or a pure accident. And I wonder what Julie was doing between July and September. I can't find any CCTV footage from banks or ATM's where she would have been withdrawing cash, which is odd. I hope that she can be found, so that her family can be at rest.

Questions Answers
What do you think the next big thing will be? A while back kiwis, mangoes, and pomegranates were not very common, now they are relatively common. What is next? I would like to see jackfruit as the next big thing -- if india decideds to do a lot of research and marketing it could be -- that and well you already see the other garcinias and not just mangosteen. i dont like the network marketing part of it. mens more spam in the email!
Let's say I want to make the world's most expensive fruit salad. What 5 ingredients do I need, and how much should I be charging per serving? White-fleshed mango from Bali, coco-de-mer from Seychelles, kura-kura durian from Borneo, baobab fruit, and your favorite childhood fruit = Priceless. - Y.
How did you end up a fruit hunter? Did you just love fruit, search for it, and then realize that you were suddenly all over the world trying new fruit? Or did you already travel a lot for another reason and then decide to start trying out different fruits? Evolution, I did a lot of traveling as a news photographer. but I was already into the fruits. Maybe becasue my father would bring home figs and persimmons and mangos which were pretty unusual for early 1950s chicago. -- there is so much fruit out there to try -- im planning on being back in India next year and have a whole new area to check -- could spend 3 lifetimes just in south india!
Is there a specific process you go through when tasting fruit, as with wine or coffee, or do you just go for it? We tried for years to come up with flavor wheels for fruit like they have for wine but we cant -- at least I and other chefs cant -- tehre is no way to describe the taste of many fruits in conventional terms or by compariosns with conventional foods.--
if you have time for a 3rd question: Is there any really great fruit to be found in the midwest? There has to be wild berries in the midwest and pawpaws. kind of papaya relative. other rare varieties of apples, peaches -- and even persimmons. Along the mississippi in Iowa there are wild persimmons that the indians planted and used -- k
What's the sweetest fruit that might be available in North America for purchase? What is your all time fav one texture wise and describe please. Sweetest I think would be abiu but only in florida unless you got them to send it to you -- its kind of like a sweet vanila pudding -- too sweet for some at our farmers markets-k.
Try the miracle fruit * you can get it shipped from miraclefruitman.com. Any of the sweetest mango varieties especially alphonsos. Check out the Int'l Mango Festival in Miami too. I got to try mangos that taste like pina colada, creme brulee and lemon meringue pie. All time fav is a tuff one to answer. Usually fave fruit is the one you get invited to eat in someone's backyard collection. Recently, durian in our fixer's mother's backyard in Bali.
How can people who are not "fruit hunters" get their hands on some of the more exotic specimens in the film? Depends on where you are, the easy answer is come visit hawaii (_) otherwise try the ethnic markets, hispanic, asian etc. - large wholoesale fruit markets in big cities too.-k
Say I'm already in HI (Aloha!), what should I look for and where? I've already found mangosteen, dragonfruit, etc in our farmers market - any more suggestions. Depends on the island but frankies in waimanalo is good -- keauhou farmers market here in kona. Hilo sometimes -- ono farms on maui.
Where in Hawaii? Is it possible to get Peanut Butter Fruit anywhere on Kauai? Yes -- john anderson has some on kauai - find our HTFG group there or check with scott at the NTBG.
Hello Ken! I loved reading about your farm in the Fruit Hunters and have noticed that you have been getting a lot of attention in other media too! Is it possible to come visit your farm in Hawaii? I was really interested in trying when I was on the Big Island in March, but your website seemed unclear on whether folks could just roll up and visit. Suggestions? I have to get my first knee replaced in december so i cant really get around to much right now which is why all this other stuff seems to pop up. Still you know know -- best thing is to email before you head back.
Have you ever had a mayhaw? I'm going to collect some this week to make some jelly. Nothing beats mayhaw jelly... Wow, ive not had that in years! last time was when i stopped in Cleveland Miss. driving south to Coffeeville. something that should really be better marketed outside the region -- like scupperdongs etc. k.
Are Scupperdongs related to scuppernongs? Same thing -- i just cant spell.
Hi Ken. What is the rarest and most unusual fruit you have hunted? Also, what do you use to take down your prey? Hi, Probably the kokum which is found only in South India -- and now in Kona. First cousin to mangosteen but not as cloyingly sweet..k.
I'll get the fruit down anyway I can but on one kokum hunt I was walking down a trail which turned into a bigger trail and when i went around the bend I was 10' from a wild elephant! He didnt want to share his bouty so we went separate ways (_)-k
Have you ever found any Devil Fruits? Specifically the Pika-Pika no Mi? 悪魔の実 i like logia.
In Mexico there is a fruit that goes by the name of "Rambutan" or something like that. Have You had it? What sort of taste did it have? Rambutan is fairly common -- it originates from SE Asia.. tastes like lychee in fact its called the hairy lychee.k.
Have you ever accidentally eaten poisonous fruit? Nope (knock wood)-I have to be pretty sure what it is before I'll try it.-k.
Any fruits you'd recommend for a southern California homeowner looking to try something new? You already responded to another question regarding poisonous fruits, but I'm curious - what kind of scrutiny do fruits undergo before opening them up to a larger audience? I'd worry that a new fruit, while not making you immediately sick, might cause problems later on, from mutagenic compounds, allergic reactions, or from interactions with drugs. For instance, I know that there are many local berries(manzanita or hollywood berries) that are fine in limited amounts, but eating too many will exceed your body's ability to clear cyanide. Was there ever a fruit you ran across that was delicious, yet toxic? The first exotic fruit I ever tasted was a cherimoya from a farmer's market in central California. It absolutely blew my mind. Where would you rate cherimoyas in the pantheon of fruit? Its not up to me to open up fruits to large audiences, i just want to find plant and eat them. It also depends on how one defines toxic. Cherimoya isnt butits seeds can be -- same with any of the annona fruits. I love cherimoya but like rollina even more. In Socal, I would contact the local CRFG -- calif. rare fruit growers and see what your neighbors have success with. Talk to the nurserys down there too. try the crfg.org website first.
Have you ever been to Peru? If so do you like the fruit there? The luccame is wonderful. Lucmo is an amazing fruit, I've never been to Peru but do have lucmo trees. Most of the ice cream in the UK is sweetened with lucmo powder instead of white refined sugar-k.
Which fruit is the hardest to catch? Meaning are some more stealthy than others, while others are faster than some? That dang kiwi on fruit ninja!
If you can choose a few of your favorite fruits to be as available as Apples and Bananas in markets, what would they be? Jackfruit, jaboticaba, abiurana & abiu-- would love to be able to get them anyplace -- durian too for that matter -k.
Have you caught a Tropius yet? I've heard they're rare and pretty powerful. Yeah -- gotta collect them all !! (_)k.
What would you consider the most unique citrus type of fruit you have found? Fingerlimes from down under -- only i had them in calif. from JJ's Lone Daughter's farm at Hollywood farmers market. like citrus caviar. also had some great tangelo and pummelo and other japanese citrus -k.
I once ate a fruit in central Nepal that gave the sensation of one's mouth becoming bone dry upon ingestion. It tasted somewhat bitter. I don't remember what it looked like. Have you ever encountered anything like that, if so what is it? No idea what that might be. Never had it in northern India. but Dr Parmer from fruitpedia,.com might know.
Have you tried the Australian Quandongs? I remember eating them with my grandparents when I was young but haven't tried one since. Do you specifically look for farmed fruit or do you search for bush fruit too? Have only had them once a few years ago when i chef brought them here-- same for wattle seed. I do have a number of bushtucker plants like midgen berry, davidsonia plum and the finger limes. I have a book with another 50 "down under" fruits I want to find one of these daze! k.
What fruit that you've hunted is most likely to become a starburst flavor soon? I wish jackfruit -- thats where juicyfruit gum got its flavor!
Do you only hunt organic fruit? Describe your experience eating the best fruit you've encountered. What creative ways can people incorporate more fruit into their diets? COuld spend 3 days talking about this one! in terms of organics, is all fruit in the wild organic -- I would hope so but there is no way to tell fro sure. I much prefer it and remember, im collecting specimens to grow in hawaii which will be organic - at least at my place. -- Some fruit is very sour and can be juiced and used instead of vinegar. Fruit can be incorporated with nut cheeses -- being vegan and celiac I've had to find all sorts of things i could eat. fruit & veggie lasagna , pizza-- stir fried loquat & water chestnuts== lots of recipes to play with-k
Do you artificially select the fruit so the next generation will be bigger? Or do you let it continue to grow as if it were wild? Edit: downvoted for a question?? If you only graft or clone trees then you never get any genetic diversity. If you only plant seeds then everything is different. Over the years people planted seeds from the largest fruits and then as time went by learned how to propagate those selected trees. Its not much different now than 500 years ago. People want larger fruit to eat but lie in another thread above. the larger the strawberry, the less taste it seems to have. Maybe someone will find a way around that. The approach to each fruit is different
Hello Kevin!!! What is your favorite food? Juwari soba and tsukemono (pickles) from Japan-ken.
When I was in the Peace Corps in southern Honduras, I got to try a lot of fruits I'd never even heard of before and many of which were absolutely delicious. My #1 favorite were these things, known locally as "mamey". I only knew of a few trees in my area and they were not sold commercially. Do you know where they are native to originally? Are they sold commercially anywhere? Mamey sapote is common in florida and you can usually order some from robert is here farm stand in homestead fla. or from the rare fruit groups in fla. makes the best shakes ever!
Have you ever accidentally made eye contact with another man while eating a banana? I leave that up to my wife.
Can you give some of your favorite documentaries? Like a top 5-10 maybe? And what about non-documentary films? Too many! Check out Lonely Boy (free on National Film Board of Canada site), Little Dieter Needs to Fly by Herzog, Big River Man by John Marangouin, Garlic is as Good as Two Mothers by Les Blank, Naked Island by Kaneto Shindō (not really a doc but kind of is a doc). There's also the epic docs by Wang Bing. Fiction films is like eating fruit. There's a flavour of the month for me. Right now I'm re-digging the French New Wave films. Anything by Truffaut like Shoot the Piano Player and the 400 Blows. Films by Eric Rohmer. Check out Chinese films by Jia Zhang Ke, Hou-Hsiao Hsien, and Edward Yang. Uncle Boonmee by Apitchapong. The list goes on!
Any advice on tracking down organic soursop in the US? I'm a produce buyer from a health food store and I've had tons of requests for it, but I can't find it anywhere! Also, I am getting started in the world of commercial greenhouse hydroponics and I am planning on specializing on unique food among other things. Where is a good place to start hunting down viable seeds of rare varieties? Too bad we cant send it from here -- lots in hawaii but its illegal to ship it outside of the state. You have to try growers in florida and san diego. lots of seed places like fruitlovers.com and some in puerto rice -- good luck.
When you do eventually find that rare fruit within your grasp, how do you treat it? Is it like taking care of the baby, white, albino tiger cub before plucking that fruit and packing it away for all eternity? Usually we just eat and keep the seeds and map the tree for future use if we want to graft from it. sometimes ill prune off some dead wood or make it look better.
What is the main purpose of your venture? Do the fruits of your labor include any monetary benefits? How long has it taken you to see your film come to fruition? This film has been 3 years in the making! Hope you get to check it out! -Y.
How did you get involved in something like that? Kind evolution-- came to Hawaii and saw all this stuff going to waste. went to some parties and were given things to try I have had heard of before and I got hooked on it. k.
Are you annoyed by the word "Organic"? The way its been bastardized -- yes -- when i see boxes in the store with off color runny ink stamped USDA Organic -- thats like an oxymoron`
Why are Loquat's so hard to find? i used to eat them as a kid in LA (we had a tree) but moved to the north west and no one has heard of them. I know what you mean. I had never heard of them until about 35 years ago walking down the street in tokyo when my partner there reached up into a tree and handed me one. in japan you can get them everyplace and they are expensive becasue of the quality -- $50 for 12 fruit and worth every penny of that. No one took the time to develop a commercial market for them but it could happen given time $ and energy.
Here is a link the fruit so others can see it Link to en.wikipedia.org. Check on hawaii fruit net in the publications section and follow it to the 12 trees project --
Hey Ken, the documentary looks great. I love berries, are there any odd or interesting berries you can reccomend that are not mainstream? Glad you like the movie. -- depends on how one defines berry. there must be 100 types of rubus or raspberries that taste different. Ohelo berry is the only one native to hawaii. poha berry which is more like a tomatillo. midgen berry from the outback.
Have you been to The Garden of Forgotten Fruit in Pennabilli, Emiglia-Romagna, Italy? If so, what did you think of it? No but next time Im there to see ISabella from the movie, i plan to go-- we did find a lot of unusual figs in the Parma botanical Garden and at a friends farm there.
Silly question, but I mean it in earnest. With eating these strange fruits in foreign lands, how many times have you pooped yourself? Seems like a real concern. Never had a problem -- I can say in india though that you want to take your TP with you since they dont use it. Because I have celiac disease if i get contaminated with gluten then I can use what your handle name is!
Have you tried any jambul fruit? What are your thoughts on this fruit? I have a mature tree that bears this fruit in my backyard in calif. Jambubl or jambu or jamon are called different things in different locations so im not sure which your talking about but ive had them all. Usually in calif and india jambul is Syzgium cumini often called duhat in other places. its an aquired taste but I like it alot and have a lot of trees from Indian varieties which are larger fruit and really tasty with less astringency.k.
Do you ever travel to a new country and just think "Damn, I'm really sick of eating so much fruit?" Not yet -- i do crave carbs and eat too much rice, quinoa though.
How do you combat things like the citrus disease that's been affecting Florida oranges? We have the vector but not the disease (HLB-Citrus greening) in Hawaii. Its very scary right now especially since the government really doesn't care about it-- There are many studies that say the disease can be carried in the seeds and even with all my permits to move plant material around the world, i cant bring seeds back from Florida to Hawaii -- YET, they can send 14 million pounds of tangerines here from Fla. with seeds. Guess Im not paying off the right people!-k.
Are you the Ken in "Ken's Red Kiwi"? I've been wanting to try it out badly after seeing it in an online store, but ran across this AMA. It sounds possible, so I figured I'd ask. If so, could you tell me about that discovery? Nope not me -- have not had one to try yet either. I named a few avocados after friends but nothing for me yet ..
How are exotic varieties of mango and other fruit developed? The varieties just happened naturally over time -- they were seedlings that people decided were worth perpetuating so then they were grafted or cloned in other ways -- but 99% started from seeds --the others may have been intentionally bred like what burbank did to get santa rosa plum.
I didn't see this answered yet - what's your favorite fruit, period? Like, if you could only have one more fruit, and it has to be one you've already tried, what would you pick? Its impossible and being gemini i can at least have 2 fruit favorites and being year of the dragon 2 more so -- jaboticaba, jackfruit, abiurana rollina -- for the tropics -- temperate zones - figs, grapes, pomegranates. for up north, peaches, pears and berries--
Also on the flip side, are there any fruits out there you haven't found yet but are excited to try? I plan to look for more types of artocarpus (jackfruit family) and garcinia (mangosteen family) in INdia next year.
Have you ever come across any fruit that was dangerous, or for that matter, how do you know if what you come across is edible? Lots of study and lots of reference books -- especially for the area in which your going -- I'll research in a variety of languages too.k
Does the old axiom "the darker the berry, the sweeter the juice" hold true? In many cases like surinam cherry,, yes its true, it can also depedn on how berry is defined.-- but darker usually means its more ripe and on the tree/bush longer meaning more sugar has developed.-k.
Thank you, they sell them in NYC but I can't get my head around figuring out how to find the good ones. So far the magic is lost on me. Also, have you been to Ono Farms in Kipahulu on Maui? Yes to Ono, Chuck the owner is a very old friend and on my board of the state fruit growers group.
Hey Ken, I work in Thailand right now and wanted to ask you what is the best tasting fruit I can find in the streets of Bangkok? I like langsat or duku there as well as durian of course. There are other types in the small markets in bangkok like rambai and rambutan relatives that are great too. Now is durian time though so you should be able to get really good ones, especially in Chang mai.
Do you know what this fruit is? Here is a pic of the inside - it's basically like a fig. Found in the jungles of Northern Thailand, outside Chiang Mai. Dont know it but your right that it has to be some type of ficus. looks pretty good too. if you search edible ficus you might be able to find it. are there pictures of hte leaves and trunk too?
Have you tried bael fruit from India? I know it's not uncommon or anything but do you know what fruit is similar to it in taste and texture? And if it's available anywhere in the US? Love bael and had it many times in india but the onbe in floridas miami fruit and spice park is the best.
Why haven't you found a strawberry the size of my head? It seems we could have world peace if people had head sized strawberries. Most men will tell you size isn't everything (_)
I guess. But still, I'd appreciate a head sized strawberry. Anyway, in your adventures... what is the closest you've come to death or serious peril? The larger the strawberry seems to get, the less flavor it seems to have -- You should seek out and try these tiny things in japan that really are amazing. I've never had such an intense flavor in a strawberry. They put the flavor of US production to shame. == Never really had problems although in Thailand once I was walking around in some jungle and saw signs to please be aware of the tigers.. k.
Have you found anything more disgusting (either smell or taste) than the durian? Durian never bothered me although I can see how some are -- try ripe noni fruit for a truly bad time!
Have you ever had a feijoa? If so, can you please try to describe the flavour. I've moved to the UK and miss them so much, and battle trying to describe them. Often called the pineapple guava, its kind of like a crunchy pineapple with a guava cinnamon taste-- when soft its way different to me and more like guava with a little citrus taste.
I was just in Maui and all the fruit was pretty expensive, even at the farmer's markets. It seems like they would have a ton of Mango and Pineapple for cheap, so why is it still expensive there compared to California? Its off season for mango and pine apple -- if you came in june and july its usually a little cheaper. STILL, the ones in calif or shipped in from Mexico and elsewhere where the cost of production is next to nothing. To farm in hawaii costs more than 10 times more than anyplace else. it costs me $2 to grow a lb of lychee but you can buy it from thailand for 50¢ -- until the boats and planes stop -- we have to support and do more to protect local ag.
When i travel i always like pocketing seeds but i know you can get a hefty fine. Have you ever had trouble traveling with seeds? do you declare them at airports? I have permits from the USDA and it is fairly simple to get and no or very little cost. Just have to find where on the USDA APHIS website. There are some things that cannot come in like citrus, coconut and banana but others are ok with the permits.
Have you tried pitanga and butiá? If jabuticaba is one of your favorites, these should be on your list. Grow a lot of them, especially pitanga -- we call surinam cherry. The univ. has a variety trial now for black varieties. butiá is more rare here but some of the plams are around.
Just had dried pitanga rolled up into candy yesterday-- chefs really love this here.
Green with envy... had butiá my entire childhood, but now living thousands of miles away... never get to have it. We had a pitanga tree in our backyard. Not sure where you are but ive seen pitanga growing in Calif in temperate areas and also insidein pots where you could get some fruit-k.
Colorado. But will keep one eye next time I am in Ca. Or Hawaii. By the way... anything you recommend in France? Would love to get back to France for grapes which im just getting into since I want to get some growing in the tropics. figs too and small plums -- really a lot to re-discover there.
In Colorado you would have to grow pitanga in a pot inside the house.
How many durian fruits do you eat a week? As many as possible!- Last year it was a good year so I had 12 in one week. During the filming of the movie we had a durian tail gate party on the back of my truck at the airport.
Do you know Butiá? It's my favorite fruit, I live in Brazil, Rio Grande do Sul. I think it's a little obscure fruit, but is crazy delicious. Very nice palm fruit -- we dont have so many in hawaii though.
With a name and profession like that, what's your best pickup line? Well in the 60s I was free love but now that I'm 60 I have to charge for it!!
I used to be a produce buyer for an ethnic supermarket and by far my favorite fruit was rambutan. Have you tried it? How feasible would it be to cultivate it where I live (mid-Atlantic United States). I used to slip some in my pocket during workbecause they sold for a whopping $25/lb. I know they grow in southeastern Asia, but are there other places they grow? We have a large thriving rambutan industry in Hawaii-- pretty common here retailing for around $6 a lb -- we usually sell it for 25¢ a fruit at farmers markets. it is very tropical so you woul dhave to move here and by a farm. they even have trouble in florida with it.k.
Hello Ken, what sort of kit do you carry, I assume you camp out in some places? Hammock or Tent? Any particular knife you carry? Not really, usually staying in friends houses or others I meet, especially in india where the people are really wonderful and always invite you over. I do take malaria pills and pruning shears and a few fruit knives and swiss and leatherman.
How exactly did you start this career? A specific degree field, or springboard job? Or just wild entrepreneurial spirit? A little of all i guess - it just sort of evolved. I wanted to see small farmers to be able to be sustainable and this is a tool for achieving that goal in Hawaii and a few other places.
In India, they eat a fruit they call chicoo - sort of like a cross between an apple and a kiwi - do you know what that is and if it is available anywhere else? Chico and chiku is common -- its from central america originally. we call them brown sugar chico in hawaii -- it where the first chewing gum came from.
What is the most delicious sour fruit? I like bilimbi.
Have you tried waterberries, and if so, were? If I wanted to track down a Mountain Fly Honeysuckle (Lonicera villosa), how would I go about doing that? Dont really know them as i specialize in tropical fruit although it might be known by another name. Often the same fruit can have a dozen different names in different locations. The Lonicera villosa is native to MAine I think so I would start with the university extension office there. They should be able to tell you how to get one. Been 40 years since I was there!
Ever heard of Abiu? it's native here in Brazil, and extremely sweet. My favourite. Link to en.wikipedia.org. I have many abiu trees -- they are great Link to www.ctahr.hawaii.edu is my paper on it for univ. of hawaii.
Have you had a Puero Rican Quenepa before? One of those and some Malta Goya would be fantastic right now. Link to en.wikipedia.org. Wish we had more Quenepa -- spanish lime - in HAwaii. I dont have one but frankies nursery in honolulu does so i get them from him.
Have you tried lucuma from Peru? Yeas i have some lucma trees -- very good to work with. i dry it and use it to sweeten some things too.
Whats the weirdest fruit youve tasted/smelled/experienced? (my money is on the durian) Durian ranks up there but marang fruit or pedalai would too. marang is Artocarpus oderatisimuss.
Would you ever do a extreme episode and try gympie-gympie? Nope - read too many horror stories about this to want to deal with it -- never saw one either.
What fruit surprised you the most? Did anything look absolutely inedible, have a horrible smell or anything else, but still taste good? Guess I"m jaded at this point-- some things smell better than others -- some smell great but have little or no taste like thimble berries. somethings look really wierd but taste great like rollinia.
What is the worst fruit (in your opinion) you have eaten? Never liked governors plum although friends tell me I just haven't had a good one yet.
Are you a durian fan or not? And have you tried durian ice cream? Love it -- make durian ice cream, cake and other stuff when we have enough fresh ones although usually i just eat fresh ones or chips and paste when not in season.
Have you gone to the Tropical Fruit World in Australia? Link to www.visitgoldcoast.com We meant to go when we were there but we never got a chance. Supposedly they have over 500 types of fruit? One of these days -- need to get knees replaced first, there are a number of great fruit parks around the world in Japan, Guam etc. Built one here once too.
Hey have you ever tried momon chino from costa rica? And if so how can I get some in nevada? Thats rambutan -- some specialty stores get it from mexico or even from hawaii. irradiation facility in hilo should be able to tell you how to order it.
