    I absolutely hate soursop and agree that it is obscene looking. I must try my tortoises with it next time someone brings some for us.
    They love papaya (what we call pawpaw) and it grows in our garden, likewise raspberries, banana and guava.

    We had a star fruit tree before I moved house and got my redfoots. But my iguanas simply loved the starfruit and the leaves of the tree.

    I don't have access to free star fruit. But it's cheap.

    Love this thread !
    My little rf torts are jumping around impatiently, all those are either dead cheap at the fresh market or simply up for grab on my weekend strolls :)

    Are the Chinese Wampi (or Wampee) ok ? The Latin name is Clausena Lansium, or is that Swahili ? I suck at both.
    They look like that :

    The forests and fields around my house are packed with them !

    Yummy !!!

    Selfish-Me : keep a bunch of those for your torts, and make jams for yourself. Please someone tell me rf torts don't eat jam...
    My wife has become extremely protective of the mangoes and papayas I bring home. "Stay away, those are for Dumb & Dumber, you can have a glass of tap water instead..." she says, tcheee...
