Re: Monstera fruits - when ripe?

We have lots on Monstera climbing the trees and they fruit heavily every year. We never get the fruit. The vines are 20-25ft up the tree trunks and the fruit is usually up high. The fruit that is easier to reach almost always gets eaten by the wildlife; rats,squirrels,possums,racoons,birds, etc. Something is pollinating it, too, as viable seed is being produced. We have been finding more stray seedlings come up in the past few years.
