Any Gnetum species except for G. gnemon

Please PM, Thank you.

Do you have any Gnetum gnemon you would be willing to part with? I don't have any Gnetum species at present though.

I have Gnetum gnemon, it grows fairly easily from cuttings, PM me if you would like to trade.

Still have plenty of trees available; they are growing vigorously and I'll have to start repotting  soon, so get them while I can offer free shipping.

Cheers,

The marula trees have been claimed. Thank you.

There is an interesting book about Wilson Popenoe published by the National Tropical Botanical Garden. Published in 1991, by Frederic Rosengarten.

5 Marula trees Sclerocarya birrea in 5 gal. pots need to be planted out or repotted. Seed originated from South Africa, the trees are about 5 years old and 4-6 feet tall. They are too large to ship, so pick-up would be preferred (North-Central Florida)

I am willing to entertain all offers; would trade for grafted Atemoyas, cold-hardy grafted avocados, and/or grafted Duncan grapefruit.

Not sure but I have been told by a mutual acquaintance that  he is a mad keen chucte fan.
I would think so given that he wrote his master's thesis on it, and writes articles with titles like:
Persea schiedeana: A High Oil “Cinderella Species” Fruit with Potential for Tropical Agroforestry Systems
 8) 8)

I have a small tree growing here in Florida; seed came from the above author.

18
Really nice looking tree can't wait to hear taste report! Any guess to possible cold hardiness? 8)
Don't know, but would guess it is more cold hardy than avocado since chucte originates in highlands. Look at first posting on this thread, there is a link there. Any info on cold hardiness there?

I have one small Persea schiedeana growing here in North Central Florida, it is under a tall canopy of oak/pine so it has a little protection from frost. The tree did fine with temperatures in the upper 20's, but serious damage occurred  around 25 F and most branches died back. It has since rebounded nicely as the past 2 winters have been fairly mild.

19
Still have a good number of seedlings available!

20
I would still take a seedy Duncan over any other grapefruit, none of the seedless varieties can come close to that flavor.

21
Araucarias can have male and female cones on the same tree, or have only male or female cones.
