Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: My greenhouse website
« on: July 22, 2017, 08:19:13 PM »
I sent you a PM, but for others who are interested, their email is foresthousecam@gmail.com.
Wirsiy is generally the person who works with the invoicing, collecting, etc.  Another email for him is wirsiyef@yahoo.com.

I have heard both good and bad about these folks and their business, but really, they are doing the absolute best that they possibly can, given the circumstances of slow mail, weird government problems, bad/intermittent internet connections, and trying to harvest, correctly identify, clean, store and ship the seeds of wild jungle trees. I know from experience how difficult it can be to correctly identify a plant that is known only by local names.

My hat is off to them.  They are trying to make a difference by providing local people a way to support themselves in a sustainable way that does not harm the environment.  I am all for anything that stops palm oil plantations!

Ok, I am off my soap box now...

Excellent thanks Carolyn!
I haven't got your PM but contact email of Wirsiy is good enough.

From my experience, identifying a plant/fruit is a problem. Doing that with slow/interrupted internet and all other country-wide issues sounds like escaping no-exit matrices to me. Huge respect to them!

I think one of good ways to support them is to purchase their seeds. They were once widely known when their startup was announced. Hope they will always be able to continue their business and their rare tree/fruit species can be saved before being wiped out for oil palm plantations.

They are having internet issues down there right now.  Plus, I think he is not near a computer most of the time. I do get emails from Wirsiy fairly frequently, and got seeds not too long ago.

Great to hear that they are still around. May I send you a PM for asking how to contact and purchase seeds from Wirsiy?

Thanks Daintree!

The site is great! The plants look very healthy.

Besides, "Forest House Cameroon" (Isolona) is mentioned in "The Seed Hunting Project!" page. I've rarely heard from them for many months in this forum.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: New member again

Hello fellow tropical fruit enthusiasts, my name is Allan and I live in San Diego, California.
To make a long story short, I was already a member of this forum about a year ago for several months, but was unable to login. I had forgotten my password and when I tried to retrieve it - there was nothing sent to my e-mail. After several tries, I've decided that it would be easier to start over (with a new username), so here I am. I've always enjoyed reading all the posts in this forum and learned so much from all the experienced members. I'm a fairly new gardener; about 3 years growing tropical plants. I'm just glad to be back in this forum!

Lots of members never return to forum.
I had been anonymous for a while and recently registered. Welcome back!

Have you receive our PMs?

I'd like to purchase some seeds. Your paypal acc and shipping fee will be useful.

Please check your forum account inbox. If nothing's there, I'll PM again.

I've looked into this, and it looks like GoDaddy is blocking outbound email (by blocking outbound network traffic destined for common SMTP ports). When I called GoDaddy support to get it fixed, the support rep with whom I spoke claimed that they were not blocking outgoing mail. But based on my testing via SSH, the rep is either lying or just plain dumb -- the outbound traffic is obviously being blocked.

I need to call GoDaddy support again and try to get a better support rep. I'll see if I can do that tomorrow. Stay tuned...

Telephone Reps are highly variable and thanks for trying to get this corrected....  If I don't log on for a few days I still want to know via email if I have gotten PMs. So I can log on and reply in a timely manner.

This is needed/important for selling/buying/urgent stuff, especially for members that are usually in their gardens/farms.

Has anyone heard anything back from them yet ?

Not yet for me. Hope they will get back soon.

13
Did you make sure it didn't end up in your junk email folder?

Sure no. Inbox/Spam/Junk folder, none of them contained any of forum emails.

Me too, recently registered and never received an email notification. The welcoming new forum member email wasn't sent too.

Admin please fix!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: where to plant ackee?

Yes the seeds are poisonous. Especially dangerous is accidentally swallowing immature and not fully developed seeds. Yes the pink membrane should also be removed. Only the yellow aril (pulp surrounding seed) is edible. It can be eaten raw or cooked. But fruit must pop open on the the tree by itself before it can be eaten. It is light that deactivates the toxins, not cooking.

Great info! I'm planting some Ackee. Knowing this will help avoid #$@%$ stuff.

About to purchase some Cupuaçu seeds from guidelazeri. Hope warming days will arrive soon so guidelazeri can start preparing the seeds.

Patience finally pays off. One of two flowerring trees set about 30 fruits.



How do you tell when they are ripe?


Looks beautiful! Congrats!
