Preferably able to obtain a phytosanitary certificate from their local plant quarantine or agriculture office. I'd rather deal with Indian sellers for this one versus Thai sellers - no offence meant just need the authentic seeds. EU studies show it's good for epilepsy and other seizure / involuntary spasms (lewey bodies dementia  , Parkinson's etc) not as medicine itself but as a complementary supplement, pref taken as tea so will be needing to plant some.


PM please, thank you!

Tradewindsfruit.com has them. Germinate them in the light on top of the moist soil after soaking for an hour. Mine have so many berries and i have too many plants now actually. There is a high invasive potential in my area for them I think.
