I can offer 40 fruits for $35 shipped from Florida to the US address via Priority mail (1-3 days). I have plenty of flacourtia indica fruits.

Not very nice to intrude in someone else sales topic to advertise one own.

Its a shoot! It may be okay if you leave it that way, but I would gently remove it and replant it face up.

Very awesome! I just recently found what I think is a mountain yam. I will post some pictures once it grows a little more.
Thanks, I reoriented all the one that sprouted.

What's a mountain yam? scientific name?

Hi,

I will have some Kepel young plants for trade this summer. I assume I will have germinated seeds also for trade.


An example (from last years fruits):








New fruits:





Hi, will you have germinated seeds or fruit this year?

4
Is this bump a shoot or a root? I put it downside but I'm worried it could be a shoot.


5
My african bulbifera arrived in super healthy condition. Buy with confidence from Stephen.


6
I believe they need light to germinate.
Direct sun or just lots of indirect light?
After they germinate they can stay in the sun or they will sun burn(I doubt,but you never know)?

Consider that this is 1 month old. The bag was around 20cm(because it was folded). It has already reached the bottom.


This is 2 months old. And they are growing slower because they are in the same pot(I don't advice it, I had run out of coconut coir that time)!
I stacked another full polybag below, so it's around 45 cm tall here.


You should repot them, but It would be easier to restart. Once they stop growing, they never fully recover. Will be slow forever.
That is true for most tropicals which have long tap root.
Do not put them in direct sunlight the first year, they sun burn very easily.

Regarding the leaves, mine did that too. The first leaves are papery and very delicate. They probably need more humidity to stay healthy too.
Once they switch to the normal leaves these are much easier to keep nice.

Post some picture. I have found jackfruit very easy to grow.
It's very important to have two things:
1-Very tall pot, they grow the taproot very quickly and if they cannot go further they get stunted.
Ideally 25cm at least from day 0.
2-Very light soil. Since I switched to coco coir and perlite for all my tropical I never had any issue.
Use like 40% perlite and 60% coco coir, without compacting it, you will see the roots grow at incredible speed and fill the bag in 6-8 months.
If you want to go extreme use even taller pots. I use poly bag for this reason, I stack them when the roots have reached the bottom.
Mine were 4 feets tall in few months.

So, did anybody ever got it to flower?
It is unclear if you need two plants for fruits, but seem nobody has even ever saw the flowers.

Hi Raul, always forgot to ask, do you eat the skin too?
The skin has any flavor?
There are no more seeds I bought 800 of them and they are gone, next year they will be more if my inlaws help,
CHRIS- Skin is imperceptible, no flavor, very thin to notice, yes don't need to peel...

Good to know, I hate peeling fruits. Eat almost everything with the skin if edible.
My seeds have just arrived Italy, let's hope they pass the customs or I'll have to wait next year!

My white pomelo is a small plant but already with a fruit...  ;D







Damn, mine is a bush 1m tall and it still hasn't flowered....

There is Canna Edulis which has similar growth as Banana and you east the corm cooked as a potato replacement.
Most of the solanum(same genus as tomato) plants fit your criteria and the are some that produce sweet fruits like tamarillo for example.

Here's a photo of my Nangka Mini Jackfruit tree that I planted  in 09/15 from seeds
purchased from Maryoto. It stands 5 1/2' tall and if memory serves me, Maryoto said
it takes about 4-5 years to fruit.




I just found the original topic and it was reported to fruit at 1.5-2 years, yours is almost 3 years old.
Do you think it's just the climate or it's a regular dwarf jackfruit, not precocious?

15
Hi Maryoto,
Will you have Nangka mini and Kepel seeds back in stock?

16
I have only two plants. I'll keep one and the second is immediately sold. Luis was very fast :-).
I had the seeds from Nelesedulis from Brazil, germination was about three months, but 100%. You can try it with him.

Problem is shipping from Brazil is crazy expensive and to make it worth it I would have to order lots of seeds, sort of short on cash lol :D

Updates, all discounted and 4 new species at the top.

Hi Ondrej, I am interested in Spondias Dulcis, but why it is unavailable if you just put it online?
Sorry i already buy it...  8)
Damn faster than light!

Micro propagation. Very easy to do at home.

Very easy? Please explain. I always thought you needed a sterile room and some fancy equipment.

20
Hi Maryoto can i have a few seeds? Thank's! ;D

Hi Luis, how do the Kepel grow in Portugal? Are they sensitive to cold?

21
These seeds are hard as a rock , did anybody ever tried to crack them ( hammer needed ) to let water in and speed up germination ?

I did crack some of mine, didn't notice any difference in germination time and growth.
They are easily damaged when cracking, luckily it happened only on the edges.

The last surviving Pentaphylla yam (and seemingly accurate in its ID) has died. As the tuber was rotting away before the vine died, I don't expect it to resprout. I could order more from eBay, but I get the feeling they're all in a precarious sprouted state, so I will wait for next year, in the hopes of getting them earlier, prior to sprouting. I'll be trying the same vendor again, as they packaged it properly.


Where did you take yours? Mine from Ebay user goodmice also arrived rotten and the shipment was delivered in around 2 weeks, so not much.
