I'm curious, don't you want to see them fruit? Are you selling your only ones?

Is it possible to rent a truck, pick them up, and drive through the California border checkpoint? I would take them if I didn't have to have them destroyed before my teary eyes at the checkpoint. Chris

If you're willing to buy these, Adam would be a fool not to do a bunch of hoop jumping to get them to be Cali legal.

I'm curious, don't you want to see them fruit? Are you selling your only ones?

after seeing pics of the tree in the wild, I can tell it will never be happy here on my farm.

Also consider, there are several varieties, some are too acid to eat...I have no idea what variety this is.

You might also need two plants (i heard someone say there can be male and female blooms?  not sure of this though?)

I think these plants really belong in a botanical garden somewhere...they are majestic, and rare, but not something that I can continue to propagate, or sell to the masses of tropical fruit collectors.

OCchris1,
 
I'm sure they don't have nematodes...but not sure if we can get them through to CA...i know they'd be fine for TX though.

Might want to contact Evan Bar at the Naples Botanical Gardens.

Gotta make room for more Plinias!

I'm reducing price to $700 per plant!  Local pick up only! still must buy both!

(no I won't reduce price anymore!  not even $699.99  ;D )  If they don't sell by the end of winter, beginning of spring, I'm gonna have to keep them and find some nice 50 gal root pruner pots!

If you need a foster home for them slightly further south near the slightly warmer coast. I have a couple slots in my orchard available :P  I am sure I can talk my neighbor across the street to drive over to your place to pick them up and him to look at your other trees.

Its a win win, you don't have to hunt large expensive root maker pots and I don't get shot by my wife for spending $1.4k on two trees. :P

(note this was in jest and not to be confused with me actually begging for a tree, not sure how much sarcasm was carried over to someone not thinking the same way I was in text)
