Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Re: Seeds shipped into US

It's hit or miss.

Hi, I got these plants from Misiones this week. The seller said that cabeludinha is m. glazioviana, from seeds from Brazil, and that the fruits has a lot of pulp and very sweet... it sounds good, what do you think, do they look like m. glomerata or m. glazioviana?

And this achachairu or pacurí: she said the fruits are orange (not yellow as another native species) and very sweet too, would it be garcinia humilis like she believe?

The achachairu in your photo is identical to my garcinia humilis (which is young and hasn't fruited yet).

Has anyone seen this site ?

they say they ship to the USA.
i am sending them an email to get pricing.
it may be cheaper to get a group order going ?
i really want 1 or 2 (they have different varieties)
"black-peak" looks interesting...

Please keep us posted when they reply.

unless its very expensive i will probably order.

At first sign of give when squeezed firmly with tip of thumb. Might take a little trial and error.


How do you tell when it's time to pick? Is there any blush showing and is the fruit hard or have a little
give to it when squeezed?

Thank you!

Don't pan a mango until you've had it over multiple seasons and at varying stages of ripeness. It took me about 3 years before I finally figured out MC's sweet spot. Now, it's one of my favorites.

The trick with many of the SE asian mangoes is to eat them a little green, where the flavor profile is a complex mix of sweet and tart. Eat them fully ripe, and the experience can be disappointing for the typical North American palate.

Along with NDM, Maha Chanok is one of the most over rated mangoes IMHO.  Maybe if you like "one note" asian mangoes you might like it.  But both myself & friends didn't give it a good score for flavor in a mango tasting & comparison session.  A lot of people seem to think it's great tho.  If only they tasted as good as they look.

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.

Thanks Mike T for the seeds!  This is the first year its fruiting and its yellow and black.

How old is your Grumichama?

Thanks; however, rules state that prices must be posted on the forum.

What are your prices?

Please see PM.

I have made multiple purchases from Maryoto over the years and he has always delivered
quality products and services have been exemplary. I could care less what country is listed
in his avatar.

To be honest the fee is pretty minimal.  It's a few percent and then you can print shipping labels at a discount when doing regular "goods and services" transactions.  Seems like not a big problem.  PayPal provides a good service.
Nope. Just used bank account and they still charged me $4.99

+1 for the black Madeira. I'm also growing Panache but too young to report
on taste.

Thank you!

My small  Xie Shan is blooming like crazy after being planted in the ground this Spring.
Since it is small (about 40" tall), should I pull the blooms off?
