  • My favorite source for seeds is Fruit Lovers ([url]http://www.fruitlovers.com/seedlistUSA.html[/url]).
  • Trade Winds Fruit ([url]http://www.tradewindsfruit.com/[/url]) is another source that I've bought from a few times. Not always the freshest seeds.
  • Govardhan Gardens ([url]http://organicfarm.net/seeds.htm[/url]) often has a very wide selection of seeds
  • Montoso Gardens ([url]http://www.montosogardens.com/tropical_fruit_seeds.htm[/url])

Thanks Murahilin for the recommendation. I hope to live up to that. BTW, i hope to be posting some notices on this board, with your permission, for newly acquired seeds not yet on my website. That way members interested could get first dibs on really rare seeds.

I have bought a few times from them. 0% success with recalcitrant and other tropical fruit seeds. Only eucapytus and acacias germinated well. Consider that first the seeds are collected far away, then send to Germany, then stored, and later they arrive at the customer. I guess, in a best case scenario those seeds take at least 4 weeks from collecting until they arrive the customer.

I have ordered from them before.  seems there is less risk of confiscation when seeds are in a factory sealed envelope ( Burpee style etc. ) unlike when I order from an Ebay seller, which I have had mixed results, sellers will often re-send them if they get confiscated though, and I usually get them eventually.

But like others have said, regarding the time sensitive ones, sometimes I just do not get any germination at all. 

I wonder if the mail irradiates packages, or uses a strong xray or something that can kill seeds? could be because of the cold also as others have mentioned.

Some species are just hard to germinate; but how have the recalcitrant seeds been packed when you got them?

Before I was able to find live Mangosteen locally i purchased seeds on 3 different occasions from 3 different Asian sources. these seeds were all well packed, they arrived in moist peat, in zip locked bags and taped. non arrived crushed, some even sprouted on route, but not one grew. In this case I suspect it was the delay, the fastest order took around 18 days. since mangosteen can lose 75% of its viability in just 1 week, its no surprise.  in contrast, the Garcinia aristata seeds I bought from a US source, gave me like 100% germination.

Are there many mangosteen trees that are producing in DR? Has your trees begun fruiting yet?

Post by: Mike T on August 10, 2012, 07:39:45 PM
The biggest seeds in the smallest leafed mangosteen strains kept moist in sealed bags will last pretty well.This is hard to control if you're ordering seeds (nucellic inclusions).

First I have to mention that the mail in Mexico is not the greatest and is getting worse by the day , before I used to get seeds from all over the world in less than a month . Now only registered mail arrives , I guess the rest gets stolen ....   

For me # 1 is Fruitlovers # 2 would be Sadhu and Sherry in PR  and Helton in Brazil  , he's the sweetest guy and will bend over backwards to keep you happy , I met him in person .
Kinda pissed of with Montoso garden ( not with Bryan ) who made me wait 4 years to find out the yellow grumichama I asked for were actually black...
Jim in Equador has nice stuff but poor quality ( several arrived with worms )

This is just my experience with commercial seed sellers and I want to take advantage of this message to thank all the rare fruit collectors world wide I swapped seeds with.

There are fruiting mangosteen here now, I have not seen them personally, but the seedlings I have are from these fruiting trees. there are only a few scattered around in private collections and in research centers. a person I know that is a Biologist in the country was able to get his mangosteen to fruit in just 5 years, using organic bio stimulants.   my plants are still too small, about 2-3 years old with no branching yet.

I never use regular postal service in the DR, I would probably not get one item.

I use a mailing service called "Business Mail"   http://www.bmcargo.com/ (http://www.bmcargo.com/)   Envelopes and letters are dirt cheap to mail in, and anything under 200 dollars pays no import tax.   a letter may only cost me 0.60 cents dollars, to bring over. and even more important I have a US mailing address, and someone is there to receive packages.

But they will ship containers full also.

In Mexico there must be a similar type service available.  everything from seeds, magazine subscriptions, parts, clothes etc. heck they even have a PC where you can order something on Ebay and pay them in pesos , and they pay Ebay. for those people that don't have a PC or Bank account in dollars.

Coincidentally there is a great supplier of these biostimulants in Mexico,

http://www.agroquimicos-organicosplm.com/bioestimulante-33-2#inicio  (http://www.agroquimicos-organicosplm.com/bioestimulante-33-2#inicio)

I have not found similar products in the States yet, closest thing is what you see in Hydroponic shops.  anyway that is for another thread hehe :)

To get your mangosteen seedling fruiting/flowering prior to celebrating its 5th anniversary of being planted out, it doesn't always take special treatment.Mine fruited at 7ft and at almost 5 years in the ground,being 1 foot when planted. It didn't get special  treatment like dry season watering and regular fertilzer until after it first fruited.Likewise a grafted durian fruited within 5 years before weather took it down.I think the prolonged heat and humidity of the local monsoon season may give them a boost.I do however have a mangosteen runt which at 5 years is heavily branched but only 4 feet and nowhere near fruiting.

I really need to get mine in the ground,  they will just not doing too well in containers.   the seedlings I have are over two years old, and they are only a foot high. but they seem to be speeding up now, I read they have a very slow beginning and speed up later.  the biggest tree I have seen here is over 12 years old and has not fruited yet !  but I think this is because its under shade, and is not fertilized or anything.

Mangosteen seeds that are well packed will last several weeks, and start to germinate inside the bag. The fact that the seeds were germinated but did not sprout indicates probably temperature extremes in route that killed them. X-raying of packages doesn't happen, unless the package is suspected of containing a bomb, or such. Most postal processing centers don't even have x-ray machines. The only exception is packages going to Washington D.C. thanks to the nut case that was sending white powder to congressmen.

Officially yes, a phyto is needed for any plant product sent to PR. But in fact you can get away with small packages without it as they will not be opened.

Those photos show immature fruits, just starting to form. The pit is large, almost as large as avocado pit. You won't be able to get them from this company because 1) it says right on their sight they are unavailable and more importantly 2) any Persea species is not allowed into USA from outside the country, and that company is in Belize.

I did meet up with Jim at the conference.  Saw his presentation.  Fascinating stuff.  He has earned his place in the history books.  Anyone that can live a 3hour hike from the closest dirt/mud road has my respect.

He is definitely limiting contact.  Has all the business he needs I guess. 

I am going catch up with you Oscar.  Bring my check book and clean you out.  Ha ha. Lol. 
I just got to get a spare minute away from my wife's goat farm.  Got to get some stuff planted before she takes over the whole 25acres.  Haha. 


We trek over to del's in Hilo enough. Just a matter of setting up a time.

I don't understand why we keep getting postings like this.  This place has been discussed before (in page one of this string) where even customers in Europe got zero germination on tropical fruit seeds.  I got zero as well.  Only order from them if you are buying non-recalcitrant seeds or like to throw money away.  Prices are not so low if the seeds never germinate.

Not sure why the Ecuadorian http://guaycuyacu.net/seed_sell.html (http://guaycuyacu.net/seed_sell.html) has not been stickied?

Then there is the Brazilian vendor http://www.availableseeds.com/ (http://www.availableseeds.com/) based in Sao Paolo.

I've not ordered from either but see no reason not to give either the benefit of the doubt and include them in the sticky.

The guaycuyacu link is Jim West.  He is listed on the first page of this string.  He is a very good source for reasonably priced seeds.  A few years back, he indicated that he was no longer taking new customers but I have heard that he still does sometimes.

availableseeds.com has also been mentioned here before.  I had good luck with most of the seeds I got from him.  However it seems like his prices have climbed up a bit since first being mentioned here.

Has anyone in the US bought seeds from available www.availableseeds.com (http://www.availableseeds.com) in brazil? Where you satisfied and would refer them?
was hipping or customs an issue? I do find their prices are pretty high though.

During the last three years i ordered from the AVAILABLE SEEDS and was very satisfied with the quality of seeds, package and shipment.
Never had problems. They used to send 10-20 seeds, for example, when you buy 5 small size seeds. However, when the seeds are definetely big, they sent the ordered quantity.

Hello,

Where can I find quality seed for pineapple, coconut, mango, avocado, papaya, edible banana and similar tropical fruit which would be shipped to my country?

I've started some kind of tropical plants indoor growing with seeds from the groceries store fruit, but I don't expect much because quality of those seeds is not anything near perfect as far as I am concerned. I am going to install some adjustable RGB LED strips and with the new gear I am thinking new seeds as well. As you can see I live in zone 7 with apples and pears going on here, and in winter (and pretty much spring and autumn) conditions pineapple and such has nothing to do outdoors, that's why I have to go with indoor growing. Along with LED strips I will go with temperature and humidity adjustment stuff. So if I go with quality seed as well it can turn out into something I guess.

I've tried to search on Amazon and E-bay but most of sellers don't ship here and of course I can't be sure if the seed is good or not. I am looking rather for some registered online seed shop which distribute this stuff internationally. Sorry if my English made you any trouble and thanks for your responses.

How's TradeWinds for vegetable seeds? Particularly interested in allium (and related seeds). The seeds I bought over from the Ph don't seem to do well in Oz and vice versa. I've bought plants (sets and mature plants) as well as seeds of ramp, scallions and various wild onions locally and I've found that it doesn't matter where I get my alliums from - they're all very prone to purple blotch? And I'm trying to keep everything organic. Figured it must be something within Oz that's making all the alliums susceptible? Generational degeneration of the local seeds perhaps.


Anyone tried the alliums from TradeWinds in a semi-organic/purely organic planting? How did it go?

To get your mangosteen seedling fruiting/flowering prior to celebrating its 5th anniversary of being planted out, it doesn't always take special treatment.Mine fruited at 7ft and at almost 5 years in the ground,being 1 foot when planted. It didn't get special  treatment like dry season watering and regular fertilzer until after it first fruited.Likewise a grafted durian fruited within 5 years before weather took it down.I think the prolonged heat and humidity of the local monsoon season may give them a boost.I do however have a mangosteen runt which at 5 years is heavily branched but only 4 feet and nowhere near fruiting.

Eri Soto tried to reply but reported this to the moderator instead. Here is the reply:

see my videos on youtube at Pitahayas en Puerto Rico. I have more than 25 varieties.

As far as online large scale seed suppliers go I'm quite fond of Top Tropicals and Tradewinds Fruit when it comes to viable seeds! They have never let me down... though they have relatively high prices. Here is hoping that some of that money is going back to the country of origin! I really like Top Tropicals information too!

These are in my opinion the best of what was listed...in descending order of best upon arrival for FLORIDA!

1) Flying Fox Fruit (Proximity and quality source)

2) Govardhan Gardens (he takes great preparation and care of his seeds before sending)

3) Trade Winds Fruit (VERY rarely have I ever gotten anything from them that was not going to germinate (and when it was the case it was only a few of the seeds in the species ordered)...they also have really good seeds and presumably storage practices!

4) Toptropicals is pretty good and has a good variety. Their website is frustrating, but they have a lot of Ethnobotanical and other useful info!
