Hi Guidelazeri,

Have the cupuacu fruits come from the market, or have you collected them personally from under the tree? What price for whole fruit?

Regards
Dominik

Hi Dominik
I got fruits in a small local market in the city. The fruits were not refrigerated.
Each fruit has around 35 seeds, but an experiment friend told me that to send whole fruit by mail from Brazil is not allowed.
Cheers.

It seems that the challenge is to maintain moisture and prevent fungal attack during transport

Guidelazeri, how do You protect seeds from drying out? Do You send seeds in moss?

Yes, I'm thinking to pack them in a plastic bag with sphagnum moss or moist vermiculite. I am studying and looking for ways to succeed in this operation. I think I need to do some tests before shiping this species seeds to other countries. I was not aware that this species was so challenging.

Thank You for photo. In the case of this type of seed or fruit, it often happens that the material received does not survive transport. On the other hand, if the sent material is lively and properly prepared for shipping and next properly treated by grower - then most often everything is ok. Do you provide a guarantee for the seed shipped? Supposedly: if the seeds are dead when theu come to the recipient then how do you solve the situation?

It is a matter of combining the conditions with each interested buyer. I will make my first shipments soon and the customers themselves will come here to give feedback on the outcome of the process. I prefer to let them report on quality and express their satisfaction. ;)
