Looking for Garcinia speeds within the US

Anyone selling/trading any Garcinia seeds here in the United States?
The hardest plants to grow are often those most worth growing.

Best chances for seeds specifically on the U.S. at this time of year will be slim. Best chances are with Flying Fox Fruits and Fruit Lovers. If you must buy something now, your best chance is to get a seedling. Most Garcinias grown in the U.S are available summer and fall. If you want seeds you'll likely have to wait til Spring/summer/fall.

Not in the USA but I noticed some Rheedia edulis ( they may be Garcinias now ...) ripening now . The Mexican Garcinia will be available in April - May . Maybe also G. brasiliensis very soon , have to check them ...

Sounds good cause then I can buy the abiu. I meant the US thing for cheap postage but your postage is very reasonable. Keep me updated. Are Rheedia edulis and Garcinia intermedia different?

Update:
Also looking for some other seeds particularly those of dwarf or precocious fruit trees.

Trying again for the third year to get Mexican Garcinia seeds this season. I'd take some of the brasiliensis as well. Send me a message and if I can pay paypal. Thanks Ed in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
