Hi Domnik, taking into account all the info I have are coming from a botanist in Cuba who had the chance to discover, analyse and taste this fruit, the ripen fruit has the same dimensions of a closed fist where the weight is of a medium-small chirimoya.

Giampaolo, can you describe exactly the average dimensions and average weight of the ripe fruit? Regards.

Hi Jako,

this is an amazing specie living in semi-arid or low rain places of Cuba where the sun is quite strong. In Italy I have found out that it grows easily in controlled weather like inside home or greenhouses, the same is for northern Europe. I got also 60% of germination rate which is not bad for an extreme Annona like this one!

Do you know anything about it’s growth habit? I’m interested!

To all rarities collectors:

I have available the last batch of fresh Annona bullata form Cuba. The ripen fruit flavour is good and sweet, different than all others Annonas.

The leaves are aromatic and currently used in Cuba in the same way as Laurus.

Few seeds available. The price is 4 Euro per seed. Minimum order: 6 seeds and shipping costs are for free. PM me for availabilities and orders.


All the best,

Giampaolo


Below are some pics of the specie:

Hi Jakob,

I have both plants for sale. I can sell to you! did you receive my email???

My advice is to get two of Annona dioica for better pollination and one Annona warmingiana.

Just let me know how many plants you want and I'll tell you the total price with tracked postal service included.

All the best,

Giampaolo

I am also looking for these.

Dear Friends,

after two years of great success, I decided to sell again my surplus of rarities to all proud collectors worldwide. But this year, I have something more special for you… for sure, not easy to find!

If you are interested, just drop me a private message with the list of the red codes you find in the upper part of the pics, then I'll book the order and will tell you later also the delivery costs depending on your needs and location. Considering the amount of requests I had the last years, I suggest you to book as quick as you can your desires!

Here is the list!

Annona coriacea:
the seeds of this variety has been collected from a good flavoured/sweet fruit. Orange pulp. Usually likes a lot of sun and dry climate, but I found out this a quite flexible specie. Middle/slow growing.

Price 25 Euro.

Further info: http://www.colecionandofrutas.org/annonacoriacea.htm





Annona dioica:
One of my favourite! It's a great bush a collector cannot miss. Quite flexible about the soil and rain. I'm certain about the good texture and flavour of this fruit thank to my good friend who had the chance to taste this jewel from Cerrado (Brasil). White pulp inside, green skin outside! Middle/slow growing.

Price per plant: 35 Euro

Further info http://www.colecionandofrutas.org/annonadioica.htm















Annona diversifolia
This one is an amazing fruit coming from the seeds reserve from our friend Raul in Mexico who almost risked his life to get the best. These are a selection of the best flavoured ilama. Not sure about the fruit colour, but looking at the young gems colour, probably red/pink pulp.

Price per plant: 30 Euro

further info: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ilama_(fruit)






Annona montana (Gaspar)
This is a good memory of one of the best botanical friend I ever had, Anestor, where I was lucky enough to get few seeds of his beloved A.montana "Gaspar" variety, one of the few montana with good flavour and texture, perfect for fruit juice. These are the lasts I have. Yellow pulp, green skin. R.I.P. my friend.

Price per plant: 25 Euro

For further info: http://www.colecionandofrutas.org/annonamontana.htm








Annona monticola
I even don't remember how many years I spent looking for this Cerrado treasure…. and after a lot of challenges, thanks to my friend Salvador, I got it! It's an AMAZING plant with also a good flavoured fruit, different from the other Annonaceae. It has soft fur outside, fashinating hazel colour, sexy fruit shape, green/white pulp inside. It's a plant very hard to get and a classic very slow growing specie, very appreciable, a true collector item. It's obvious to say this is something you cannot easily find even in a botanical garden..

Price per plant: 35 Euro

Annona rugulosa
This specie has a lot of rememberings to me. My great friend Anestor, who sadly passed away too early, sent me a batch of seeds many months ago and then I got some plants of his "best Annona I ever eaten" he was used to say. Endemic of his region, but now endangered, it was a real discovery for me, especially if you consider the soil/climate/temperature/humidity flexibility. White pulp, green/yellow skin. medium/fast grower.

Price per plant: 35 Euro

For further info: http://www.colecionandofrutas.org/annonarugulosa.htm







Annona vepretorum
A.vepretorum was a matter of a secret affair I was witness of! When I received the seeds of this specie I even didn't know anything about it. But when I started looking for more info, I discovered that it was an ultra rare specie from Caatinga region in Brasil with an excelent flavour and very good texture. Drought resistant and sun lover! Unfortunately, few trees remained endemic and I bet that in few years it will be one of the most sought after fruit from collectors. Well before deciding to sell here these natural masterpieces, I already received many requests but I preferred to be fair in my offers, as usual. Creamy yellow pulp, sweet, green skin. Slow growing.

Price per plant: 40 Euro

For further info: https://pfaf.org/user/Plant.aspx?LatinName=Annona+vepretorum















Annona warmingiana (Annona pygmaea)
Ok, this specie need just one comment: ultra rare nano-Annona! The amazing to see also the fruit/texture is good, as per my friend who had the chance to taste it fresh. Definitely very slow growing and tipically a collector's item you cannot miss. Very few available, not easy to germinate.

Price per plant: 40 Euro

For further info: https://www.facebook.com/raposadocerrad/posts/1430139243707577





Fitzalania heteropetala
I'm proud to have found one of the few Australian Annonaceae! It was a teamwork with friends living in Queensland where they got seeds from a botanical garden. Black flower! Orange fruits with good flavoured pulp! Slow grower but very nice and sexy specie. Not easy to find, few plants available.

Price per plant: 35 Euro

For further info: http://npqtownsville.org.au/Fitzalania-heteropetala.html






Diospyros texana
This is a successful experiment with Diospyros. finally I found a real sweet BLACK persimmon!!! Darker than D.digyna. Not easy to find, slow grower.

Price: 30 Euro

For further info: http://www.backyardnature.net/n/w/tex-pers.htm




Passiflora nitida (this one a rare variety from Cerrado)
I'm very focussed on Annonaceae, but this is an exception. When I saw the photos of the pulp/colours and shape of the fruit I got mad! This is a rare WILD CERRADO P.nitida from my friend Salvador. Than means it tolerates drought very well and is really a sun-lover!!! Truly an amazing specie for your garden. I love it so much...

Price: 30 Euro

Hi Beni, no news about Alphonsea?

cheers,

Giampaolo


Hi Beni, did you ever had the chance to find any Alphonsea specie in you fruit trade?

Borneo should be full of this kind of Annonaceae!


All the best,

Giampaolo
I will try learn it first my friend.  I never hear that before.  I will inform to you when get more about it.

10
Thanks Mark, prices duly added. I'm happy now there is someone now making some checks! I never played with this kind of things.

On reverse, It's a pity that in the past I spent much more cash buying stuffs from some "price players" seeds sellers, where there were moderators checking almost nothing. This time is hopefully gone.

Hi Oscar, I already sent you two emails without response and I'm still waiting the seeds of Annona spraguei I ordered the 30th of November 2017. Since I didn't receive anything at all, I was asking you if and when you shipped the packet.

Thanks,

Giampaolo

What a mess the Brasilin post!!!

By the way, I neither receive any answer from Dreamfrutas about my seeds!

Is he still alive here?

Thanks

Giampaolo


Hi

Good question about the date of the post.

Brazilian post offices have been terribly slow and confused since November, they are implementing new systems and working with a small staff of staff.

Even internal orders that took two useful, to be delivered are taking up to five days.

So the ideal is to follow the tracking and see how they are following the packages.







anybody else receive seeds yet?
When did you order?

20
Hi dreamfrutas I sent you a PM, did you already shipped my seeds? Thanks

Giampaolo

This member is a'Rip Van Winkle'. Wakes up after a few months, makes a post, never responds to posts or to mails, and goes back to sleep!

I agree, I asked for seeds early and she answered to me very late. And guess what: she already sold everything!

I'd like the Administrator looking into these kind of members!


Cheers!
