I can recommend ADAVO, located in Czech Republic. They ship to Europe.

Hello my friend! Congratulations! Can i get one please? Thank's!  ;D

Definitely! But if I remember correctly, I think I also have a few others you were interested in, no?

Anyway, Iíll be harvesting them when the vine dies back, between December and February. Iím not sure theyíll drop before then (they didnít last year). They also have a long dormancy. Mine didnít sprout until late March, and I still had some sprouting in June.

Come harvest time, I will be contacting all the individuals who originally expressed interest in the Air Potatoes (you included), to give them a head-start (and if they delay in re-contacting me back, Iíll save some bulbils for them, just in case). After that, Iíll post in the vegetable Buy Sell And Trade section (and link to it here) to advertise to the rest of the forum. I gotta figure out a price, I donít wanna go steep Ďcause I just wanna spread the variety, but doing it at my cost with a lot of interested parties wonít do... Maybe $5 (US currency) for a pair of small-to-mid-sized bulbils, plus the cost of packaging (which I also have to figure out... Iíve never sent anything before). Still not sure on any of these details yet, I gotta hash them out further. Iím also open to trades, depending on what people may have; in that case, we could just waive all costs for each other, or work something else out.

I have limited quantities of the non-bulbil-bearing species, so Iíll mostly restrict myself to those people that originally showed interest. Theyíll probably be cheaper than the bulbils.


Fine for me.

Excellent!

It occurs to me that I might have issues with branding (regarding SENA and, if I ever get it, "Las CaŮadas")... So, while I definitely want to acknowledge the source in naming my varieties, I also want to avoid legal issues. After all, while these varieties are being provided by these companies, they wouldn't be associated with them once they leave their hands. If someone were to make money off of them, it would be problematic for them to bear the name of a company that isn't receiving revenue from the use of their name. So, for official purposes, I'd like to acknowledge that Sena (note the change in capitalization) is the official full and complete name. It is derived from the acronym Stephward Estate Nursery, Africa, as an acknowledgment of its origins and subspecies, but it is not the acronym proper. It's just... Sena. It doesn't stand for the acronym (though it references it). And when I give material to the local Ag Research Station, that is what will be marked: the name and the origin, but not the acronym as anything more than a footnote. As for "Las CaŮadas" (I'm getting ahead of myself, considering that I don't have it yet, if I ever DO get it), I'd have to think of a different name... Perhaps Lasca? I don't know, I'll cross that bridge when I get to it.

Iím slightly reluctant to name the first one CV-Sativa, because Iím not absolutely certain that Sativa is the correct subspecies. Suavior has prominent lenticels, Sativa is smooth. Well this one starts out with prominent lenticels which migrate to the top as the bulbil inflates (leaving most of the bulbil smooth), and they become less conspicuous over time (still noticeable, but markedly less so than actual Suaviors, like Konkan Kalika). Iím not sure if this description is consistent with Sativa or not. Furthermore, Chandramohan is still on the lookout for more. If this turns out to be a Sativa, and he sends me a second nameless Sativa cultivar, what would I name it? Instead, Iíll adopt a numerical designation for it (regardless if I never get another one from Chandramohan). So the official cultivar name will be CV-1. If I happen to get more nameless varieties from Chandramohan, theyíll continue the numerical line.

Edit: I think $5 for a pair seems a bit expensive, but it depends on how much the vines produce and how many people are interested. This year they seem to be producing bigger but fewer bulbils. If production ramps up enough over the season, I could probably offer a few more bulbils for that price (unless demand still exceeds supply).
Hello my friend! Thank's a lot! Please tell me when you have them available. Regarding other species i don't remember but you can tell me. Best regards!  ;)

achetadomestica,

I do love sugar apples, the wife however does not. From what I have seen they do not give you much fruit for the size of the tree either.
LSU Purple I have heard does not produce good tasting figs for the first few years(and could take up to 7 from what I have heard).
I have never tried, let alone heard of Achacha or Garcinias, Ill have to research them.

cmichael258,
I have heard BM and Figo Preto are slow growing figs, but they are the best you can get, so to me its worth it. My biggest worry is like others have said, because of all the rain we get they will be washed out. Good luck on being patient, I know its hard especially when its the first fruit from the tree!
Hi! Yes i can tell you portuguese fig varieties are really good! My pingo de mel figs are big and so great... besides the honey sweetness the grains are so tiny that hardly are felt. Black figs are really good too. They are used mostly to dry and used like that or  with almods and nuts, make paste, etc! I live on a production area of figs and olives...  ;D

That is a fine collection! I think that precocious pomelo will be taxing on a tree so small.
Thank's! Yes it's impressive but he is growing very well...  ;D

Cold Hardy Citrus / Re: Yuzu... my new obsession!
« on: September 06, 2018, 10:20:40 AM »
Adavo has Sudachi? Are you sure? I have been there three weeks ago -no Sudachi. Real Sudachi. Hanayuzu is not Sudachi, that's false.
No, my sudachi is not from ADAVO. I got it from other place. And of course hanayuzu is not sudachi. I think mine are real because they came from seeds from Japan.

Nice, Luis, in full sun?
No, not full sun. It's a protected place from too hot and too low temp.
