Citrus Buy, Sell, & Trade / Re: Fingerlime
« on: August 13, 2018, 01:50:52 PM »
Hi everyone,
I live in Cyprus and i am looking to purchase Fingerlime trees. Unfortunately the local nurseries in my country do not have any. Can anybody help me to find some, whether it is by providing a webstore that ships to Cyprus, or any other way to find some fingerlimes.

Regards
Stefanos

Hello my friend. No they didn't fruit yet because due cold weather on winter they die back to the ground for two years. So last winter i dig them up and plant them in big pots. They are growing well now and i will let them on pots untill i can. Regarding banana plants to buy i can tell you some:

I would like to buy some Tylosema esculentum seeds, 10 - 40 seeds, shipping to Vietnam, paying by Paypal.
Common Name: Marama Bean.
Edible Uses:
Seed - cooked. After roasting, the seeds have a delicious, nutty flavour similar to coffee beans or roasted cashews[301]. They may be boiled with maize meal or ground into flour to prepare a porridge or a coffee- or cocoa-like drink[299]. The roasted seeds have sometimes been used as a culinary substitute for almonds[299, 1309]. The seeds have a protein content around 30% (approaching that of the soya bean) and an oil content around 40% (approaching that of the peanut)[301].
The immature seeds and stems may be eaten cooked as a vegetable or in soups[299].
A coffee-like beverage can be made from the seeds[317].
An edible oil is obtained from the seed[301]. Similar to almond oil in consistency and taste[299, 301]. Golden-yellow, with a nutty odour and a pleasant, although slightly bitter flavour[299, 1309]
Tuber - cooked. The sweet-tasting tuber can be baked, boiled or roasted[301, 317]. Young tubers have a sweet and pleasant taste and the texture has been described as similar to that of artichoke[299]. Tubers older than 2 years become fibrous and bitter and are usually not eaten, but they are an important emergency source of water for humans and animals[299].

Another Dioscorea bulbifera and Dioscorea hispida source: https://aseanplantexport.com/Tubers%20-bulb-Rhizomes?product_id=65

From the looks of things, that's a medicinal type, not an edible one. Like the ones on eBay. I wouldn't trust it. Bulbifera isn't like hispida or the other famine food yams... If you get a toxic type, processing it won't leach out the - very potent - toxins (that only works on the semi-toxic types, which shouldn't even be grown in my opinion, given the variety of bulbifera cultivars that lack that toxicity).
THANK'S!  ;D

Pineislander is talking to Jim, so if there's material to be shared I expect he'll get it this year and be sending it out from next year's harvest. Though I wouldn't mind talking to Jim myself to see if he knows of additional sources for other varieties.

As for eBay, all the currently available bulbifera growers I've tried are selling theirs as medicinal, not edible, so there's nothing there.

I'm still waiting on a reply from YouTube's Plant Assasin, as well as a guy from India who blogged about seeing (and I think growing) three Asian cultivars (seemingly Suavior, judging from the prominent lenticels). I don't know if I'm expecting too much, considering the date of that post (2015), but I really hope he replies. Blog here. I'm considering contacting the Agricultural University mentioned in the blog post, but I'm not exactly sure how I'd go about it... That said, their variety is an improved Suavior developed by them, so I'd consider it important. I think I'll contact them sooner or later, though I'm not sure they'd be willing to ship to a random overseas grower.

I found out today that Rare Palm Seeds is selling D. bulbifera as a new item. After some trial and error figuring out the proper extensions, I called their office in Germany and confirmed that it is an edible Asian type. I combined it with Chachafruto / Basul (Erythrina edulis) to meet the 30 euro minimum and placed an order. Page link here, ordering link here.
WOW! That's great to know they have this two! Thank's!  ;D

No problem man. The plants are too big to ship however they root from cuttings very easily. Let me know if you want cuttings.
Yes i want cuttings...  ;D

Hi! I'm interested on chaya mansa...  ;)
