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

Nice image of the white starapple, which probably should have been called orange starapple. But you know how it is with common names.

How would you compare it to purple starapple?  Also, what is known about its growing conditions?

Never eaten it. This is a super rare plant outside of Africa. It grows in equatorial west Africa. Popular fruit in Nigeria, sold in markets.

Oscars right, in my experience with African collectors in a number of years, this species has never been located.  It is pretty RARE and hard to get.  Get it while you can.
