Hello I received a lot of seeds recently from Cameroon through Forest House Cameroon, who I highly recommend.

Here is the list of seeds I got:
Trichoscypha acuminata
Napoleonaea egertoni
Vitellaria paradoxa
Drypetes molunduana
Carapa oreophila
Treculia obovoidea
 Thaumatococcus danielli

 Dacryodes edulis
Dacryodes edulis (giant safou)
Dennettia tripetala
Coula edulis
Cola suboppositifolia
semecarpophylla
Cola pachycarpa

Cola accuminata
 Borasius palm
Annonidium mannii
Annona stenophylla
Annona senegalensis
Annickia chlorantha
Afrostyrax kamerunensis
Aframomum sp
Aframomum melegueta(hot as pepper)
 Aframomum sp - sweet

 I was wondering if anyone had germination suggestions for them, since not all of them came germinated and I wanna make sure I do it correctly. Also I would be interested if anyone could ID some of them, a decent amount I couldn't find any information online besides photos of the fruit, which got me interested in buying them. The junglesop, shea butter, and a few others I know but the rest are the ones I am having trouble with. Any help is appreciated

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Where To Buy These Plant Processors
« on: July 03, 2018, 11:17:07 PM »
Hey I know this isn't exactly tropical fruit related, but I was wondering if anyone on here knew where to buy Cold Press Oil machines, the ones that can press nuts, seeds, and other foods to make things like coconut oil, avocado oil, olive oil, etc. I am also interested in a machine that can turn plants into essential oils, that I can then use for personal products like soap, shampoo,etc. I believe they are usually called steam distillers or stills. I have searched google for these products but have barely found anything, and if i do it's not credible at all and from somewhere like india or china. If anyone has any sources for these products or more information that would be extremely helpful. Thanks

Hello I was interested in mostly any grafted Tropical Fruit Trees. I tried to place an order from plantogram since they have a lot, but they cancelled it since they said they don't ship to me. I was really confused since it says on their front page they ship worldwide, and I am in a US territory.

Anyways, I am interested in any website you recommend that sells grafted trees, I would also be interested in buying from anyone on the forum who has any for sale and ships to me. I am most interested in grafted artocarpuses, theobromas, and jaboticaba varietes, however I am open to other species. Comment on this post or message me if you have any.

Thanks

Hey I recently moved to Puerto Rico, and I am looking to start a food forest I can live off of without buying from the store. So I am preferably looking for foods such as breadfruit that can be used as a vegetable type fruit, or plants that have multiple uses. I won't be able to pick up any plants in Puerto Rico for a while, so I am looking for people who can ship to me from inside of Puerto Rico, or people who can ship to me outside of Puerto Rico.

I am preferably looking for plants/grafted plants so they can start producing sooner, but I am also interested in seeds so they can become naturalized to my environment quicker and increase the amount of diversity. Here is a list of specific of plants and genus I am looking for.

Theobroma Grandiflorum Cupuassu,Cupuacu
Theobroma Bicolor - Mocambo
Any other theobroma besides theobroma cacao unless you have a uncommon variety
Elaeis guineensis - African Oil palm
Vitellaria paradoxa - shea butter tree
Baobab varieties(really looking for large trees or grafted trees so they produce quicker)
Citrullus lanatus - egusi
Dacryodes edulis - butterfruit tree
Sclerocarya birrea - marula
Boscia senegalensis - aizen or mukheit
Vitex species - Chocolate Berries
Detarium senegalense, Leguminosae - sweet deter
moringa varieties
Sapindus detergens - soapnut/soapberry
