Title: Flying Fox Fruits Nursery
Post by: FlyingFoxFruits on December 27, 2013, 09:44:41 PM
Greetings to all,

I'm proud to announce that my nursery, Flying Fox Fruits, is open for business. (after Jan 2. 2014)

I'm currently shipping seeds, scions, fruits (miracle fruit mostly), and plants.

My website www.FlyingFoxFruits.com (http://www.FlyingFoxFruits.com) is under construction, but you can still access some photos of what's in my collection.

I specialize in plants that can be fruited in containers.  My offerings consist primarily of Myrciaria/Plinia (jaboticaba varieties), Eugenias, Annonas, Garcinias, and Pouterias.

If I've posted pictures on the forum of a fruit or plant that you might want, chances are I have access to that species.

I CAN SHIP PLANTS to all 50 states right now (CA, TX, AZ, LA, and HI), although AZ is difficult and requires phtyo.

For those of you in FL, shipping charges will be cheap, and in some cases free shipping can be arranged for wholesale orders (to nurseries on our route North to AL, and South Homestead).

Thanks for your patience as I build my webpage, and start my business.   

Please feel free to contact me via email at: FlyingFoxFruits@gmail.com
or just send me a PM through the forum.

Sincerely,

Adam

Saff good luck and it looks like you have a black flying fox as your emblem. Grey headed and Spectacled are the most voracious fruit eaters here and there are Spectacled flying foxes in my yard every night. They love papaya and sapodilla and I hear them squawking and screaming.

I am sure you will be seedy during yule.

Thanks to everyone!!

your support and encouragement has been tremendous!

Sorry that this is an off time of year and not as many species are avialable!

But as the we near springtime, I will update the website (and this thread) before new items become available.

Thanks again for all of the very kind comments!

I look forward to growing fruits with you, for years to come!

Sincerely,

Adam

Of course, wishing you well and great success.  I was wondering what attracted you to the flying fox as a name/logo of your business.  Very non-Floridianish.

Annonaddict!

great idea...I will put some airlayers on my starcherries (pitangatuba) ASAP...It should be able to root via airlayer, but I've never tried.

if it does work, they still wouldnt be ready until spring.

i will let you know when Ive put some airlayers on my trees...I'll also try to post some pic.

Harry,

I chose the grey headed flying fox proper as the supporter of my great seal, mainly because it's a voracious consumer of fruits (capable of delivering fruit seeds via air mail so to speak)...although it's not a floridian symbol, it's one of a real fruit addict!  An animal that lives breathes and eats nothing but tropical fruit!

Thanks Adam, that's awesome, count on me to order if they root successfully! Awesome mascot, It's a really cool animal.

Thanks Adam, that's awesome, count on me to order if they root successfully! Awesome mascot, It's a really cool animal.
BTW: How much would the cost be for two Pitangatuba air layers without shipping?

without shipping it would be about $16-$20 for a pair.  Shipping via UPS next day air is very cheap, I can offer very large discounts...it would only cost about $15 to ship to CA.  (but prices are subject to increase, they always do slowly)

I'm excited to try some airlayers.  I will make about 20...and I'll try to post pics.

You know the pitangatuba (Starcherry) is variable, in size, shape, productivity, and flavor.  The flavor differences have been subtle so far, but the shapes have been different (some long, some fat, some small), and the productivity has been different...some are just heavy producers.

Of course I will only propagate the best types.  (I have some large plants that flower all the time, and won't even set one fruit)

My apologies to the buyers who've contacted me from CA, TX, and AZ...

it turns out that I can't ship airlayers to your state....I was confused by Louisiana's laws, which actually allow for airlayers to be sent.

I wish CA, TX, and AZ could adopt this law....

sorry I can't ship to those states (besides Lucky Louisiana)

here is the law that confused me (somehow I thought it applied to the other states that are regulated...wishful thinking.)

"MATERIALS REGULATED:  Soil, sand and plant parts produced below soil level except: soil free aquatic plants, air plants grown in soil free media, air layered plants root wrapped in original soil free moss, dormant bulbs and corms if free from roots and soil, soil free edible fleshy roots, corms, tubers and rhizomes, and industrial sand and clay."

Felipe,

right now I would be limited to Ross sapote, "whitman" green sapote, and Oro canistel,

In the future I should be able to get some Fairchild #2 scions...although it wouldn't be from my tree (I don't even have one yet, but I know several people who do) ,and I will have access to most of the mamey varieties from Zill...but need to take the trip down there to get them.

I have "caribou" abiu, and "harvest moon" abiu....but I'm not sure how to send scions long distances without removing the foliage, and wrapping with paraflim (buddytape).  I wonder if I can send scions with foliage somehow?

Also I can try to  hunt down anything you maybe looking for...I have lots of friends in FL.

(in the next year or two, I'd like to be able to offer some P. coelomatica scions, but my tree grows so slow it's ridiculous)

Please let me know if I can help you out!

Adam, you may want to check with your Ag Inspector to see if indoor & hydroponically grown plants (free of soil, not exposed to pests) would qualify for shipping to CA... may be worth pursuing for your CA customers.

Yes, please do Adam, I would love to have some actual plants rather than scion or seed from your nursery because I am not a very good grafter. I have only had one grafting success and it was with apples which aren't even tropical. I think plants would be much better in my case.

Post by: FlyingFoxFruits on January 01, 2014, 05:55:09 PM
from what I understand, yes I could potentially do what you're saying...

but!


I can't grow indoors at my house...(I don't want to run a business at my home address)..so for now.I'm stuck with some regular old greenhouses, they don't even have concrete flooring...but I have about 500sqft of greenhouse jam packed with plants...and access to scions you won't find for sale anywhere else.

After all, I am trying to encourage more people to start grafting!

but seriously speaking, I'm trying to be set up for shipping to CA (LA TX AZ) by this summer.

sorry i can't ship plants now.

yes!!!

and I will have access to most of the varieties that are sold by Zills! (but patented varieties like Coconut Cream will not be available)

I'll also have access to some of the rare mango varieties that zills doesn't have!

I can send seeds and scions to any state in the USA!

Adam, you can send layers to the terrrible four: CA, TX, AZ, and LO. Air layers are not subject to nematode rules as long as the air layer is taken a certain distance from the ground. I think here it is 4 feet. Might be different in FL. Just say that to inspectors when you take it in to be passed. Ofcourse the air layer ball has to be totally free from ants, which usually means they have to be dipped.

Ditto, what Oscar said, this seller on ebay sells freshly cut air layer lychee and have been sending her air layers to many customer in CA, including me, that came through fine. On the box, has the Fl Ag stamp on it too. Maybe you might want to ask her, what is the process? BTW, her name is Suzanne Greene from Merritt Island, FL.

will you be able to sell mango scions to Californians? great looking site best of luck.

yes!!!

and I will have access to most of the varieties that are sold by Zills! (but patented varieties like Coconut Cream will not be available)

I'll also have access to some of the rare mango varieties that zills doesn't have!

I can send seeds and scions to any state in the USA!

Thanks Adam. Can't wait to see the lists. Will there be a ridiculous minimum order of 100USD rule?

Adam, i'm curious why you picked flying fox as your nursery name? Especially given there are none in Florida? I think these destructive fruit eating creatures bring a shiver to fruit growers in Australia and S. Pacific. Definitely would not be a good name in those areas! HAHA

Of course, wishing you well and great success.  I was wondering what attracted you to the flying fox as a name/logo of your business.  Very non-Floridianish.



Harry,

I chose the grey headed flying fox proper as the supporter of my great seal, mainly because it's a voracious consumer of fruits (capable of delivering fruit seeds via air mail so to speak)...although it's not a floridian symbol, it's one of a real fruit addict!  An animal that lives breathes and eats nothing but tropical fruit!

thanks once again to the kind forum members who have expressed their support for my new nursery!

I had an opportunity to visit the Flying Fox Fruits nursery yesterday.  Adam was a gracious host and gave me a tour of his greeenhouses. Wow!  The number of species was mind boggling. It was quite impressive. Adam also gave me a taste of his Red jabo. It was the first time I have tasted any jabo  fruit although i do have a young tree. Loved it of course and plan on planting more. I picked up a Tori loquat for a decent price and I'll be back for more exotic trees. Thanks Adam!

Thanks Val!

It was a very nice to meet you!  I always like to meet forum members, and to get a chance to put a face with a username.

Believe it or not, you were my first customer to visit the nursery since I've got my license!

I really appreciate your enthusiasm for tropical fruits...9 out of 10 people wouldn't give a rats petunia about all of the plants I'm growing...but I think that's slowly changing....people are catching on.  They're starting to realize that we can grow 100's of edibles, rather than dozens.

Thanks again for coming to visit, and supporting me!

If you ever have any questions, or anything I can help you with, please don't hesitate to ask!

Hello to everyone!

Just wanted to give you an update on the website.  It's getting closer to being operational, but it's still under construction for the now.  You can still view lots of pictures, and some information on the website, so feel free to browse around.  I will be gradually adding to the website as the days go by.

Also, for those who are able to pick up plants locally, I have some nice 3 gal seedling (about 3ft tall) Abius for $40, and I have some 3 gal Red (Hybrid) Jaboticabas in 3 gal, about 2.5 ft tall (from soil), for $40 each, (should fruit in 1-2 yrs), and some nice 7 gal, about 4ft tall (from soil), for $75 each (should fruit this year, or next year!).

thanks once again to all of the members who've been so supportive of my new nursery!

Sincerely,


Adam

I promise I'm working on the CA shipping (and the rest of the nematode quarantine states)...I'm trying to be ready by this Fall....so I can ship before the winter chill.

The good news is that my UPS shipping rates will be virtually unbeatable... we are able to give a 30-50% discount on UPS shipping services.

Hello to all,

I have a small batch of Black Sapote seeds,(Diospyros digyna) for $1.50 each with a minimum order of 5 seeds.  I can ship them via USPS first class mail, or by priority mail 1-3 day delivery.

These are pictures of the fruits and the tree.

I've tasted a few black sapotes in FL, and some are not worth growing...they taste bland.  This one is sweet, with an excellent flavor (which I find hard to describe, much like a prepared pudding or mouse)

I believe the seeds are true to type, and the tree that produced the seeds is isolated from other Black Sapotes.

Please send me an email or PM to order some.

Thanks!


Adam

Hey Adam,

At least a couple of my M. aureana grafts are looking good/green still, so I'm very hopeful!  Can you tell me anything about M. tenella?  Do you have it?  Would seeds or scions be available anytime soon?  I'm curious to know your opinion as to the fruit quality, assuming you've tried it.

Carlos,

I'm grafting some trees, but not sure how many I'll have...my budwood supply is very limited.  I will try my best to make you one this year...but it could take me a while.

Adam are you going to have any Big Red Annona for sale?  If you do put me down for one.

I hope your grafts take!!  Please keep me posted!

as for tenella, this is what I've been told....there's more than one type of M. tenella, and one is superior...they are very small fruits, but supposedly very nice to eat...with a sweet flavor...and the tree is exceptionally ornamental...the bark peels in long strands...unlike the other myrciarias i've seen, which peel in patches. 

I don't have this tree, and have never tasted it.  It's not high on my list of species to collect soon, but I will eventually end up getting some  ;)

I've tried grafting tenella onto M.jaboticaba...and although the grafts pushed out new growth....they all died.  I'm certain this species is incompatible with M.jaboticaba/M. caulilfora, and similar species.

Hey Adam,

At least a couple of my M. aureana grafts are looking good/green still, so I'm very hopeful!  Can you tell me anything about M. tenella?  Do you have it?  Would seeds or scions be available anytime soon?  I'm curious to know your opinion as to the fruit quality, assuming you've tried it.

Title: Re: Flying Fox Fruits nursery, a source for rare seeds, scions, fruits, and plants
Post by: FlyingFoxFruits on February 28, 2014, 10:15:19 PM
Hey Fox Man, what's the difference between the Paulista and Sabara jabos?

The Paulista is one of several varieties of  the actual  species M. cauliflora, the fruits and leaves are quite large...this plant is also rare in the USA.

the Sabara is the most common variety of jaboticaba in the world (everyone in the USA has this just about) the correct species name is M. jaboticaba.

the Sabara is an excellent fruit, and this variety of jaboticaba tolerates a wide range of soil conditions...hence it's wide spread status in Brazil, and the rest of the world.   Its the quintessential jaboticaba!
Title: Re: Flying Fox Fruits nursery, a source for rare seeds, scions, fruits, and plants
Post by: fruitlovers on March 01, 2014, 12:35:36 AM
Paulista is what we used to call, in pre-Lorenzi days, the large leafed jaboticaba. It's not so rare here. It produces very large fruits, but it is not nearly as productive as sabara, which used to be called here the small leafed jaboticaba. That used to be our whole jaboticaba world here: small leafed and large leafed. Funny because this small world situation was the same in Australia, except for them the large leafed was the Grimal jaboticaba (M. spirtio-santensis).

If it flowers this season , then i will wait after it fruits to do some selective prunning.
i would like to keep it at 8ft Max if possible in a 25 Gal pot.
Next winter once the frost hits, i would have to lay it down inside the GH, untill the weather clears.

That is the Plan for now, if i sell the house then South FL we come ! ;).

Hope to actually make it back up to see you this summer and your new nursery.

Thanks!

I can actually ship certain plants to CA and TX now, as stock dealer of certified plants.

Right now I only have white jade pineapples for sale, but I should have some other stuff soon!

Hi Adam,

What fruit trees can you ship?

Thanks,


I can only ship plants from other nurseries in FL, who are certified to ship to CA (TX,AZ, LA).

Right now the only thing I'm offering is the White Jade Pineapples...but I should be able to buy and resell some stuff from other FL nurseries.  It just might take me a while to make the trip down to South FL to get the trees... we will probably head down to Zill's and Pine Island Nursery about every 2-4 weeks...I'm not sure exactly what they have certified to be able to ship out to CA though

here is a link to the list of all of the nurseries who produce plants that can be shipped to CA, TX, AZ and LA.

http://www.freshfromflorida.com/Divisions-Offices/Plant-Industry/Business-Services/Registrations-and-Certifications/Nematode-Certification/Type-III-Nematode-Certified-Nurseries-by-Name (http://www.freshfromflorida.com/Divisions-Offices/Plant-Industry/Business-Services/Registrations-and-Certifications/Nematode-Certification/Type-III-Nematode-Certified-Nurseries-by-Name)

if you click the link for the nursery name, it will show you all of the plants they're offering, that are certified free of nematodes.

Don't know how it works in FL, but here the nematode certificate is only for the nursery to which it was issued, can't ship plants with that certificate unless you are that nursery. Makes sense because once out of that nursery's hands who is to say if the plants are properly protected from nematodes?

yes I will be shipping out some more next week!

I will start sending out invoices again in the next few days.

Because this batch of pineapples is a bit smaller, I will be selling them for a slightly cheaper price.
Do you still have White Jade, Adam?

Are you still mailing out white jades, I was on the list but not contacted yet.

Oscar,

In my situation, I have to ship the plants immediately after picking them up from the nursery...or in certain cases, nurseries will do me a favor, and hold onto the stock in their facility until I'm ready to ship.  This way the stock isn't commingled with plants that aren't certified.

My customer, that is a nursery, ships from south Florida to Texas plants that they buy from other nurseries every day.  There is a form for that.  I wrote the program that generates the list of plants and nursery that they were brokered from for all orders on the truck.  It prints on the numbered, preprinted form from Florida Dept of Ag.  It is called a "CONSOLIDATION DECLARATION FOR FLORIDA NURSERY STOCK DESTINED TO TEXAS OR LOUISIANA".  It states, "This is to certify that the nursery stock material in this shipment has been examined within the past year and found to be apparently free of the burrowing nematode and meets the requirements for Texas Quarantine 4TAC, Chapter P., Diaprepes root weevil."

Don't know how it works in FL, but here the nematode certificate is only for the nursery to which it was issued, can't ship plants with that certificate unless you are that nursery. Makes sense because once out of that nursery's hands who is to say if the plants are properly protected from nematodes?

Greetings to all,

I'm proud to announce that my nursery, Flying Fox Fruits, is open for business. (after Jan 2. 2014)

I'm currently shipping seeds, scions, fruits (miracle fruit mostly), and plants.

My website [url=http://www.FlyingFoxFruits.com]www.FlyingFoxFruits.com[/url] ([url]http://www.FlyingFoxFruits.com[/url]) is under construction, but you can still access some photos of what's in my collection.

I specialize in plants that can be fruited in containers.  My offerings consist primarily of Myrciaria/Plinia (jaboticaba varieties), Eugenias, Annonas, Garcinias, and Pouterias.

If I've posted pictures on the forum of a fruit or plant that you might want, chances are I have access to that species.

Sorry I CAN NOT SHIP PLANTS to certain states right now (CA, TX, AZ, LA, and HI), although most seeds, scions, and airlayers may be shipped to these states.

For those of you in FL, shipping charges will be cheap, and in some cases free shipping can be arranged for wholesale orders (to nurseries on our route North to AL, and South Homestead).

Thanks for your patience as I build my webpage, and start my business.   

Please feel free to contact me via email at: FlyingFoxFruits@gmail.com
or just send me a PM through the forum.

Sincerely,

Adam

Hi there,

Would you (or any other forum member, for that matter) be willing to ship young plants overseas to England in the UK? I grow tropicals (includng tropical fruit, herbs and spices) as indoor container plants. I would love to acquire a small sized mango, canistel or sapote cultivar that is capable of bearing fruit if grown in a sufficiently large (30 litre+) container on a permanent basis. I am currently growing healthy soursop/guanabana, sapodilla (manilkara zapota, of unknown variety), various citrus, lychee (of unknown variety), Hass avocado, allspice (pimenta dioica), dragonfruit and coffea arabica, but I have doubts as to whether these seed-grown plants will ever flower and bear fruit in containers. I figure that if I can successfully import live plants (preferably grafted dwarf or container-compatible cultivars), I would stand a more realistic chance of obtaining fruit.

I asked Connecticut-based Logees nursery (http://www.logees.com/ (http://www.logees.com/) ) if they can ship plants internationally; they said that it was too difficult a task, so they've made it company policy not to ship overseas. When I made enquiries with Florida-based Top Tropicals ( http://toptropicals.com/ (http://toptropicals.com/)) said that the cost of the phytosanitary certificate is prohibitively expensive (but they didn't actually quote the price).

Can anyone help?  :)

I used to import live plant from Thailand for the latest cultivars, but It seem all the Agricultural agencies in the world made the process so arduous expensive or the duration of red tape guarantee a sick plant on a long quarantine process, i resorted to seeds rather continue with my import permits & six months post inspection there after.

So I have resorted to seeds importation with less oversight, less headache & the expense.  You will have to select seeds from early bearing variety to get any chance of pot fruiting in your greenhouse. Bear in mind that the environment you are subjugating them too is not the optimal condition & some in pot might not fruit ever; but the authority on pot culture is not me. Read Assafron Adam thread on grafting so you can get budwoods to graft.

Yes!

I should have some scions for sale in the next 30-40 days...right now most of the trees are fruiting...right after they're finished, it will be time to start thinking about which varieties to propagate.

I will have to check to see which varieties I have...I'm quite certain I'll have:

Tori (one of my favorite, white flesh round fruit)
Novak (large orange, sweet fruits)
Peluche (supposed to make huge fruit, but has been reluctant to flower so far)

and should be able to get some Christmas scions too.

Here is a thread with some info about this species http://tropicalfruitforum.com/index.php?topic=9504.msg121292#msg121292 (http://tropicalfruitforum.com/index.php?topic=9504.msg121292#msg121292)

It apparently is an easy tree to grow, from a subtropical area in Brazil, that can handle a freeze, and fruit in a pot.  Supposedly makes a good fruit.

domestic shipping via USPS priority for $5.50, or first class for $3 (email for international shipping rates)

these seeds are from the most delicious grumixamas I've ever tasted...I believe they are a superior strain, and will likely produce seedlings that are similar (in terms of fruit quality) but I can't guarantee they will be yellow fruited....so some could turn out purple.

had to change my answer...I think u can grow them...but they do seem to appreciate less humidity and a bit of chill....in my experience the trees are very rugged...and can defintely fruit in most of south FL.


oh ya I just remembered they were fruiting heavily at fruit and spice...so I think they'll do just fine

yes I have just a few left...I will be running out soon...it can fruit in pot...but I believe its a large tree...eventually exceeding 25ft in height....so it will be a challenge for most growers to keep it in a pot for over  a decade...i have one about 6-7yrs old...still hasn't fruited, and its about 4ft tall, in a 25 gal pot.....I will keep it in this pot for at least another 2 yrs...hopefully until it fruits...I'm hoping for flowers in the next year or so!!

these seeds are from the most delicious grumixamas I've ever tasted...I believe they are a superior strain, and will likely produce seedlings that are similar (in terms of fruit quality) but I can't guarantee they will be yellow fruited....so some could turn out purple.

I would like to buy 10 seeds of yellow grumichama and some purple grumichama if you have it. What else do you have right now, Adam ?.

almost out of yellow Grumixama

have Yellow jabo, Red Jabo, and Blue jabo (blues are limited...down to less than 100)
 
also have Sabara (most common form of jaboticaba)

have bunch of meiogyne cylindrocarpa seeds...can give a price break on these.

have black surinam cherry seeds

waiting for Garcinia acuminata seeds to arrive....hopefully soon.

Garcinia acuminata seeds just made it in today!  I have a limited amount available now!

This tree is almost everbearing in south FL, as reported in Bill Whitman's book "Five decades" (who I think introduced this species into USA), and the fruits are also reported to be delicious, acid sweet..(like lemony cotton candy, so I've heard)  This fruit is often confused with G. madruno, which is an entirely different species. 

here is a translated link to a website that has some info on this species.

http://translate.google.com/translate?sl=pt&tl=en&js=y&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&u=http%3A%2F%2Fe-jardim.com%2Fproduto_completo.asp%3FIDProduto%3D6&edit-text=&act=url (http://translate.google.com/translate?sl=pt&tl=en&js=y&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&u=http%3A%2F%2Fe-jardim.com%2Fproduto_completo.asp%3FIDProduto%3D6&edit-text=&act=url)

they cost $3 each, with a minimum order of 4 seeds.

please email me to place orders.

Its a commercial mix from Lowes -  STA GREEN.  I typically add perlite and a few other things to lighten up commercial mixes, but this ones base ingredients are pretty good to begin with.

sorry don't have this one now.

I know of a fruiting tree, but the fruits are of poor quality (I believe conditions aren't proper for this fruit in FL)

What can you tell us about A. globiflora?


I wish I could tell you more...but here is what I know:

the tree doesn't get huge, I believe it can easily be fruited in a pot for many years.  Probably enjoys a neutral to alkaline pH, with good drainage.

I'm sure it can tolerate a freeze, but I'm not sure of the minimum kill temperature.

the fruits are small, about the size of a golf ball at best...they look just like a mini-guanabana.

the aroma is strong and sweet...much like a guanabana...the pulp is very succulent, and has a flavor that reminds me of guanabana, and monstera deliciosa (the flavor will appeal to an open minded fruit collector, but will be sure to scare off some of the less adventurous fruit eaters).  Also, the seeds are not very numerous....so there is plenty of pulp to eat, even though the fruits aren't large.


fruit (actually a large one)

Annona globiflora makes a very fragrant fruit...I think it needs to be very ripe before consuming...and I keep eating them a bit early....they need to be almost entirely black on the outside.

the flavor is a bit intense...with a banana laffy taffy aftertaste, and aroma....combined with guanabana...it's got to be very medicinal.

Ed
Title: Re: Flying Fox Fruits nursery, a source for rare seeds, scions, fruits, and plants
Post by: FlyingFoxFruits on May 03, 2014, 01:00:57 PM
thanks Ed!

the taste is very nice...it's hard to describe, but the fruits seem even more succulent than sabara, with less fiber (this has the smoothest pulp of all varieties I've tasted)

has thin skin, with less tannin than sabara.

the aftertaste is also slightly different than sabara...it really does remind me of a jaboticaba with a coffee berry flavor (not coffee beverage, the actual fruit), hence the name, jaboticaba cafe.

but if u can get flowers in less than 8 yrs, I will graft my thumb to my nose (t-bud), and get the name "Vleeracker" tattooed to my forehead.  :D

These are for local pick up only!

I picked out the last ones that Mike had at Treesnmore...his grumichamas are some of the best I've tasted, especially the yellow, which is much harder to find!  I guess it's a recessive trait...only about 5-10% of his trees seemed to be yellow fruited.

when I can give out extras I will do it!  Sometimes I can be extra generous...but sometimes I only have just enough seeds to fill an order!

pleasure trading with you!  I still have tons of your cherimoya seeds to plant.

Sorry to be late here, I dont use to enter to the sell/trade forum:

All the best for you! there is a lot of people out there that is wanting to preserve many fruit species and it's very important that some of us do that job

By the way, your photos are great (I liked specially the atemoya ones)

thank you Val!!

the peaches you gave me were some of the best I've tasted!  I wonder what type they were?

good luck with your new Garcinia!  It looked like it was ready to put on some new leaves...they only seem to flush about 3-4 times a year at the most...so it's kind of exciting for me, when I see new leaves emerging.

Tropic beauty I think. There might have been a tropic snow in the batch. I really slacked on the thinning this year.

most of the time they are about 1/4 inch thick, and 5-8 inch long.

but size can vary, depending on time of year, and the species being requested.

If you request larger or smaller scions, I can usually provide whatever size you need.

With jaboticaba, i know you are grafting high-ph-sensitive varieties onto sabara to improve ph results.  What is the best similar option for eugenias that are sensitive to high ph?  Is one better than another for here in FL, or is the common surinam cherry the best/easiest rootstock?  Thanks.  I got some fairly rare (for me at least) eugenia seeds from Jim West and i want to make it happen best i can.  I know there's E. Victoriana but i forget the rest i got from Jim.  I will check later and look them up specifically.  Just wondering with the rootstock on eugenias.  Thanks

Jeff,
great question, but unfortunately that's a whole other can of worms that I have not opened up fully.

there's lots of work to be done with this subject..i've only had time to seriously experiment with the Plinias and Myrciarias....and I've barely experimented the Eugenias.

I've tried grafting E. selloi and E. candolleana onto E.uniflora...but no luck..also tried E. pyriformis onto E. uniflora, the graft lived for a while before finally dying from incompatibility.

i've had plenty of success grafting onto the same species (uvalha onto uvalha, pitanga onto pitanga, cherry of rio onto cheryy of rio), but not much luck grafting onto different species.

I'm looking to graft E. calycina onto E. involucrata soon...I'll let you know if it works!

Also...right now I'm doing some experiments with Myrciaria/Plinia....and this week I've got some new information that could be groundbreaking...I will have to wait and see...but so far looks like I may have found a new match!!  and a chance for FL growers to grow a new crop!

the time has come...I must sell this big old Rollinia deliciosa tree....it's about 8yrs old, 8ft tall, and in a 65gal pot.  I planted the seed years ago, from a fruit that I ate at fruit and spice park.

it's for local pick up only...and you will need a decent sized bed in your truck to get it home.

the tree is larger now than in this picture....that photo was taken months ago...so its put on a foot or more of growth since....there is scale on the tree, but I didn't treat it with poison because I wanted to eat the fruit...I can treat the tree if you want...the scale is not bothering the tree though. ....it's very happy.

it needs to be planted, or put in a larger pot soon...

I've eaten several fruits from this tree, and they are excellent....Unfortunately I haven't got any fruits larger than a big sugar apple...because the tree needs to be planted.

the price for the tree is $200 firm....local pick up only, (at my nursery) (delivery might be a possibility...but not cheap...I have access to a box truck sometimes)

please email if you're interested .... thanks!  :)

Title: Re: Flying Fox Fruits nursery, a source for rare seeds, scions, fruits, and plants
Post by: FlyingFoxFruits on August 02, 2014, 03:17:13 PM
I believe it could be used as rootstock for Rollinia deliciosa, although I've not tried...it'd definitely much more cold tolerant..seems to withstand about 3-5 deg F, more cold....maybe more.

also I believe Cheirmoya is compatible with Biriba (R. deliciosa)...

also interesting would be the potential for hybridization...maybe make a more cold tolerant Rollinia hybrid?  (i just don't know if this is possible, but seems like it could be)

easy to grow, pretty tree, small fruits, not really worth eating in my opinion... could be valuable for breeding or cold tolerant rootstock?

any how, its a tree for collectors or breeders.

Rootstock for example for rollinia deliciosa?



I'm not too optimistic regarding cherimoya / r. deliciosa (biribá) compatibility.

My graft is still alive, but the initial growth spurt has stalled. The scions look healthy but
do not seem to be growing much...

Maybe, cherimoya has a dwarfing effect on R. deliciosa???

I believe it could be used as rootstock for Rollinia deliciosa, although I've not tried...it'd definitely much more cold tolerant..seems to withstand about 3-5 deg F, more cold....maybe more.

also I believe Cheirmoya is compatible with Biriba (R. deliciosa)...

I'd heard before that rollinia and cherimoya are not compatible. But let us know what happens to your graft? Thanks.

yes I wouldn't doubt it!

I've never tried using cherimoya as rootstock for rollinia, but I remember hearing someone say they had success (at least with short term compatibility)

LOL ....all the more reason to buy my seeds and try them as rootstocks....maybe they are better than cherimoya? (lol maybe they are worse?   ??? :P)

Got some seeds of a mini avocado cultivar, called "Del Rio Big"...funny because the fruits are small.

the taste is not bad...and the tree is precocious (not too tall either) fruited in about 4 yrs from seed.  Grows true to seed....the seeds are quite small, about the size of a golf ball.

have a small amount of seeds to sell for $2 each.

here is a pic of a full sized fruit.

Do you think it is a good idea to plant cinnamon apple about 4ft away from Canistel ?. I'm running out of space  :P.

Do you have green sapote ?.

Adam,

Mohd,

honestly that would be a crowded planting!

but you could pull it off i suppose..with lots of pruning...and although u might not get large crops off both trees, you could have more variety in a confined growing area.

I guess it depends on your strategy, but anything is possible...especially if you are willing to sacrifice fruit productivity, for increased variety.

sorry no green sap seeds now!  not sure when...my tree is not flowering now, and I sold one of my large trees...I will have scions soon, before November.

I have a lone amazon tree grape...about 1.5 yr old now?  about 6ft tall, in a 3 gal root pruner pot, very healthy...

u need male and female plants and the tree can get large, so this is not a challenge for all growers.

(sorry can't ship, unless I cut the tree in half, which might be possible?...would prefer local pick up)

cost is $40.

now I have some Eugenia pyriformis (acid type) Uvalha seeds for $1 each (minimum order of 4 seed)

the tree is very easy to grow, not having a problem with die back like E. stipitata.  The fruit is much like E. stipitata, except the fragrance and flavor is a bit different (seeds are also more numerous in Uvalha) the taste of this fruit reminds me of G. hombroniana, having something of a banana after taste, but very sour. 

Definitely too sour for most to enjoy out of hand, but should be great with some sugar, the flavor is powerful and tropical.

this fruit came off of small tree I have, less than 4 ft tall, in a 7gal pot.  This plant is also tolerant of freezes, not sure how much cold it can take, I'm guessing the kill temp is around 25-27F, but could be higher or lower.

Nice to know they are cold hardy, my is a sweet variety & I am breeding for dwarf. Will be re poting in aero pot to speedup fruiting than.  Great for the data on this new plant I have recent add to my collection.  Manage to kill 12 of mine, learn they dont like standing water and drought test I give to my annona & jack.  I wont give an ant scale test anytime soon, find the sweet variety is hard to find.

I'm glad u got that 25g tree!  It may be years before I will have another one that size for sale.  I originally got that tree from cookiemonster (Jeff), and it was in a 3 gallon pot, about 2.5 ft tall....I think that was back in 2011?

I kept one for myself....I bought 2 from cookiemonster actually.....the variety was Whitman....both trees have flowered nicely this, but hadn't set fruits yet....I'm thinking they will fruit in the next 2-3 yrs.

Val,
I've got your tree's twin, and here is what I plan to do...

Keep it in the same 25 gal pot for about 1 more year...Hoping to get a good bloom early winter, and maybe some fruit set...

If i can get fruit set, once they get to a decent size, I will step it up into a 45 gal...where I hope it will sit for at least another 1.5yr.

after the 45 gal, it will be time for me to sell, or plant this tree..i don't feel like having another 100 gal plant to deal with!

Limited amount of Kwai muk seeds, direct from Grimal's Grove, in Big Pine Key, FL....$2 ea, no minimum order.

I have heard from experienced Kwai muk eaters, that some trees produce superior fruits.

I have only tasted fruits from one tree, which was the one Adolf Grimal planted at his grove.  The fruit was excellent, reminding me of a citrus, mango flavor...I can't imagine them tasting much better.

2 questions: 

1a:  Is vinho tinto (A. reticulata) true from seed?

1b:  If so, when do anticpate seeds being available?

2:  Do you recommend getting a grafted plant for reticulata or doesn't it matter?

Thanks.  I like how the fruit looks, and if it tastes like other reticulata, i am game!!

from what I've gathered this variety is true to seed!

Luc originally collected this variety from the wilderness of Mexico, and planted seeds...the resulting seedlings produced fruits that were like the parent plant.

Also the foliage of this variety is most unique, it doesn't look quite like any other custard apple I've seen.  Leaves seem broader, and more flimsy than other reticulatas.

I hear it is a most delicious fruit!   I'm still waiting on mine to set fruits, maybe next year.  My mother tree flowered but hasn't set fruit yet.  The small grafted trees have also flowered, but I've not let them set fruit yet. 

I think a grafted tree is the quickest way to get your own fruit, I don't know where to get seeds.

I have a 15 gal, grafted Harvest moon abiu from Pine island nursery

It got cold damage last year, and died back, now its regrown nicely, but got hit with some wind chill again this year...it's about 6ft tall in the pot.  It has an ugly scar where it died back, and some leaf burn from cold....but otherwise it's very healthy.

This one is a steal $25, local pick up only

i should have some scions available for annonas soon..maybe Feb at the earliest.

I will be sure to post.

this year the annona scion season was from about Feb-May, then really died off around August...I suspect next year will be the same.

Will you have grafted CORG this year?  Looking for Ben's BEaut and Queen Hayri.

The special cherry of rio tree I named queen Hayri, got a bad fungal disease on the trunk and I gave it to my friend to rehab...but I just saw the tree again and now it's completely girdled, with cambium is totally dead all the way around the trunk near the graft union....but the tree is still looking good!  Maybe it will eventually heal up?  I'm surprised it's not struggling now?  I thought it needed cambium intact to keep green leaves? But I Guess not

Bens beaut was planted in ground, still haven't got a good crop yet, but maybe this season.  I will make more after it fruits most likely

Not sure if I can make more of the queen Hayri ...I may need to go visit the tree!

Title: Re: Flying Fox Fruits nursery, a source for rare seeds, scions, fruits, and plants
Post by: FlyingFoxFruits on February 08, 2015, 01:28:05 PM
Good day, dear forum members,

I'm curious what the group thinks of my idea.....I'm considering trying something new this year...

I might start offering grafted plants before they're healed....

although they're not guaranteed to take, there is a very high chance they will take....

I'm thinking if they for some reason do not take, I can ship out replacement scions for free, so you can try to graft again...(I would also be strategic with the grafts that I employ, so that I wouldn't compromise the rootstock, leaving enough trunk left for second attempts at grafting.)

here are some advantages to purchasing a grafted tree before it heals:
1) you don't have to wait as long!

2) the price is significantly reduced because I don't have to keep the tree in my custody while it's healing

3) I can quickly fill custom orders in some cases (like cocktail trees, or trees with special rootstocks)

4) with high demand items you will be able to essentially cut in front of the line....getting items before I offer them to the public.

and some obvious disadvantages:

1) the graft may not take!  Usually I have very high success 80% or more, but sometimes there is always the inevitable failure!

2) you must keep the tree happy while it heals from grafting...this means treating the plant like usual, nothing fancy....in most cases the biggest problems are either lack of warmth and humidity (in cold regions), or lack of moisture and intense heat (in hot or dry regions).

3) when the tree is healed...you must remove grafting tape by yourself...it's not difficult, but you must do this so the tree isn't girdled by the grafting tape...you can leave the tape on the scion to biodegrade, but not around the graft union.   The tape around the graft union is wound up so tight that it doesn't degrade as quickly.

4) you must have some interest in grafting...if not, you might end up with a tree that's just a rootstock!  I can send free replacement scions, but if you're not willing to graft, they are useless!

This whole deal I'm thinking of is just in the works....it's not for everyone (especially if you don't want to try grafting), and not for every plant (some plants just can't handle that type of abuse, being grafted and shipped partially bare root without healing).

At first I will probably offer some of the Myrciarias, Eugenias, Annonas, and Loquats....I won't have many pouterias or garcinias now, but maybe later in the year.

I'm interested to hear some of your thoughts on this idea.

Although there are some risks involved, I think in some cases it might work out very well.

thanks in advance for your feedback!
(I'm going to decide whether or not to offer this deal, based on the responses I get)

Post by: BENDERSGROVE on February 08, 2015, 01:52:17 PM
Think that while a good idea shipping non-fully healed grafts is a big risk to you. Especially this time of year with winter still going in most parts of the country. My 2 cents! Hope all is well bro.

I think another problem would be the graft union getting pushed off during the shipping. I have seen some beat up boxes due to the shipping process.

Post by: FlyingFoxFruits on February 08, 2015, 06:05:05 PM
I'm not going to wait for strike three! 

I don't think I will offer this service to the public, but in certain cases I can offer this deal!

for instance, right now I have a customer who really must have a grafted camu camu...so I will graft one onto M. vexator and mail it now (sent without healing the plant cost $15, which cost half the price of a healed plant for $30)....if it doesn't take, I will send a few scions for him to have a second chance!  if that fails, then maybe we can try again?

(I might also try selling the trees in pairs, because you'll have a better chance of one taking, and you might even get two trees for the price of one)...I'm always thinking of ways to sell plants for cheaper, and faster...maybe this idea can be helpful?

I will let you know how this works out!

I know it can be done easily for loquats, and jaboticabas!
Title: Re: Flying Fox Fruits nursery, a source for rare seeds, scions, fruits, and plants
Post by: fruitlovers on February 10, 2015, 03:22:28 AM
I think it would be ok if you clearly spell out who takes responsibility if the graft doesn't take, you or the customer? Would be best for people that have some experience of taking care of young grafts to help them heal, not for general public. Also would be best for pick up at the nursery, as in shipping they could get damaged. Unless ofcourse you package them extra carefully as in padded in foam inside a Samsonite suitcase.  ;)

Hi Adam,

I guess your idea may not be good for international trades, at least for me  >:(.   Nonetheless, I have some queries after watching your video on grafting, hopefully you can enlighten me with some tips. First, you seem to wrap up the scion completely, including over the buds, is it true? Then, the buds would push through the tape, or your buddy tape?  Second, can I do a Clive graft with some leaves cut half?  Third, what is the common ways to dwaft a fruit tree?

(Will write to you later for order.)

Thanks.

great advise as usual Oscar, thank you.

I've sent some grafted unhealed plants yesterday (after giving a big disclaimer to my customer...lol)....let's see how things turn out!

maybe the first pair of M dubias grafted onto M. vexator sent in the mail in the history of the universe... :P

I will pray they are the first to survive as well! :-\

The unhealed grafted plants arrived in perfect condition for my customer...now let's see if the grafts take.

Ive coached my customer through the process of caring for the unhealed plant....so I'm confident that we have a good chance for succes.

Will post an update soon (maybe 20-30 days)...if the grafts start pushing that will be a great sign.

Jeff if I had to guess I'd say it would take 2-3 yrs, that's if your scion was from mature wood...mine are not, so it may take closer to 3-5 yrs....

Also, I haven't even tested the long term compatability for m vexator as rootstock...it could have a dwarfing effect....or could be incompatible over the long run....but so far I'm convinced they are a decent match...my small grafted tree is growing slowly, but very healthy...which is normal for most of my tiny grafted myrciarias...

update!

I still have scions available for most of the varieties I posted.

BUT I'M RUNNING OUT OF BUDDY TAPE, AND IT IS TOO MUCH LABOR TO WRAP ALL THE SCIONS!

PLEASE NOTE THAT FOR FUTURE ORDERS, THE SCIONS WILL COME IN PLASTIC BAGS WITH VERMICULITE (THIS IS JUST AS GOOD, IF NOT BETTER THAN BUDDY TAPE IN MY OPINION)...IT WILL BE MUCH EASIER FOR ME TO KEEP UP WITH ORDERS THIS WAY.....WRAPPING THEM WITH BUDDY TAPE IS A HASSLE!

SORRY FOR THE INCONVENIENCE.

Biriba (Rollinia deliciosa)
(http://s21.postimg.cc/3kctv5l5f/IMG_0825.jpg) (http://postimg.cc/image/3kctv5l5f/)

rainforest plum (Eugenia candolleana)
(http://s21.postimg.cc/5rch5c11v/IMG_0826.jpg) (http://postimg.cc/image/5rch5c11v/)

red jaboticaba (Myrciaria cauliflora hybrid)
(http://s21.postimg.cc/48h30cuhf/IMG_0828.jpg) (http://postimg.cc/image/48h30cuhf/)

Myrciaria glomerata (a new introduction into the USA, extremely rare species was mistaken for M. glazioviana for many years...now I'm here to set the record straight...I will be offering the true glomerata for the first time in the history of USA...and maybe we can finally convince the other nurseries in FL to label their trees as Myrciaria jaboticaba (Sabara)  ;D
(http://s21.postimg.cc/3ufr0radv/IMG_0827.jpg) (http://postimg.cc/image/3ufr0radv/)

I will be planting many other species of annona, myrciaria, eugenia, garcinia, and more!  Stay tuned...I will have another update in about a month!

yes!  I will be shipping these babies to CA later this year!!

I'm waiting until they're about 10 inch tall at least...and I want a very solid root system, so they are stronger for shipping.

I'm going to be shipping these little plants in USPS flat rate boxes....I can fit about 5-10 plants in a small flat rate box ($5)....and at least 20-30 in a medium flat rate box ($11)...it just depends on what I'm shipping.

coming soon, I have the chance to get some Inga cinnamomea seeds.

If I get enough pre-orders, I will offer the seeds.

I will have to offer them in batches of at least 15 seeds for $48 per batch.  Shipping is via USPS priority mail....or UPS if you want.

Please email me or send a PM if you are interested in pre ordering these inga seeds!

I will post pictures of this species later.

from what I understand it is a most beautiful tree, with flowers that smell like cinnamon....the tree is not an extremely fast grower...i've heard of a specimen that is 16 yrs old, and about 3-4 meters tall.  I believe they reach about 30ft in the wild.  Fruits from seed in about 5-6yrs.  Can handle brief cold exposure, I think the kill temp would be around 25-28F, depending on duration, and age of the tree.  I hear this is one of the best tasting inga species!!  I'd love to taste it's fruits one day!

Perhaps this has been asked before (too long to read previous 15 pages); do you require minimum order?
I am interested in your young Biriba; since you are shipping to California, I supposed it'll grow ok in California, right?
Thanks Adam!

This was when it looked better.. back in December..

Way to go, Adam. That's exciting to see your business expand. Going to have to restrain myself once the weather warms up, I think I've committed to quite a few plants from you. Your pop up from last year, little seedling, "Little Monster" Rollinia being one of them. I hope it's ready to graft with mature scion soon.

Sweet! Thanks for taking an interest in making it happen and fulfilling the wishes and hopefully orders of many in CA!  Brazil is lucky to have you as one of its greatest foreign born fruit promoters   :P
I really like the idea of shipping many smaller plants like that !
Post some pics when you wrassel those 2 45's into the ground, what a job moving all those big pots to the new spot safely!

Don't worry!!

that is how my rollinia looks this time of year!! (most of them look this way after it gets chilly)
yours will fruit soon!

good luck!

Samu,

there is no minimum order!! sorry i'm not reserving plants, but I will have them available for sure!  They should be ready in another month or two, please email me then!

thanks!

excellent Richard!

I counted about 20 out of 48 that have sprouted so far...the more seedlings that sprout, the cheaper I can make the price....but at most there will only be about 32 seedlings available.

and beware...the price of these little seedlings is going to cause some sticker shock!

(but you get a discount because I O U  :P )

Hi Adam,

Last Autumn I doubted in you Rollinia sylvatica seeds. Now this doubts disappeared - seedlings are true
R. sylvatica, exactly the same as my "Brazilian" seedling.  :)

thanks very much for the update Alex.

I'm glad the seedling is what you wanted it to be!

In this business it can be very difficult to properly identify some of these species...so it is always wise to question the information you may get from a seed seller!

Please save a seedling for me. I grow the yellow cabelluda and would love to put a real glomerata in my collection. I noticed that tradewinds had the real thing for sale, but it's out of stock. I'd still buy it from FF before them though. :)

Tradewinds was selling the glazioviana as glomerata...a common mistake...but honestly nobody has ever grown the real glomerata in the USA until now.

Here is a thread with some new info about the true Myrciaria glomerata.

I did read that thread. That's how I know. I was perusing tradewinds, and saw eugenia tomentosa, and remember the comment Oscar made on the book by mr. Lorenzi. I was shocked to see they knew the rarefruit, they were selling cabelluda for the real glomerata, and they used yellow jaboticaba/cabelluda for myrciria glomerata(incorrect).

Well that aside, I'm going to order from you, and would prefer a friend to them any day. I brought up tradewinds out of how crazy it was they knew of the rare fruit.

Tropicaliste,

thanks that means a lot to me!

(BTW, If all goes will be offering grafted glomerata trees ASAP..maybe later this year, or early next year...believe it or not, the grafted trees will probably be cheaper than the small seedlings!)

the unhealed grafts started pushing (camu camu on vexator)...
now let's see if they survive.

so far I've had pretty good success sending pre-healed plants, but I still try to warn customers there is no guarantee the plant will survive.

I guess this might prove to be a viable way of getting a rare grafted tree for a discount...but it's definitely a gamble.

I feel like I'm selling scratch off tickets...  :P

The unhealed grafted plants arrived in perfect condition for my customer...now let's see if the grafts take.

Ive coached my customer through the process of caring for the unhealed plant....so I'm confident that we have a good chance for succes.

Will post an update soon (maybe 20-30 days)...if the grafts start pushing that will be a great sign.

another round of Annona scions:

minimum order of 2 scions...
have the following avialable for the next 3-4 days...(until next Monday)

very nice sized scions, larger than pencil on average, and at the smallest the size of a chopstick in width...about 5-8 inch in length

Kampong Mauve sugar apple $4 ea (large scions)

Nuathong atemoya $5 ea (large scions)

Fernandez reticulata $5

Kimber red reticulata $5 ea (closer to chopstick sized)

vinho tinto reticulata $5 ea (closer to chopstick sized)

please email your request quickly to assure the highest chance of success for your grafts..these scions were just cut two days ago, I'm storing them in the warmest part of my fridge.  In an effort to offer the most viable scions, I will stop selling them after this Monday or Tuesday.

thanks!
Adam

Hey Adam. I though I would give an update on the last five scions that I have received from you. All five are doing great so far and show no signs of dieing. Here is a picture of the scion that's the furthest along showing the new growth that is coming through the Parafin.

slowly...gaining...confidence...

I've had reports of pre-healed, grafted plants that are pushing out of the tape left and right!

I grafted 4 camu camu onto vexator...shipped 2, kept 2...all 4 are pushing now.

here are a few pics of a plant that was shipped.

if this continues to work, I will try to encourage more people to buy plants this way...but I still need to trial it out....so far so good though.  :)

wow u got lucky with the Rollinias!

i grafted 20 about a week before I grafted yours...and only 3-4 look like they will take...

apparently some of the scions (branches) are destined to die back, and you can't tell until the tree starts growing again...I ended up using scions from branches that were going to be aborted.  Now I've learned to wait until the tree starts flushing out new growth to take scions!

Luckily I chose only the best scions for your trees...i didn't want any chance of failure..

but now you have me curious to see how the dream on pond apple performs!

and also the rollina on glabra...I would have never done this if you didn't ask me to!

my buddy Bob407 was at my nursery today to conduct his regular inspection...he was looking at some of my seedlings when he noticed that the seedlings I had labeled as A. diversifolia, were actually A. purpurea!

so looks like I'm still waiting for my illamas to pop up!  I checked on some of the seeds, they're still viable, but just haven't sprouted yet!!  (I removed half of the shell, so I can see the embryo is still white, and fresh, not rotted!)

any how, I figured I'd post this info...before someone called me out on it again!  :-[ :P

also, I should have an update very soon about shipping to CA, TX AZ and LA!

I think I will be able to ship to AZ, but the cost will be quite high because we are required to get a phyto sanitary certificate (I believe)...I will find out more soon!

thanks!!

I got my nursery stock tested for nematodes today.  If the test results come back negative for quarantined organisms, I will be able to start shipping some really nice plants to CA (and all 50 states, but AZ has to get a phyto i believe).

The test results take about 30 days or less to come back...please say a prayer for me!

no, I believe stock sent to Ca just needs to be certified.

I will let you know what I find out after the test results come back.

(from what I understand...u can just get lucky, and not have any nematodes at all...but some places, and plants are susceptible...I pray the plants I'm growing are resistant!  they don't seem to bothered by any nematodes...so that is a good sign!

please pray for me!

Adam this is the green sapote you sold me. It's loaded! I let it dry out once and lost some leaves but it's happy now.

WOW Val!

that tree is beautiful...

the one I kept (your trees twin) has much less flowers...maybe it will catch up to yours!

make sure not to let it dry out...we are at risk because the trees are rootbound in 25 gal pots...they can easily dry out, and the fruit will drop prematurely!

good luck!!!

I hope so too!  It really is my dream tree. I have wanted one since we first learned about it. Very lucky Adam had one for sale.

Adam, the tree is located where I can keep a close eye on it. I won't let it dry out again. Will those buds bloom or just keep getting bigger? Since I've never seen it before I don't know what to expect.

Val,

the flowers don't get much bigger, but the petals seem to pop out further..and they smell like caramel candy!

I bet....you could spray them with gibberellic acid, and get some fruit to set!

Yes that sapote is politically incorrect lol. I would  be happy with a few fruits. I am just glad it's headed in the right direction. Potted plants make me nervous as I want born with a green thumb.

Wow.....really nice looking tree.  Despite my numerous attempts, I have never gotten a green sapote to this stage, where it was actually flowering (after probably 5 or six attempts from seed and 2 attempts after grafting onto different root stocks..  Nice work.  Green sapote is a really nice fruit, better than mamey in my opinion.

Harry, have you tried directly planting Green Sapote seeds into the ground and then grafting onto it after the seedling was established? I feel that planting seeds into pots and then grafting onto the potted seedlings will not work as well as direct seeding into the ground at its permanent location because the tap root is then undisturbed in the direct seeded plants.

UPDATE:

I got my nursery stock tested for nematodes today.  If the test results come back negative for quarantined organisms, I will be able to start shipping some really nice plants to CA (and all 50 states, but AZ has to get a phyto i believe).

The test results take about 30 days or less to come back...please say a prayer for me!
does this mean you'll be able to ship the larger size plants (3-5gal size)? Keep me updated on the price for shipping to AZ whenever you're able to.

thanks!

not yet! but I should be able to get them later...

my friend has some trees fruiting, they're a bit different than the ones that PIN was selling (his has more lanceolate leaves, PIN's had roundish leaves)...they are tart, but not as tart as the ones I've tasted at F & S and PIN. 

I actually ate a few out of hand!

seems like my echo sweet makes a slightly larger fruit, but this could be due to other factors.

flavor is almost identical to the other types we can find commonly in FL (at least to me)

Just wanted to say thank you, Adam, for the tour so I got to see your nice plants and even pick some fruits to taste, for the bonus plants you were so kind to give me, for all your advice and tips on grafting (and I forgot about loquat scions). We even brought some of your big mosquitoes home, haha, thanks to my husband. BTW, Jabos are delicious. Replanted all my new "babies" and gave them a nice place in a greenhouse. It was nice to meet you.  ;)

Galka,

thanks for coming out to visit the nursery, and supporting me!  I'm glad I had some fruit for you to taste today!

sorry about the Gallinipper Mosquitoes...they are scary!  After the sun goes down, they come out like vampires!

good luck with the small plants you got. 

Let me know if you need scions, or advice with grafting!  The time to start is now!!  You will be able to expand your collection much faster, and cheaper!   sometimes the only way to get the really rare stuff, is to graft it yourself!

Sorry to barge in on the conversation Galka but you may want to consider topping your seedling Loquat very low, leaving perhaps 4 leaves below the cut so that new sprouts will come up that you can graft. If you graft your tree too high up, it will grow several more feet before it flowers and fruits and the fruit will be difficult to protect and harvest.

Adam, can you ship your Jaboticaba trees to California yet? Thanks,
Simon

Simon,

glad you posted this good advice.  Please feel free to barge in anytime!

I'm still waiting on my test results from the USDA...the suspense is nauseating.

Glaka,

If you bring that tree here, I can graft it for you, or show you how to graft it.

there is a way to graft it down low....I would use an offset cleft graft (that's what I call them anyhow...not sure of the actual name, but it's like a cleft, but offset to compensate for the size discrepancy of the rootstock and scion)

if you can't bring it, I can try to walk you through it but it's hard to explain...the graft can be dangerous if you are not careful...and if your knife is dull...the old wood of a loquat can be very hard, and difficult to cut....but it's not as bad as jaboticaba  ;)

Post by: FlyingFoxFruits on April 27, 2015, 10:14:48 PM
hahaha

that's the ticket.

but to put things in perspective...

i have lots of plants that I started this year, that should be free of nematodes...I used sterile soil, and new pots, and kept them off the ground on benches.

but... i have lots of nursery stock that was on the ground before, that has been recently placed on benches, and other stock that is currently on the ground now, so they are really the ones in question.

if they pass the test, I will be able to send some decent sized plants to all 50 states and a very large selection of rare species.

if not, I think the chances are very high, that I will be able to send my smaller seedlings that I started this year....If they're infested with nematodes, then I will be really discouraged...I did everything by the book!  I pray the chances are low like I'm guessing they are.

Are you sure that was USDA that is looking at your set up for nematode certificate? Here that is done by Hawaii state agriculture department. USDA is only for international shipments. State agriculture departments are for shipments interstate.

I'm sure you'll pass Adam. As long as benches are 3 feet of the ground, the ground is paved or gravelled, there are no overhanging limbs over the benches, and you used sterile medium => no way nematodes are going to get in.

phyto is required and must be issued by the state of AZ (I believe).  I will call the FL state department of Ag (not USDA, thanks for correction Oscar  ;) ) to find out tomorrow.

Being that you are in the one state that requires a phyto, I will give you a great price on shipping (cheaper than anyone in the business, I can promise you that), but I don't know how much or how difficult it is to get a phyto!

JF,

I will eventually have to update my list with the department of Ag...

i forgot to include Mangifera sp..

but honestly i don't propagate many of them...Zill's dominates the industry so well, that I refuse to compete with them.

I'm trying to dominate like them, but in the realm of Myrciarias and Eugenias (Annonas, and Garcinias).

the only mangoes I would be offering for sale in CA would be the ones that Zill doesn't produce....such as the varieties from Merritt Island (and others that are not commonly available)....but I have no idea when I will graft mangoes...too many other rare plants to graft!

I  am quite ignorant about these phyto certificates and online buying of seeds. I've read previous threads on the forum. My questions are If I buy seeds/seedlings from you Adam will I need a phyto? (I'm in California).  If so, how does one obtain seeds with the phyto?  And also, is the difference between the certificate and a seed lots permit?

thanks for inquiring about my plants/seeds!

you don't have to worry about any of that! (AZ is the only state that requires a phyto)

it's all up to me to provide the necessary documentation, so you can receive plants from my nursery in FL.

Seeds, and scions (cuttings) do not need any certification.

only plants, (or plant material with roots) need to be certified! 

and all of my nursery stock is free of restricted nematodes, so I can ship a large variety of plants to CA (all 50 states).

(still waiting to talk to the Agent from the department of Ag, to find out exactly what I need to do, to start shipping....there may be some stamps that I need to make? or labels that I need to get from the Department of Ag?)

Adam, congratulations on receiving the nematode certification. Getting a phyto here is easy. Just means an extra trip to the state ag inspection office. That's the hard part for me as it is one hour drive away, so RT 2 hours. I'm guessing the same will be the case for you as far as having to go get the phyto in person, not being able to just use your own nematode stamp.

thanks everyone!

I am excited.

I need to fill out a few more forms (a representative from the Department of Ag will come out tomorrow to bring them for me to sign)

then I have to wait for approval from Gainesville (I suppose there is an office there that issues the forms for shipping)

then I have to get the forms printed (by a company of my choice, they will not let me print them by myself)

the representative from the ag department, said he has about 10 forms that I can use temporarily, but after those run out (lol probably one day) I must wait to for the Gainesville office to issue me more forms, before I can ship!

sorry for all the delays...and sorry i can't hold plants...but I promise they aren't being sold to anyone until I can ship to CA (and all other states) regularly.

quick question about needing a Phyto for AZ. I know they require one when shipping plants to AZ, but I've actually never had to pay for one whenever I buy plants from nurseries outside of the state. I've bought plants from all over and was never charged for it (unless it's all factored into the shipping cost already, but I doubt it since I've never been charged that much for shipping). Do you think these other places just don't bother getting one whenever they ship to AZ? or is there something else going on?

State ag agencies don't usually charge to issue the phyto, but it's up to the nursery whether they charge the customer or not. This will depend on how difficult it is for the nurserymen to get to inspection office and how long the inspection takes.

Raimeiken,

found out today that a phyto would cost over $50 (after you factor in all the little BS charges)  So we estimated it would cost about $70-80 (or more?) by the time you finally got a phyto...and then we'd have to factor in shipping, which I said I would give an excellent deal to people in your state (because of the stupidity of the state laws   ;D )  I'm guessing you'd want to buy as many plants as possible...I could either:

1) fit a bunch of stuff into a large flat rate USPS priority box (I can fit a bunch of one gals, and plugs bare root....or even about 3 three gal plants, but they'd have to be bent)

2) ship via UPS (I can offer about a 50% discount on normal rates!) this way I can ship very large boxes, over 50 lbs in weight, I can fill them with whatever you want (the largest size plants I ship are 3 gal)...but this option is for people who own a nursery, or are plant crazy!

here is the update to my customers who have been patiently waiting...for over a year now  :-[  :D

the final step is for the FL department of Ag. to issue me a certificate...which I must have printed by a company of my choice.  The representative from the state said it would take about 2-4 weeks to get my certificates.  Once I have them printed (which shouldn't take long, it is very easy), I will be able to ship plants.

all of my nursery stock that was on benches got certified!

I think most of the rare stuff will be listed on ebay, I'm trying to figure out how to give forum members a discount, but of course I need to maximize my profits for the super rare stuff.  I do have some gems that I'm going to put up for auction.

so we are about 4-5 weeks away from go time...(lord willing  ;) )

I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord
And I've been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Lord
Can you feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord, oh Lord!

as a scambay shareholder, I would love to see the stock and dividend price go up with the addition of your stuff for sale, adam.  on the other hand, I think don Corleone is right about putting the effort into your own site.  you can probably make more money doing it yourself...albeit with some work up front. maybe do a plant swap + cash to someone on here (especially in florida that can design your website to make it easy for you to manage.

I guess for the right price anything is possible! ($200 per fruit?  :P )

They can be shipped but it's not easy! (They are highly perishable)

It's like the physics project they made us do in school where you have to drop an egg off a building without breaking it!

Maybe if you pick the rollinia fruit totally green and then use futuristic Amazon one hour drone delivery then it will be possible. In the meantime you will have to continue dropping eggs from tall buildings.  ;)
PS yes ofcourse ag rules will make it very difficult, if not impossible, for you to send fruits to California, possibly strictest state in the nation!

I was in the middle of posting this when my computer crapped out. My adapter quit working. I ordered another which arrived Monday, but was the wrong one, and ordered the right one. It finally came today, and I can finish my review. Lol. I know many of you can relate to wanting to throw your electronics off a moving train.  :P

I wanted to brag a bit. I got my order from Adam yesterday(first week of June), and am very happy. He sent me a Sweetheart Lychee, very healthy and large diameter trunk. A Garcinia, nice and green, a M. Phitranta that should be popping out the tape soon, a Rollinia, which has huge leaves, and a M. Glomerata which is already loving it's new home.

I have ordered many plants from him in the past, and plan to many times again in the future. Thanks Adam. :)

shipped on Monday from florida. arrives Wednesday in Hawaii.  Fast!   But I'll admit the last leg from West Coast across the Pacific can be dodgy if the connection isn't made.  But Adam's stuff is always packed up REALLy nicely.

definitely.  I think there's a timing issue. if adam ships out past a certain time, certain trucks/vans won't get to certain points in the supply chain in time.  idk how it works, but it amazes me that despite the flack USPS gets for service, they are no matter what a workhorse that gets stuff out quick and for cheap.  $5~!

Enjoy it while it lasts. USPS is losing a couple billion dollars quartely. Last quarter they did "good"-- they only lost 1.5 billion dollars. This has been going on for years. How long can the feds continue to subsidize them? USPS is supposedly independent from federal government and operating without tax revenue, but obviously this is not true or they would have been bankrupt a long time ago.

I don't know how it works either because it took a day longer and about 3,000 less miles traveled to reach West Coast. The timing was good for your package. 2 day priority showed up at the end of day 4 for me.

You got it backwards. USPS uses FedEx and UPS planes. There are no USPS planes.
Only reason you got your package in 2 days is because you live on Oahu. All flights arrive there first. All outer islands you can add another day for delivery. Sometimes even express mail doesn't make it here in 2 days.

now I have an extremely limited amount of Myrciaria glomerata seedlings, they are still small in plugs about 3-6inch tall ($20-25 ea depending on size) shipping is $5 via priority mail.

I was planning on selling them for at least $30 ea, upwards of $40 ea, but they turned out to be more difficult to grow than M. glazioviana.  They are tough as nails being that they've survived over 105F in my greenhouse, but they have been growing slow, and have needed to be drenched with chelated Fe.

If they were looking perfectly healthy and if they were easy to grow, I'd sell them for much more (being that I paid quite a bit of money per seed!!)

but now I'm realizing, this one is strictly for collectors.

the plants I have are healthy for sure, but could be a little greener.  I just hit them with chelated Fe, so they should really perk up when they are put into a one gal pot with some good soil.

sorry there is a limit of one plant per person, this is a new introduction into the USA, so I'd like as many people to get a chance to grow it as possible.

(I will post recent pics later)

YES!  that's great news!

That was the most intense cocktail tree I've ever sold!

get ready to do a bunch of pruning, and balancing!  Don't be afraid to prune heavy if needed!

some scions might get pruned so heavily they'll skip a year, but with 4 varieties, you should have consistent fruit production.

good luck!  keep me posted!

(BTW you can safely remove all the grafting tape from the tree!  I left it on for added stability...you can leave the tape that's thinly wrapped around the scion to degrade naturally, but the tape around the graft union must be removed..it's wound up so tight it can girdle the tree)

Mohd,

I am hoping to have some seeds within the next 60 days!

Big Red Sugar apple
Na Dai Sugar apple

Lisa atemoya
Phet Pack Chong atemoya
Geffner atemoya
Dream atemoya

and possibly a few others...

keep in mind Atemoya seeds are quite variable, and sugar apple seeds are more true, but can be variable depending on type (and Na dai, seems to be virtually true to seed)

might have some reticulata seeds too...

and biriba seeds....

I have shippable seedlings of Na Dai ($5-7 ea), and Rollinia deliciosa ($5-8ea), the price is depending on quantity.

have lots of other stuff I need to list...

lol, i know some people who have this problem..they talk about tropical fruits with the average Joe, like they're going to give a damn...I'm guilty of being one of these people, and I've seen my friends do it too! (Bob407 I'm talking to you  :P )

I love people like this, because they are out there spreading the good word.

I have some annona scions i could sell now (but my grafting success rate for most of the annonas is lower this time of year, so I typically stop offering scions...and the trees don't seem to enjoy being pruned heavily when they are holding fruits, it burns them when you expose them to extra sunlight), but honestly late January seems to be the time to request scions, February is prime, and March tapers off, into April.

I'm usually sold out of the best stuff by March, but depends on what you want, there are so many random scions I can get, but I need to find time to gather them (some are here, some are about 30min-1hr away)

I don't know if you know how,(or anyone else knows?),

but I was trying to combine shipping, so a buyer could get multiple trees without having to pay for additional shipping?

I could fit an additional 5 trees per box, and ship about 6 trees for $5 total!  but each tree would cost $7.

so for instance, the grand total would be $47 (6x$7=$42 seedlings + $5 shipping)

What you do is you state the initial shipping fee, then you say "$1.00 for each additional tree"(or whatever you charge) and "combined shipping", then "Request an invoice, once auction is over". If the buyer does not request the updated total, then you should not for them. I find you wind up paying out of your own pocket when you take it upon yourself. It's up to the buyer to make the effort to request the updated invoice.

I have tissue cultured Red Jaboticabas for sale, they cost about $5-$8 ea, depending on how many you purchase!  Prices are subject to change.

they are still small, approx 6 inch tall, but healthy and ready to ship!

sorry I have not tried to grow tissue cultured plants out to fruition, but so far they are comparable to seedlings...just a little slower during the initial phase of juvenility, which they are already past.

the only thing I don't have is a conversion kit for my paintball gun, so I can use the fruit as ammo!

I could give out free samples to the squirrels!  even when they are way up in a tree! or running across a fence!

Adam, if you do tissue culture of a fruiting Grimal or Coronata, I'd be interested in a few.

Adam, if you do tissue culture of a fruiting Grimal or Coronata, I'd be interested in a few.

the mature explant isn't going to help increase precocity on TC'd plants.

I do have lots of small Grimal seedlings for sale, coronata should be coming later.

personally for increased precocity, I think a grafted plant is the way to go! (or a large seedling of course)

and don't forget some varieties fruit earlier than others!

Coronata 15-20yr

Jaboticaba de Cabinho (trunciflora) 15-20yr

Paulista 10-15yr (I don't have much experience, but seems to take longer than Sabara for sure!)

Sabara 7-10yr

Grimal is precocious 5-7yrs

white is precocious 4-7yr

yellow is precocious 3-4yr

Red is one of the most precocious 2.5-5yr

hello to all,

I have some red fleshed illama seeds for $2 ea (not sure what variety exactly, but fruits are delicious)

I also have some Phet Pack Chong atemoya seeds now for 50 cents each, must order at least 10 seeds.

I use them for rootstocks, (for atemoya, and sugar apple mainly), they could be planted for experimental purposes, there is a chance you can get a nice fruiting tree, but they are not considered true to type.

I will post when more Annona seeds are available, it should be in the next 30-60 days.

u got it my friend!  I have a nice 3 gal Annona montana I will give you a good deal on!  I'll save the smaller ones for shipping!!

the thai dwarf is nice fruit!  reminds me of Tice!!  but a smaller tree..and seems to fruit more than once per year (at least so far for me it has made some off season fruits)

easy to propagate via cuttings...i got my original tree from Excalibur (thanks Sheehan for recommending it)

Thanks for inquiring,

I'm hoping to get scions again this winter from JF, i couldn't get any to take this season.

As for the Peruvian red from Wayne, I have a tree that's flowering size,but I'm waiting tor it to fruit next year before I graft any...I  ant to test the quality, because it's a seedling tree.

I have lots of sugar Apple seedlings to use a rootstock for next year, I wanna make about 40-50 big red.

hello to all who have requested Myrciaria coronata var. Restinga, seedlings.

I finally have some ready to ship (in about a week)

the price will vary depending on the size of the plant, the price range will be about $20-50, with the smallest plants being about 10 inch tall, and the largest being about 2ft tall.

most are in the $30 range, being a little taller than 1ft.

I alsol have a limited amount of Myrciaria jaboticaba var. Caipirinha (a dwarfish variety, that has extremely sweet fruits, closely related to Sabara, but leaves are smaller, so are fruits...an excellent choice for container growing and bonsai...very rare)...they will cost about $20-30 depending on size, the size range is about 8-12 inch tall.

Not a good candidate for container growing really...the tree seems to need a 25 gal pot at least...and will require a 100 gal before you know it (maybe in as little as 8 yr with proper care)


But with this said, I have one I'm trying to keep in a pot...it's about 3yr old from grafting (on illama rootstock), and it's in a 25gal, already asking to go into a 50gal, but I'm going to keep it rootbound and as small as possible.

Sounds like a pretty vigorous tree. I might have room for one in ground I planted two gefners. Is Genova red the best type?

Dont mean to hijack Adam's thread but he is correct, not a good long term candidate for a pot.  Will require a large pot sooner than later.

No variety is productive on its own.  Will require hand pollination for any chance at good production.   As far as taste, never met an ilama that wasn't good.

I have only tasted a few types, one was Guillermo, the other was a seedling...they were both red types, and excellent.

I hear there is lots of variation, so it can be a good idea to get a grafted tree, or at least seeds from a tree that is known to be of good quality.

Hi Adam, could you tell me what Myrciaria/Plinias you have that you can ship to SoCal? I'm psyched right now since I have Sabara, Red, and Yellow fruiting for the first time...well. technically 2nd for Sabara since the first was in July. Thanks, Chris

Some of the rare varieties are small (about 4-6inch in plugs, but shippable), the largest plants are about 3ft tall (mostly red jabos and yellow jabos), and there are plenty of midsized plants about 1ft tall (vexator, coronata, Cambuca and others )

How would you describe the Myrciaria sp. (Escarlate)

I have never tasted it, but have heard its much  like the red jaboticaba , but reportedly better tasting, and more precocious (fruiting in 3yrs from seed typically)

But if I'm not mistaken, it's the red jabo, back crossed to M. aureana.

So far the only negative attribute I can think of, is the fact that escarlate is much more sensitive to city water (or high pH) than the Red jabo.

As far as the appearance goes, it looks just like the red, but has larger and longer leaves.

I have to make sure they are still all available, but last time I checked I had these in plugs about 8-12inch tall:

Annona reticulata $8
A. glabra (few left $8, special type that's more compatible as rootstock)
A. squamosa (na dai) $8
A. montana $8
A. purpurea $12 (larger plants in one gal)
A. salzmannii $20 (still very small, very rare)

Meiogyne cylindrocarpa $5 (small, but 1yr old and shippable )
Rollinia deliciosa $10 (only a few left, over 1ft easy)

For Garcinia I'm low on inventory, but now I have:
G. intermedia $8, for small plant approx 6-8in
G. aristata $25 (old plants slow growing approx 12inch tall, 2 left) also have smaller ones for $8

(More garcinias coming soon...G. gardneriana, G. prainiana, G. xanthochymus, and more)

I'll wait for G. prainiana and how much would some blue jabo and lemon drop mangosteen fruits be?

I'm not sure if the blue jabo is shippable (in my experience it's one of the most perishable varieties, and quickly ferments)

Although I have never shipped the lemon drop mangosteens, I assume they would be easy to ship...would cost about $2 per fruit (based on seed price)...but if someone orders a box of red jabo fruits and requests a lemon drop mangosteen, I can throw some in for free...(also muntingia fruits, and other small stuff I might have around)

For customers that come to visit the nursery, I have small amounts of fruit to taste for free.

have lots of small Grimals ($5 for the smallest about 4-5 inch tall, leaves look yellow, so they are discounted, but they all seem to do this, they are healthy for sure)  the next size up is about 7-9 inch tall $15 ea, deep dark green leaves, the next size up is approx 12 inch, those cost $25 ea, I have about 4 left of the largest size)

After bugging you about it a few times, you said you had 1 plant left and you would give it to me if I took care of it.  Then life happened, my plants were fairly neglected for a few months, but lo and behold, the other day I found it   ;)

I've started to realize the Annonas are tricky to keep up with...I suppose it has to do with the short window of opportunity for grafting.

this year I'm focusing mainly on the rare stuff, Genova red illama, and annona salzmannii are high on the list...also Big Red Sugar apple...(considering making some A. scleroderma)

I don't have many cherimoya or atemoya rootstocks lined up...so I will have very few grafted atemoya trees this year.

It maybe another 2yrs before I graft a considerable amount of atemoyas.

too many species to graft!
Title: Re: Flying Fox Fruits Nursery

Adam,
I got your email, just responded.

Concerning the annonas. I could plant all the cherimoya seeds i get this year in those little plugs. Hopefully they will be ready to graft by 2017.
Next time I come up to Orlando I can drop them off, don't know how much that would help though.

thanks for the kind offer!

but I think there is a type of cherimoya that is best for FL...I have problems with delayed incompatibility, (or sudden death), when I use cherimoya for grafting atemoyas and sugar apples...and especially illamas.

I have been planning to graft onto atemoya seedlings (for atemoyas)...I think the dream might make a great rootstock, but have yet to test this out.

have you guys tasted this fruit? Is it similar to the other annonas in taste? I'm working on getting an ilama too, haha.. I think that is a big difference in flavor.. I'm not sure of this one though.. I looked at the pictures and they look like the regular annonas (cherimoya/atemoya) and might not have a taste difference like rollinia or ilama..

The jabo leave's are started to turn a red/brown color. I assume its from the chlorine/chloramines in the water.
Can you recommend an inline water filter?

The jabo leave's are started to turn a red/brown color. I assume its from the chlorine/chloramines in the water.
Can you recommend an inline water filter?

Mine were doing the same thing. So I finally installed inline filters. This was something that I had been meaning to do for awhile but I finally took the time over the Holiday break last month. I had to do a little excavation to get access to my irrigation lines, which was the biggest part of the project for me.

I opted for the BodyMindSoil (BMS) filter which reduces chlorines and chloramines by a huge amount (95-99% IIRC) and they also have a hard water filter media which is also what I opted for. Here is what I did:

I am using one on my garden hose, two on my drip irrigation system

On my garden hose end I have:
- quick disconnect
- Hose to NPT adapter
- 3 GPM NPT flow regulator
- NPT to Hose adapter
- BMS filter
- Garden shower sprayer

I do the quick disconnect so that it is easy to take the filter/sprayer assembly off the end of the hose when I am done using it. And I have the filter on the hose end so that I am holding it so it is not ever 'hanging' to avoid stress fracturing

On my irrigation lines (2 zones) I have:
- 1/2" line in ground (from supply)
- 1/2" to 3/4" adapter, NPT threaded end
- NPT to Hose adapter
- short hose length for flexible joint / stress relief into the filter
- BMS filter
- short hose length for flexible joint / stress relief from the filter
- NPT to Hose adapter
- 1/2" to 3/4" adapter, NPT threaded end
- 1/2" line in ground (to gardens / trees)

I excavated around my lines and buried an irrigation control valve box (from Lowes) with side walls and a removeable lid so that I can have access to the filters to replace the filter media when I need to.

Post by: starch on January 28, 2016, 10:31:42 AM
And to finish the story: Since I did this my Sabara stopped losing leaves, has greened up tremendously on the new growth and there are swelling buds all over the tree (which is still very small at this point).

Not an expert but that may be normal, as my jabos have some old leaves that haven't yet dropped, and they don't look good at all.  I do have lots of areas of new growth though since we have gotten so much rain this fall/winter.

It's normal for the leaves to turn red brown during winter!  Most of these species are semi deciduous...the leaves wil fall off when the spring rains come!

Ok, I was starting to get worried. I guess its still a good idea to get a chlorine filter anyways.

I don't usually offer bananas, but I bought some to resell today...a variety from Stokes Tropicals called "Seminole"

http://stokestropicals.plants.com/Musa-sp-Seminole-P582.aspx (http://stokestropicals.plants.com/Musa-sp-Seminole-P582.aspx)

I haven't researched it much yet, but i liked the story i heard about it from my friend (which may not be totally accurate)...had something to do with Seminole indians growing it at one point or another, i suppose after it had been introduced to FL...and also hear it was cold tolerant, and quick fruiter.

I only have about 8 plants, in small plugs gotta get $10 ea...shipping is $6 for USPS priority

seems like more of a multi-purpose variety--good for cooking and probably out of hand when good and ripe.  Speaking of guinea pigs, who wants to buy the pineapple banana (alleged sport of rajapuri) and report back?  I am intrigued, but I just don't like spending good $ on bananas.  If anyone ever gets pups of this, PM me and I will trial it at my job.

Is there a Florida source for pineapple banana?   I lost a couple other cultivars to wind recently, have room to try something new.

sounds like we are back to old "if it were worthwhile, it would be mass-propagated by now" argument.  I have no way of knowing if this banana is any good, but I have heard good things about JF&E.  Is it impossible to think that a nursery has a good variety that it has discovered/been introduced to and it is worthwhile, but not propagated by others (Excalibur Red, for example)?  This comes up whenever Borneo Red jakfruit is mentioned.  Whatever the reasons are that it isn't widely propagated, the BR I had at jackfruit tasting (side by side) was indeed, quite good.  Rob is probably correct about the pineapple banana, but that doesn't mean we can't keep scouring for more varieties of fruit trees.  Also doesn't mean we can't convince someone to give it a go and report back  ;)

Thats  :)
 I was leading toward that idea. But don't have a gun, I'll have to get  some kids to go and catch them for me,
Or yes and they eat them If they were at home my landlords dog would catch them and eat them for me. When she is loose she eats 1-2 a day.

The cambium layer on the scions looked more brown then green. Maybe light brown.
I removed the bottom inch to get to fresher piece, they are both grafted onto a healthy potted gefner now. Hopefully it works out.
I forgot to take a pic though

now i just have makok, and a variegated sap.

i have the best luck doing a cleft, and bagging the plant (leaving foliage intact).

i think now is best time of year to graft sap.

Title: Re: Flying Fox Fruits Nursery
Post by: FlyingFoxFruits on March 22, 2016, 01:47:04 PM
decided to scratch this idea
too much work
I'm working on a system to take reservations for plants.

basically here's how it will work:

- you must be a customer who has purchased plants from me before, on at least two occasions (seeds and scions do not count).

- I will post a list of what's available, and members can request a reservation

- Only one plant per customer, unless otherwise stated

- A small discount is given to members who come to pick up plants locally

- there is no guarantee you will get the plant you've requested.  In some cases, this is because some have been recently grafted, and are not fully healed.

there are still some details I need to figure out, but I'm trying to get the system set up soon.  There should be some rare stuff available around the 2nd week of April, and I will slowly trickle out new items as the season progresses.

I will post one more update, once the rules and details of the plant reserving system have been decided.

one of a kind jabuticabeira for sale:

on the left we have Plinia coronata var. Restinga, and on the right we have, Plinia phitrantha var. Otto Anderson.

both varieties are relatively precocious, so I'm hoping it turns out to be a good match.

The tree is still at least 5yr away from fruiting.

$65 for local pick up, or $75 +$14 if you make me ship

thanks John!

I have an even crazier cocktail tree in a 15 gal...

remember the one tree I grafted all the scions onto, that was in the ground, in the shade, underneath an oak canopy?

I grafted on phitrantha (Otto Anderson) 2 scions, truncilfora (one big old scion), aureana (2 scions), Grimal (3-4 large scions)....and I think that's all...unless I put a red jabo on there and don't remember?

I wanna take it to the sale in Manatee county so I can sell it...but i also don't want to transport the tree..it's such a liability...moving it around...you can easily snap off a scion, and decrease the value...

no way I'm shipping the tree...the pot weighs like 60 lbs!  I dug up a bunch of sand when I dug up the tree....haha...at least it won't blow over in the wind...the native sandy soil at my house is actually really good for most of the Plinia species....thank goodness!!  I couldn't handle that South FL soil!  :D

Title: Re: Flying Fox Fruits Nursery
Post by: FlyingFoxFruits on April 05, 2016, 01:10:51 AM
local pick up only...

firm price...$225  (if I end up taking it to the sale in Manatee, I will ask about $275)

and I'm willing to buy the tree back from you in two years for $300, if you keep it healthy, and properly pruned!  ;D

and I'm willing to graft on another scion for you when you come to pick it up...(i got paulista, and coronata var restinga, or red jaboticaba we can add to the tree)

BUT...one thing I'm not willing to do, is hold the tree (for more than a couple weeks)...it's just too much of a liability...every time I walk by to check on the tree, it's like walking on eggshells.


Well Done!

that's totally understandable. I hope everything goes well for you.

I know the tree you are talking about and it's a pretty spectacular specimen! I never realized how excited people were for cocktail jabos. Would you consider taking special orders for custom cocktail trees in the future?

Hey Adam, I also emailed you a day or two ago.  I'm wanting to order several plants mentioned in your sale post plus one more if you have any for sale.  I know your busy and it takes some time to get back to all the emails, any of the plants mentioned sold out yet or nearly?

I decided to scratch this idea.

It's more work than it's worth...the plants will be sold regardless, whether they are reserved or not, and it's just more work for me to reserve them.

I'm working on a system to take reservations for plants.

basically here's how it will work:

- you must be a customer who has purchased plants from me before, on at least two occasions (seeds and scions do not count).

- I will post a list of what's available, and members can request a reservation

- Only one plant per customer, unless otherwise stated

- A small discount is given to members who come to pick up plants locally

- there is no guarantee you will get the plant you've requested.  In some cases, this is because some have been recently grafted, and are not fully healed.

there are still some details I need to figure out, but I'm trying to get the system set up soon.  There should be some rare stuff available around the 2nd week of April, and I will slowly trickle out new items as the season progresses.

I will post one more update, once the rules and details of the plant reserving system have been decided.

I think it's time to train your squirrel to help you on order fulfillment.  It's a good problem to be in high demand, but you shouldn't stress out.  Maybe can find interns or workers that take pay in exotic plants and fruits?  Good luck as you sort out the sales/fulfillment challenges.

every year, there will be something new...

slowly the nursery will evolve...eventually I will be selling/shipping more rare fruits

taking less small orders...

answering less questions...

narrowing the scope of the plants that I specialize in, and propagate...

and selecting the best varieties thereof.

thanks everyone, the doctors advised me to euthanize the dog, and said that surgery would have been unsuccessful...being that the tumor was so advanced, and on his femur, close to the hip.

it was a horrible outcome...but i'm glad it's over...It has been stressing me out for at least 4 months...progressively getting harder to deal with, up until 8am this morning, when he passed away in my arms  :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(

will be back to work soon...have lots of emails to answer, and requests to fill...

Ditto all the sentiments here.  :'(  Can relate, had to put down our sweet (rescue) girl, Freeway, due to a tumor on her colon. Cried for days.

A new friend is in order, all in due time, and many are out there in shelters or roaming the streets waiting to love and be loved. Seems that rescue dogs make the best friends - they appreciate that warm bed, a meal and playing ball or going for walks.  Took me 2 years to get over the last loss, didn't want the pain of another loss, but here's a very happy heeler we saved that was scheduled to be put down because she chased a farm lady's chickens.  :(

Patty's happy hour:

I think he's just too busy and with the passing of his family. He got to dig himself out of a big hole to get on top of his stuff.  Like someone said, your patience will be rewarded.  A while back he alluded to him possibly ceasing to take small orders.  I can imagine how long it takes to process orders that require 4 seeds this, 2 cuttings, and 1 seedling or whatever.  But glad to hear he has help.  Haven't got word back from him either, but it gives me time to at least prep for other things that need attention!

If biz is that good it might be time to sub some or all of this out.

I think most have a lot of patience it's availability that's the issue. I personally have no qualms doing biz with someone who has the stock I want and whom I  can trust.

As of late, sleep is a luxury I can not afford...especially now that Rex, (aka, "Manservant Hecubus") is part of my family.  His crate is like that little box from the movie HellRaiser...open it up, and out comes a demon!  He's the love of my life, but he's at the stage in his life, where he thinks it's ok to bite my face...he's got puppy breath, and sharp puppy teeth...but he's a fast learner and a joy to have.  ;D

can anyone guess what breed his parents were?  (he is an unusual mix, and people usually laugh when they find out...please don't guess if you already know!)

Me either. I was sure it was Miniature Pinsher due to how the ears were standing up in the
3rd of the original photos. Then I went back to look and noticed that they weren't standing
up; he was lying flat on his back. Lol.

Way to go Adam...he's a cutie and nothing is more fun than a puppy (at least nothing legal).  ;)

Title: Re: Flying Fox Fruits Nursery
Post by: FlyingFoxFruits on June 30, 2016, 03:10:49 PM
For local pick up only (I will not ship anywhere)

a one of a kind, cocktail jaboticaba in 15 gal pot, with 4 varieties (5 including the rootstock, which is capable of producing fruit eventually) $250

Grimal (mature scion)
trunciflora (close to mature scion)
aureana (close to mature scion)
phitrantha "Otto Anderson" (close to mature scion)
on a 10yr old Sabara rootstock (that was a bonsai tree at one time)

the tree will be a long project, that requires lots of maintenance, (in the form of pruning).  These trees are a bit of an experiment, but so far the results have been great.  I have several of them growing and fruiting, but some of the scions need to be pruned heavily, and some fruit much sooner, and more often than others.

please email for more info (remember I disabled the forum's PM system!  ;D )...I will try to post a picture by tonight.

Hi Adam! Just to inform, that the package with the seeds of E. itaguahiensis, has arrived 2 days ago.
It was delayed by an almost 2 week stop at the Lisbon customs, and I don't know why, because it always passes trough customs only in Funchal, but this time they stoped it there and it took ages to continue it's way... Anyway, everything was still in good shape!
Thank you very much, for the extra seeds!

Here is a pic of the tree!!  it's a beauty, but the soil is heavy as concrete...and it's hard to transport, because you can easily break off a graft if you aren't careful... a van would be perfect...but a truck can work too...

Adam, do you have any specific instructions for growing E. itaguahiensis from seed and the care after it sprouts? Is it like Grumixama, because I have a somewhat healthy tree that I have had now for 2 years, got it from Plantogram at already about 2.5-3 years old, so it's about 4 or 5 years old at over 6ft tall, and it stays healthy inside during the harsh Michigan winters. It is very sparsely leafed but the  the branches that have leaves are healthy and growing, still no flowers tho.

just like grumixama in my experience, but give them lots of sun after they get over 1ft tall, or they will get leggy...and take longer to fruit.

I think they do ship trees, but he says it will be quite expensive for shipping and all of the plants are bare rooted. "For those of you who want to mail-order, I urge you to take special care of your new trees, as bare-rooting and shipping is stressful for them (some are more sensitive than others). I mainly offer this service in case some trees are unavailable locally. If you want to place an order, please contact me by e-mail (sadhu@coqui.net) before, so that I can confirm the availability and size of the trees. All trees are sent bare rooted, the roots are treated against nematodes and wrapped in a humid, sterile medium."

Hey Adam,

I wanted to get your opinion: What are the most heat tolerant / sun tolerant Eugenias and Garcinias?

Thanks man!
I know I'm not Adam, but I would say that the most heat/sun tolerant Eugenias are: Dune Myrtle (E. capensis), Cedar Bay cherry (E. reinwardtiana), Pitanga-peba (E. pitanga), Mattos cherry (E. mattosii), Cerrado cherry (E. calycina), Pitanga-tuba (E. selloi) & Suriname cherry (E. uniflora).

Don't know much about Garcinia, but I imagine Luc's/Mexican garcinia would be up there, with the added advantage of cold tolerance.

Hey Adam,

I wanted to get your opinion: What are the most heat tolerant / sun tolerant Eugenias and Garcinias?

Thanks man!

seem like pitangatuba, cedar bay cherry, and pitanga are most heat tolerant...(even pitomba and cherry of rio are impressive)....Grumixama, and Dwarf Grumixama are impressive as well...easily withstanding temps above 100F...don't forget E. stipitata... there are really too many to mention...

as for garcinias, based on my limited experience...G. aristata, G. intermedia, G. livingstonei, G. garnderiana, and luc garcinia are a few that handle heat and sun well when they are still relatively small...i'm sure there are many many more.

small yellow jabos available soon...maybe in 45 days?

as for red jabo fruit, I've been saving most for seed...maybe I will offer fruit again soon...but i have been battling rats in the greenhouse, which seem to consume about 20% of my red jabo fruit...luckily they don't harm the seeds.

I still have this crazy cocktail jaboticaba for local pick up $250...I got a feeling it's gonna sell soon!  ;D

(https://s15.postimg.cc/w7l1ow2zr/IMG_1307.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/image/w7l1ow2zr/)

(https://s15.postimg.cc/dhxnlvzmv/IMG_1310.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/image/dhxnlvzmv/)

For local pick up only (I will not ship anywhere)

a one of a kind, cocktail jaboticaba in 15 gal pot, with 4 varieties (5 including the rootstock, which is capable of producing fruit eventually) $250

Grimal (mature scion)
trunciflora (close to mature scion)
aureana (close to mature scion)
phitrantha "Otto Anderson" (close to mature scion)
on a 10yr old Sabara rootstock (that was a bonsai tree at one time)

the tree will be a long project, that requires lots of maintenance, (in the form of pruning).  These trees are a bit of an experiment, but so far the results have been great.  I have several of them growing and fruiting, but some of the scions need to be pruned heavily, and some fruit much sooner, and more often than others.

please email for more info (remember I disabled the forum's PM system!  ;D )...I will try to post a picture by tonight.

Here is a pic of the tree!!  it's a beauty, but the soil is heavy as concrete...and it's hard to transport, because you can easily break off a graft if you aren't careful... a van would be perfect...but a truck can work too...

thanks Steve...(I wish I could ship the tree, it would have sold a long time ago...but it's so heavy and fragile...impossible to ship without breaking off some grafts...I think the rootball seriously weighs about 75lb)

they are easy enough to graft, so it would be cheaper to get a nice 3 gal sabara, and graft your own!

I sell Plinia/Myrciaria scions pretty much year round.

every once in a while, i get some nice fan mail...

people just don't realize I can't handle every order, and respond to every email.

some requests end up being too much trouble to fill, so I pick the course that presents the least resistance, and most profit.  (remember, I have no employees, and this is my full-time profession)

I may not respond to every email, and I may even respond, then get sidetracked and forget to continue correspondence....

BUT once I take someone's money (receive payment), I am always prompt with correspondence....I never take someone's money, or send them an invoice, and then leave them in the dark.


here is an example of an angry customer, I started a correspondence for a small order of Plinia seeds, and it fell by the wayside...

"I thought u were more professionnal…

Keep ur seeds and I will keep my money …

I will just go on forums to give my advise on flying fox fruit seriousness…

I just asked for payment… never seen it before…

I will try an other company for my jaboticaba’s rare seeds."

People also forget how much time it takes to clean and pack seeds well then theres getting to the post office. And theres still all the plants to care for....
You wont die if you have to wait for seeds and you can always try again guys! Adams seeds are definitly woth the patience:) Or you can go buy badly packed rotten seeds form a smooth talking money grabber.
For me its correspondence after money changes hands that counts.

I forgot my vow to never join FB!! thanks for the reminder Jonah!  :P

here is why i finally broke down and joined...

I figured there is a whole crowd of users on FB, who don't engage in the TFF, so I'm infiltrating the enemy platform, to push my tropical fruit agenda on the world, via any means necessary  :P.  I have been steadily trying to spread the word about TFF....which is so much better in many regards when compared to FB (which is like walmart...where u can't talk to the owners, and they consolidate all the ma and pa businesses into one big box store)...TFF is like a ma and pa store to me...the admins/mods are real people, not a faceless corp.

The only thing I like about FB, is I can post all sorts of off topic stuff that isn't allowed here....but the fact that off topic stuff isn't allowed here, is why I love the tropical fruit forum.


Zuckerberg can suck my fingersop!  >:(

I wish people could give seed sellers a break! There are so few of them and a one man business in demand simply cant respond to all request and I think logically larger orders will take priority.
Once you have paid and ordered then maybe you can complain but before I think its just that your order doesnt take priority. If he is too busy to respond to you then obviosly the way the business is being run is working very well  ;)

 FFF  is a one-man show whom has been working for a long time now to help introduce these cultivars to all. he has a passion for sharing the knowledge and as much seed and scion as he can spare. i figured as soon as he was shipping plants I should buy what i wanted because the demand for buying these from the 1 person that offers them would soon out weigh the amount of time in the day. As my plant collection and various plantings have increased with time, so has the time necessary to make everything thrive. You've got to find balance in everything . Theres only so much time in the day and sometimes folks can get weeded out or slip through the cracks for various reasons of entitlement, unrealistic expectations and otherwise.

Due to high demand, and an email backlog, longer than the taproot of a Junglesop, I've been selling most of my rare stuff on ebay.

Please check out some of the links...some really rare stuff gets sold on there, but the auctions don't usually last too long 24-72hr (I try to list a few items twice a week, so the auctions end on Wed and Sun @ about 8pm PST)....and stuff sells out super fast.

https://www.ebay.com/usr/flyingfoxfruits (https://www.ebay.com/usr/flyingfoxfruits)

I'm not going to apologize for my inability to respond to every inquiry, I'm only going to remind you, these are rare plants, and there is only one employee at Flying Fox Fruits.

I may not respond to every inquiry, but I never accept someone's money and cut the lines of communication...If I engage a customer in a transaction, I keep in contact until I know they are satisfied.

Stay tuned, some rare and one of a kind plants will be released soon...

 ;D

What's the flavor of the Thai Dwarf Mulberry like?
Title: Re: Flying Fox Fruits Nursery
Post by: FlyingFoxFruits on August 17, 2018, 04:03:56 PM
What's the flavor of the Thai Dwarf Mulberry like?

u can eat them a bit early, and they are tart, with a snap, crispy almost like baby corn!  You can pick them without them staining your hands, unlike most other varieties I have, that are softer fleshed, and leak juice on your fingers.

then u can eat them fully ripe, when they are quite sweet, but also have a touch of tart.

the main attraction for this variety IMO is the dwarf size, and incredible productivity, and large size of fruits!  They are great for making pies, or using in cooking, but also very good for eating fresh. 

If you are looking for an all sweet mulberry, with no tartness at all, then this one is not for you.
Title: Re: Flying Fox Fruits Nursery
Post by: Cookie Monster on August 17, 2018, 04:38:57 PM
OK. I like sweet + tart, but the Boss likes hers pure sweet. If it tastes anything like the tice (not sure if you're had that one), then I'd be down. I love Tice mullbary, but the tree is gargantuan.

Is that the same as pakistani black with the long fruits? I actually just bought one of those a few days ago. Really delicious fruit.

Similar but there is one that ripens to a (ruby) reddish color and does not go to fully "black"

Thanks Roblack!!!

I give them full sun, and once your tree gets established, maybe try pruning it, or just punch the tips of the branches, and tie them down, to encourage lateral buds to start sprouting, and it should induce fruition, again and again....but you have to keep cutting off old wood, to encourage new wood to grow...by the end of the season, the fruit quality is not as good as spring, but it's still worth eating.

I got my tree to fruit about 5-6 times easy in one season, and it's easy to root cuttings.

People in America have a great gesture!
From the initial price of USD 0.1, they have now been up to over USD 500 in one day! and two days to the end. This is a great achievement for this unique plant slightly larger than a large foot. Im very impressed! Do you think Adam that it will "break" 1000 USD?

I do not know how others are reading but I feel encouraged to grow similar plants. And it's not only about money, but also an interestingly illustrated physiognomy of a mother's tree, which is very interesting :) On the other hand, with the eyes of my imagination, I see that in a moment 1/3 of the crew of this forum will starting to cultivate plinia ;)

You and hundreds of others are interested in those, but I would be very surprised if you're able to get scions like those shipped to germany unless you're volunteering to pay a truly excessive premium for it.

Hello everyone,

I just wanted to drop in and say I love you.

And I wish I had the energy to respond to every email inquiry, but I don't.

I choose to run a small operation by myself with no employees for now, and want to produce as many trees as I can.   I have been doing this full time for a while now, 110% dedicated to Plinias and rare fruit trees...and I have no intentions of slowing down.

For now, I will be selling on ebay, mostly through the auction process (I will post a link to my ebay store below).

Soon i hope to get my website revamped, and also maybe hire a friend to field my email inquiries, and help ship.

In the meantime, there seems to be some amazing new sources for grafted Plinias popping up to help satisfy demand.  Most of them are in FL, TX, and CA, and are people I've known for years, or personally have met, and i think highly of them all...be sure to check out some other nurseries.  (if you are grafting Plinias -or rare fruit-, and have supported my nursery in the past, go ahead a post a shout out to me here, so people can find you, and your products.  I will allow you to post once to get your name out to my customers).

Once again, i just wanted to drop in, and express my love for everyone who has been so excited and supportive over the years....i can't think of any other hobby/profession/past time, that has the capability of bringing so many people together, from so far around the world, and of so many languages/cultures, and age groups.  I'm so thankful to know you all, and to have the opportunity to share ideas, and food with you. 

I don't think of rare fruit growing as a hobby, or even a profession, it's more a way of living, and i think more people every day are seeing the value in growing their own food, and keeping fruit trees, which are in a sense, appreciating assets.

I'm really excited to share some more ideas, and rare plants with you soon.  I have many new varieties I've selected that are being evaluated, and slated for release!! 

Yours truly,


Prince of Plinia

Grafted Plinia sp. "Anomaly" sold for $ 860
$ 1,000 did not break, but it's still a good result.

$860 is insanity!  I guess some people really, really, really like Plinia.

At least Plinia is tasty!  I remember people buying Phrag. kovachii for 10 times that just a few years ago... Not to mention the whole tulip-bulbs story :)
Also, well deserved Adam for great work with Plinias!

Adam, we love and support your work.

Adam posted earlier that he doesn’t have time to reply to emails so you’ll just have to keep your eyes out for his EBay auctions if you’re looking for something.

I just won his EBay auction for a Cambuca, I’m so excited! You rock Adam!

Adam, thank you for your dedication and hard work to please your customers, I have had first hand experience buying from Adam both privately and via eBay in the past. The guy is a pleasure to deal with, and quick to take care of any issues. I have purchased many rare Plinia scions, rare Garcinia plants and seeds and I am very satisfied every time.

BIG THANK YOU!! without you my collection would be so boring ..

Thanks,
Jozeph

It looks like the best selling season for plants in the USA is over. People think about holidays. This time, after one day your tree reaches the price of about 300 USD. It may also be a matter of less favorable trunk appearance. Usually, however, such slightly twisted plants develop very well, and such twisting is of no great importance.

Happy for you bro, those look like pretty decent (insanely good) prices for trees on eBay.  Outside my price range unfortunately but it's good to know your craft is appreciated and rewarded.  Keep it up.

Orkine, the price (outside the classical one: the price regulates the demand) in this case is a derivative of two things:
1) The American market is almost hermetic (closed) and formally practically blocked for producers from the rest of the world. The official reason for pest control; however, the matter is more complex and can mainly be based on reborn protectionism.
2) A small supply of similar plants in the US (with the option of shipping and purchasing via the Internet) with an excess of buyers. Hence the price that similar trees achieve. In poorer countries it is possible to mass produce such trees at a price of USD 20-40 USD max. So in poorer regions price level higher than 50-100 USD  is only an unfulfilled dream of producers.

Despite this perspective, I agree with you that the price achieved by Adam on eBay is extremely good.

Dominic, I believe the value is representative of the true market for this very unusual variety.  You can get other Jabos for much less, but they are not 'Anomaly'.

I love free market dictating prices, this is nowhere in the range of Tulip mania in Europe in the 1600s but even if it went there I would still be good with it.  May even sell a tree or two to buy a house :)

Orkin, I agree with you. Thanks to the generous patron who buy unique plants, rewarding the efforts of producers - progress and dissemination of new varieties is possible.  Sure you can buy a house for a unique tree; just like a small but very sought-after picture, you can buy 5 or 50 houses. Spectacular market laws :)

However, I often meet situations when governments over-regulate the market. Hence the mention of protectionism (which, of course, can affect prices).

Each variant/plant can be copied very quickly, it causes a drop in price. It is unfavorable for the producer and the government, but very beneficial for customers. Hence, the information that the market quickly reduces such price differences (if governments do not interfere in this).

Of course, this is a loose discussion and I wish Adam a success and a raise of at least USD 500 for his plant and work...
