thanks for the extras

I have 3 marseille vs black fig plants that were air layered this past summer. They range from 1.5-2' in height with good root ball. I'm looking to sell each for $35 + $16 shipping or maybe trade for something. If you are interested in possible trades, comment below what you have or send messages via email if wanting to buy.

They are still potted in soil in their 1 gallon containers, but will be bare rooted and wrapped with moist paper towel/newspaper and bagged upon shipping. And if the plants is too large for the box, will be trimmed to fit and trimmed portion will also be sent along.

Thanks for looking and reading

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Info about "weeping" guava?
« on: December 10, 2018, 06:12:56 PM »
Is there such a thing out there regarding guavas? Last year I bought said seeds from a person from Israel and have a few seedlings about a year old now. Was just wondering if anyone on here has heard or have info regarding on such type of guavas they can share? .....and bonus, I have 2 maybe 3 seedlings up for trading if anyone is interested

some of the seedlings also aren't as "straight" growing like most guavas seedlings normally grows, but rather leaning and bending from what I notice

below are photos from the person I bought the seeds from of how the mother trees looks can see that the tree has the "weeping" like trait and not just bending over from the weight of fruit load or is it?

These are the actual plants. They are,in 20 oz foam cups.

These aren't my  personal pictures, but from the owner I bought the seeds from.

I will get some tomorrow. Though, as they are still young, its more just leaning now. I''ll try to find the pics of the tree it came from. Now the mature tree defintely has that weeping effect/trait.

I have 2 extra 1 year old rare(?) weeping guava seedling about a 1'+ tall. It's white flesh and pear/avocado shape producing type. As for taste, I don't know, as I bought the seeds from a guy in Israel last year and just had these two extra ones I want to get rid of. I put rare as I haven't found any info about a weeping type guava or heard it talked about before, but maybe it's not rare as it seems and I just haven't looked enough on the web?, I guess this weeping guava would be great for the guava enthusiast or just anyone interested in guavas............

then I also have 3 air layer Masrseile VS black figs from this past summer. They are 1-2' tall and dormant, but I think one or two might have started to awaken. Marseille VS black is a tasty, hardy and productive small-Med size fig with a closed eye, so good for humid or raining areas and will do will both in the hotter states or colder states in pots.

I'm looking to trade for Kary/Bell/Hart star fruit, air layer guavas, red hybrid jaboticaba, sugar apple, garcinia brasiliensis plants

If anyone has any of those and is interested in what I have, please message me.

Thanks for time and reading.

I'm late, but do you have anymore sugar apple plants for sale?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / What is this fruit from Vietnam?
« on: March 27, 2015, 01:37:08 PM »
It's been awhile since i've been on here, but can anybody help in identifying this fruit?


His contact is at this link (cookie monster's post)

Edit: no phone number/websites, only his email and may take him some time to reply back. But I believed he is done for the season, till next year. Best try right after Halloween or early November as he does get pretty swamped. I was lucky to get an order in at the very last minute and i'm glad I did :)

I got one too yesterday along with a few longans, one black sapote and a few mac nuts.

Those are indeed large gourds, but those two up front gourds are a close up scale, compared to the farmer squatting down beside it. It would be extra impressive if the blue crate help holding them above ground was sitting on the flat ground, instead of hanging  ;)

The long variety get just as long and large, but just not that shape though.

That would be great to get some fresh lime seeds, just let me know when you will have them  :)
