There is no point to growing pond apple in the Bay Area . Its a swamp rootstock.

Cherimoya ripening times are all over the place. There will be ripe fruit coming in different parts of CA for the next 5 months.
I guess next year I will just order cherimoya earlier. Lesson learned.

These seeds were $75 or more per seed. Man is recouping some seed money from his succesfull germination.

Isn't this just Eugenia candolleana which is being offered in a somewhat larger seedling on a couple other sites online priced for one-half to one-third the current eBay bid amount for this tiny seedling?  E. candolleana also is known as murta or murtinha.

Just curious cuz in FRUTAS NO BRASIL (Lorenzi; 2015) page 396 (or pg. 490) have a look at the two taxa shown there and see what you think.  Both these two mentioned species Eugenias look very similar.

You should just charge $5-$10 a head for everything your putting together. A great deal. Can always not charge anyone you want to , maybe mostly everyone, but weed out some that come and just drain energy and overhelp themselves.

Could be down to make the trip and bring whatever fruits I can round up depending on the date.
You offer free jade plant or Anything free on FB and there is a line around the corner. Free Avocado tasting it will look like Coachella is happening at your house and you’ll have to make the call on your own party, for the safety of your tree’s.


Everyone’s situation is different and not everyone grafts. Glad your boasty on the deal you got and hating on a price you deem too high. Everyone put’s value in different places . One person’a trash is another’s treasure. What you might pay alot for may be valued much lower elsewhere , but either way it’s all about spreading the genetics around. If noone wanted Peluche , People wouldn’t be selling them for $200 + for tree’s this size. You got alot of hate mail to catch up on writing.

Poor guy, I just grafted mine on much bigger graft than this total cost of $21 with the rootstock. The scions cost was $8.

Just sold the smaller one.
This is the cheapest price I have seen a grafted Peluche Loquat selling for.
Have you seen them selling for less elsewhere?

Your sale posts are nuts!  Nice stuff!

Nuts? you got to be nuts to want to pay $150 for a tiny loquat ! good luck!

Thanks man! I often feel the same way about the seedlings you let go, A great service to the rare fruiter community.
Your sale posts are nuts!  Nice stuff!

I have the following pictured grafted “Peluche” Loquat tree for sale.
Shipping cost depends on location. Send a PM with your location for a shipping quote , probably $20-$30.

Add Chaffey and Randey’s Atemoya.

It is still available. Most everything is 2 gallon or larger.
Variegated is in a 15 Gallon.

Awesome selection. I would snatch that variegated sabara up in a heartbeat. Do you have them in a one gallon?

Thanks. Garcinia here push 4 leaves a year, 2 growth flushes of 2 leaves each time.
Year 1: 4 leaves
Year 2 : 8 leaves
Year 3: 12 leaves
Year 4 : 16 leaves
Year 5 Forward : maybe branching starts and then each flush is 4 leaves so now 8 leaves a year.
Stunted? They are Garcinia’s in pots growing in Northern California.
List of other Garcinia’s that can be kept alive here : Imbe, Madruno.

Such a price? Who else sell’s Luc’s that are not seedling’s ? Please provide a price comparison from others selling branching Luc’s.

Nursery prices are more expensive in California than elsewhere. Especially for plants you can’t find elsewhere . For example: I heard Rollinia’s in a 25 gallon pot were $2,000 at an LA nursery.
Now that is crazy pricing for a common, much quicker growing species.
Some people are looking for the advantage of shaving 5+ years off the time to fruit or growing a rare fruit tree unavailable elsewhere. $250 -$350 is a relative and subjective small price to pay.
Do you put value in what you do to make a living?
Lots of professions make $200-$400 an hour here for BS while skilled farming is always undervalued.

I’ll post some smaller 2-3 year old seedlings here with pics as well.

Right on, yeah timing is everything.
These Jabo’s aren’t in their beautiful new growth mode right now , so not the best pictures for selling but now is the time for me.
Happy to hook you up with any less expensive species from the Nursery or scions if you feel like passing through. I have a bunch of Surinam Cherries , Pitangatuba’s, E. Calycina, Paw Paw and grafted White Sapote & Loquat I am trying to move.
Have fun Camping !

Too bad I'm not in the market for buying right now... Wife and I will be in Felton this weekend 'glamping' in our trailer.
I'll keep an eye on your posts for sure though.

Good luck!

Thanks Lance! I have too many plants and not enough space ;)

Thank you! Glad to see there is some excitement around bigger fruiting Jabo’s and rare cultivars here in Nor CA.

If only I was in CA I would gladly pickup 1 or 2 of those 15gal beauties!!!!
