Maybe this link has what you want?

I haven't ordered from them yet. Not sure how reliable/viable their seeds are.

oh! yes! exactly one of the ones I'm looking for. I'll reach out next week after my next paycheck, if some are left!

None of the Ugni species are very appropriate for growing in Texas. It gets above 95 and the whole plant will die--not get damaged, not lose leaves, die completely. Unless you have an air conditioned greenhouse I'd give up...I'm in Austin and have killed many before giving up.

I'm in Phoenix, which is much hotter. I have, in dappled shade, a potted Ugni molinae seedling that sprouted in January. It's doing perfectly fine, despite temperatures around 105 f / 40 c or more for the last 1 1/2 months.

This year I had stunning success with Silverhill Seeds, based out South Africa. I don't know if they can ship some places right now due to Covid-19, But, compared to some of the other known names, their seeds gave me the best germination, I'm going to have to give away or sell some of the plants I got from their seeds! And these were shipped halfway around the world!

They don't just sell fruit seeds, but if you know what you're looking for, it's easy to search their list.

Site's here:

Also, they deserve some purchasing love! They had a recent tragedy of the original owners being kidnapped and killed by extremists, while seed collecting a couple years ago

Olá, eu tenho sementes de Annona vepretorum. você precisa de quantas sementes? são sementes frescas colhidas no mês 04/2020 e eu ja semeei algumas tratando com ácido giberélico e germinaram em 30 dias. Mudas eu terei em 5 meses. sementes eu tenho no momento.

@André Pires

Qual seria preço de 10 sementes, enviadas para Phoenix Arizona?

Estou interessado em plantinhas quando elas estiverem disponíveis, mas não sei o quão bem elas sobreviveriam à longa viagem.

good to know.. in fact, I think I've perused your site a couple times. If buying seeds, I don't need to worry about this, correct? I've mostly been buying seeds from Tradewinds and SilverHill

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Phyto certificates and Arizona?
« on: June 11, 2020, 08:00:47 PM »
I've been scanning eBay and such for interesting plants to get, but one thing I've noticed is a lot of plants listed with a note, "No Shipping to Arizona" - which, of course, is where I am. In fact, I did order a plant via eBay, and overlooked the note. I was lucky they went ahead and sent it to me.

At first, I thought our summer heat was the reason. Now I'm wondering if it's some sort of Phytocertificate requirement we may have? All a new thing for me. Maybe someone can give a little clarity? Maybe @FlyingFoxFruits? I noticed Adam's listing stuff on eBay with the "No Arizona" note.

Just looking for a little education on reasons.

Awesome! Honestly didn't expect anyone to have this one!

@wangyouqin I'm only interested in 10 - 20 seeds, depending on cost. Whereabouts are you located? By treatment, do you mean giberellic acid, or abrasion or something? Feel free to DM me if you prefer.

@André Pires  I may be interested. I'll give Wangyouqin first take, since they replied first, but I might be interested in seedlings (if I have no success with the seeds, myself) (google translated: Eu posso estar interessado. Vou dar a primeira vez a Wangyouqin, já que elas responderam primeiro, mas posso estar interessado em mudas (se eu não tiver sucesso com as sementes)

I'm looking for Annona vepretorum  -  fresh seed or seedlings. This is an Anonna from the dry Caatinga region of Brazil

Well, technically... looking for all kinds of things. but I'm on the hunt for:

Parinari campestris
Parinari curatellifolia (have seeds - none sprouted)
Parinari excelsa
Parinari obtusifolia

Also, Campomanesia xanthocarpa

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Seedling label lost. What could it be?
« on: May 21, 2020, 09:48:01 PM »
So, i have dozens of species’ seeds planted. I lost the label for this little guy. I would wait for proper leaves to appear, but it’s taking forrrever. By any stroke of luck, does anyone here recognize what this seedling may be?

The title pretty much says it all. I'm looking to grow this variety of pomegranate, but don't know where it may be available.

It is mentioned in "The incredible pomegranate" by Richard Ashton. But no idea where it may be sold.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Mango flavor and soil/weather/etc.?
« on: May 12, 2020, 11:21:47 AM »
I saw the hothead "assumed expert" in a local Facebook tropical fruit group all but smack down someone for this legitimate question. Personally, I'm curious of the actual answer...

Soil conditions/type, weather conditions, season length.... all these things affect fruit. like a wine grape variety in one French valley not doing the same in a California valley.

What about mangos? I've heard they like  drier conditions, like in Arizona (assuming the soil and water are amended). But what does the flavor do in different environments? Does one variety taste like sweet gold in one location, but like paint chips in another? Has anyone ever collected thoughts on this?

I'm sure most facts would be anecdotal, but it's a start -- unless someone has a researched answer.

I'm in Phoenix. I'm interested, but I don't know that I have anything to trade, unless you want a newborn Pithecellobium dulce or Vangueria infausta.

Temperate Fruit Discussion / Largest leaved mulbery variety?
« on: May 08, 2020, 03:33:53 PM »
I'm trying to find what may be the largest leaf mulberry variety that can be found?

I there's a Florida Giant and Pakistani mulberry.. but I'm wondering if there's ones with larger leaves?

dang. I better wait for this time.. Phoenix weather is reaching 40 celsius right now. Potential to dry out, especially with 40-day travel time.

I'm interested in trying 5 Campomanesia xanthocarpa. What would shipping be to Phoenix, AZ?

Hi all! First post in the forum!

I'm smack-dab in the middle of Phoenix, Arizona. Is there anyone out there who has knowledge of how well live plants do when shipped to this area--or areas like it? I'm worried about them getting cooked in transit... literally. Our daily highs are already at 103 f / 39 c, and they'll only go higher. Humidity may be a factor, too? It's around 12-16%.

I'm sure some succulents would do fine, but are tropical seedlings and saplings something I'd be better off waiting until the weather cools in a few months?
