Message Adam at "Flying Fox Fruits", he is the Prince of Plinia after all.

The fruit is very small, but they grow wild in South Florida. If I was not so far away I would drive down and pick some for you.

For some reason I can't stand watching video.  I'm actually interested in this topic, I was hoping it would be a text post.  I am sad that so much good information is posted to youtube instead of text & pictures.

so instead of starting to discuss the topic, you come to the thread just to complain, when i posted a link to a video with 20 minutes of talking about the subject?

Lol! Haters gonna hate. I enjoy the videos and always learn something 😎

Thanks for the info!! Sounds a lot like the Junglesop... very slow progress 🐌

I germinated these in Oct-Dec of 2018... Very slow 🐌 to start the tiny fine sand grain sized seed, but nothing is impossible with enough time.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Where to buy ETFE foil for greenhouse

Does anyone know any good suppliers of ETFE (Ethyltetrafluorethylene) foil?

Hesperomeles ferruginea

Banisteriopsis caapi ---- fresh seeds just harvested! ---- (very limited) 2 dollars each!

They are just so small and painful to deal with. Also, I think I wore out my welcome at the zoo with the first batch.

Nothing has been proven to be effective as of yet so just make sure that whatever you are taking does not interfere with medications that you are already on. There is a fine line between medicine and poison. Chemicals can be just as dangerous from nature as the ones from a pharmacy.

Nobody here is an idiot, but I felt it should be said just in case someone who doesn't know better stumbles upon this thread and finds "the Cure", then proceeds to poison themselves with too much of it out of fear.

Pm sent

Sorry, I just noticed you sent a message to my email and not a PM on the TFF. I apologize, it is not the first thing I check.

Thank you!!

It may be because they are container bound that I have not seen fruit or flowers. I will remedy this and see!

I am hoping to use the fruits to feed turtles since it has a high calcium to phosphorous ratio and small enough seeds that will not harm them.

How many years till fruiting for Byrsonima crassifolia is considered average? My tallest is now about 6 feet tall and I have found little substantial information on the average year for fruiting from a germinated seed.

Any info would be appreciated.

For now at least local Central Florida pick up only. I am very sorry for the inconvenience.
Paypal only at this time please.

African Peach (Nauclea latifolia)

I have 6 trees that I will let go. They are almost a foot tall now and & fruit fairly quickly.

African Peach 1 gal. pots are 25.00 ea. (bc they are rare and a real pain to grow from seed)


"Nauclea Latifolia: Biological Activity and Alkaloid Phytochemistry of a West African Tree"

"Occurrence of the Synthetic Analgesic Tramadol in an African Medicinal Plant"


Yellow Mulberry, Dyers Mulberry (Maclura tinctoria)

I have a number of Yellow Mulberry trees Maclura tinctoria most more than a foot tall and rapidly growing!

1 gallon pots $20.00 ea.


In small pots 15.00 ea. (I will do better if you want more than one)

I am also self-isolating so that I do not catch this or spread it. We have to be responsible for ourselves and all the at risk individuals in our local communities. Case by case basis for drop offs so PM me first please. ***

Live long and prosper!

Great seeds at a great price as always.

Last order was perfect with zero contamination. I even left a few of the seeds that needed extra time to germinate in the bag they were sent in just to see...a month later with opening every so often to keep them aerated there was still no fungus or bacterial rot at all! Excellent seller!

He may still be recovering from the hurricane that ravaged Puerto Rico, unfortunately his farm was hit hard.

I only had luck with fresh seeds that I surface sterilized with 3% Bleach ( OR a 1.5% Ca[CLO-]2 ) for about 10 min and had sown in well draining sterilized soil. Also, only the ones I had kept in 90 to 100 % humidity survived. Leave them that way till they are large enough to harden off to less desirable climate for them. I never used any on them, but an environmentally friendly fungicide may also help you.

You have to have patience in the tropical fruit game...24 hrs is not patient enough. Give them much more time to respond. People have lives outside of this forum with travel, family, etc.. When you plant a seed, you donít get fruit overnight...patience is a virtue.
