Tropical Fruit Discussion / Maesobotrya barteri
« on: July 11, 2017, 11:27:16 PM »
I sprouted M. barteri successfully about 5 months ago and I've managed to survive 1 seedling, but everytime it grows leaves they turn brown and die, only to grow more and repeat the same process. The main stem is still alive and it keeps growing new leaves but I cant figure out for the life of me why they keep dying. I have the seedling in a ziplock bag to replicate the high jungle humidity but could this be too much humidity?

I'm looking to buy some seeds from Forest House Cameroon but I don't have an import permit. Is anyone also about to order from them and if so can I piggy-back off of your permit?

Temperate Fruit Discussion / Goji Berry Pruning
« on: July 14, 2016, 01:16:37 PM »
I've had a Crimson Sweet goji berry now for about 3-4 years now. It has fruited for the past 2 years very sparsely. It is planted in semi shade in ground with regular soil enhanced with manure and compost. It has gone NUTS. It's growing all over the place without much reason. When is the best time to prune my goji berry and is there a shape/technique to use?

Hello, does anyone have for sale some of the seeds from rare african fruits such as Dacryoides edulis, Aframomum, Allanblackia gabonensis, Thaumatococcus daniellii, Treculia africana, Strychnos spinosa, Pseudospondias microcarpum, Mammea africana, Irvingia gabonensis, Garcinia livingstonei, Myrianthus holsti, and/or others for sale in the US or could someone be a link to some of the African importers? I still haven't been responded to from the USDA about the permit and I am getting restless. Also, does anyone have seeds for Holstedtia species, Annona scleroderma and Inga laurina. I can buy or trade, please and thank you.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Climbing ylang ylang
« on: July 06, 2016, 10:01:06 PM »
Are the fruits of the climbing ylang ylang(Artabotrys hexapetalus) edible? They look like they have a decent amount of juicy pulp and as they are an Annona relative, if their fruit is edible I would think it might be quite tasty.

This is the fruit as seen on the Rare Palm Seeds website:

Tropical Fruit Discussion / How to grow kola nuts from seed?
« on: July 05, 2016, 09:23:58 PM »
I recently bought a bag of fresh kola nuts from a local African market and am wondering how to grow them from seeds. I know they need high heat and humidity and do well in light potting mix enriched with manure but should I soak them first, how deep to plant them, how long will it take to sprout etc? I also got a ton of fresh raw cacao nibs and I think these are easier, just plant about an inch deep after soaking in seed starting mix enriched with manure and keep above 80 degrees and high humidity, this I learned as my grandpa(nanabanyin) owns a cacao plantation in Ghana. Any info is appreciated, thank you! ;D
