Tropical Fruit Discussion / Nutmeg - Looking for sources
« on: October 19, 2019, 10:09:30 PM »
Not specficially a fruit rather a spice, but it's a tropical plant and i'm very keen on getting my hands on a pair of them.

Any clues on a US source? I ordered some from a dimwitted grower from India through E-Bay that did not pack them correctly, so they dried out and died by the time they arrived on my door, most of the damange done was while stuck in customs/transit.

Temperate Fruit Discussion / rare grafted pistachios
« on: October 18, 2019, 06:26:34 AM »
I ordered some hybrid pistachio from a commercial grower when I saw them offered, no where in the US had I ever heard of anyone selling a tropical nut like the Pistachio that could survive down to zone 7.

I can't tell if they are dormant or dead, but the shipping stressed them out. I'm hoping it's like the cherry tree that I got from them last time and it's just pretending to be dead but will come back over time. The cherry didn't perk back up for a good 1.5 years.

The breeding pair is a Randy pistachio + Golden Hills pistachio.
Until I see signs of life I guess I can only ask around to see what others have experienced with this kind of plant.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Spice plants
« on: October 15, 2019, 07:41:18 AM »
Presently I am growing 2 All spice trees and 1 cinnamon tree (indoors of course).
I'm new to tropical plants and new to this board.

Too early to tell if i'll be successful but the All spice has been in my care for 3 months, hasn't died yet.

The ceylon tree is very young, maybe 6 inches tall and quite frail. The all spice are quite well developed, at nearly 30 inches tall.
