« on: December 06, 2019, 04:00:50 PM »
All sold

Sold out

I am selling many different potted plants. the name and photo of the plant will be down below. Shipping cost will vary depending on your location, size of plant, and if I ship barerooted/in the pot. Message me for questions and to purchase to not crowd the thread. I will ship anywhere in the world, but I can not take responsibility for plants being seized for international orders. Also be mindful of your weather conditions when ordering, I can't be responsible for plants damaged from weather/high or low temperatures.

Not sure of the variety for this one, but it is different than the two after this. It is a adult plant and can fruit in 1-3 years if planted in ground in optimal conditions

Again not sure the variety on these two, they have similar leaves but they might also be two seperate species as well. cant confirm either way until they flower/fruit and even then it can be difficult

African Miracle Plant - Thaumatococcus daniellii

Seed - raw or cooked. A very sweet flavour
 When the raw seed is chewed, it affects the taste buds so that, for about an hour thereafter, any sour foods that are eaten or drunk seem to have a sweet flavour
The seeds are also used for sweetening bread, fruits, tea etc
The aril of the seed contains a sweet-tasting protein (thaumatin) that can be used as a substitute for sugar, also in low caloric diets and drinks
Because of the persistent sweet aftertaste, it also 'sweetens' normally bitter or sour substances
Thaumatin is the sweetest of known natural and synthetic substances, 2,000 - 3,000 times sweeter than sucrose
The leaves are used for wrapping food

2 plants available, $25 each

Malay Lac Tree/Kusum Tree - Schleichera oleosa/size]
Young leaves and shoots - raw, cooked in soups or steamed and served with rice
The ripe fruit is eaten raw, A pleasantly acid flavour

I already have inga edulis, inga spectablis, inga pilosula, inga vera, inga fueillii and a few other I dont have the species names for. I will buy more of the ones I already have if you have nice sized plants.

Looking to buy seeds, plants, or cuttings.

Selling 1 large plant On Ebay, I have 1 more left I'll be selling. Here are photos of the fruits, I believe these plants came from the same mother tree the pictured fruits came from.

5 seeds $25, 10 $45, all 20 for $75

I have 1 large African Ashwagandha and 1 large Naranjilla both fruiting now. I can sell the seeds if anyones interested. They're pretty tedious to harvest seeds from so just let me know if you are interested, and I can post pricing If there is enough interested.

Grafted plinia phitanthra Sapucaia
Grafted plinia Coronata restinga
Grafted grimal Jaboticaba

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Flacourtia Indica Spacing
« on: October 08, 2019, 01:36:31 PM »
Hey I will be planting a grafted flacourtia indica today. Anyone have recommendations on spacing?

Only about a year old and already flowering! It said online it's supposed to take 3-5 years to fruit.

I got a bunch of Cola Lepidota seeds from Cameroon, like 50 seeds. I dont have in ground space yet for all of them so instead of them going to waste I'll sell them on here.

Photos of the fruit are not mine, just showing them so you know what they look like. I'll upload photos of my seeds tomorrow. Most are already starting to sprout so buy ASAP

Selling for $5 each, 10 for $45.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Pachira Patinoi
« on: August 31, 2019, 01:13:59 PM »
Anyone growing this species or more information on it? Specifically size and spacing.

I have 1 large plant I acquired from Macabucha Farm that needs to go in ground today because it grew through a pot, and was stuck in ground and then dug out, and it's too big for any pots I have.

Attached photo of fruit.

I have exactly 51 seeds of this available. Taste better than cacao to me, much sweeter and sometimes more flesh depending on cultivar. If I eat a bunch of cacao my tongue hurts but I havent had an issue with this. Very small trees and i have only seen them single trunked with fruits covering them.

Selling for $5 a seed, 5 seeds $20, 10 seeds $45.

The photos of the fruit on the tree are a different species. The other 3 photos are of the actual fruits these seeds came from.  So they have a lot of flesh and seeds for most 3 small fruits.

Making a specific thread for these since I think some people may miss it in my other sales thread and I think many people would want these. Fruits and seeds are from a farm on the west coast of Puerto Rico, I have around 400+ seeds. International shipping cost will vary depending on location, quantity of seeds, and the shipping service wanted.

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Lemondrop Mangosteen Seeds
« on: August 08, 2019, 09:53:53 AM »
I have about 250ish seeds lemondrop mangosteen seeds.

These seem to be a larger fruited variety and also very sweet, were comparable to achachairu I had with them. However after having 20+ fruit my tongue burned ;D.

Selling 10 seeds for $15 free first class shipping in the US, $3 more for priority. International shipping cost will vary.

Looking to buy any grafted/airlayered garcinias or artocarpus. Already have grafted lemondrop mangosteen and lucs garcinia but not against getting more.

Really looking for grafted/airlayered artocarpus like pedali, marang, chempedak, keledang, etc.

Looking for grafted/airlayered garcinias like garcinia livingstonei, garcinia hombriana, garcinia praiana, garcinia indica etc.

Have access to hundreds of quenepas fruits maybe thousands of quenepa fruits. These are the best variety available within a few towns I harvest fruits from. I do not ship or even harvest the small fruit, large seed, little flesh, and sour/astringent fruits.

I have been selling and shipping the fresh fruits in these amounts:

$45 for 5 pounds of quenepas free priority shipping(EXPRESS 1-2 DAY SHIPPING AVAILABLE, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, COST VARIES ON LOCATION)
$75 for 10 pounds of quenepas free priority shipping. (EXPRESS 1-2 DAY SHIPPING AVAILABLE, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, COST VARIES ON LOCATION)
Let me know if you want more than those two options.
