New batch of plinia coronata seeds. Different source. Sweet and delicious. Small seeds. 4$ per seed.
3$ each if over 50 seeds.

Very fresh seeds harvested this week. Even have a sip of liquid in the nut. The fruit flesh is edible like butia fruit as well the inner nut. Known to be the most cold tolerant feather palm and coconut. Down to 7F degrees. I have seen them growing outdoors in germany also. Very abundant producers with 500+ coquitos from a single cluster.  The plants are emensely valuable at 1000 dollers per foot value.  These seeds are  3$ each seed. 2$ each if you buy over 100 seeds.

Cylicomorpha solmsii is one of 2 native african caricaceae or papaya relatives. This species is only found on the volcano of mt cameroon. The trees are long lived and fast growing reaching 40 meters (120feet!). Very little known and researched, i dont believe this species has ever been available outside its native country of Cameroon. My wish is get this species growing in many tropical conservatories around the world. It is a treasure at risk. Hope you get a chance to grow it.
Seeds are 1 $ each

This is an ultra rare coconut species native to south africa. This golden form is less common then the green Its endangered in its natural habitat. With a cold hardiness to 22-26F. Taste exactly like common coconuts. These are relatively fast growing compared to other cold hardy palm nuts like jubea chilensis. they are not smuggled out of Africa. Also the leaves looks just like a Coconut palm. So they are the most Coconut looking Palm you can grow in California and similar climates. The difference is that they form a cluster of stems. 50$ for 10 seeds.
