Seeds are brand new, as of this week, or still on the plant.

1 berry, 1 aril, or 1 pit, $1 each.

Red peach:

(metric: about 26cm)


Passiflora caerulea:

Potent fragrance.

^ Pulp benefits from sugar, in the form of a syrup, or mixed with a clear juice, to impart tropical aftertaste. We use apple or white grape.

Maqui 'super' berry:

For nutra-ceutical / functional foods market, due to high anthocyanin / antioxidant / purple pigment. Containing barely enough juice to stain fingers on picking, it would typically be dried and powdered. Sometimes gets mixed with acai.


Payment and shipping label via Paypal.

Small bubble envelope costs me $1/3

Medium sized bubble envelope costs me about $1/each

I have a free plant, for a local who can help me.

Thanks very much.


Are you still taking requests?

I believe they are using a mistaken Wikipedia entry for their reference.

Imo, the substitutions are also interesting species, and should be sold on their own merits.

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Wanted: Brazilian rosewood

Aniba rosaeodora, is also known as rosewood, Brazilian rosewood, bois de rose and pau-rosa,

Every once in awhile, I look for a source of seeds or viable cuttings.

I have Paypal and barter with seeds of hardwoods.

Will they make it to the US, and do you accept Paypal?

I am open to another opinion, if anyone can show me where I am wrong, but I believe that several, different Boswellias fall under the name, sacra, implying that they are used for Frankincense.

I am expecting a plant, identified as carterii.

I am interested in actually growing and collecting the Biblical plants, one of which is galbanum.

In part, some of the difficulty in finding seeds comes from it being wildcrafted, rather than farmed, formally.

Stuart, your list is impressive. You own or have access to all of these seeds?

I understand that Galbanum grows in regions of Russia and the Mid East, where it is sometimes sold as a condiment.

Someone told me that, in his country, 100 seeds could cost 1USD. Then, he just went away, without completing the trade.

I am growing Myrrh and have Frankincense, on the way, to barter.  I can cover expenses plus shipping, and a little something, for your trouble, if you're able to locate this evasive seed. Thanks very much.

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Coconuts Wanted
« on: July 09, 2018, 09:53:52 PM »
I live in southern California. I see a sprouted coconut on Ebay for $40, shipping included. I know it's somewhat heavy, but I understand that these are cheap and plentiful, depending on your region. If someone wants to make a competitive offer, I will give the sale to you, instead.

I see many interesting varieties, but am mainly interested in the standard meats and water. Thanks for reading.

I'm interested in cheap, viable clones, for a charitable cause.

He gets it right.

Sometimes, puts in extra.

I have seen tender Brugmansias, Colocasia, and Tamarillos succeed, in similar conditions, when there is a windblock. For instance, when a patio is surrounded by walls on four sides, with an open roof, or between a fence and a wall.

I don't have a logical explanation. because I have seen some ice, around, and icewater. But, something about that cold wind is especially damaging.

Also, keep it off hot walls and glass, and mulch to keep the ground from cooking it.

I'm interested, if they are found.

Was that Borassus?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Can we use egg shells for our fruit trees?
« on: February 15, 2018, 12:24:49 PM »
I'm seeing eggshell, in the soil, for years, which leads me to believe they are mostly inert.

They would conceivably be broken down, in a highly-acidic soil, or mechanically, as when a compost pile is turned-through. Cacti and other rock-loving plants have bacteria, which will allow them to break down stone, and, in theory, the eggshells. 

I find that these processes occur faster, where there is lots of life and input of energy (manual labor.) For instance, I have a mortar and pestle, that is just used for plants.

In what months does this plant set seed?

 8) Please pm, if someone is able to harvest the seeds, ethically. I assume that I can't use all of them.

Small quantity of seeds or plants of Aniba rosaeodora, in viable condition.

Thanks for reading.

Seller is honest, thorough, and occasionally generous. Bookmarked.

People have (mistakenly) thought it was a kind of plum. I have heard all different, interesting kinds of descriptions of the smell (even like bubble gum.) I was curious about it being a kind of Hawthorn.

But, when I finally tasted some, I thought it was like a small apple.

I was able to plant some seeds, during "ponche" season, so will probably have a few, young trees, in the Spring.

I see that the thread was started on September 28, 2014, but would be interested in conserving this rare plant.

I would like to start a collection of different-colored muscadines, from seed, and can at least cover shipping expenses.

I realize that collectors have very-specific interests, here, but am open to barter, if I have something in your wishlist.
