Bakuri (Platonia insignis) and Chrysophyllum argenteum added

Hello everybody,

Some orders are late at this time.
This is mainly due to the COVID19 crisis, shops are almost all closed here, it is difficult to find envelopes for example. Post offices open randomly and only for a few hours a day. Movement is restricted due to confinement and it is therefore difficult to go to the forest to collect fruit. As always, all orders will be shipped.
However, some seeds can not be sent immediately, the fruits are not ripe or must be sent sprouted like cupuassu for example, this can take time, 1 to 3 weeks.
Growing rare seeds that will take many years to bear fruit should be a school of patience ;)

Best regards and take care,


Duguetia sp, Anaxagorea dolichocarpa & Lecythis corrugata added

Tabernaemontana heterophylla added

Brosinum guianense added

May I ask what's the deference in taste between "Redondo" cultivar and other Capuassu vars?
Redondo is the best producer, best seeds/pulp ratio. Taste is somewhat similar to other cultivars but i found it a bit more acid and perfect for juice or dessert.

Theobroma grandiflorum var. Redondo added

Posoqueria longifolia added.

Guatteria richardii added. Pouteria guianensis available again (few seeds)

Cupuassu - Theobroma grandiflorum added

Quassia amara & Virola surinamensis added

Hi Nate,

Can't find much info on Caryocar Glabrum.
Do you know if it is self pollinating? Years to start to fruit?
Any chance it can take light frosts?


Yes, self pollinating. Should fruit after 6-7 years. Not sure about frost, probably not but who knows.

Seeds added : Eugenia patrisii

Seeds added : Caryocar glabrum and Curatella americana

Thank you for your thoughtfulness.
I always ask advice to indigenous people prior to taste a doubtful fruit. They know all fruits with a extremely high level of confidence.
But as you can imagine, they have no idea of the botanical names we use.
