Hesperomeles ferruginea

Banisteriopsis caapi ---- fresh seeds just harvested! ---- (very limited) 2 dollars each!

They are just so small and painful to deal with. Also, I think I wore out my welcome at the zoo with the first batch.

Nothing has been proven to be effective as of yet so just make sure that whatever you are taking does not interfere with medications that you are already on. There is a fine line between medicine and poison. Chemicals can be just as dangerous from nature as the ones from a pharmacy.

Nobody here is an idiot, but I felt it should be said just in case someone who doesn't know better stumbles upon this thread and finds "the Cure", then proceeds to poison themselves with too much of it out of fear.

Pm sent

Sorry, I just noticed you sent a message to my email and not a PM on the TFF. I apologize, it is not the first thing I check.

Thank you!!

It may be because they are container bound that I have not seen fruit or flowers. I will remedy this and see!

I am hoping to use the fruits to feed turtles since it has a high calcium to phosphorous ratio and small enough seeds that will not harm them.

For now at least local Central Florida pick up only. I am very sorry for the inconvenience.
Paypal is preferred.

I will cross them off when they are sold out.

How many years till fruiting for Byrsonima crassifolia is considered average? My tallest is now about 6 feet tall and I have found little substantial information on the average year for fruiting from a germinated seed.

Any info would be appreciated.

For now at least local Central Florida pick up only. I am very sorry for the inconvenience.
Paypal only at this time please.

Great seeds at a great price as always.

Last order was perfect with zero contamination. I even left a few of the seeds that needed extra time to germinate in the bag they were sent in just to see...a month later with opening every so often to keep them aerated there was still no fungus or bacterial rot at all! Excellent seller!

He may still be recovering from the hurricane that ravaged Puerto Rico, unfortunately his farm was hit hard.

I only had luck with fresh seeds that I surface sterilized with 3% Bleach ( OR a 1.5% Ca[CLO-]2 ) for about 10 min and had sown in well draining sterilized soil. Also, only the ones I had kept in 90 to 100 % humidity survived. Leave them that way till they are large enough to harden off to less desirable climate for them. I never used any on them, but an environmentally friendly fungicide may also help you.

You have to have patience in the tropical fruit game...24 hrs is not patient enough. Give them much more time to respond. People have lives outside of this forum with travel, family, etc.. When you plant a seed, you don’t get fruit overnight...patience is a virtue.



This looks like it would be fun to propagate! Have you reached out to anyone in this group?
