Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Wtb: chrysophyllum albidum seeds
« on: February 09, 2020, 01:49:13 PM »
I am looking for chrysophyllum albidum seeds

Honza, for now, officials will admonish, not punish, but situations probably will change. Maybe it won't be that bad. I think it might be another dead recipe in some sense. It is hard to imagine that they will open any private packages with plants and check documents :D However, with larger and regular sales, it is worth considering to comply with regulations.

Yes, I hope so. But the previous discussion was about importing seeds to EU and this regulation is very strict, I hope that It won't be that bad with shipping plants in EU. It's strict only for eshops (at least in Czechia). This could be different in every country in EU.

I have read the applicable laws quite thoroughly. In Poland they called it the "Act on the prevention of agro-phages". Who works longer feels what's going on. They hid the general restrictions under the guise of fighting imaginary threats, and most "stuck" all activity on the Internet.

The most painful changes concern online stores. Currently, every plant sold via the Internet (distance contract) must have a passport. It doesn't matter if you are a professional seller or an amateur who has arranged through the forum to exchange plants with a friend elsewhere. You must (on pain of a penalty) attach a passport. Passporting applies to shipments within the EU. For shipments outside Europe, they arrive outside of passporting - the requirements of the specific country to which the shipment is directed. For example, an agreement with the USDA must be attached to the USA, when sent to Japan, it will be a phytosanitary certificate, etc.

Be glad that you can still send plants with restrictions, but you can. In a while, they may even prohibit all plants shipments. The lobby of large producers is on hand to make producers cease to exist. As usual, it's about money and not about any protection. Pests know no borders and do not read permits. All virulent organisms move despite restrictions imposed by humans.

In my country, one wise man said this: now ecologicalism has become a new, dangerous religion which is trying to replace the existing foundation on which Europe (Christianity) was built. Due to such activities, man is as if in second place - ecology is more important. People are trying to impose certain solutions, thinking of the fact that they will avoid the problems of cyclical climate change or natural pest moving. Unfortunately, they are nonsense. We are abducted by the ubiquitous bureaucracy which is getting bigger like a snowball.

Who works longer in this profession knows that almost every plant from the market is wearing pests (those that have survived repeated chemization and will show what they can in month or one yer, but will be). It is similar in amateur crops. Pests are a natural and inseparable part of plants (when I write pests, I mean insects that humans consider unnecessary or harmful). How will the situation change after December 14, 2019 in Europe?

Until now, plants with pests were sent without documents, and for free (or only with the name of the plant and documents certifying payment of taxes). Now plants with pests will be sent with tax documents, additional "plant passports" and we will pay extra for it.

The worst part is that the governments is trying to draw new taxes, fees for their ideas from all sides, and few societies express their dissatisfaction. An example would be yellow vests in France. There probably still people have "eggs".

However, this is not enough. With every such stupid change limiting our freedoms, there should be hundreds of thousands or millions of people on the streets of Budapest, Warsaw, Prague or Berlin (in Paris already). Then the rulers, introducing any restrictions or a new tax a thousand times would wonder if it serves people or can it be introduced etc. For now, we have a warning in the form of Brexit that EU policy is one big socialist (sorry for the expression) guano.

Thanks for the time spent reading :)

Yes! It's exactly same here! But after a short talk with my friend from customs office, I have new informations. We will be probably able to send plants (if you don't own an eshop). He is one of those who control and confiscate plants, I would not be afraid to trust him.

They control mainly cactus growers, this hobby is popular in Czechia. They even pick out locations and have a name sheet. (for example, who visited Mexico).

So after talking to a friend from the customs, I have new information. And for polux: Yes, It is exactly as you wrote. Yes, it is forbidden to import seeds into the EU from nearby continents (for example from America). All sales of CITES species are newly controlled here, newly also CITES level 2. Other rules apply to e-shops. I can probably continue to post in the EU because I do not have a registered plant trade. But the rules I wrote about above are for eshops. This is also caused by a change in local leadership... :) They want to be visible.

Yep, you must have a phytosanitary passport for shipping any plants in our country. I talked about it with two friends who have an e-shop with exotic plants. Some species will be banned completely, it will not be possible to send them. It is a new regulation from this year. Let's see how it really works

For Czech and Slovakian members:

So we are not able to send plants in our country anymore (officially). We have to have a permission or the plant can be confiscated and there is also a chance to pay penalty 2000 CZK (80€ +-). And It's same for international shipping. What about Slovakia? Are there simmilar rules Polux? It's new and It's a huge complication for growers, small e-shops....

My harvest from today... Besides the other fruits, citrus varieties are: fausterime finger lime, bahia and moro oranges, myagawa satsuma and kaffir lime.

Great! Do you grow only plinia trunciflora or do you grow any others outside?

It is a tangelo.....Murcott. I am not sure what they sell in Prague but here the Sweetie is sold by the bag. It may be a patented variety.???

A grapefruit of Israel, patented similar or most likely a Oroblanco. Nothing to do with Murcott.
I have a one year seedling from the only seed I found. High chances to grow true to type. Look at my post from last year.
I hope in one year will set flowers.

Yes, it should be a hybrid very simmilar to Oroblanco. I am curious if it's possible to get it in Europe already.

I am looking for the variety that is commercially sold under the name sweetie. I am not sure if it's the same variety as Oroblanco.

It's a seedling. EU shipping only (via DPD). I am selling also cardamom plants.

I am looking especially for ESALQ, trunciflora and restinga or any yellow jabo.

I am looking for these hardy avocado varieties: Mexicola, brazos belle, fantastic, joey and others (seeds and scions). And pineapple varieties in EU.

 I can ask the citrus growers from university of Prague if they still have some plants. They dig out lots of old subtropical trees, old citrus trees are ok, but radically pruned.
