Seeds arrived in great condition with some additional ones and shipping time was only 10 days. Thanks Richard! Hope to hear from you about my next order soon.

Hi Richard I've sent you a PM regarding payment and a new order (and another one in April). Have you recveived it yet?

It looks a lot like Cionosicyos macranthus.

Could someone be able to read the address on the packages sent from Vitor? That should help.

I've heard that this Gustavia macarenensis "must be eaten at the correct stage of ripeness. If you eat it on Tuesday it is under-ripe, hard and tasteless. If you eat it on Thursday it is overripe with a foul odor and taste. On Wednesday it is a great fruit, rich and oily.", from Jim West.

Found this nice fruit on the ground in the forest. Good pulp ratio, sweet taste (the skin leaves a slight back bitter taste in the throat).
I was not able to found the tree.
Any ideas ?

Looks like some Mouriri to me.

Taturuba - Pouteria macrophylla seeds added

May I ask how it tastes?

You've got a great land with a very good condition for various tropical species!

There's one thing is that importing trees/seeds from abroad into Ecuador is challenging. Exporting is easier but things will get as strict as importing soon :(

Looks pretty much like "Terminalia catappa".

This is "Momordica charantia".

It is Annona glabra.

I think chemical kill will trigger a neighborhood war. Using coconut beetle (Rhinoceros) will ensure a slow but peaceful death. Drill some holes in the tree's trunk and put some in.

Dada, Oscar's site is back online:

About emailing, maybe he's just busy or overlooking the mails.

I hope the fruit hangs on and grows through the last part of winter

Looks great, is it really only 3+ years old Mike?

Sadhu fruited his in Puerto Rico a couple years ago

Whoop good to know. Thanks dwfl for the info! Not sure if Sadhu's Luc tree has survived Maria.

These are the first Luc Garcinia fruits out of Mexico.

May I ask where your next stop is?

I'm in for any kinds of updates to ensure a stable forum.

Licanya Pyrifolia 5 seeds 30$

Hi, I've done some googling and could not find any info about Licanya Pyrifolia. Do you have some pics of its fruits and seeds?

Luc for the first two pics, they look like spider nest with eggs. Have you tried to open one of those?

Have you tried growing W. Edulis in your garden? In my region I've seen it only in the wild/jungle.

Looks like "Malpighia glabra" to me.

thank you. Just Dada for a long time does not respond to emails, and so want to quickly get the ordered seeds. In my region the summer will end soon so I ask Dada to send the seeds as soon as possible.

Don't worry sending seeds from Ecuador to Russia is not taking longer than sending to Vietnam. You'll receive the seeds in 2-3 more weeks. I think Dada already sent your seeds.
