I still can't believe my friend sold you those Garcinia jorco seeds. I had been asking him about these seeds since January. You had more luck than me that I have been buying from him for more than 5 years.

I actually got about 30+ garcinia jorco fruits from David, surprised you havent got any. You're wayyy closer. I have some extras I was gonna plant but I can definitely send you a few. pm me your address.

Still have a bunch of everything left except garcinia jorco available!

I may be getting bilimbi, mammea americana, pedalai, durian(different varieties), picralima nitida, coffee, and velvet apple seeds. Message me or comment on here if you're interested in getting any of those seeds just mentioned so I can make sure I get a large quantity, otherwise I may not get them at all.

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Lemondrop Mangosteen Seeds
« on: August 08, 2019, 09:53:53 AM »
I have about 250ish seeds lemondrop mangosteen seeds.

These seem to be a larger fruited variety and also very sweet, were comparable to achachairu I had with them. However after having 20+ fruit my tongue burned ;D.

Selling 10 seeds for $15 free first class shipping in the US, $3 more for priority. International shipping cost will vary.

Still looking! Also updated title and thread to include airlayers since those are even better for me.

I can't see anyone needing more than 10ft between garcinias.  Even that is a quite a bit.  Most garcinias (at least the ones that we can grow in south florida) can be trimmed into a large bush at maturity.  The largest ones that I've seen are Gamboge and even 30 year old specimens if left untamed might only need about 15ft to thrive. On our new property I have yet to plant any out, however next summer will probably be when I'll get to it and I plan on using 7-8ft spacing....and I am not limited on space on my property either.
I guess my conditions are very, very different but I have Achacharu planted at 10 meters and the branches badly cross over each other from the neighbor trees.
Peter
I doubt you need 8 - 10 meter spacing, especially if you are not growing a grove of fruit trees. Much of the spacing requirements recommended relate to orchard grown trees that will need space in between for vehicles and machinery.

I have seen multiple places mention tropical plants not growing as fast or tall in locations like California or Florida. An example I saw a Sapodillia tree only grew to 20 feet tall in 30 years I think in California. So I'd assume you guys being in florida would require less spacing?

I had already planted a garcinia hombriana in ground before this post, need to check the spacing. And about 3 imbes within a few feet of each other as an experiment to see if they'll fuse or do something else. Hoping theres at least 1 male and female between the 3.

I have 2 achachairu that are many 4 feet tall and they're growing nicely, 1 is planted pretty close to other plants so worried I might need to take them out.

11
Probably have close to 100 seeds, would like to sell them but if not I'll cook them soon!

12
Do you mean pouteria torta abiu pilosa,?
hey yes I need to update the thread with that. Are you growing it at all?

13
How big is big? I have quite a few but it is cost prohibitive to ship them to PR. You're looking at big time money for big trees.
if you could send photos of them thatd be great, i cant really give a exact height size since I've been going by how it looks more than numbers. Also depends on variety as well. Looking for a large sabara/purple Jaboticaba since I already have some large red and yellow, but dont mind getting more.

 
Puerto Rico shipping is same as state to state.
If it fits in a priority mail box you are good for less than $20.
Check with Montoso or the Nursery near Cabo Roja.
actually bought a few big red/yellow from them, all the ones they had available. I'll check out that other nursery, gonna message you soon by the way to buy some stuff!

This is dioecious right?
yes they are, and even though I'm selling the seeds, I wouldn't actually recommend growing quenepas from seed unless you wanna wait a long time to fruit and possibly get a lower quality fruit. Worth it if you dont mind the wait and wanna grow for fun and possibly get better varieties.
got any good scions to sell down the road?
yes! both from my own trees that are named varieties, and the many wild trees here with good fruit. Plan on being able to offer scions of quenepas and other plants in a month or two once I learn how to graft and am done planting out my food forest.
Grafting is challenging for melicoccus bijugatus quenepa; much easier airlayer. F.
the two plants I have seem to be grafts, I want to attempt airlayers on trees here in the future. The benefit of growing quenepas in Puerto Rico at least in my area is there are always male trees nearby, so I only really need a mature Female plant/scion or a hermaphrodite.

15
are the seeds hard shelled? Do they have a long viability?
they are recalcitrant seeds

16
Still interested in large plants, or plants grown from cuttings. Preferably shipping directly to PR.

« on: August 02, 2019, 12:13:27 AM »
If you have the space Iíd say 10m for xanthochymus.  Livingstonii might be 8m.  Iíve never seen hombriana, I think itís smaller though.
Suerte,
Peter
Thank you! Didn't know imbe needed that much space.

Anymore suggestions are appreciated as well before I plant them in ground, can any 3 of these plants be kept pruned nicely while still producing a lot of fruit and reducing spacing needs?

still needing information, I want to plant in ground soon!

21
Looking to buy any grafted/airlayered garcinias or artocarpus. Already have grafted lemondrop mangosteen and lucs garcinia but not against getting more.

Really looking for grafted/airlayered artocarpus like pedali, marang, chempedak, keledang, etc.

Looking for grafted/airlayered garcinias like garcinia livingstonei, garcinia hombriana, garcinia praiana, garcinia indica etc.

22

Have access to hundreds of quenepas fruits maybe thousands of quenepa fruits. These are the top variety I can get here, theres no sourness i can detect especially when freshly picked, the sweetness is overpowering.

I have been selling and shipping the fresh fruits in these amounts:

$35 for 3-5 pounds of quenepas free priority shipping.
$75 for 8-10 pounds of quenepas free priority shipping.
Let me know if you want more than those two options.

They do not store long so need to sell the current ones I have in the next couple days otherwise you will need to wait for me to get more which can take a couple days or a week max.

Selling 10 seeds for $15 free shipping in the US, international shipping cost with vary but will be at least $10 so I recommend buying a lot more if you are international.

25
Many more seeds available again!
