Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Need Id this plant
« on: March 31, 2020, 12:50:21 PM »
The seeds were collected in Las Marias, PR from a farm that its owner had more than 350 species of fruit trees. I have bought Garcinia seeds from India and about 90% have germinated. I currently have 7 varieties from India and the unidentified leaves of the plant are unlike any of them. The truth is that I don't even know what the person sold me, I only know that the Garcinia that he sold me is not what he told me it was.
Also they were more than 60 plants of supposed Garcinias and I did not find any seeds in the base of the plants and for me that is rare because the more than 20 species of Garcinia that I have have conserved the seed for more than 2 years and I have some over 2 years old that still have the seed attached to the trunk.
the leaves look different than any garcinias I have. Maybe it's one of the rare garcinias from machabuca? What did david sell it to you as? It doesn't look like garcinia sp. Fst banana, maybe garcinia jorco but it looks different than my small jorcos

Good day all,

I have a white sapote seedling of unknown heritage growing in a pot. Does white sapote successfully bear fruits in a tropical lowland enviroment (Caribbean)?

I'd recommend getting a grafted or airlayered one, they fruit very fast and seedlings can take a while

A property I recently acquired on the west coast of PR had a fruiting white sapote plant before the hurricane. Not sure how abundant but I've seen photos of a decent amount of fruit from the property. It might still be there.

Also I have a grafted white sapote planted at a east coast location and its growing nicely. Only had it for about a year or two but it probably would have fruited by now if I didnt put it under a bunch of tall canopy trees.

So basically it should, maybe not as abundantly or maybe just as much or more abudantly as subtropical locations.

Looks like lakoocha

I might sell some of my small willughbeia plants. I'd also keep the willughbeia seeds planted as long as they're not mush/liquid, they are hardy plants in my experience and will germinate from half of the seed or from seemingly dead stems.

Tre, You are shipping agriculture products illegally from PR. if you ship Ag products without USDA inspection and do not get USDA to certify the plants/seeds, that is federal crime illegal. USDA certification is required by law from PR and Hawaii, I comply with the law every week. You just have not been caught yet, you will. California is vigilant. They even open my certified packages. USDA will show up at your door after they cite the receiver and seize the plant or seeds. I know from experience.
 They come with a badge on their belt as they are Federal officers. I know because you sent me some of the worst seeds (all dead) I ever received, not certified by USDA. In fact, when I returned them, most of the your seeds were full of insect bore beetles, USDA seized and destroyed them. USDA already knew about you, Just a matter of time..

Last chance to purchase before I probably end up just eating them

Puerto Rico

I do have a few different varieties of really hot ones, I lost the labels though. Either trinidad scorpions, purple bhut jolokia, or some of the other really hot ones like carolina reaper. I have some still on the plant and some recently harvested in the refrigerator

Looking to buy rollinia deliciosa tree. Located in Southern California. Please let me know if you or anyone you know has one for sale. Thanks
might have some to sell, will check tomorrow

Thai dwarf Mulberry cuttings $5 each/5 for $20 free shipping
Unknown Mulberry variety(bought locally) $3.50 each/5 for $15 free shipping.

They all need to be pruned so offering these for sale before I cut them, will root some to sell in the future too

I could remove the pots to reduce cost greatly and just ship in soil wrapped in plastic

$75 shipped?
shipping would be separate, they're nice sized plants, like 3.5 gallon pots

I have a airlayered Brewster and Emperor $75 each

$3 each + shipping
