Got mine the other day and theyíre awesome!  Thanks!

How many would you like and what do you have for trade?

How long these take to get to US?  2+ months? 

Should they still be viable after that long?
Asking out of interest.

Still available?

Sent message a while ago, but thought maybe issues with the pm as I believe some were not going thru.

Can you teach a eugenia class?

Like an overview and then some of your plants?  I have a few, but only been growing and collecting em this past year, so pretty much tasted none but Surinam cherry- have some natives also tho I understand the fruit may end up being trash compared to some of the more sought after species.

Iím growing a few (redberry, Spanish, white, & Simpsonís), only tasted White (E. axillaris) and Simpsonís (M. fragrans).

Unfortunately, donít recall much other than that Simpsonís stopper was the better of the two, sweeter- and I remember the White being more tart and less palatable.  Itís completely possible I picked em at the wrong times and etc. tho, so will have to pay attention next time I get fruit- looks like I have flowers on a few of the Simpsonís now.

I will have to report back, tho Iím no connoisseur.  I do recall Simpsonís being featured in Tropical Fruits for Florida tho, if thatís any indication as to what to expect.

Awesome!  I planted a small one in some pretty solid shade as well, not oak tho.  I was recently considering moving it tho cuz itís done almost nothing in the 9months or so since I planted it.  I may give it a little longer then do the same as you if things arenít looking up.

Also, I think I wore out my welcome at the zoo with the first batch.


sending you a pm now (not about the baboons, lol)


African Peach 1 gal. pots are 25.00 ea. (bc they are rare and a real pain to grow from seed)

ďThe seed is said to germinate more quickly and reliably if it first passes through the gut of a baboonĒ

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Question on cocoplums
« on: April 08, 2020, 11:12:59 PM »
Native plants nurseries commonly have 3 varieties- red tip (probably most commonly planted and carried at larger nurseries and big box stores), green tip, and the horizontal cocoplum (a coastal variant of the green tip which grows as the name suggests, primarily low and horizontal- typically maxing out a 2-4footish I believe.

There is definitely variation in the fruit and I know there is a type mentioned in the book Frutas de Brasil.

Itís a native to FL, itís pretty, and I think it would be interesting to see if there could be improved cultivars.  I actually kinda enjoy the fruit, most are just a fluffy sugar kinda of taste, but like you mentioned, but the nut is also edible and of decent taste.  Theyíre no mango, not even close, but if you have the space or just see them fruiting around your neighborhood, I think theyíre worth trying.

Interested in a sugar dragon cutting.

(My messages don't seem to be working,  so posted to your thread.)

They only had a wild related species available, but seems a decent seller to work with.

I may know of another place or two if Oscar does not have them. Let me know if you need further assistance. He is the better of the sources for this.

I am looking for Dacryodes puberula & Dacryodes villiersiana if you come across any.


 Cool, thanks guys, will check it out.  Def will let you know I see any of the others.

Looking for seeds of dacryodes edulis for shipping to FL, USA.

Thanks in advance!

Yes, we have wild dacryodes edulis but they all have the same features as the real dacryodes edulis, you can eat it's mesocarp, it is a bit sour and sweet. It is use in Ghana to treat hypertension and other disease especially in the northern parts of Ghana. Below is its fruit seeds:

Do you have access to any cultivated / improved varieties of dacryodes edulis?

Can anyone speak as to- do these imports typically make it into the US OK?

I have acquired direct from Thailand a very large, apple sized variety that is supposed to be a new release called...

Wow how is the fruit?  Those look awesome, definitely interested in budwood also.
