Lots of seeds available and bunches more coming. This plant just keeps pumping out fruits!

Ya my yard here is some heavy stuff. Drainage is very poor in most of the yard. I have one high ridge that's sandy but it's an unprotected area unfortunately. Not ideal to plant stuff that needs detailed care. I plan to microclimate a few types of avocado to the southward side of structures I have. Hopefully get a 5+ difference or better up close to the sunny side of a wall etc. Keeping them out of a northern wind etc. Eventually going to take up the metal panels on parts of my large overhang on the front of the house and put on clear panels. Effectively giving lots of light and creating a 1015' or better covered area in two spots to microclimate several less hardy species but in the ground entirely. Then just prune to keep smallish.

Yes I do agree with what your saying. Growth speed matters to me too but lessly so than getting the best hardy types likely to handle here. I can wait on the fruit or graft later. Soil type tolerance matters too and I'm in heavy clay here. However I'm willing to accommodate that by raising them up when planting with better draining soil. Mound it up or create a permanent raised bed like area.

No problem!

Think I messaged you back but if not hit me up. Got many ginger family plants. Including the rarer types.

Many seeds still available! Many starting to sprout therefore only available for another week or two before most are too far along and need planted.

Me too I'd love the green calyx type. Also very interested in any beyond the standard red type. Willing to buy/trade anyone that has some.

I have a variety with large calyxes but it is probably the standard type. Should have seeds ready in a few weeks. There was a member here I cannot recall their name that had several types including green calyx types. Lives somewhere in South Florida is all I know for sure. Maybe she will see this and chime in.

Yes seems not super easy to find those types. You would think they'd be popular due to people wanting trees that can handle the zone 8 boundary areas. I had a grafted Fantastic tree at one point but it was smallish and was killed by a 19F night. Wasn't big enough yet to handle.

Mexicola types are a bit less cold hardy than I would like for sure. Probably will buy bacon seeds from Spaugh when they are ready. About how cold hardy is zutano?

Thanks Spaugh I might get some of those other types from you too.

Looking specifically for:
Del Rio
Other variety known to handle 20f and lower

Bumping this thread so anyone with cold hardy avocado seeds or seedling/grafted small trees might see this.

Thanks to Spaugh for the Stewart variety seeds! They came in good condition and look viable certainly. Recommend buying those seeds from him if your in need.

However looking for the most cold hardy types still though. Let me know!

Still many unrooted cuttings available! Get yours before the warm season is over!

Three people still in line for rooted cuttings but if there's any leftover after these members are done I'll post it here.

Thanks everyone whose bought!

Bunches of Glycomis seeds building up on me! Hit me up!

How cold hardy do y'all figure neem can handle? I'm in zone 8bish. I could protect it if I had to but I am looking for species that don't need help here.

Many, many fresh seeds! Get them before they start sprouting!

Still have seedlings too. Also have seeds building up. Hit me up!

I have both Thai "greater" and "lesser" galangal. The greater gets taller to at least 6ft tall and has thicker stems and the lesser about 4ft tall max and thinner stems. Both taste about the same. The greater has bigger rhizomes too. Both super easy to grow.

More fresh Glycomis seeds available!

Citrus Buy, Sell, & Trade / Looking for yuzu

Anyone have yuzu seeds, seedlings, air layers etc available for sale/trade in FL? Would like to grow these!


If anyone in the USA is viewing this I would love seeds for this and similar cold hardy species. A generous member in Germany sent seeds for Ugni last year and I had great sprouts. However my chickens knocked over the pot and ruined my seedlings. If anyone in the EU etc has seeds or anyone in the US has seeds or plants please let me know!

Thanks! DG

Lots of healthy unrooted cuttings available. Nearing the end of the best season to root them. They root best when it's hot and humid. Hit me up!

Many fresh seeds still. Reducing price to 10 for $1 minimum order of 30.


Thanks I'll have to look into that variety. Never heard of Fuerte before.

Thanks to Spaugh for offering some seeds of the variety Stewart. Excited to start some of those.

Looking for more types though. Love avocado dearly and really want to be able to get some growing here and perhaps producing within several years. Would love to find Fantastic or Joey etc. Have an avocado tree here I can attempt to graft onto closer to spring too if anyone has scion wood available around that time. Please let me know! Not sure what graft stock type it is but it was from a grafted Fantastic tree I had traded for before. The Fantastic scion died one year and the root stock came up and is still alive. Not sure that right now is good for grafting though. Probably best just before active growth begins nearing spring right?

Thanks! DG

Anyone out there with seeds of any super cold hardy types? Think it should be fruit season now right?

Thanks for any help! DG
