Really awesome to see what you did and I hope that whoever purchases your property will have the desire to uphold a natural and wild sustained system!  I'm trying to put something similar to this in action in my small scale yard (1/4 acre).  I have removed all signs of what was a flat barron lawn landscape and added texture and definition to the landscape to help move water. I have then used native bunch grasses and annual wildflowers to create a living green manure that supports native organisms and my rad subtropical fruits.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Psidium firmum... anyone growing it?

My Psidium firmum has been flowering and holding on to fruit for the past couple months. I had mislabeled it P. australe but this definitely confirms my suspicion of it being firmum.

Thanks for the seeds a few years ago Miguel!

I just got a bunch of Nauclea xanthoxylon from a friend and have had great germination. Probably looking like up to 100 plants maybe?  Thanks for the information, really stoked to find somewhere swampy to plant this, haha.

How's it going?

I just realized that Ximenia americana is in season in Florida and was wondering if anyone might have access to some seeds.  Open to paying cash or offering trades.

I think this might be a Syzygium sp.

You probably picked them early as they can take over a year to ripen. It's best to wait for the scales bear the base of the fruit to pop off.

Very interested most likely in a lot of what you got. Really interested in E. speciosa.

You should be all good, they'll straighten out when they acclimate to their new environment. They definitely appreciate getting bright indoor light or being under a cfl lamp if you have the access/capability.

I've got 2 in pots that have suffered some gnarly scale damage, kind of coming out of it this year and flushing some healthy new growth.

pouteria lucuma or a pouteria species i think.

Hey matt, sent a pm last night. Would love to get growing this! Thanks, nate

Awesome shipping and good looking seeds from D-Grower.


Wow, awesome!


Definitely keep your eye on that and grow it out, definitely a desired mutation for a lot of cultivars in the nursery trade.  Can get really interesting flowering formation. 


I would suggest growing lucuma and grafting green onto it. That's what I'm doing and I have around 50 lucuma seedlings waiting for grafting.

Do you have these grafted already? If so, for how long? I haven't heard of this combo before. It would be great if it was stable. Thanks.

I have 2 grafts, one has failed and one seems to have taken, but time will tell if its stable.

I've got 3 species of Psidium sp. from tradewinds that have germinating seeds right now.

Fast shipping and everything arrived in great condition!

Thanks so much Frank!

I'm pretty sure I had tried the "Princess Diana" variety in California and totally loved it. It tasted like the most delicious blueberry I've ever had.

Awesome collection of PawPaws! Have you gotten most of those as grafted trees? I have about 40 seedlings I've planted and been looking for a source of scion wood.  Some of those varieties/ fruit seedlings sound totally amazing!

Yee haw, Phacelia tanacetifolia is a great plant! Smells amazing and has purple pollen as well.

Stoked to hear you using that rad California Native dryland adapted species.

I'll take the plant :) haha

I have rooted them in straight perlite that was getting misted multiple times daily. I also used rooting hormone on the cuttings themselves, and it took a really long time to take.  Don't remember on success rates, but they are a slow start for sure.
