3 cola lepidota plants added, probably will be selling 1 java pear, 1 mocambo, and 1 sundrop tomorrow. I have more mocambo and sundrop plants that are both larger and smaller, but not necessarily gonna sell them, so I'd buy the ones listed before they get sold.

Any tips on germinating Willughbeia ? I have tried several times and they don't take. they appear to be extremely picky!
I just plant them like any other seed and they've done fine, even the orange skin kubal I planted in bad soil a year ago and neglected it and it stayed alive. Most of the ones that have done good were already germinating when I got them.

Nuts contain anacardic acid and a caustic oil called cardol. They are poisonous before they are roasted (Blohm, 1962). Fruits are eaten by white-faced and how­ler monkeys (Hladik & Hladik, 1969) and by the bat Micronycteris hirsuta (Wilson, 1971)

When uncooked, the fruit (both the nut and the surrounding fleshy part) is highly toxic to humans. It may, however, be eaten after it is roasted.

Ertdude, probably just smelling the seeds is enough to assess whether it has the smell of strawberry or vanilla;)
the seed did actually smell sweet, it's hard to say but I think it was a combination of both really, mostly smelled sweet though

13
For anyone who was interested in the orange skin Kubal, I am not selling it at this time since my extra plants I had seemed to die. So I'll be keeping my last one. I'll be adding some more plants in a few days, a few will be sold later today and I'll update the listing.

14
Potentially able to discount if multiple plants are bought and open to offers on some.

15
I ordered several Belize Blackberry seeds from Trade Winds. I have germinated other Trade Winds seeds but had absolutely no success with Belize Blackberry. None.

How did you germinate your seeds and what was your germination rate, if you do not mind me asking?
it was a while ago so I'm not 100% sure on the details, but i just planted the seeds regularly, and I was using a bad soil mix at the time. I'm pretty sure they all grew successfully since I've had 10-15 plants of this before. 

16
I have more araca boi plants if anyone wants them

17
Araca boi sold

Blue lilly pilly sold

I wonder how they grow and disperse on creen banks, if most of fruits are seedless?
Anyway I am still interested in those seeds, and Aldo in blue Lilly pilly
I have a blue lilly pilly plant

21
I am selling many different potted plants. the name and photo of the plant will be down below. Shipping cost will vary depending on your location, size of plant, and if I ship barerooted/in the pot. Message me for questions and to purchase to not crowd the thread.


Herrania sp.
Not sure of the variety for this one, but it is different than the two after this. It is a adult plant and can fruit in 1-3 years if planted in ground in optimal conditions

$50


Herrania sp. 2
Again not sure the variety on these two, they have similar leaves but they might also be two seperate species as well. cant confirm either way until they flower/fruit and even then it can be difficult

Thanks for the information. Walnut looks a little different than Cashew.  Particularly interesting seems to be that the plant is very tolerant of high humidity, which can hardly be said for anacardium occidentale. From what I've read in other places it is edible, but only after cooking. When uncooked, the fruit (both the nut and the surrounding fleshy part) is highly toxic to humans. It may, however, be eaten after it is roasted. I have heard that it has a slightly strawberry or vanilla flavor. Is it true?
I've never tried the fruit so I'm not sure on the flavor or edibility. Interesting the fruit might not necessarily be edible unripe

23
The curiosity is / was how the whole fruits look comparing the one you showed regular cashews, Anacardium occidentale ?
yeah I have no idea I've never seen nor had the fruit in person, you can probably find that information by just searching it up online though.

24
You showed the seeds in covers. This is hardly legible (probably the seed covers will be removed for shipping and the delivered seeds will look different). I would like to know if the seeds of anacardium excelsum are similar to anacardium occidentale, or are there any noticeable differences?  Thank you.

Opened seed

I was going to send the seeds as pictured, I received the seeds like this and have germinated them like that prior, so I didnt think there was a need to open them? I also germinate regular cashews like the one pictured without removing anything.
