Hey I have many large red and yellow Jaboticaba plants I'm about to plant in ground. Any suggestions on spacing for my location? I've seen not much info and the info I saw was for places like florida which arent as tropical as here.

Also does anyone know how big pouteria maco, cola pachycarpa and cola lepidota get? I'm about to plant those as well so any suggestions on spacing those would help too.

Selling fresh quenepa seeds. These are from a very good sweet and larger variety here. Its probably the 2nd best. It's just not as large as the best one here.

$2 a seed + shipping or 10 seeds for $15 free shipping in the US. International varies.

Hey just looking to buy Jaboticaba that are really big, or they can be smaller and close to fruiting/fruiting.

If you have any other large tropical plants I'd probably be interested as well.

Need to be able to ship to Puerto Rico or Connecticut

Pretty sure it's either garcinia hombriana, garcinia xanthochymus or giant leaf madruno.

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Selling Sweet Tamarind seeds

This is the sweet tamarind variety. These fruits were grown in Puerto Rico and were from a tree in my town.

Selling bundles of 5 seeds for $6 + shipping. I can possibly discount shipping or the seeds if a large quantity are bought. I have multiple bags of tamarind.

Duguetia sp.
White fruited Acai berry palm

Willughbeia sp.
Plinia sp.

Hey I was walking around my land and found a bunch of these on the ground. Theres probably 50+ mature fruiting wild Stinking Toe trees on my land. I know there a few species, but I'm assuming this is the common hymenaea courbaril.

I found over 100 so far all in the same spot. I can do $2 + shipping a fruit, or discounts in bulk.

They fall to the ground when ripe and have a very hard shell, so no damage occurs and they store for a while, these all fell a couple days ago or today.

As I find more I will update this post. Theres so many trees here so save this post if interested in these fruits.

I will be traveling to Pennsylvania for a lacrosse tournament. Does anyone know of any nurseries/stores that might have some tropical fruit trees and other edibles? There's a home depot near by, would their plant section be worth exploring?

Looking specifically around Conshohocken

I recently bought a decent amount of fruit from FLnative which were fantastic, I planted out a few of the seeds but I have a lot left. So I am selling the seeds from the fruit for anyone who wants them. These were NOT grown in PR, they were grown in Florida to clarify.

Superior Lemon Drop Mangosteen seeds - $1 each

They will be shipped in Peat moss. Shipping in the US is $3 for first class, around $7- $10 for priority. International varies, but if you purchase, you will accept the risk that it has a chance of being seized.

DM me if you're interested! I am not sure how to upload photos but I will try to.

 I was wondering if anyone had germination suggestions for them, since not all of them came germinated and I wanna make sure I do it correctly. Also I would be interested if anyone could ID some of them, a decent amount I couldn't find any information online besides photos of the fruit, which got me interested in buying them. The junglesop, shea butter, and a few others I know but the rest are the ones I am having trouble with. Any help is appreciated

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Where To Buy These Plant Processors
« on: July 03, 2018, 11:17:07 PM »
Hey I know this isn't exactly tropical fruit related, but I was wondering if anyone on here knew where to buy Cold Press Oil machines, the ones that can press nuts, seeds, and other foods to make things like coconut oil, avocado oil, olive oil, etc. I am also interested in a machine that can turn plants into essential oils, that I can then use for personal products like soap, shampoo,etc. I believe they are usually called steam distillers or stills. I have searched google for these products but have barely found anything, and if i do it's not credible at all and from somewhere like india or china. If anyone has any sources for these products or more information that would be extremely helpful. Thanks


Hello I was interested in mostly any grafted Tropical Fruit Trees. I tried to place an order from plantogram since they have a lot, but they cancelled it since they said they don't ship to me. I was really confused since it says on their front page they ship worldwide, and I am in a US territory.

Anyways, I am interested in any website you recommend that sells grafted trees, I would also be interested in buying from anyone on the forum who has any for sale and ships to me. I am most interested in grafted artocarpuses, theobromas, and jaboticaba varietes, however I am open to other species. Comment on this post or message me if you have any.



Hey I recently moved to Puerto Rico, and I am looking to start a food forest I can live off of without buying from the store. So I am preferably looking for foods such as breadfruit that can be used as a vegetable type fruit, or plants that have multiple uses. I won't be able to pick up any plants in Puerto Rico for a while, so I am looking for people who can ship to me from inside of Puerto Rico, or people who can ship to me outside of Puerto Rico.

I am preferably looking for plants/grafted plants so they can start producing sooner, but I am also interested in seeds so they can become naturalized to my environment quicker and increase the amount of diversity. Here is a list of specific of plants and genus I am looking for.

Theobroma Grandiflorum Cupuassu,Cupuacu
Theobroma Bicolor - Mocambo
Any other theobroma besides theobroma cacao unless you have a uncommon variety
Elaeis guineensis - African Oil palm
Vitellaria paradoxa - shea butter tree
Baobab varieties(really looking for large trees or grafted trees so they produce quicker)
Citrullus lanatus - egusi
Dacryodes edulis - butterfruit tree
Sclerocarya birrea - marula
Boscia senegalensis - aizen or mukheit
Vitex species - Chocolate Berries
Detarium senegalense, Leguminosae - sweet deter
moringa varieties
Sapindus detergens - soapnut/soapberry
