I am growing Black Madeira in St. Pete area and as you can see from the photo, it doesn't mind
the heat or humidity.

If you are buying on ebay, beware as there are many scammers as well as sellers who don't really know
what they're selling because they sell them before they fruit and can't verify it's the "real thing".

Your best bet is to join the Ourfigs.com forum. Great group of knowledgeable growers who can steer you
in the right direction.

I wish you're closer.  I'll buy them.
good luck with sale and moving.

Thanks a lot Tony! It is always great to have some fruit trees in the back yard. Hope I can re-start someday in the future. Take care!

Or exotic birds  ;)

Hi Zoli. Do you give any guarantee for the delivery of live seeds? or the risk is only on the buyer's side? Regards

I think there are too many variables for a seller to guarantee live seeds (Customs, lost mail, etc.) I bought
some Pataxte seeds from seedpirates last year and half of them germinated.

Are they the same age?

Yes

I see, so this tree really likes that special pot with airholes....

It seems to; however I did cut the other one back as it had forked.

I am in AZ, but, I was wondering how long it takes them to produce their pods?  Mine  has to be at least 5 years old, gas grown like crazy, but never flowered.

Not sure. I read somewhere 5 - 6 years.

How does one know when it's ready to pick? This one
has a bit of give when I squeeze it.



See how the tips of the "scales" on the fruit are turning brown?  That's when I pick mine.  If you leave it too long, they can split open, which the ants and such really appreciate.

Good to know. Thanks!

Very tasty; a mixture of strawberry/grape.

I purchased some Physical Graffiti and Haley's Comet cuttings a few
years ago. Does the fruit look like either one of them?

Beautiful! Everything looks so lush and green.

Different strokes for different folks.

I have both NDM and Maha. I prefer the Maha as it has a "lemony" component to it
whereas the NDM is just sweet. The best mango is the one that a person thinks is
the best.

I previously received yellow and black grumichama seeds from achetadomestica. Every single
seed germinated. Buy with confidence.

I wonder if these are the same as the seeds Luc was selling back in 2014.

Nice fruit! do you have a pic of the whole tree?








That tree needs a hair cut...

I'm open to any volunteers. I used to climb up and cut back the top limbs but getting too old to play Tarzan.
