Could you send seed?

I am hoping to have Annona spraguei seeds this summer.  I may be shipping those out international since they are so rare but shipping is pretty expensive. I'll post them on here when they are available.

Do you still have Dream signs available. I would like to order a couple if possible?

I just sent you a message. Let me know if you have any questions.

This is a nursery in Bulgaria wich it seems it has the best offer in the whole Europe and the prices are more than decent( 3-4 times cheaper than in Romania).
There is the language barrier but using a translator helps while surfing their website.
Lots of authentic cold hardiness info are presented.
Anybody has experience ordering from them?
I tryed this last spring  but i got late reply to my emails and i ordered from romanian shop instead.

We have in Romania also, what are you looking for? I have mangoes, avocados, dragon fruit, bananas, citrus and many more for sale.

I am not so sure how accurate they are. For instance Key Lime
Price:23.90лв.
Лайм - Citrus aurantiifolia.
Възрастни растения с дебели стъбла - плододаващи с плод или цвят.
Студоустойчивост до -7С за растението и -3,5С за плодовете

They say key lime survives down to -7 C which is not true, under +10 C it starts to lose leaves and at +3C starts to die.

Good to know ,after i finish the greenhouse.
On bulgarian shop i was looking to buy grafted american persimmons ,japanese kaki ,and grafted pawpaws.


This year i will am planing to buy also those trees for my garden. They seem to have a really big variety! just keep in mind that last year they run out of some varieties of persimmons really fast!!

Did you ordered from them this year?
Im still struggling to comunicate with them.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: mango graft flowers and won't leaf

If possible can you post a clear picture of it?

Sorry, I'm focus-challenged still on the camera. The Nam Doc Mai has just two to three nodes about 5 in. above the graft union, so a total of 10 in. tall.  Those nodes have sprouted big flower stems twice in two years and I picked them off.  But now, a week after posting - surprise - it's leaf budding big time.  So, despite my other Nam Doc Mai, Cookie Monster is right that some are just slow to leaf.  Is this one a #4 variety of Nam Doc Mai?  I don't know.  Thanks guys!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Rollinia bark disease

My rollinia, about 6 ft tall, 1 inch dia. trunk, very healthy, vigorous, in November 2019 after 1 year in ground developed this cambium layer fungal deterioration under the bark in many spots along the trunk, and all branches were devastated by this so I ended up with nothing but a trunk.  In January 2020 the trunk started leaf budding again, so now, Feb, a few new branches are growing on out.  This was after my first rollinia (5 ft tall) died completely from this fungus along the trunk (with a dozen young fruit on it!).  Since my newest tree is surviving, I think if one gives them special treatment, like cover the trunk with moss to protect from sun, lower the soil PH like some guys said (oak leaves, etc), mulch heavily like some said, water well, maybe it can tolerate the fungus.  I know they have extremely shallow root systems - I've seen large rollinias easily knocked over by wind.  Thanks everone for the input.

I've picked hundreds of African Prides at a friends farm, we get them when they have a bit of yellow, and have a sticky feel to the skin.

Ong Nursery sells the 4 season longan. I have one growing in my yard and it has fruit now.

Here is a photo of the "Cumbe" cherimoya at a market in Arequipa, Peru a few years ago. I have a few seedlings going, but no fruit yet. Does anyone have photos of their "Cumbes"?
