Hey Adam,
Would you have any lemon drop mangosteen or any similar garcinia I could use for rootstock?

I bet he does. I picked one up at the plant sale a couple weeks ago that was 2-3 feet tall.

yes i have some, but they are really small, and a bit chlorotic...not suitable for grafting yet!

I'd be interested in Pitomba as well.  Can't seem to find them anywhere.  Thanks Adam!

sent him an email a couple months ago and never got a reply back  :-\  now it's too hot to ship things here in AZ. I wanted to order 4-5 trees from him. I'll try again in fall when the temps come down.

I think he's just too busy and with the passing of his family. He got to dig himself out of a big hole to get on top of his stuff.  Like someone said, your patience will be rewarded.  A while back he alluded to him possibly ceasing to take small orders.  I can imagine how long it takes to process orders that require 4 seeds this, 2 cuttings, and 1 seedling or whatever.  But glad to hear he has help.  Haven't got word back from him either, but it gives me time to at least prep for other things that need attention!

thanks for all the inquiries.

the truth is, I can't respond to all of them, but I try my best to keep up.

If you are not patient, just go ahead and shop somewhere else.

it takes some of these species over 6 months to germinate...

If biz is that good it might be time to sub some or all of this out.

I think most have a lot of patience it's availability that's the issue. I personally have no qualms doing biz with someone who has the stock I want and whom I  can trust.

As a repeat and satisfied customer, I wanted to say that Flying Fox Fruits is worth being patient for. Adam is kind of a one man show, so remember he has to package everything on his own, do the communications on his own, and on top of it, tend to the very nursery that provides the plants and seeds he sells. That in mind, I'm sure he will try to get to everyone when he can.

mmm i think this is settled! not only does adam provide good service, and is an excellent source for knowledge, his plants are great and worth the wait!
If your in a hurry  well your loss. Good things come to those who wait. Patience seems to be a lost art in this age of instant gratification.

Agreed. Adam is a great guy. After several shipments of plants I could not be happier.

As of late, sleep is a luxury I can not afford...especially now that Rex, (aka, "Manservant Hecubus") is part of my family.  His crate is like that little box from the movie HellRaiser...open it up, and out comes a demon!  He's the love of my life, but he's at the stage in his life, where he thinks it's ok to bite my face...he's got puppy breath, and sharp puppy teeth...but he's a fast learner and a joy to have.  ;D

can anyone guess what breed his parents were?  (he is an unusual mix, and people usually laugh when they find out...please don't guess if you already know!)
