WANTED: Abiu Seeds

I'm looking for seed collectors/suppliers who could send Abiu seeds in bulk to India. Please specify the variety/cultivar as well. Thanks.

Hehe Thanks Mike :)

I guess i'm a little too impatient to wait till the Oz season this year ;) I hope there's a good harvest of both Z-4 and Marissa Abius this time!

Since Jake is asking these for rootstocks, I'm curious something about grafted trees. There was a lot of talk about wide variability in abius, some not entering production without cross pollination. Are all grafted trees of top Australian varieties proven to be stand alone producers? Just as good as those growing in mixed abiu plantations? Basically asking on behalf of homeowner who would like to have just one grafted tree in a backyard.
