« on: March 09, 2016, 07:29:13 PM »
Delicious fruits!!  Super refreshing and easy to peel.  The landowner who I got these from called them madrono.   But i don't think that's right.   I'm
Not sure.  But I believe them to be garcinia Acuminata.







Please PM if interested in these seeds.
$3 for 10 or less
$2.50 10-25

looking forward to receiving these Bacurizinho (G. acuminata) seeds from you!

it was very popular at Bill Whitman's house, (where he called it a "Charichuela").

it's very hard to find these grown in the USA, and it's difficult to import them from Brazil...so it makes your seeds that much more valuable to collectors in the USA (or other regions, where importing from Brazil is difficult)

great find amigo!  I hope there is more to come from you soon!

The flavor is kind of sour and lemonade-ish, correct?

Sour in a good way...

yeah anon addict  you hit the nail right on the head.  Definitely a lemony sweet/sour taste.   Really good tho.   the texture is also very nice.  The shells just pop off too

Adam, do all acuminatas have that bumpy skin or is Whitman's charchuela a variant of acuminata?

Hey Paleo and everyone.  I just sold out but good news is I called the landowner and he's gonna let me come over and get some more fruit tomorrow.   So I'll have more soon.   If anyone is still interested or wants more seeds just let me know.   PM please.

If you live in the USA and buy 20 seeds or over I'll include shipping in the price.   Shipping is $6 for a flat rate priority mailed envelope anywhere in the USA.  Total will be $50 on that deal.    My pay pal email is jeffsorensen@vivintsolar.com.  Please include your mailing address with the payment notes and I'll get the seeds sent out tomorrow. 

Outside of USA shipping is gonna vary obviously.  So can't offer the same deal.

15 seeds with shipping is $43 annon addict. 

On another note.  I talked to the grower on Saturday and one other guy that was getting fruit from them.  He said he got fruit from the same tree of theirs 4-5 months ago and planted all his seeds.   Said 99% of them germinated and are all healthy seedlings now.   So that's good news :).

Honestly they sound pretty easy to germinate.  So ID assume regular potting soil mix with some drainage.   I'm no expert on that.  But I've been told they have an extremely high germination rate.

with the exception of a Mexican garcinia batch of seeds I bought and all rotted, the few new world garcinias (achacha, lemon drop and madrono..I think its the brasiliensis?) I've tried to germinate was very successful.
