I think you'll find that type has been grown around Ubon Ractchathani to the Mekong nearby for decades.

I'm glad it didn't take any longer to make its way over here.

No seeds yet, hopefully soon after Labor Day.  Thanks Luke for making these available.

Yeah, same story, I live in Central FL, so I got mine in a few days and already planted them. Looking forward to seeing this one grow out!

I received the regular mail  envelope today.  I opened it up and was disappointed that the plastic bag contains 0 seeds.
The mail does not appear to be opened by anyone yet other than me.

Its most likely due to mail pressure on the envelope. The envelopes were sent with non padded. What happens is the hard seeds get pressed up like pushing a pea out of a pod. They then eject out with the mail sorting process. Hopefully Luke will be able to resolve those issues, I would give him some time due to the Hurricane impacts.

I got my seeds today. I scarify around the seeds and soaking them in water.

What have you done with your seeds?
Do they show any sign of germinating?

For people who requested replacement seeds, your order is on its way.

We took a hard hit from hurricane Irma.
Good news the Purple sugar apple ' Isan Indigo' has taking flooding and high wind the last two weeks. we got near 20" or rain 2 weeks ago from low pressure system 92L.  Then just a few days ago hurricane Irma with over 12" of rain and cat 3 winds.

The sugar apple didn't move or brake and branches. this is a tough plant and highly recommended for south Florida growers.

I soaked the seeds for 72 hours then scarified them.



The one with the most shell removed is the first one to germinate.
The other 5 are still dormant.
This is how it looks after 14 days.

What was your germination rate for the "Isan Indigo" seeds? I had a very low rate. I am pretty new to growing so I am assuming i did something wrong  :'( If I recall right I ordered the seeds Novemberish.  Do you think they are still viable or far gone?

I only had 2 out of 7 seeds germinate.
The 2 that germinated are still alive and hopefully will take off
when we warm up.

So far I have 2 out of seven, in this time with the low temperature takes longer, and yes your seeds are still good sometimes they can take up to 5 months don't give up!
