Does the add say "Polyembronic seed" anywhere?  I suggest buying a grafted tree.

110+ fruit trees/plants; 70+ mango trees; 12 jackfruit; 6 avocado; 3 persimmon; 2 longan; and a dog that keeps raccoons and squirrels away.

I agree...don't buy seeds, plenty of fine grafted varieties available near you I'm sure.  Why wait all those years for a seedling to fruit when you can get fruit in a year or two with a grafted plant?

good advice all. Thank you . glad i asked. Also, i only saw the first picture and thinking that was the fruit. Then I screw down and saw more pics and they all look different. That's a red flag there.  Thanks for saving me time, stress and $$$.
