Murraya K - Curry Leaf Plant Seeds
« on: September 04, 2012, 06:38:12 PM »
I got curry leaf plant seeds to give away for postate SASE transaction.

Email me if interested. I have few and will send 3 seeds to each interested. These are fresh ripe on trees and need to be sowed ASAP

As the Curry Leaf is in the citrus family, these should not be sent into the State of Florida.

He's talking about sending seeds. Citrus greening is not cariied in seeds. Also there is no restriction in sending of seeds.

Oscar,

That might not be exactly true.  While the bacteria has not been found in the endosperm and embryo itself, DNA from the bacteria has been detected on/in the seed coat (the paper does not discuss the sample collection in any great detail).  Therefore IMHO it might be safer to not ship seeds of possible host plants into or out of quarantine zones.

I don't think the study you quoted tested curry leaf seeds, they only tested materials from citrus groves. Curry leaf seeds are very different from other citrus seeds and don't have the same type of seed coat. Anyway my statement that there is no restriction in sending of seeds inside USA is true. But you are right in that it is much safer for people inside areas already contaminated by HLB to not mail citrus seeds or any other citrus parts. We don't have HLB here yet and seeds are routinely cleared by ag department for sending.

There are restrictions on sending citrus seeds into citrus producing states like CA, FL, TX.  For instance, there is this one from TX that specifically mentions seed (this covers intra-US shipments, not just from outside the US, interestingly it allows materials from CA and FL but not other states):

TITLE 4. AGRICULTURE
Part I. Texas Department of Agriculture
Chapter 5. Quarantines
Citrus Seed, Citrus Budwood, and Citrus Nursery Stock Quarantine
4 TAC sec.5.152, sec.5.153
The Texas Department of Agriculture proposes amendments to sec.5.152 and
sec.5.153, concerning restricted shipments of Citrus Seed, Citrus Budwood, and
Citrus Nursery Stock. The department proposes amendments sec.5.152 and sec.5.153
to include the State of California. Currently, citrus seeds, citrus budded
nursery stock or seedlings, citrus budwood, or any part of any citrus tree or
seedling may not be shipped, carried, or in any way transported by any means
into the State of Texas. Florida is the only state allowed to ship into this
state under certain conditions. It is necessary to amend the restricted shipment
section and the restrictions on citrus seed shipment section to include
California as a state from which citrus products may be imported because
California is a disease-free source of certified citrus budwood and citrus seed
for Texas producers.
What's that got to do with Jose Andres $10 brussel sprouts?

Oscar,

You are absolutely correct in both the fact there are less stringent requirements for mailing seeds  and that the reference only looked at citrus.  I should have been more specific in my comment and stated that since C. liberibacter DNA has been found on the seed coats of infected citrus trees and since I cannot decipher if the DNA is in the seed coat or simply surface contamination (the few papers I have read on the matter do not say if the seeds were well washed to remove surface contamination) that maybe we should err on the side of caution with regards to shipping items that could possibly carry HLB.  Of course I have no idea if Behlgarden is in the HLB quarantine zone in LA so the whole issue may be just academic.

I've been looking into the whole issue since I would really like to find wampee seeds or a plant but I would not want to bring anything in to San Diego that could even have a remote possibility of introducing HLB into the area.

Hi Tim,

Thanks for the lead, but I called them about a year ago and they said they had them.  When I drove up there they told me they did not.  I had thought about trying them again but I don't want to drive up there again for nothing.

I was thinking about seeing if Mimosa in LA had them (and if they are outside of the HLB quarantine zone).

You should be able to find wampee already in San Diego or LA area. Did you really try all the nurseries?: Exotica, Perry Cole's place California Tropical Fruit Tree nursery also in Vista, Ben Poirier's nursery, Roger Meyer, or Pacific Tree Farms in Chula Vista.
