Hi Carlos

Seeds arrived fine yesterday. Thank you. What is your recommendation for best results germinating the seeds? What kind of soil? How often watering?

Thanks
Brad

Not Carlos, but I collected some from one of the large fruits recently as well. I put mine in dilluted (20% or so) hydrogen peroxide to soak for a few hours, then put on the surface of saturated sphagnum moss, on a heating pad, in a humidity tray. The first sprouted in under 24 hours IIRC, and 7 days later I have tons up.

I literally just got a fresh batch of seeds available by pure luck.  Will be processing them all week.  It doesn't get fresher than this.  I was down to less than 75 seeds and came 8nto some gorgeous fruit.  They go very fast especially when they're this fresh.

Hi Carlos.
Can you please upload some photos of your plant with mature fruit on it? You mentioned to me in the past that you are also growing it (along with 30 other cultivars).

Hi Carlos

I've PM'd you again, waiting for a reply.

Need to know if seeds have been shipped :)

Thanks

Hi, Carlos.
I ordered from you last year and my seedlings are doing well. I noted that several posters have asked about pictures of both the fruit or in particular the grown plant. I too would love to see them. Also, do you intend to sell/trade cuttings any time soon?
Thanks,
Keith

Hi Carlos

I've PM you but haven't had a reply.

The extra seeds you sent didn't arrive. Can you confirm the address you've been trying to send them to? I've ordered seeds internationally many times now and never had issues receiving them, so this is a bit odd.

Thanks!

I know someone (on this forum) who got his first fruit from a plant originating from these seeds. He said it was no different in size from the standard megalanthus, but wanted to wait another season in the hope that the fruit might get better.
I am not optimistic.
Carlos also told me that the giant Peruvian was naturally thornless, however I think this is another lie. Basically, Carlos has just been selling seeds of fruit imported from Peru, which probably just had the thorns manually removed. Carlos said he is growing it himself, but never uploaded a single photo and won't sell a cutting even though that would maintain the true-to-typeness. Then there is the problem of hybridization, either from Peru or from Carlos (who told me he grows 30 cultivars). He doesn't respond to any of these issues raised ~ just keeps accepting orders and sending out seeds.

This has been my assumption for a while now. He has a facebook page if anyone has tried to contact him there. Or at least he had. If he doesn't respond soon, maybe I'll write him a letter.
