I'm not trying to advertise this, but the USDA in Hilo has the tree. I requested seed from them and they granted my request this past Summer ... but it's good to write your intentions in formal email to the director. They may give you seeds. :)

Hi,

I tried to grow Pili nuts in Florida a few years ago. They all died for some odd reason, after reaching about 1 ft

Practically every experimental station in Hawaii has them. The one in Hilo has a large plot of them.

You probably want to make sure to plant a few trees.  Pili nut is dioecious (male & female on separate plants).  (I hate to bring this up, since someone always seems to know of a tree somewhere that is self-fruiting.  However, I would hate to plant one tree and find it never fruits so I wanted to bring this to your attention.)

John Mood had been a big proponent of pili nut and probably was responsible for a lot of interest in it here.  However, a few years back, HTFG has a guest speaker in from Africa (Paul Noren) and we got a private tour of the Hilo USDA facility.  We tried C. harveyi and we both felt it was at least as good, probably better, than pili and was very heavy bearing.  If you request pili nut seed from them, maybe you should also request the harveyi as well (and, yes, harveyi is also dioecious).

Pili nut has a reputation that it can only germinate under (or near) the mother tree, those who collect from the wild say it cannot be domesticated. I suppose it needs the same type of soil, and tropical conditions to grow. Maybe there was a winter difficult for your plants, did they stay without water or without shade in summer or did they have too much water during winter? This is all i can think of. Still if you have a place where a tropical papaya can be grown, it is worth trying three times. All of it is eatable and fragrant (you might have eaten your seedlings).
