I am very interested to buy Graviola de montaña seeds, the yellow flesh one.
The Biriba looks interesting too.
Anything available?
How easy is it to germinate and how many years to bear fruit from seed?

Thanks!

Hi, yes I have

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Ba0iLzeia6R2Wry1IZd8RABU25il08_JTFhH158nTmA/edit#gid=0

Just a few Biribá left.

to germinate, it is better to sand a little and then soak for 2 days, then sow in a good substrate, maintain humidity and heat and wait between 1 to 3 months.

3 to 5 years to fruit

Cheers

i tracked today and got this:
2020-06-10 22:12 CTP CPI-BUENOS AIRES, LLEGADA AL CENTRO DE PROCESAMIENTO

2020-06-10 13:14 CTP MERCEDES, EN PROCESO DE CLASIFICACIÓN

2020-06-09 23:29 CTP MERCEDES, LLEGADA AL CENTRO DE PROCESAMIENTO

2020-06-09 14:17 JUNIN, EN PROCESO DE CLASIFICACIÓN

2020-06-09 13:54 JUNIN, INGRESO AL CORREO

So what does this mean? is the packet still in Argentina? since 10 of June? If so, i don't have hope to get it in Greece this year, and i weep for the $61 and all the trouble i had to send the payment. And sadly i must abandon the plan to have Graviola montana seeds next year.

Packages are traveling to Europe very fine, for instance:

I suggest to wait 1 more month and I will send again by then.

i tracked again a minute ago and got the same result, packet still in Argentina! O.k., i shall wait a month until about the middle of September. If then you can send again, it will be alright. But if there is no availability at that time, or if the time has gone too late for planting, you may send the same next spring.

By the way i want to ask you, you mention "dry seeds" and "wet seeds", what is exactly the difference? The pacuri seeds you are going to send, are they "dry seeds" or "wet seeds"? And the Graviola montana seeds you have, are they "dry" or "wet"?

Hi, I am testing another route: first to Italy and from there to any place, so stay tunned. Wet seeds are species that need to be preserved wet. Dry seeds are from species that can last for 1 to 2 years dry, as for instance Psidium and many Annonas.

On stock now! the Psidium collection pack, many rare and ultra-rare Psidium species, very tasty fruits, hardy species, easy to grow.

USD 90 including shipping cost. By the way: shippings to USA, Australia and maybe other countries have extra cost (USD 10) due to Covid19 (we need to send first to Italy and then to other countries). Shipping ok to Europe and Asia.

I was hoping to have the first Jaboticaba de Campo Ramón by oct 10 but the climate made them start ripening now at Misiones! So next week I will have a bunch of them to eat, make icecreams and sell seeds, see:



* (22 sep 2020). Jaboticaba de Campo Ramón (Plinia sp.) Oct 19, 2019 harvest!. Wavy elongated leaves. Fruits are 3cm diameter, very good sweet taste (It has tones of maraschino cherries). This kind of jaboticabas use to grow faster than sabará and other species, they resist at least -5º or -6ºC frosts (21º F) I tested 5 feet tall trees at my parents weekend house in the last winter at -6ºC (21º F). The mother tree is 25 years old and started bearing at just 5 years old at Misiones!, (that's what the collector said, they take special care of the tree because its early bearing feature)

5 seeds USD 18 | 10  seeds USD 32 | 12  seeds USD 39 | 20  seeds USD 60 | 30  seeds USD 85 | 40  seeds USD 110 | 80  seeds USD 190 | 100 seeds USD 230 | 160  seeds USD 300 | 200  seeds USD 360




No problems with shippings to Europe and Asia, but maybe still having problems to USA, anyway this month and by the next one there will be a lot of flights to USA and other countries and we are hoping that thing will get normal... Besides that, I can try to send to USA via Europe too, so please PM me, cheers.

I am working to be able to get phytosanitary certificates, in that case, shipping should be via DHL or Fedex.

Pereskia and pacuri !
« Reply #568 on: September 19, 2020, 01:42:07 PM »
Hi! we are near to September 23 when the Autumn formally starts here, and there is no hope to get that packet with Pereskia and Pacuri which you sent on the 9th of June this year. Probably something happened and it was lost in the post office. Even if it arrives in September, autumn is not proper time to plant such plants, because if they take root now, then they will undergo the winter while they are very tender.
Either i have been unlucky (anyway this whole year has been very unlucky in many ways), or, as the proverb says "any impediment is for the better".
So what can we do now? Please consider sending something worth the USD 61 when spring comes again, about April of 2021. It does not necessarily have to be Pereskia and Pacuri, it will be fine if you send me seedlings or seeds for Annonas (especially that Annona montana with the yellow fruit) or big-fruited Inga or anything that is reasonably hardy and gives good harvests.

Hi, it is safer to send dry seeds now, PM me, I will send soon if you want to. This year was very difficult, but shippings are getting better and better,
By the way: you could grow the pereskia cuttings indoors too.
