Hoping to this summer.

long list of those waiting to get seeds!!!

I've been asking sellers around the world for the past 1.5yrs


Apparently it wasn't a good season for growing them in areas closer to their native habitat, due to strange weather patterns...

I WANT ALL THE SEEDS!!!! as many as I can get of course...I pay more than the next guy to! LOL

If anyone wants cherapu scion wood that is also a possibility. As soon as they all flower will be able to segregate male from female scions.

They are unavailable from Jim West. I have been on back order for over a year.

Thanks,

Ed

A friend in Brazil told me he grafted the cherapu on succesfully onto Rheedia acuminata. Another one that would probably work is Rheedia warrennii. I'm guessing also that mangosteen would also work. But can't say for sure. Safest bet ofcourse would be to graft onto another cherapu.
