I would say to ask one of the following if they have or will have: Vitor, Guidelazeri, Raulglezruiz, huertasurbanas, dreamfrutas, Adam of FlyingFoxFruits. A list just off the top of my head of who might have what you are looking for, also, these guys are awesome!

**If you do go through tradewinds.com for the Blackberry Jam fruit, there are two, I recommend getting both "Randia thurberi - Papache", and the other one, the other one they have is a bit harder to germinate so at least you will definitely get one species. Soak Randia sp. in a Gibb Acid ppm solution (can't remember what PPM concentration I used at the moment, its written down somewhere. lol) for 24hrs after cleaning and should pop right up. I had no problems. You might need to scarify the other then soak.

Cheers!

Hi,
Thanks for the reply. I have ordered from tradewinds website before and unfortunately the seeds were confiscated by customs here in Cyprus. I have contacted the website if they could possibly send without declaring the content as seeds or plants and they cannot do so as it is illegal in the U.S. The same has happened with Maui seeds as well. I understand that there are strict regulations in the U.S about these matters and i understand why the companies are unwilling to risk their business over a couple of seeds. Maybe you guys from the U.S know of any other way of sending without declaring the content as seed/plant related.
Thank you

If you want to wait a few weeks, I can prepare airlayers of Inga feuillei and Inga edulis.

Didn't know if you notice that I'm outside USA?
I can prepare it and ship to you, but don't know if they will reach you, because of the restrictions of your customs, in what concerns plant import.
