That sounds like the nice price for a Luc's seedling in CA.

Anyone in CA selling Luc's, is selling seedlings .
at 2-4 leaves growth per year, a 3 year old seedling can be 12 inches tall with 8-10 leaves.

For comparison sake a 3 year old Cherimoya could be 8-10 FEET tall .
So just because a plant is small and expensive doesn't always mean it's a rip off.
The seed's seem to germinate fast and well so you could just buy seeds .

Sound like you seen a mature tree there? can you take us a picture of it and link it? I only saw a seedling with two leaves once, probably no more than 3 inches, and probably priced near $100, I was just saying $50 for for cheapest tree in general, The Cherimoya you are referring to 2-3 years is around $70 - $100.  Might not be over priced for you, but comparing to other nurseries they are generally
more expensive. My Cherimoya  grown from seeds 2 years is bigger than offered there.

I would happily pay $100 if they had Luc's Garcinia 3 years old and like described, again please take us a picture if you can find it.
