There's a tree at my grandmother's that was dropping fruit lately. I'll have to see if it has any more. I don't really have much experience shipping, but given my own received packages I think it involves a ziplock bag full of vermiculite for the recalcitrant seeds, right?

I'm going to  do some experiment with them and graft some marang seedlings on them. They are supposed to handle poor soil better than marang, so lets try and see.

Moist vermiculite or peat moss in zip lock bag, Let me know about your offer.

Thanks

They're very vigorous and can handle poor soil very well.

I checked my grandmother's tree, but couldn't find any fruit. I think we just missed the season. My apologies.
