Current requests are shipping today. Will provide tracking information this evening to those getting seeds this past week. Still plenty of seeds available. The plant is also getting ready to flower again so any interested people don't hesitate!

Thanks! DG

I will send international but it is quite expensive. Usually around $14 for first class USPS international packages. However to avoid roller machines crushing the seeds you want to send as a package.

Thanks for the feedback natty!

These guys don't take long to fruit. Got my original as a seedling and it probably fruited around two years old. Have my mother in a large maybe 7-10 gal pot and it's fruiting like crazy. This is the second major round if fruits in a row happening right now. Have enough seeds for one 5 seed bag right now but in a week or so will have maybe 30+ seeds. They flower to ripen very quickly figure because the fruits are small but have an interesting flavor and aren't bad. 2-3 weeks from flower to ripe fruit.

I would say that it is a berry that is a member of the citrus family would immediately peak one's interest!

I say interesting just because I'm a weirdo science type that just finds a lots of things very cool therefore "interesting". Peaks my curiosity I guess.

Thanks Jabba for the glowing feedback!

Many seeds and seedlings available. Most seeds will begin germination soon. Another round of fruits is developing too it seems. Easy growing heavy fruiting even in a decent sized pot.

D-Grower
how does it do with cold/frost ?

i have one from seed. just started getting fruit last month
3 to 4 yrs. - nice flavor, not sweet though. tastes a lot like Gin...
not a lot of flesh, but there always seems to be a couple of ripe ones on the tree
and it doesnt take up much space. in a 5gal bucket, but i plan on putting it in ground in the spring...

It's probably not fully cold hardy but it handles better than a lot of stuff here in zone 8b-9a. I do put it under cover on super cold nights below 30°f. Figure in a microclimate condition or with minor protection were you are except on the coldest years. Definitely an interesting flavor. Mine is lightly sweet when fully ripe and squishy to touch. Cool plant though and definitely an odd ball fruit.

Thanks for the good feedback! Glad to spread this species around to more areas. With food plants at least it is my belief that more species in more areas equals food security.
