Hi,

I am also looking for more seeds of ilama, Annona diversifolia which has pink pulp and cracks when ripe, NOT soncoya which is Annnona purpurea with yellow pulp. They are 2 distinct annona species. So far I have tried the eBay vendor in Mexico who trade name is naretmx and he is a reliable supplier. Unfortunately he said it is out of stock ATM and he may have ilama seeds around September 2019. The following are also sources but I have never tried: -

Annona purpurea, Soncoya or cabeza de negro (Yellow or orange fleshed)

(in stock: 10 seeds EUR7.80)

      (out of stock: 5 seeds US$10.95)

Annona diversifolia, ilama (purplish-pink pulp and fruit tends to crack when ripe)

      (in stock: 3 seeds US$5.99 + shipping $6.99)

eBay vendor: naretmx ― I have confirmed with him that he may have seeds in coming September. A reliable vendor from Mexico which I have patronized 5 times buying mamey sapote and ilama seeds but unfortunately the latter failed to germinate. It is a very difficult seed to germinate according to forum members.

Beware, there is a lot of online traders selling fake or look-alike things. Recently I have been cheated by a Sri Lankan vendor who was selling canistel (pouteria campechiana) seeds as mamey sapote (pouteria sapota) seeds. Luckily I got back a refund and I won't trust him anymore!

Good luck!
Paul
