Have access to hundreds of quenepas fruits maybe thousands of quenepa fruits. These are the best variety available within a few towns I harvest fruits from. I do not ship or even harvest the small fruit, large seed, little flesh, and sour/astringent fruits.

I have been selling and shipping the fresh fruits in these amounts:

$45 for 5 pounds of quenepas free priority shipping(EXPRESS 1-2 DAY SHIPPING AVAILABLE, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, COST VARIES ON LOCATION)
$75 for 10 pounds of quenepas free priority shipping. (EXPRESS 1-2 DAY SHIPPING AVAILABLE, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, COST VARIES ON LOCATION)
Let me know if you want more than those two options.

Selling 10 seeds for $15 free first class shipping in the US, international shipping cost with vary.

Normally, yes.  But there are self-fertile varieties available.  Trees are also available grafted both male and female.

yes they are, and even though I'm selling the seeds, I wouldn't actually recommend growing quenepas from seed unless you wanna wait a long time to fruit and possibly get a lower quality fruit. Worth it if you dont mind the wait and wanna grow for fun and possibly get better varieties.

yes! both from my own trees that are named varieties, and the many wild trees here with good fruit. Plan on being able to offer scions of quenepas and other plants in a month or two once I learn how to graft and am done planting out my food forest.

Grafting is challenging for melicoccus bijugatus quenepa; much easier airlayer. F.

Does anyone know what proportion of seedlings will be male or female?

the two plants I have seem to be grafts, I want to attempt airlayers on trees here in the future. The benefit of growing quenepas in Puerto Rico at least in my area is there are always male trees nearby, so I only really need a mature Female plant/scion or a hermaphrodite.

I purchased a box of Quenepas from Ertdude and it arrived perfectly, filled with leaves and fruit on branches to cushion it and preserve the fruit. Out of 5lb, only a single fruit was damaged.

They are delicious.

Added Photos of previous fruits I have had and sold! Also even included an Instagram story post of someone who received them all the way on the west coast! I ship on Mondays, and Tuesdays at the latest. Any extra fruits I eat for myself. If you want to get in a order for next week let me know now so I know to harvest enough fruits to sell, otherwise I will only get a small quantity for myself.

dear Ertdude, is it possible to identify Spanish lime plant as male or female before flowering, any difference in leaf or something...?

I dont think so unfortunately, and they take a while to fruit. Thats why they graft here. Some trees are also hermaphrodites
