Thanx Richard!  Seeds postmarked June 11th in France arrived today, June 22 in Tampa, FL in good condition.

I'm impressed with the packaging which was thin, sturdy, and protected the seeds.

Now my questions is: Should these seeds (Annona paludosa) be soaked before planting and if so for how long?  They are quite tiny.  How long 'til they would be expected to germinate, please?

Regards,

Paul M.

Hi,

Thank you for delivery update.
Annona paludosa seeds can be very long to sprout, several months, maybe up to one year.
I think dormancy can be break with gibberilic acid but i've not tried yet.
Also i think direct sunlight can speed up germination as almost all trees i've seen are growing in sunny place, without any shade.

Best regards,

Richard

I ordered several of the varietal of pre-sprouted seeds and Richard delivered them in fabulous order

I have been looking for some of these species for years and was able to source sprouted seeds

Will definitely place and order again

Hi everyone,

Here are the current Guiana's fruits seeds list with availability and prices.
This list is updated regularly according to trips in the forest.
For enquiries, please send me PM or e-mail (sometime i can take several days to reply, feel free to insist ;D )

I'm also selling other interesting seeds (medicinal, fruit or ornamental) on my ebay store : https://www.ebay.fr/usr/colombo40358
Price are bit higher due to ebay fees. Please contact me for special request.

I can ship by priority airmail (cheap, reliable but no tracking) or by registered (higher reliability and tracking). Both have same delivery time. No EMS or Express mail services.

I do my best to send ultra fresh seeds. As most of Guiana's seeds are recalcitrant, i use to extract, clean and pack seeds on same day i ship the packet, and it happens that i have to wait several days for fruit to ripe.
Please understand that i do not store the seeds, so don't expect me to send order on next day after payment done.


Important note : with current covid crisis, delivery time can be very delayed, up to 4-6 weeks for most countries and sometime more, depending of local lockdown effects. Seeds are sent packed with moist coco coir and can handle several weeks without problems.

Hello Federico,

Yes, at first, fruit is very similar to Bakuri but foliage and seeds give me 100% confident that it is a sapotaceae member.
Probably a Pouteria...
Here is a pic of seed :
