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.

Garcinia Acuminata and Garcinia Madruno are both called Charichuelo.
Currently, Rheedia is in the genus Garcinia.
Madruno is circular in shape, and Acuminata is elongated.

That Madruno is clearly not circular , though I have eaten circular ones. The little spikey’s on the skin are a good identify er, can’t think of any other garcinia’s that have that.

The fuzzy skin/mountain madrono is sweeter than G.madruno which apparently can be smooth or fuzzy also and may be called charichuelo. A couple of other species around Ecuador get called madrona as well. Common names can be confusing and with Garcinias so can their Latin names.

My Guyana Mouriri which I assume is M.guinensis is flowering at the same time my second Mouriri which was from Jim West is flowering for the first time also. They look identical and don't seem to be setting fruit. Did your achachairus survive?

Can't find much info on Caryocar Glabrum.
Do you know if it is self pollinating? Years to start to fruit?
Any chance it can take light frosts?

Hi,

Yes, self pollinating. Should fruit after 6-7 years. Not sure about frost, probably not but who knows.

Sorry, Richard.
I just got an answer from Richard.
I'm Korean, so I didn't understand the internet situation in other countries.
In korea, wherever we go, we can be online and free wifi is available in almost all public places as well as by subway.
I now know Richard is a reliable person.
