VERY RARE CACAO/HERRANIA PLANTS FOR SALE: Final day!
« on: July 27, 2020, 09:39:00 AM »
SPECIAL OFFER: Pick and choose 2 plants for $50 free shipping to Florida or closer to me.

Up for sale are some rare varieties of Theobroma Cacao and the relative species Herrania Mariae. These are seedlings of grafted plants, so they may not come completely true from seed, but should be very close.

Shipping is with USPS Priority Mail, to most states. About $12-20 depending on location and box size. Can also do any other shipping method preferred.

Trade requests are welcome! Looking especially for white mangifera species, jarilla species, Cola Urceolata, rare theobromas/herranias, and durio species/hybrids.

Nacional: This is an heirloom Nacional variety from Ecuador, EET-59. Nacional is the original and genetically pure Ecuadorian cacao. While this is not 100% Nacional, it is “heirloom,” and is almost pure. This is what high quality “Nacional” cacao from the arriba region is made of. Nice big yellow pods, large dark purple seeds inside.

Each plant is $20 plus shipping











Pentagona: A spectacular cacao from Venezuela. Incredibly rare, this variety produces small yellow-green pods. The shape is very unique, as it has 5 ridges instead of grooves along the fruit. Because of this, the cross section is pentagon-shaped, hence the name. Seeds are medium sized, somewhat lighter purple. Extremely hard to find.

Each plant is $30 plus shipping SOLD OUT















Herrania Mariae: rare species closely related to theobroma cacao, except mature leaves are compound and it tends to remain a smaller, less branched plant. These also took several weeks to sprout and grow relatively slowly, when compared to the instant germination and fast growth of cacao. Pods are green and segmented, below is a picture of the dried halves of the pod.

Each plant is $20 plus shipping.





Please PM me if interested in buying anything. Payment is through PayPal. You can also send me an email to Tomasz.kleczek@icloud.com.


Read before buying:
I am not responsible for plants killed during shipping when buyer’s fault (leaving package out for extended period, shipping when temperatures too cold/hot, etc.). If my fault, I will replace the plant if possible, or refund the purchase.

Plants will only be available for another week or so, temperatures are going down and it will soon be too cold to send plants.

Last week before I stop shipping for the winter, if you’ve been holding out now is the time! Major discounts for large orders of Nacional plants! Don’t have room for all of them...

Glad to see them growing so well! They’ll probably do much better in the Florida weather than I can provide here.
