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 some countries with lockdown.
Seeds are sent packed with moist coco coir and can handle several weeks without any problems.

I can testify to sellerís seed freshness and good packaging. Despite 3 weeks in the mail Melicoccus and Garcinia germination was 80% plus.
