If anyone have never bought seeds from Oscar before you should go on his website today and order some because they are consistently the best quality seeds. I've ordered from him a few times and the seeds have always arrived quickly and were viable. I actually just ordered some Theobroma bicolor seeds yesterday.

Thanks guys for all the kudos! I hope i can continue to live up to your expectations. I do make mistake sometimes, but when i do i try to correct them. As you might have noticed this is not my business...it's my hobby gone totally out of control! HAHA So i consider myself very lucky, and do it with a passion.
BTW, the Theobroma bicolor, aka white cacao, is not fruiting right now, but will send to you ASAP. Thanks for your patience!

Oscar,
I got some abiu seeds from Oscar long time ago.  The seeds arrived already germinating inside the ziplock bag.  Those seeds became some fantastic abiu trees that will flower and fruit any time soon!  Thank you Oscar!  Great seeds!

Oscar, in Spain (whole European Union) you need an phyto certificate. But a few weeks ago, we got scions from FL and decided not to ask for a phyto. The reason is, with a phyto, the parcel would take much longer to pass customs and that could be fatal to the plant material. At the end the authorities do not care whether some 'sticks' have a phyto or not, specially customs in souther Europe...  ;D

I guess egyptian customs should behave similar to spanish ones...

BTW, now the grafted plants are in quarantine ;)

Amr, can send without phyto if you are willing to take all the risks of it getting confiscated by your ag dept? I still haven't had a change to phone ag here to find out official rules for Egypt.

I will be interested in some scion in a few weeks. I am going to see if I can pick up another Manila mango tree on the cheap. I have one tree ready to top work, just need another to add more mango varieties :).

Sorry cannot do small quantities. Have $100 minimum. Lots of red tape, especially to California.

All of you Southern California people should join together and do a big batch order that will meet the $100 min requirement.

Thanks Oscar for your reply.

I will give it a shot, but i am not sure if i should start by a large order that will arouse inspection.

I will contact on email to see the prices and availability.

Thanks, Amr

So far;

Fruitlovers - I live in the desert of Southern California - which varieties of your mango scions do you think might be best adapted to my smoking hot summers?

Barring a clear answer to that question, which of the mango scion wood that you have available would be your (personal) top 5 favorite tasting/fiberless or near fiberless varieties?  And what would be the latest flowering/fruiting varieties....

(Just trying to pick out from your choices what I don't already have)

MangoFan i have zero experience growing mangos in hot desert areas. I can only tell you what does well here in Hawaii and what tastes great in Hawaii. Some of my best tasting and producing so far are Rapoza, Golden Glow, Florigon, Brook's Late, and Fairchild. But not all of my trees have fruited yet, maybe about 1/3.
Oscar
PS i've heard thru grapevine that Manzanillo does well in desert areas. That's also a very large and good tasting one.
