People in America have a great gesture!
From the initial price of USD 0.1, they have now been up to over USD 500 in one day! and two days to the end. This is a great achievement for this unique plant slightly larger than a large foot. Im very impressed! Do you think Adam that it will "break" 1000 USD?

I do not know how others are reading but I feel encouraged to grow similar plants. And it's not only about money, but also an interestingly illustrated physiognomy of a mother's tree, which is very interesting :) On the other hand, with the eyes of my imagination, I see that in a moment 1/3 of the crew of this forum will starting to cultivate plinia ;)

You and hundreds of others are interested in those, but I would be very surprised if you're able to get scions like those shipped to germany unless you're volunteering to pay a truly excessive premium for it.

Hello everyone,

I just wanted to drop in and say I love you.

And I wish I had the energy to respond to every email inquiry, but I don't.

I choose to run a small operation by myself with no employees for now, and want to produce as many trees as I can.   I have been doing this full time for a while now, 110% dedicated to Plinias and rare fruit trees...and I have no intentions of slowing down.

For now, I will be selling on ebay, mostly through the auction process (I will post a link to my ebay store below).

Soon i hope to get my website revamped, and also maybe hire a friend to field my email inquiries, and help ship.

In the meantime, there seems to be some amazing new sources for grafted Plinias popping up to help satisfy demand.  Most of them are in FL, TX, and CA, and are people I've known for years, or personally have met, and i think highly of them all...be sure to check out some other nurseries.  (if you are grafting Plinias -or rare fruit-, and have supported my nursery in the past, go ahead a post a shout out to me here, so people can find you, and your products.  I will allow you to post once to get your name out to my customers).

Once again, i just wanted to drop in, and express my love for everyone who has been so excited and supportive over the years....i can't think of any other hobby/profession/past time, that has the capability of bringing so many people together, from so far around the world, and of so many languages/cultures, and age groups.  I'm so thankful to know you all, and to have the opportunity to share ideas, and food with you. 

I don't think of rare fruit growing as a hobby, or even a profession, it's more a way of living, and i think more people every day are seeing the value in growing their own food, and keeping fruit trees, which are in a sense, appreciating assets.

I'm really excited to share some more ideas, and rare plants with you soon.  I have many new varieties I've selected that are being evaluated, and slated for release!! 

Yours truly,


Prince of Plinia

first grafted Plinia sp. "Anomaly" to be offered for auction:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/-/192914628039

Grafted Plinia sp. "Anomaly" sold for $ 860
$ 1,000 did not break, but it's still a good result.

$860 is insanity!  I guess some people really, really, really like Plinia.

At least Plinia is tasty!  I remember people buying Phrag. kovachii for 10 times that just a few years ago... Not to mention the whole tulip-bulbs story :)
Also, well deserved Adam for great work with Plinias!

Adam, we love and support your work.

Adam posted earlier that he doesnít have time to reply to emails so youíll just have to keep your eyes out for his EBay auctions if youíre looking for something.

I just won his EBay auction for a Cambuca, Iím so excited! You rock Adam!

Adam, thank you for your dedication and hard work to please your customers, I have had first hand experience buying from Adam both privately and via eBay in the past. The guy is a pleasure to deal with, and quick to take care of any issues. I have purchased many rare Plinia scions, rare Garcinia plants and seeds and I am very satisfied every time.

BIG THANK YOU!! without you my collection would be so boring ..

Thanks,
Jozeph
