Other than:

Fruitsy
John Travis Morton
Flying fox fruits

Are there any other reputable and active sellers on ebay that you would recommend?

I have a lot of success with etsy, you can look around quite a bit and there seems to be seller somewhere on the site for EVERYTHING, most of the time people have the $35 free shipping thing going so if they're a good shop you can get a lot without paying a ton. Etsy support is really good at getting you your money back if its the wrong plant/dead on arrival etc.

Small shops like to trade and stuff too, unless you have a reason to limit to ebay I'd try there

Do you have any sources on etsy for plinias or eugenias?

At this point there are a lot of people selling seeds and small seedlings of eugenias imported from south america, but likely have never tasted the fruit.  In a year or two I think you will start seeing prices drop and availability soar for these uncommon types as all the people who bought them lately start getting fruit and selling the seeds.  I am looking forward to seeing if any of these new hyped eugenias make tasty fruit.

Hahaha I agree! Lots of cool looking stuff out there but can we get it to fruit and is it tasty?!

I have no doubt they will fruit, the big question is "is it tasty?" :)

I have a bunch of seeds from fruit that I have tasted on my site. Highly recommend the campomanesia sp as I just got a video from the collector I was with. He found the field of campomanesia last year and sent seeds to a grower in So Paulo and it flowered in less than one year! Not to mention that the seeds are already germinating. Im sure there are plenty of buyers that can verify. It was a really good fruit.  The seeds I source I either collect myself or come  from the collectors themselves and at a
Minimum get a reliable taste report.

Oh I just bought some of those Campomanesia seeds from you and I'm pumped. Also bought some jabo seeds from you,  crazy good website!  What's your ebay seller name ? I can never seem to find sellers when I search for them.

hah, I already have an order en route from you, too late to combine shipping.  I didn't realize you had tried some of these, I assumed everybody was selling seeds from the same sources and relying on the same seller descriptions (ex. seedshuntershop is a common one, tradewinds another)

I think I'm about done collecting eugenias I haven't tasted yet.  At this point I'm getting fed up with these long-ass names and running out of labelling tape  :D

Will be more excited once I get them to fruiting.

Can't say I'm exactly reputable as I've just started, but I have a small shop on Etsy with some plants!
