Welcome!

What do you want to grow? I don't think there are many tropical fruit nurseries in the Bay Area since it's not what grows natually there. The owner would spend a good amount of money trying to keep things alive and looking good to sell.

Our member Ethan lives somewhere up north I think.

The big box stores carry mango, banana, white sapote , Mamey sapote , guava , avocado from LaVerne nursery starting April or May and you can special order through them. I'm not sure there's a nursery focusing on sub tropical/ tropicals. What are you looking for?

Thanks for the replies, I mainly looking for the different varieties of cherimoya, sugar apple, longan and the black pearl wax Jambu to replace the one I lost due to the cold spell in December, we  had a period of about 10 days with temp in the 20s. I currently have an unknown variety of cherimoya, diamond river longan, a few fruiting dragon fruit plants, wampee and a couple of hakip lychee plants, they all survive well through the cold spell with the exception of the wax Jambu (forgot to move it in). Just love to get my hand on some more of the tropical fruit trees.
I'll contact Ethan and see if I can acquire a few plant from him.
I'd tried to grow from seeds  for the past few years, no problem with germination but when the plant get to about 6 to 8 inches tall they all start to have problems and eventually die back :(
Any idea why?
