My bet is on Grimal

dear all,

i am looking for seeds of Casimiroa tetrameria/Wooly White Sapote, if you have or know the source, please let me know, thanks in advance!

Actually the Wooly sapote fruits of my tree and from a friend are seedless. Don't know if that is common.

I have some, but i can't go home indefinitely due to the virus :(

You can also try cracking the seed coat with pliers and place them in moist vermiculite, in a warm place. I had good germination by this method.

Crack’em and plant’em

Tried that many times with marollo, they all roth.

They grow well here, but i have plant windbreakers that reduce the salt and wind impact.

A good wind breaker specie for the conditions you described is the Metrosideros robusta Cun.

I leave you here a article (in Portuguese) that explains our methodology and species used:

Here are some species tolerant to salty soils:

You need some hard leaf species:

Hard leaf, soft skin fruit: Dovyalis caffra; Guavas; Eugenia Uniflora; Marula; Syzygium;

Hard leaf, thick skin fruit: Longans; Lychees; avocados; oranges; Mangos;

Pothassium chlorate

Here is a link with a file where it describes the procedure:


With annona seeds the best guarantee is to get them really fresh. Older seeds bigger gamble.

Hi fruit heads

Can I assume this is female? Or is it male with pollen on it??

Looks like a male one.

1) Mangos
2) Cherries
2.5) Annonas lol
3) Rambutan
4) Longan
5) Oranges

If fresh, just throw them in a good drainage germinating mix substract and give them heat.

All annonas seeds if fresh don't need anything special, besides Annona crassiflora, those are my criptonite   :o

I'm on the same situation with a big amount of money involved, but you have to relax and most importantly always pay by paypal or similar. Some sellers have to wait for the seeds to be shipped overseas. Try contact them through the facebook page if they have them, usually they reply much faster.

I often purchase fruit seeds from them. Always new listed seeds.

Had some issues in the past with rotten seeds that they wouldn't refund or replace.

But on the last orders they replaced the rotten seeds. Let's hope they keep it that way :)

I started purchase from them at 2014, at that period they offered nice plants with a good root growth. Now as they i suppose want make all the money they can at all cost, the offer week plants almost without roots and soil in the pots and without any refund policy (to islands). Not even mango's trees are surviving the trip.

Nevertheless they have great variety to offer, I just regret not purchasing more plants when they where at top shape.


really bad quality. I don´t want to speak about plant quality because I bought/payed for a plant and have got a unrooted cutting of bad quality. >:(

Never again.

I bought some annodium manni seeds from them and they all germinated. I think they only have fresh seed that come from Africa. All the others have low germination rate.

I don't understand why we keep getting postings like this.  This place has been discussed before (in page one of this string) where even customers in Europe got zero germination on tropical fruit seeds.  I got zero as well.  Only order from them if you are buying non-recalcitrant seeds or like to throw money away.  Prices are not so low if the seeds never germinate.

This is a very big shop and sells for low prices online.

I recommend this seller.

Done many transactions with Richard without any problem.

Seeds are fresh and well packed.
