I have two seedlings are doing OK under the tree shade for 2 years, and they grow super slow.

it could be a good rootstock for purple mangosteen.

Received them on on Monday.  Even though UPS took a week to deliver and the package is smashed.  As of today they are doing great.  Great seller...

It will be.  Passion fruit needs it's own trellis.

Can you share a picture of the fruit?

Have you ever tried white pomegranate? Seed is very soft and the flesh is semi transparent. No tart, only sweet. I got a few only or I would sell it to you.

I have this variety from one of the forum member and I grafted couples of scions on my tree.


I have 2  Parfianka trees over 6ft tall ,thumb- finger size trunk. They are single trunk were trained to be tree form to save space than bushy tree. Each tree in one gal pot for better transportation and planting.  They were propagated from fruiting mother plant, so they should fruit soon with your good care. 75$ each + you pay actual shipping costs  handling

Thank for your offer.  I have the trees already.  I am looking for fruits right now.

LA doesnt have pomegranates in store? I have eversweet pomegranate on my tiny 4 ft tree.

The store in LA only have wonderful pomegranates which the seeds are hard.  I don't mind to buy them for juice, but not for eat them fresh.  Parfianka or any soft seeded varieties will be perfect for eat them in fresh.  I have total of 12 trees that are growing in pots, but they are small and only few fruits right now.  I think I ate over 100 fruits last year.  Looking to see anyone willing to sell them here.



I want to buy Parfianka Pomegranate fruits or any type of pomegranate.  Please let me know if you have any for sell.

Here is my red one, also sweet and yummy. Im harvesting the seeds to grow seedlongs.

I have a tree that produces the similar fruits like your tree.  The fruits are very good, a lot of time I picked them when they are yellow-green.  Fully ripe is too sweet. 
I am thinking about chop it down, due to the fruits are too small and too many making a mess on my yard.

My wampee tree is doing better every year.  More fruits and taste is better every year.

Are  these sweet? Sell me some more seeds!! ;D ;D ;D

Sorry, I finish all of them last month.  I don't have any of them anymore.  It is a good balance of sweet and sour with citrus favor. It is like jello

I recently planted taiwanese pink guava that looks like on your picture. Plant those seeds! My white asian guava fruited on the second year from seed.

I will plant them, hope they come out true.  They are very hard to find here

I brought a box of the taiwanese red Ruby guava.  They are delicious, crunchy, Juicy, less seeds, balance sweet and sour and not to hard, good for old man like me.  Guava flavor and firmness are lesser than the crystal, still good.  One of the best guava, the owner told me red Ruby is very productive.

I think I found the answer. 

From:. Wikipedia

"Leucocoprinus birnbaumii is a common find in greenhouses and potted plants all over the world having been spread by human activity.[44] When Europeans started exploring the tropics and bringing back exotic plant species for study or cultivation they were unwittingly bringing fungal hitchhikers back with them in the soil. The original classification of this species from a greenhouse in England in the late 1700s[45] and the observation from the early 1800s[15] in Prague which gave it the name birnbaumii demonstrate how long this species has been present in Europe. Despite this tropical species likely being unable to survive in these countries in the wild due to the cold temperatures it continues to spread via human activity. The heat and humidity of greenhouses or indoor plant pots evidently creates a habitat in which this species can thrive with garden centres and nurseries serving as hubs to distribute L. birnbaumii all over Europe. Botanical gardens serve as another means of spreading as visitors may unknowingly collect spores on their clothes and bring them into their homes.[31]

However when L. birnbaumii mushrooms suddenly appear in a plant pot which had shown no previous signs of them it doesn't mean the fungus has only just been introduced. Due to the length of time the mycelium requires to grow, it is more likely that the fungus was always present in the soil from the moment the plant (or compost used) was acquired and that the conditions for it to fruit have only recently been met. Mushroom production will occur when the moisture content of the soil and humidity of the air is adequate. Even when no mushrooms are visible the fungus may still be alive and thriving in the soil waiting for the next opportunity to fruit.

As a saproptrophic species L. birnbaumii is harmless to plants. The presence of this fungus in the soil may serve to improve the quality of it as it can help to break down organic matter and provide nutrients that the plants require.[39] However if the mushrooms are appearing regularly it can be a sign that the soil is too moist and that the plant may be being over-watered. Whilst L. birnbaumii itself is harmless to plants, the high moisture conditions in which it fruits can invite a host of other fungi and mold species which may harm the plant and result in root rot. In this regard L. birnbaumii can serve as a useful indicator to help ensure plants remain healthy.[46]"

Hi all,

I recently change my potting soil to Foxfarm.  I see some yellow fungi growing in the pot.  See pic.  It never happens when I used other brands.  Are they bad for the plants or good? 


I am able to obtain 2 air-layer with flowers on them.
