Fresh Kecil Wax Jambu Scions
« on: November 10, 2022, 08:26:06 PM »
Updated 1/7/2023: Kecil a wax jambu that originates from Frankie's Nursery in Hawaii. It is an aromatic, semi sweet jambu with a slight red blush on the end of ripened fruit. It is a very productive variety that sets two crops per year in San Diego.
$6/scion or 5 for $25 as this is a very hard to find variety. I won't sit on them for more than a week before putting them in soil to grow out for Spring.

I just sent out several batches of seeds and am now out of stock. I will be collecting more in two weeks (around November 28th). Ordering ahead of time will expedite the shipping process so the seeds don't sit on the counter longer than necessary. I am also willing to ship a fruit or two along with your order :)

Excellent seller! Cuttings were clean and fresh, seeds were starting to germinate, shipping was fast. Good value!

I am not selling fruit by the pound. I am selling fruits for $2/each in order to get the freshest seeds to those who want to grow them. Each fruit has 1-3 seeds in it so its a good deal if you want seeds.

Do you still have fruits available? Iíve been wanting to try this variety before purchasing a tree. I can do local pickup this weekend if you and the fruits are available!

Hey SD Dan,

PM me. There are not many fruits left on the tree at the moment but I will see what I can do. I will try to grab some more fruits either on Sunday or Monday.

Just wanted to let everyone know, I recently learned that PayPal is charging 3.49% (on total, including any taxes invoiced as well as shipping which makes no sense at all to me) + $0.49 on each transaction. I will be including these fees in the buyers invoice as I cannot eat them with my low margins. I also will not be including CA sales tax (7.75% that I report to the state) in the base price for my seeds/scions. So, expect higher invoiced prices on all transactions done through PayPal. I hate doing this and am open to other ways of doing sustainable online sales. Please reach out if you are a veteran seller that can give me some insight.

Broken down:
$10 Item
 +7.75% CA Sales Tax
=$10.78
 +$5 Shipping (No CA Sales Tax)
=$15.78
 +3.49% Overall PayPal Percentage-Based Fee
 +$0.49 Flat PayPal Fee
=$16.33 Final Invoiced Total

Only 4 left from the last trimming. I will pot them up tomorrow morning for rooting if I haven't received an order. Thanks!

We are starting to get more consistent lower temps along with this rain deluge so I am going to hold off on cutting new scions until mid-February to let the tree gain some vigor back. Have a great week everyone!
