Hi, my name is Joe and I am a fruit addict. So much so that I decided to trek into the Amazon for 2 weeks to find new fruits to try and grow. First, I believe in giving back to the community. I decided I would hire local guides and visit local communities. I bought all the local goods for sell, where my wife now owns every hand made product made by the locals :). We tipped local kids to climb trees and traded bread and flour for fruit that grew near homes in the jungle. None of these fruit are rare, it's the Amazon! , however the season for Amazon fruit is a brief 2 to 3 week period and then they are gone until next year. So although the seeds are not rare, they are very limited and unless you want to go back to the Amazon and collect all the same fruits, then these seeds will not be offered for a while. Getting them back to the United States legally required investment and I am forming a partnership with a local business to hopefully offer seeds much cheaper in the future!
All seeds were harvested within the last three weeks, and each seed was hand cleaned by me.

What goes into the cost of the seeds?  Pricing is determined by difficulty to acquire by location and number of seeds acquired as well as difficulty in cleaning to pass inspection.

As a thank you and kick off I am offering a 10% off discount code. Use TFFLOVE

Thanks for supporting my new little seed and nursery store.

Inga sp. every pod was a combination of phenotypes. One side had vertical striations like Inga Edulis and the other side of bean was flat like Vera.

Nice job Joe, just one thing - seems like the picture for this one is showing a passiflora and not an inga: https://www.etsy.com/listing/1213388178/1-seed-of-inga-sp-if-you-grow-one-inga

Nice! I have trying to find perebia for a long time. How easy are they to germinate?
The best time to plant a fruit tree was 20 years ago. The next best time to plant one is now.

Don't know. Not sure if anyone in the US is growing it. When I posted the picture of the fruit on Facebook, no one could identify it. Most people thought it  was an Artocarpus SP. I finally ID'd with after pouring through field books. The field book I found it in... Fruit diet of Wooly monkeys in regenerative forest, lol.

Do you think the Inga sp you are offering has some cold tolerance?
