Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Re: WANTED: Ice cream mango
« Last post by FloridaManDan on Today at 07:09:20 PM »
Try Tropica Mango Rare and Exotic Tropical Fruit Tree Nursery in Apache Junction for a grafted tree. You'll get fruit faster with a well-established grafted tree. They have a ton of varieties and you won't have to worry about shipping.

Neither, Sinaloa is free of Med Fruit fly I believe it's granted a special exception to the treatment rules.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Seeds Del Mundo dishonest business?
« Last post by pagnr on Today at 06:38:30 PM »
Always wondered how they can manage this kind of business selling Tropical fruit seeds collecting from around Surinam about 3 degrees N of the Equator and sending to an intermediary in Netherlands about 10 degrees South from the Arctic Circle and ship it back to the tropical or subtropical area customers. All by Airmail!

I was formerly an overseas member of Seed Savers Exchange, trading with USA members. Mainly dry stored vegetable seed, but no problems back then.
Also did some Tropical Fruit and Australian Native fruit seed collecting in Far North Qld and Cape York.
Some were mailed to other people in Australia, some were packed and transported.
Some went overseas.
Apart from some over zealous people at the front desk of the Post Office, who wanted to enforce rules they don't understand,
and a few Customs Officers / Seed Inspectors with a similar frame of mind, mostly it went well.

Hi Triphal,

Great question my friend. I also answered this question on our website but maybe it's a good idea to add this more prominent :-) We will do this asap.

Surinam was about 200-300+ years a colony of the Netherlands so there are special bonds between these 2 countries. There are living almost the same amount Surinam people in the Netherlands as in Surinam self haha. It's a real special thing because Surinam has only 500.000 inhabitants.

I'm living with my mother in the Netherlands. My mother is born in Surinam. My uncle, aunt and grandmother are still living there and we can sent packages to each other in a very fast way due to the special bonds between the countries with special shipping / airplane connections.

Also I'm often on family visiting. Right nog I'm in Surinam myself (very hot this period and very dry weather right now so less fruits and less seeds). I will take seeds and fruits with me to the Netherlands also. So delivery time to the Netherlands is even 9 hours! Faster then this is not possible I guess ;-) Great solution right.

This is why we can ship extremely fast. Fresh products can be in the Netherlands within 3 days if I'm not taking the seeds myself.

Why do we want to ship from the Netherlands and not from Surinam?
Surinam is a third world country and worldwide shipping is not completely possible. And if you can ship, it will take tooo long due to the infrastructure and the way things are arrange (better said not good arranged) over here.
In contrary The Netherlands has one of the best developed infrastructures in the world so shipping from the Netherlands through the whole world is the best thing to do. We are blessed with the bonds between both countries and blessed with family members in both countries who are doing this all together with passion for plants :-).

If you want to know more or if you want to call please sent an e-mail with your contact details. We will plan a phone call together my friend.

Talk to you soon amigo.

Cheers!



   Always wondered how they can manage this kind of business selling Tropical fruit seeds collecting from around Surinam about 3 degrees N of the Equator and sending to an intermediary in Netherlands about 10 degrees South from the Arctic Circle and ship it back to the tropical or subtropical area customers. All by Airmail! Thought of finding out their contact phone numbers in Netherlands and Surinam to enquire and assess their knowledge of the tropical fruit trees or bushes surrounding Surinam and how they gathered the seeds, stored, how they packed, how they mailed. Most important also is the TIME taken for these above processes.
   I have over eight (8) decades of keen interest in the Tropical and Subtropical fruit trees, bushes and vines and almost six (6) decades in the Temperate fruit trees, bushes and vines.
   Please note that I have never bought anything from them and I am not blaming or praising them. But just  eager to know how they do this delicate time consuming multinational transfer of Agricultural items (Tropical seeds)through International Customs, Courier and Postal departments.  Triphal

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Fruiting Shade Tree - Worth it?
« Last post by cdin12 on Today at 06:33:46 PM »
Ice Cream Bean, Igna, is a excellent shade tree on its own and the fruit is supposed to be tasty. Mine are little, so I can't comment on the fruit charastics your looking for but it is something worth considering.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Honey Kiss: New Growth Seems Sick
« Last post by Carbo on Today at 05:29:25 PM »
Honey Kiss mango, planted in ground last summer from 7 gallon pot.  It has had several growth flushes but the new leaves look like the pictures.  This is the most recent flush.  Previous ones have fallen off the tree.  Older leaves don't seem to have any problems.  Any ideas?
