Just wanted to give a quick update.
Just had the first final and I feel great about it. Thanks for the support!
The main reason is to update you guys that seller will ship no later than next Wednesday. I expect the seeds to arrive in about 2 weeks (around a week and a half from Brazil then another couple of days to me). So the seeds will arrive around Christmas? Not a good time still trying to figure out what is best. USPS is already screwing up my packages. Little worried about the seeds taking more time when I ship to you.

Well done! I'm sure you did great.

Everything arrived clean and germinating last time from André, though it did take twice as long due to mail issues at the time. However, end result was great! Everything is still alive and he was really cool to work with. Thanks for getting this going Ryan!

I now carry plants with my nursery that are a self fruitful female clone. It's likely the same clone that One Green World carries. I will also have seeds available in July when the fruit is in season.

Which is your nursery? Link?

My question is why don't the get eradicated if it is a noxious plant? Is there some benefit?

Unknown numbers of species and ecosystems rely on many "dangerous" plants. Many "toxic" plants have yielded pharmaceutical drugs (Chondrdendron tomentosum) and chemotherapeutic compounds (Catharanthus roseus) due to their bioactive components or that of their endophytes (seems to be the case with Taxus brevifolia). Less than 1 % of all plant species have been studied thoroughly for their potential medicinal benefits alone. Yet roughly 25% of medications in our local pharmacy contain active plant compounds.

I say let it grow.   ;)

"achetadomestica" has the best Muntingia offer in town (yellow and red varieties as well)

Kind regards,

Their clonal variety is supposedly self fertile.

Kind regards,

Weird fruit explorer (youtube) did a thing on this and had links to at least one farm selling them.

Sent a PM with my updated list.

I'm really look for good size sections because I hopefully want to propagate my own. I also may need somethign on the thicker side as Ill be using em as rootstock for thicker cacti.

The thickest sized ones I have found were Pereskia grandiflora...they also have an upright growth pattern. The least vine like when they get large. Not sure about rate of growth, but they may better support grafts. I heard pereskiopsis is better for speed of graft growth, but I haven't read anything about that.

I am interested in learning new strategies for germinating Sideroxylon species and any other facts about their cultivation and use. Particularly Sideroxylon grandiflorum and well as any North or South American species with edible fruit.

I saw that toptropicals just got some larger trees in if anyone is looking to grow them.


Can just use an app on the smartphone to translate the text to english by snapshot.

dude, I gotta get that app...what's it called?

I just caught this message. Try Google Translator it has built in OCR translate.

Absolutely! I use this all the time to translate research papers and other documents. I highly recommend it, but there is a limit to how many pages you can translate at once and sometimes text bleeds into the charts and photographs...but it's great to use as a reference along with the original text.

Yes, let's not wish it too cold here. My ultra tropical plants could use a mild La Niña winter.

You should have postponed your flight for a day or two in order to check out the Fruit and Spice Park as well as Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden. The fruit stand "Robert is Here" located near-ish to Miami may have them occasionally.

I also could not get the website to work

Seeds came promptly and in excellent condition with some of each species germinating en route! As usual I am very happy with my purchase.

What do you grow?

Looking to buy or trade for live plants of Posoqueria latifolia & Gnetum gnemon.

Please PM if anyone would be willing to trade or sell me one or two of each.

Absolutely. There wasn't a lot of information out there when i first started researching them. Germination and the initial seedling phase are the biggest hurdles. Seeds also lose viability fairly quickly so fresh is best. Mature trees are virtually pest free.

About a year and a half to 2 years old now. Seeds are very small and they take a while to grow initially. The mature trees are outside here year round in 9b while the seedlings and immature trees stay in one of the greenhouses over winter.

This species and I have a terrible relationship. I have been able to keep them alive for up to 3 years maximum, but it always ends in tragedy. Would love to hear that someone had a successful attempt.

Nauclea latifolia - African Peach --- 49.99 each plus shipping.

***If you buy 2 or more --- 42.99 each plus shipping.

Plants are in thick and reusable 4 x 4 inch pots and 7 - 10 inches tall.

Please PM me if interested.
