Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Wanted mango seeds
« on: May 25, 2021, 08:27:13 AM »
Hi all,
So last year I posted requesting some seeds of the top mango varieties available in America to be sent to Australia. Had to put everything on hold due to Covid! But now I'm keen to pursue this further and finally knock the Kensington Pride off it's pedestal in Australia.

I have sourced scions of seed grown lemon zest, orange sherbet and sweet tart here in Aus and should be able to taste the fruit within a year or two!

With mango season underway in America I was wanting to add sugarloaf and kryptonite (aka kathy or k3) as I've read they both should produce poly seeds so chances are I can have a clone of the parent. Is anyone willing to help me out here and of course I'll pay for your troubles and also open to suggestions of other poly varities.


Tropical Fruit Discussion / Cherimoya pruning
« on: July 30, 2020, 10:06:52 PM »
Hi all,

Hope all my friends are staying safe during these times.

I'm after some advice on how to best prune this Cherimoya, which I'll then do similar on my other annonas. It's coming into the last month of winter in Australia and I believe the next few weeks would be a good time to prune. I'm looking at keeping the tree fairly compact and will plant in the ground at about 10-11 ft centres.


Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / American variety mango seeds
« on: May 10, 2020, 11:22:50 PM »
Hello all,

I want to see what all the debate is about regarding some of the well known American varieties of mangoes against some that are commonly grown here in Australia. Over here in Australia, the Kensignton Pride reigns king as probably the best if not one the best mango with others such as Kwan or sam rue do being up there, but I've read through many threads claiming other varieties easily trump the KP.

What I'm looking for is someone that could send me some mango seeds in the coming season of some of the best poly-embryonic mangoes. I believe varieties such as Lemon zest, Orange Sherbet, Sweet Tart are poly but I'm also open to suggestions.

I know it'll be years before I can compare but perhaps my current mangoes will be grafted over if these varieties are as good as what some claim. I'm happy to pay for the seeds.


Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Red annona seeds
« on: May 01, 2020, 12:48:21 AM »
I have for sale seeds from an annona which I've been told is a possible atemoya x reticulata. The flesh is firm right to the edges with no grittiness towards the skin. Seed count is very low, with about 15 seeds in a fruit that weighed 750 grams. The annona is sweet with the berry undertones that are found in good atemoyas. The seeds may not come true to type.

Please note- shipping out of Australia is expensive at the moment as only registered post can be utilised in this time. I can  quote though.

Seeds $2.50 each plus shipping. Minimum 5.
Have limited amounts as fruits didn't have much seed

Has anyone tried growing these and have any information on their cold tolerance?

 Supposedly garcinia humilus but many seem to disagree on that. Have posted photos of fruit to show where the seeds came from.

Seeds $1.50USD each. Minimum 10
Postage extra. Please note seeds are heavy so will give quotes for shipping prior to concluding a purchase.
Also I can't be held liable for customs seizing seeds. All payments to go through paypal so purchaser has recourse if seeds are taken.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Rare annona question
« on: January 16, 2020, 06:38:37 AM »
Hi all,
I have the option of obtaining what some might consider rarer amnonas, being cornifolia and spinescens. Both are grafted onto annona muricata rootstocks. My question is I live in a marginal climate for murricata and I don't believe it would be the best suitability for my area. Does anyone have any insight on how muricata performs as a rootstock especially in a climate that can get some cold? My zone in the American system would be considered a 10a and only see some real light frost on possibly 1 or 2 winter days.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Summer grafting
« on: December 27, 2019, 04:07:41 AM »
Hi all,
I'm receiving some atemoya and cherimoya scions and it's summer here in Aus. Does anyone have any recommendations on the best way to graft at this time of year?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Cherimoya varieties
« on: November 13, 2019, 12:41:49 AM »
Hi all,
First time poster from Australia.
Seeking some advice on Cherimoya varieties. I currently have a fino de jete and can get my hands on a 'campa' and 'bays' v ariety.  Does anyone have any experience with these two as I can't find much information on them
 I've been told by the seller that the campa is probably a variety from Chile if that helps at all.
