Available now in the US now! ONLY 19 SEEDS AVAILABLE! Shipping to the US only! The freshest seeds of Mano de tigre (Duguetia stenantha) you will ever get in the US directly from the Amazon! I don't know if they have ever been offered before but probably this could be the first time these seeds are on the market in the US. I took the seeds out of a fresh fruit exactly a two weeks ago. Do not bargain the price please, I am offering exclusivity, freshness, and I took all the risk to bring the seeds safely into the US. You will not risk losing your money or the seeds in customs as these seeds all already in NYC. To name my price I also took into consideration the asking price of other rare south american duguetias oferred in the seeds' market by Sellami (seeds hunter website). The fruit tastes like zapote /  chupa chupa. Each seed is USD $35 plus shipping. If you want to buy 10 seeds or more we can see you get some discount. Payment through paypal or zelle. Interested please send me a private message. Thanks in advance

V. Sphaerocarpa grows in Colombia from 700 meters to 2000 meters above sea level.

5
I have my two vasconcellea sphaerocarpa plants, both are 22 inches high. These plants are over 6 months old so they should star flowering in the next 9 months in the right weather conditions. It produces a great fruit with lots of potential. Skin covering the seeds is sweet/acid, it feels great to feel the exploxion of flavor inside your mouth when you eat them. Fruits has a lot of edible meat to make sweets, it is sweet/acid as well. They defoliated due to cold here in NY but as you can see in the pics, they are eager to grow with the new shots coming up. I had them inside my house so they have not been exposed to extreme cold. If you are interested please send me a message with your zip code and we can work something out.

Back in Colombia obviously we don't plant vasconcelleas in pots. Here in the US due to space/weather conditions it's different. I would recommend to plant them in the biggest pots you could get instead of changing them over and over. If you let the plant develop good roots, it will reward you with good growth and fruits. Soil has to be loose, organic compost that can retain humidity. You have to be careful watering especially having them in pots. I tried to keep this plants water during the 2 months of winter that have passed, maybe once every two weeks.

Great offer, unfortunately currently don’t have the room for more plants! But I do have a question. How do you water them in the winter? I have always had a problem with root rot with papayas/related species. Also, do you do anything special with the soil?

I currently have two species of vasconcellea growing, about the size or slightly larger than what you’re offering. Had three, but all of those plants died to root rot. I got all of them about the size you’re offering. I’m scared of loosing them, already one of the 6 left is pretty much without leaves or a growing tip, looks like it’ll die soon. The others are growing slowly.

Before I get any more vasconcelleas I want to be successful with getting a few plants to flowering size. Any tips you may have? Thanks.

No, according to what I was told, with only one plant you get fruits. Obviously you have bigger changes having two plants for cross pollination. The skin covering the seeds is sweet/acid, its really nice to feel the explosion of flavor when the skin pops up in your mouth. Meat is really firm and abundant. Personally, sphaerocarpa it's the best vasconcellea for sweets (that's how it is used back in Colombia) due to is great amount of edible meat.

Do these need male and female trees like some papayas? Or are they self pollinating? Can you describe the taste of the fruit? Thanks

I doubt it since the seeds are over there right now and I will be leaving to Colombia in a few weeks and will stay there for a few months.   JW has been shipping out seeds from Colombia (not Ecuador) and they have arrived well, according to what he told me.

10
We don't have much information about the fruit. It was recently found in a small municipality by my friend. Luckily the seeds germinate in about 30 days.

A friend of mine found the rare annona deceptrix in a department (state) in the south of Colombia. Grows at 1600 meters above sea level. He describes the taste as being like soursop with sweet and acid notes, super juicy. He wants to sell his seeds and I will be helping him out here in the US to find costumers and get the payment via paypal or Zelle. He will be shipping the seeds directly from Colombia. Prices are as follows: 1-20 seeds $10 USD PER SEED, 21 seeds and up $9 PER SEED + Shipping & and handling. The first seeds he put to germinate, germinated in 30 days as you can see the picture with the first roots coming up. If you are really serious on buying seeds, feel free to contact me with the amount of seeds you want, place where you live and method of payment you want to use. My friend is a farmer and has kids to raise, so let's help him out and be the first to have seeds of this rarity in your hands and grow it out of its native ecosystem.

Finally you learned to differentiate Colombia and Columbia! Congratulations! What you are doing is not asking questions, you know very well what you are doing. Get a life a.....

What is your concern with my posts? If you are not interested in my plants mind your own business. It is up to people to chose what it is interesting to them, not your narrow ridiculous opinion. Get a life!

These are the first and only seedlings available in the US of the amazing lulo de páramo from Colombia. Fruit is acid in the outer meat and sweet like a good melon in the inside. This lulo is like no other you have tasted before. You will have the chance to try to fruit this lulo for the first time in the US! I am also offering seedlings of the big commercial lulo (please see pic where I show two lulos on my hand for size comparison). Both types of lulo have spikes, so if you care about getting quality fruit, you will get it with these two types of lulo. I can ship two plants in a medium flat rate box for $15, or 3-4 in a large flat rate box for $21. I have the last 12 units of each variety. $15 per plant + shipping! Payment via FB pay, Zelle or paypal. If you are really interested please send me a message with your zip code and # of seedlings you want.

How I am supposed to know if that supposedly happened many years ago?. I assume you have a historical record with pics to make sure it is the same solanum, so please post pics. Naranjilla is simply just another name for lulo in some latin american countries.

Thank you Kyle for getting them. Wish you the best on the growing process of this amazing lulo from the mountains of Colombia, now living a fruitful life in Hawaii for the first time  ;D

This is a new species of wild malimorfis which I found last year in a small municipality back in Colombia, called Anapoima. My family owns a house in a complex there and I found the plant hanging on a wall from a house in the street. The ecosystem present in this municipality is the dry forest ecosystem, which has been vastly affected by deforestation throughout Colombia. The plant has some unique characteristics that I have noticed while growing it. It grows in poor soil, it is resistant to high temperatures (can take 35 celcius or more with no problems), drought tolerant, grows extremely fast, and produces a lot of fruits. Fruits are golf size, sweet and will fall of from the plant when ripe. Leaves are elongated with pink veins, the stems of the leaves are pink as well (see pics) I have the last 10 seedlings left of this plant, as I already sold the rest i grew over the summer here in NYC. Price is $15 per plant + shipping. This might be your only chance to get your hands on this new species, as these are the only seedlings available in the US for sale. Payment paypal, Zelle or Facebook Pay. If you are interested please send me a message with your zip code and the number of seedlings you would like to buy. Thanks

It has. Show me please who is selling seedlings if you know, as I doubt people who bought at most 10 seeds are selling them. The ones who took care of their plants have them in their collections. And the country is called COLOMBIA. Thank you.

I have several seedlings for sale of this probably new species wild malimorfis from the endangered dry forest back in Colombia. Drought tolerant, grows in poor soil, can withstand high temperatures (a buyer in Los Angeles told me it withstood inside a greenhouse 55 degree celcius). Fruit is golf size ball, sweet when fully ripen. Seedlings are $15 plus shipping. These are the only seedlings of this specie available in the whole world. I will ship to any state in the US. If you would like to get one please send me a message. I do also have granadilla seedlings, two types of lulo, passiflora edulis (gulupa).













23
These are probably the only seedlings available in the US of vasconcellea sphaerocarpa and goudotiana. V. sphaerocarpa an endemic wild plant that grows in Colombia, used in sweets. For me the greatest wild mountain papaya in terms of amount of meat to make sweets, mermelade, etc. V. goudotiana my first discovery back in Colombia, when fully mature in the tree the inner white meat is soft and tastes like feijoa, the thin skin that covers the seeds tastes like passion fruit. A combination of these two wild mountain papayas would make for me the perfect mountain papaya variety. Quantities are limited. Price is $35 per plant + shipping & handling. Contact me if you are really interested. No negotation of prices. No seeds available. Thanks in advance.






















24
I tried both fruits and are tasty, no way you will be getting a crappy fruit for sure. And no, goudotiana does not need another plant next to it to produce as long as it is female.

25
Would you pay $35-$40 for seedlings of wild vasconcellea goudotiana and v. sphaerocarpa seedlings? 40-60 cms tall plants. Knowing that nobody has them available for sale in the US? Let me know what you think. What would be a good price for these beauties?. Thanks.
