When I started up-potting my plants last month, I realized that I would need to deaccession a few more plants from the collection, so I am selling off these extra plants. Most of these plants are relatively recent introductions to the US and are sometimes hard to find. These plants have been grown entirely organically (no Osmocote, unlike some of my other plants). These plants stayed healthy through the winter like champs (admittedly in a warm room with a grow light) and are now starting to put on some new growth. Most of these plants are likely root-bound and need to be up-potted, which you should probably do once they become acclimated to your growing area.

These plants have all been grown indoors under a plant light (they were taken outside into the sun only for the purpose of photographing them). They should be introduced to full sun conditions very gradually to prevent any leaf burn or other damage, particularly to their new growth.

These plants will be shipped using USPS Priority Mail with the shipping costs based on the size, weight, number of plants ordered, and buyer location. I will do what I can to save you money on shipping costs by making these plants as compact as possible for shipping without damaging them. They will not be shipped bare root; they will be shipped in their container with potting soil, as pictured (unless otherwise stated). I do not ship internationally. Buyers in California, Arizona, and Hawaii purchase plants at your own risk; I am not responsible if they are confiscated. I prefer shipping plants on Mondays to prevent them sitting in USPS facilities over the weekend.

I accurately describe and securely pack all my plants, as can be attested to by the various Forum members who have bought from me in the past.

Payment through PayPal.

Feel free to contact me with any questions you might have.

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Psidium Striatulum Seeds For Sale [SOLD]
« on: November 08, 2023, 11:29:18 PM »
There seems to be a good deal of interest in Psidium striatulum on the Forum right now, which is great because I think it is a fruit more people should grow, as I am. Since my Psidium striatulums fruited within the past few weeks, I have seeds available to fellow Forum members.

The price is $7.00 for 20 seeds. Free shipping for orders in the United States. No international shipping as I do not have the time to deal with onerous customs paperwork.

20 seeds should more than guarantee that you get multiple healthy plants.

I am not interested in trades, since I already have too many plants. ::)

I do not have an indefinite number of seeds, but enough for several people to order.

You can see photographs of my plants' fruits on the Psidium striatulum thread: https://tropicalfruitforum.com/index.php?topic=21523.msg504823#msg504823

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Queensland Fruit Fly Found in California
« on: October 29, 2023, 02:02:11 PM »
Fruit growers definitely don't need another pest here in the US, but we may have one. Queensland Fruit Fly has recently been found in Southern California, with a quarantine established in parts of Los Angeles and Ventura Counties to try and eliminate it before it can get established. Here's an article about it from Growing Produce: https://www.growingproduce.com/crop-protection/insect-control/another-exotic-pest-find-in-california-say-gday-to-the-queensland-fruit-fly/

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Rare Fruit Books For Sale
« on: September 20, 2023, 11:45:51 PM »
Weeding is not just for plants, it is also for libraries, and I am weeding out a few extra books from my fruit growing library.

USPS Media Mail shipping is included in the price for these books. I will consider shipping them internationally if there is no interest among any American buyers with the international shipping cost to be covered by the buyer. A couple of these books are of a reasonable weight and will not cost an exorbitant amount to ship internationally, but The Encyclopedia of Fruit & Nuts is extremely heavy and shipping from the United States overseas would likely be prohibitively expensive. Its shipping is expensive enough within the United States.

I only accept PayPal.

These books will be securely packed and promptly shipped once payment is received with a tracking number provided after they are shipped.

I only have one copy of each of these books, so it is first come, first served.





The Encyclopedia of Fruit & Nuts was edited by Jules Janick and Robert E. Paull and published in 2008 by CABI (Centre for Agriculture and Bioscience International). It is a hardcover, no dust jacket as issued, that measures 9x11.25 in. (226x284 mm.) with xviii+954 pages plus 20 pages of plates. The ISBN-13 number is 9780851996387. The text is in English, and it is a text-heavy book, illustrated by botanical line drawings and a color plate section of photographs. For whatever reason, CABI did not give this book a table of contents, but my photographs of various pages should give you an idea of the book's contents and how they are arranged.

Book description from the rear cover: “This major reference work provides comprehensive coverage of botanical and horticultural information on temperate, subtropical and tropical fruits and nuts of economic significance. Coverage is also given to palms, cacti and common fruit often thought of as vegetable crops. Containing almost 300 entries, topics covered include history and origins, ecology, breeding and genetics, distribution, uses and nutritional composition. Arranged alphabetically by family and species, each entry is followed by a selected bibliography to aid further reading on the topic. Entries are illustrated with figures, tables and graphs as well as colour photographs accompanying the major fruit crops. Drawing on the expertise of over 100 international specialists, this encyclopedia will be an invaluable and informative reference source for students and researchers in horticulture, pomology, botany and plant ecology.”

Condition: This book is in overall good condition. The hardcover boards have some corner bumping, particularly at the base of the spine, which has caused creasing and small surface tears, as well as there being a 1.25 in. (30 mm) long surface cut on the edge of the spine and rear cover, but the boards have no stains or other major damage. The binding is strong and intact. The interior is clean and unmarked with no writing, highlighting, or underlining and has no tears, dog-eared pages, stains, mold, or other major damage. The page edges have no remainder mark, foxing, stains, or any major damage.

The price for this book is $150 $135. SOLD

My opinion: An excellent book. The reason I’m selling this copy is because I have another copy. Although somewhat geared towards agricultural professionals, it is not a difficult read, no different than Julia Morton’s Fruits of Warm Climates, which I would put it on par with as far as essential fruit books to own. The major fruits get more coverage, and you are not going to find any obscure Eugenias in it, but at nearly 1000 pages, there isn’t a more comprehensive fruit book that has ever been published. Its comprehensiveness is matched by its original price tag of $390, though CABI let it go out-of-print a few years ago, content to sell eBooks at an even higher price. Although this copy is not in perfect condition, it is still a great reference copy from a reliable seller at a price lower than other comparable copies.



Perennial Edible Fruits of the Tropics: An Inventory was written by Franklin W. Martin, Carl W. Campbell, and Ruth M. Rubertι and published in 1987 by the United States Department of Agriculture. It is Agriculture Handbook No. 642. It is a softcover that measures 8.5x10.875 in. (215x275 mm.) with 247 pages. No ISBN number. The text is in English, and it is a text-heavy book, illustrated by black-and-white photographs. Photographs of a few pages will give you an idea of the book's contents and how they are arranged.

Book description from the inside front cover: “The edible fruits of the Tropics are many in number, varied in form, and irregular in distribution. They can be categorized as major or minor. Only about 300 Tropical fruits can be considered great. These are outstanding in one or more of the following: Size, beauty, flavor, and nutritional value. In contrast are the more than 3,000 fruits that can be considered minor, limited severely by one or more defects, such as very small size, poor taste or appeal, limited adaptability, or limited distribution. The major fruits are not all well known. Some excellent fruits which rival the commercialized greatest are still relatively unknown in other parts of the Tropics and should be promoted. Introducing new fruits into a country is often difficult, however, and must be done legally. Obtaining information on the fruits and their sources is a first step, and this publication provides much of that information. This publication also lists minor fruits as completely as can be done with the present state of knowledge.”

Condition: This book is in good condition. “Weed Science Lab” is written on the front cover, but there are no other signs that this was a library book. The softcovers have the aforementioned writing, light soiling to the rear cover, a light cup ring to the front cover, and light edgewear, including very light creasing to the front cover along the spine and at the fore edge corners, but the softcovers have no tears or other major damage. The spine is not creased; the binding is strong and intact. The interior is clean and unmarked with no writing, highlighting, or underlining and has no tears, dog-eared pages, stains, mold, or any major damage. The page edges have no remainder mark, foxing, stains, or any major damage.

The price for this book is $45 $40.

My opinion: Still a nice resource, despite it being an older book. A few names and taxonomic relationships have been changed over the years, but I was surprised how much is still unchanged today, at least 99%. The minor fruits get a short shrift, with those just getting a scientific name, common name, location, and use. The major fruits get terse but valuable descriptions. The value of this book is in browsing and discovering new plants to add to one’s collection, something I’ve done many times. I’m not adding much to my collection currently or for the foreseeable future, which is why I’m willing to let this book go. Although this copy is not in perfect condition, print copies of this title are very rare, and it is still a great reference copy from a reliable seller at a price lower than any other copy online.



Tropical Forests and Their Crops was written by Nigel J. H. Smith, J. T. Williams, Donald L. Plucknett, and Jennifer P. Talbot and published in 1992 by Comstock Publishing Associates, a division of Cornell University Press in Ithaca, New York. It is a hardcover that measures 6.5x9.625 in. (164x244 mm.) with xvi+568 pages. The ISBN-10/ISBN-13 numbers are 0801427711/9780801427718. The text is in English, and it is a text-heavy book, illustrated by black-and-white photographs. Photographs of the table of contents and a couple of pages will give you an idea of the book's contents and how they are arranged.

Book description: “The tropics are the source of many of our familiar fruits, vegetables, oils, and spice, as well as such commodities as rubber and wood. Moreover, other tropical fruits and vegetables are being introduced into our markets to offer variety to our diet. Now, as tropical forests are increasingly threatened, we face a double-fold crisis: not only the loss of the plants but also rich pools of potentially useful genes. Wild populations of crop plants harbor genes that can improve the productivity and disease resistance of cultivated crops, many of which are vital to developing economies and to global commerce. Eight chapters of this book are devoted to a variety of tropical crops―beverages, fruit, starch, oil, resins, fuelwood, fodder, spices, timber, and nuts―the history of their domestication, their uses today, and the known extent of their gene pools, both domesticated and wild. Drawing on broad research, the authors also consider conservation strategies such as parks and reserves, corporate holdings, gene banks and tissue culture collections, and debt-for-nature swaps. They stress the need for a sensitive balance between conservation and the economic well-being of local populations. If economic growth is part of the conservation effort, local populations and governments will be more strongly motivated to save their natural resources. Distinctly practical and soundly informative, this book provides insight into the overwhelming abundance of tropical forests, an unsettling sense of what we may lose if they are destroyed, and a deep appreciation for the delicate relationships between tropical forest plants and people around the world.”

Condition: This book is in good condition. Ex-library with some library markings: a spine label, library stamps on the top page edge, and library stamps and barcode remnants on the inside covers. The dust jacket is missing (though there seems to be some dispute whether this book originally had one). The hardcover boards have light rubbing at the corners but no tears, creases, stains, or any major damage. The binding is strong and intact. The interior is mostly clean and unmarked with no writing or highlighting but with some pencil underlining in the mango section (as well as the aforementioned library markings) and has no tears, dog-eared pages, stains, mold, or other major damage. The page edges have the aforementioned library stamps but no remainder mark, foxing, stains, or other major damage.

The price for this book is $15. SOLD

My opinion: A great look at the ecology and anthropology of tropical fruits. It is not a growing guide in any way, which is why I am willing to sell it. However, the very detailed chapters on cacao and avocado (nearly 70 pages combined on various aspects of history, breeding programs, uses, etc.) are worth the purchase price alone to those interested in those fruits. Many other major fruits are also discussed at length. Although this copy is not in perfect condition, it is still a great reference copy of an interesting out-of-print book from a reliable seller at an affordable price.

My plant sale last month went well, so I am selling off a few more of my extra plants. Some of these are relatively common plants, others are a little harder to find. With the exception of some Osmocote fertilizer, these plants have been grown organically. Some of the plants do not look perfect but all are healthy. Some of these plants are root-bound and need to be up-potted, which you should probably do once they become acclimated to your growing area.

These plants have all been grown in a partly sunny location. They should be introduced to full sun conditions gradually to prevent any leaf burn or other damage.

These plants will be shipped using USPS Priority Mail with the shipping costs based on the size, weight, number of plants ordered, and buyer location. I will do what I can to save you money on shipping costs by making these plants as compact as possible for shipping without damaging them. They will not be shipped bare root; they will be shipped in their container with potting soil, as pictured (unless otherwise stated). I do not ship internationally. Buyers in California, Arizona, and Hawaii purchase plants at your own risk; I am not responsible if they are confiscated.

I securely pack all my plants. Ask TnTrobbie about his Plinia rivularis’s miraculous survival after being lost by the US Postal Service for three weeks.

Payment through PayPal.

Scientific Name (Common Name) – Number of Seedlings Available – Seedling Size (Pot Height Not Included) – Seedling Age – Price Per Plant
Also included is where I purchased the seeds.


Carissa macrocarpa (Natal Plum) – 1 – 12” tall – 2 years – $10 SOLD
Purchased from Trade Winds Fruit. Plant is leggy from being grown in too much shade and will need to be staked up until that abates.


Diospyros inconstans (Marmelinho) – 1 – 3” tall – under 1 year – $35
Purchased from a fellow Tropical Fruit Forum member.


Eugenia repanda (Pitanga-Jambo) – 1 – 15” tall – 2 years – $55 SOLD
Purchased from Trade Winds Fruit.


Garcinia hombroniana (Seashore Mangosteen) – 1 – 4” tall – over 1 year – $20 SOLD
Purchased from Farwell Fruit Farm. Tip burn to a few leaves, either from an issue with city water or from getting slightly too much sun this spring.


Garcinia macrophylla (Pungara/Bacuripari) – 1 – 4” tall – under 1 year – $50 SOLD
Purchased from a fellow Tropical Fruit Forum member.


Hylocereus megalanthus (Yellow Dragon Fruit) – 3 – 8”-11” long – 2 years – $8
Seeds from a commercial variety of Yellow Dragon Fruit.


Manilkara triflora – 1 – 5” tall – over 1 year – $55 SOLD
Purchased from a Tropical Fruit Forum member.


Myrciaria floribunda (Rumberry/Guavaberry) Group Pot – 5 plants in 1 pot – 2"-6" tall – Sold as a Group – $60
Myrciaria floribunda seeds are notorious for having a poor germination rate, something that has been discussed on this Forum by myself and others. When I purchased these seeds from a fellow Forum member in late 2020, a few came up quickly that winter and a few more came up gradually in the spring and summer of 2021. Most of them, about a dozen seeds, did absolutely nothing, so I took them out of their seed starting tray and placed them in this group pot. I kept it watered but generally paid no attention to it. In the fall and winter of 2022, four seeds germinated, and at the end of April of this year, a fifth seed germinated. Over two years after first being planted! So, this pot contains those five plants plus all the other seeds I threw in there in 2021 (6 to 9 ungerminated seeds) which may or may not still be viable. It goes to show that you should never give up on Myrciaria floribunda seeds. I ended up with a decent germination rate after all; it just took over two years.


Plinia aureana (White Jaboticaba) – 1 – 10” tall – 2 years – $20 SOLD
Purchased from a Tropical Fruit Forum member.


Plinia coronata (Restinga Jaboticaba) – 1 – 14” tall – 2 years – $40 SOLD
Purchased from a Tropical Fruit Forum member.


Plinia hybrid (Scarlet/Escarlate Jaboticaba) – 1 – 6” tall – 1 year – $15 SOLD
Purchased from a Tropical Fruit Forum member.


Plinia rivularis (Guaporeti) – 1 (plant on the left in the photo) – 7” tall – 2 years – $20 SOLD
Purchased from a reputable eBay seller. Due to a lack of rain in my area, I had to water them with city water for a while. That caused tip burn to the leaves. The new growth does not have that issue since I have been able to resume watering them with rainwater.


Plinia sp. (Jaboticaba Lujαn) – 1 – 10” long (longest branch, low spreading growth as pictured) – 1 year – $40 SOLD
Purchased from a Tropical Fruit Forum member.


Psidium guajava (Patillo Guava) – 7 6 – 11”-29” tall – 2 years – $10
Purchased from Trade Winds Fruit. The taller ones will require an extra oversized shipping charge or pruning to get under that charge, buyer’s choice.


Psidium guineense (Brazilian Guava) – 1 – 45” tall – 2 years – $50
Purchased from Trade Winds Fruit. Pot not included. It was repotted a few months ago, so it can be downpotted to save weight. It can also be pruned smaller for a lower shipping charge at the buyer’s request.


Tapura amazonica – 1 – 5” tall – under 1 year – $40
Purchased from a Tropical Fruit Forum member.

I am selling off some extra Myrciaria floribunda seedlings from my collection. Commonly known as Rumberry or Guavaberry, this species is in the Myrtaceae family and is an essential plant for any growers trying to build a strong Myrtaceae collection. Its growth habit and foliage is similar to other Myrciarias and Plinias, and it can be kept in a pot for quite a while as it is slow growing, particularly when young.

These seeds are from plants located in the U.S. Virgin Islands and were purchased from a fellow Tropical Fruit Forum member.

Although photographed in the sun, these plants have been grown in a mostly shaded location so far this spring and indoors under grow lights in the winter; they were moved into full sun briefly just for me to take photographs of them. They should be introduced to sunnier conditions gradually to prevent any leaf burn or other damage.

These plants will be shipped using USPS Priority Mail with the shipping costs based on the size, weight, number of plants ordered, and buyer location. I will do what I can to save you money on shipping costs without damaging them, but these plants are small, so thankfully the USPS's oversized package charges should not apply. They will not be shipped bare root; they will be shipped in their containers, as pictured. As anyone here on the Forum who has ordered from in the past knows, I pride myself on packing plants very securely. I do not ship internationally. Buyers in California, Arizona, and Hawaii should purchase plants at your own risk; I am not responsible if they are confiscated.

Payment through PayPal.

Myrciaria floribunda Individual Plants – 2 plants 1 plant – Sold Individually
Smaller Plant (on the Left) is 4" tall – $22
Larger Plant (on the Left) is almost 7" tall – $30
These plants both germinated in 2021. Both have remained small but are starting to branch out, a sign (at least based on what I have seen with my other plants) that they are about to start growing at a faster (but still fairly slow) rate.

I am growing several varieties and species of Plinias, Myricarias, and Eugenias. For almost every species or variety, I have at least two plants, the heir and the spare as one might say. But as one can see in the news, spares can sometimes become troublesome. ;) In my case, the trouble comes from the amount of space growing two of everything takes; my "ark" just isn't big enough right now.

So, my question is can I expect to get good fruit production if I only keep one plant of each of my Plinia, Myrciaria, and Eugenia species? I know that different varieties of the same species should have no difficulties with cross-pollination, but what about cross-pollination among different species? Will a Plinia nana and a Plinia rivularis be able to pollinate each other? How about a Eugenia repanda and a Eugenia involucrata? Or a Myrciaria floribunda and Myrciaria glazioviana? There are conflicting reports both online and on the Forum, particularly about Eugenias, so I would appreciate if anyone has a definitive answer.

I have a copy of Fruit in Brazil available for sale if anyone is interested.

Fruit in Brazil was written by Helena Tassara with photographs by Silvestre Silva and published in 1996 by Empresa das Artes Projetos e Ediηυes Artνsticas Ltda. in Sγo Paolo, Brazil. It is a hardcover with dust jacket that measures 9.25x11.5 in. (235x293 mm.) with 236 pages. The ISBN-10/ISBN-13 numbers are 8585628200/9788585628208. The text is in English and is fully illustrated by many large, exquisite color photographs. There is a Portuguese edition of this title that is much more commonly available than this English edition. Photographs of the table of contents and a couple of pages will give you an idea of the book's contents and how they are arranged.

This book is in overall good condition. The dust jacket has some rubbing and scratches to the surface and some edgewear, including a very light stain at the bottom edge of the rear cover, light creasing at the head and base of the spine, and very small, 1/4" long tears at the base of the spine, but the dust jacket has no other major damage. The hardcover boards have light bumping along the edges but no tears, stains, or other major damage. The binding is strong and intact. The interior is unmarked with no writing, highlighting, or underlining and has no tears, dog-eared pages, stains, mold, or any major damage. The page edges have no remainder mark, foxing, stains, or any major damage.

The price for this book is $50.

USPS Media Mail shipping included in the price. I will consider shipping it internationally if there is no interest among any American buyers with the international shipping cost to be covered by the buyer, but the book is rather heavy and shipping from the United States overseas would likely be fairly expensive.

I only accept PayPal.

This book will be securely packed in a box and promptly shipped once payment is received with a tracking number provided after it is shipped.

I only have one copy, so it is first come, first served.

Griffith Review, an Australian journal, has an article about blueberry breeding and production in Australia in their latest issue, Number 78. The article is titled "Big Blueberry" and is by Nicole Hasham. The parts I found very interesting were about Ridley Bell of Mountain Blue Orchards and his decades-long breeding program for creating improved blueberries. Hopefully, someday (probably once his patent expires), his Eureka variety will be available for home growers in the US.

[Photos Coming Soon]

I was able to clear out some growing space with my plant sale this summer, but I still need to clear out a bit more space. So, I am offering for sale some of my extra plants, many of which were not offered for sale this summer, as I continue to winnow the collection to a more manageable number (if you consider the low hundreds manageable).

I am offering them here on the forum first. I will be listing these on eBay if there is no interest in them on here.

These plants have been grown organically, with organic pest control and fertilizer with the exception of a few plants which have been fertilized using Osmocote. Some of these plants were up-potted this summer, others are root-bound and will need to be up-potted in the near future, which you should do once they become acclimated to your growing area.

These plants will be shipped using USPS Priority Mail with the shipping costs based on the size, weight, number of plants ordered, and buyer location. I have had people contact me in the past about shipping using UPS, which can be less expensive for larger plants after the USPS’s recent price increases for Priority Mail. I am less familiar with using UPS but will do what I can to save you money on shipping costs. These plants will not be shipped bare root; they will be shipped in the containers pictured unless otherwise noted. I do not ship internationally. Buyers in California, Arizona, and Hawaii purchase plants at your own risk; I am not responsible if they are confiscated.

Payment through PayPal.

Feel free to contact me with any questions you might have.

The sibling plant of the larger Escarlate I have for sale. I thought it was simply another stem off the larger Escarlate until I repotted it earlier this summer and discovered it was a separate plant. Although stunted from having to compete with its larger sibling, it should grow nicely now that it is potted (and sold) separately.

The CCPP (Citrus Clonal Protection Program) at UC Riverside decided to celebrate reaching the program's landmark 1000th variety by adding a landmark tree to their collection: the Mother Orange Tree at Bidwell's Bar. I am somewhat surprised it had not already been added to the CCPP's collection for its historical significance, even though the tree is just a type of Mediterranean sweet orange. But, it is certainly a survivor. The variety is labeled as "Bidwell's Bar."

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Just Someone Else Selling Plants
« on: June 13, 2022, 02:35:04 AM »
Just like last summer, I have too many plants and need to clear out some space. So, I am selling off some of my extra seedlings/plants. Some of these are relatively common plants, others are hard to find (such as Antidesma dallachyanum and Pouteria glomerata) and difficult to germinate (Myrciaria floribunda and Nauclea xanthoxylon). These plants have been grown organically, with organic pest control and fertilizer with the exception of a few plants which have been fertilized using Osmocote. Some of the plants do not look perfect but all are healthy. Just about all these plants are root-bound and need to be up-potted with some light fertilizing, which you should do once they become acclimated to your growing area.

Although photographed in the sun, these plants have all been grown either in a mostly shady location or indoors under grow lights; they were moved into the sun very briefly just for me to take photographs of them. They should be introduced to sunnier conditions very gradually to prevent any leaf burn or other damage.

These plants will be shipped using USPS Priority Mail with the shipping costs based on the size, weight, number of plants ordered, and buyer location. The US Postal Service’s recent price increase on Priority Mail means that tall plants are more expensive than they were last summer. I will do what I can to save you money on shipping costs by making these plants as compact as possible for shipping without damaging them. They will not be shipped bare root; they will be shipped in a container with potting soil, though they may be down-potted to reduce weight. I do not ship internationally. Although I live in an area free of greening and other citrus pests, my citrus plants still cannot be shipped to the citrus states and territories due to USDA regulations. Buyers in California, Arizona, and Hawaii purchase plants at your own risk; I am not responsible if they are confiscated.

Payment through PayPal.

Feel free to contact me with any questions you might have.

Purchased from Adam Shafran at Flying Fox Fruits, these are from a batch of Novak, ESALQ, and Otto Andersen seeds that he lost the label to, so he sold them as generic Plinia phitrantha “Costada” jaboticabas. Of course, given all the Plinia pollen around his property, who knows exactly what type of jaboticaba these will become. They are the same age, the small one has always grown very slowly.


Plinia rivularis (Guaporeti) – 2 – 6-10” tall – over 1 year – $35

My day job is in e-commerce, which is just a buzzword for saying I sell things online. Not plants, usually, except for extra plants I have offered here on the Forum and on eBay. But because I sell online, I recently received an alert about the impending US Postal Service rate increase, which looks like it might affect many people who sell plants (among other things).

Here is the summary provided about that rate increase:

Quote
USPS rate changes effective April 3, 2022

As a part of 2022 rate increases announced by USPS late last year, new fees will take effect for some USPS products and services starting April 3, 2022. Below is an overview of the USPS shipping services increases.


Non-standard fees:

Additional fees will apply when package dimensions exceed USPS sortation specifications and require manual sorting. These fees will apply to Retail Ground, Priority Mail, Priority Mail Express, Parcel Select Ground, and First Class Package Service.

Packages that exceed 22 inches but are not greater than 30 inches in length: Add $4.00 per package
Packages that exceed 30 inches in length: Add $15.00 per package
Packages that exceed 2 cubic feet (3,456 cubic inches): Add $15.00 per package
A maximum of two non-standard fees may be assessed for a package.


Dimensional non-compliance fees:

An additional $1.50 fee will apply to packages greater than 1 cubic foot (1,728 cubic inches) or 22 inches in length for Retail Ground, Priority Mail, Priority Mail Express, and Parcel Select Ground when:

Dimensions provided are inaccurate
Dimensions are not provided

I talked to the postal clerk at my local post office about these increases. She was not 100% percent positive how these fees would be applied, but was 99% sure that some of the plants I had shipped in the past would have had these fees applied to them, since they were in long, skinny boxes about 36" long (Forum members who have ordered plants from me in the past know that my taller plants are shipped in boxes that look like square poster tubes).

Because these new fees are not an increase in the base shipping cost, they flew under the radar when they were first announced a few months ago. I did not notice them immediately. But, these new fees could have a substantial effect on plant sellers and collectors, since a great many plants are shipped in boxes which require manual sorting - i.e. in anything other than select types of flat-rate boxes. And, according to my postal clerk, even some of those require manual sorting and would be subject to these new fees.

This fee increase might be something for people here on the Forum to keep in mind when buying and selling plants once it comes into affect in April.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Puebla Avocado Article
« on: February 21, 2022, 06:28:25 PM »
I came across an article published yesterday, February 20, in the Modesto Bee about a woman's 55-year-old Puebla Avocado tree, which is likely in peril of being cut down as the land it grows on is for sale. Specialty Produce in San Diego formerly bought and marketed the fruit of this Modesto tree. I am not an avocado expert, so I do not know if the journalist got all the facts right about this variety. What I do know is that it might be worth it for some growers in the area to try and acquire some scions off the tree, at the least, to preserve it.

The article is titled, "Property with rare avocado tree has fascinating back story. And it’s almost for sale" and is at this link: https://www.modbee.com/opinion/garth-stapley/article258424913.html

I have a copy of Palmeiras Brasileiras e Exσticas Cultivadas available for sale if anyone is interested.

Palmeiras Brasileiras e Exσticas Cultivadas was written by Harri Lorenzi, Hermes Moreira de Souza, Jesus Tadeu de Medeiros Costa, Luiz Sιrgio Coelho de Cerqueira, and Evandro Ferreira and published in 2004 by Instituto Plantarum de Estudos da Flora Ltda. in Nova Odessa, Brazil. It is a hardcover (no dust jacket, as issued) that measures 8.625x12.125 in. (220x307 mm.) with 432 pages. The ISBN-10/ISBN-13 numbers are 8586714208/9788586714207. The text is entirely in Portuguese and is fully illustrated in color. The page layout is the same as Harri Lorenzi's other books. It is stamped with the number 005956 on the flyleaf.

This book is in good condition. The hardcover boards have some rubbing and small scratches to the surface and small corner bumping which has caused small creases, but the boards have no tears, stains, or other major damage. The binding is strong and intact. The interior is unmarked with no writing, highlighting, or underlining and has occasional soiling and small corner bumping to some pages but no tears, dog-eared pages, water stains, mold, or other major damage. The page edges have some soiling but no remainder mark, foxing, stains, or other major damage.

The price for this book is $80.

USPS Media Mail shipping included in the price. I will consider shipping it internationally if there is no interest among any American buyers with the international shipping cost to be covered by the buyer, but the book is rather heavy and shipping from the United States overseas would likely be fairly expensive.

I only accept PayPal.

This book will be securely packed in a box and promptly shipped once payment is received with a tracking number provided after it is shipped.

I only have one copy, so it is first come, first served.

I have too many plants and need to clear out some space before winter. So, I am selling off some extra seedlings/plants. A lot of people seem to be doing that here on the Forum, right now. Some of these are relatively common plants, others are hard to find (such as Pouteria glomerata) and difficult to germinate (Nauclea xanthoxylon). These seedlings have been grown organically, in sterile potting mix, using Garden Safe Neem Oil Extract to prevent pests and Jobe’s Organics Fruit & Citrus Granular Plant Food for fertilizer. Some of the plants do not look perfect (the passion fruits in particular were eaten heavily by gulf fritillary caterpillars) but all are healthy.

These plants will be shipped using USPS Priority Mail with the shipping costs based on the size, weight, number of plants ordered, and buyer location. They will not be shipped bare root; they will be shipped in a container with potting soil, though they may be down-potted to reduce weight. I do not ship internationally. The citrus plants cannot be shipped to the citrus states and territories due to USDA regulations. Buyers in California, Arizona, and Hawaii purchase these plants at your own risk; I am not responsible if they are confiscated.

Payment through PayPal.

Feel free to contact me with any questions you might have.

Thank you to any Tropical Fruit Forum members who bid on my previous auctions.

While in spirit I believe the claim that a rare fruit grower can never have too many plants, I have too many plants and need to clear out some space (which I will probably end up filling with other plants). So I am offering some of my extra plants for sale on eBay.

These auctions end starting at 10:30 pm, Eastern Time, on Sunday, July 4.

I will not be listing any plants for sale next week, and I may take a break for the rest of July and August until the weather gets a little cooler. I do not want these plants frying during shipping.

All the pertinent details are in the listing descriptions. But, in short: no sales to Arizona, no sales of citrus plants to the citrus states, no international shipping, and I will offer a combined shipping discount for multiple plants purchased. All the auctions begin at $0.99 plus Priority Mail shipping.
