Tropical Fruit Discussion / Mystery seedling from tossed seeds
« on: May 29, 2022, 12:13:24 PM »
When i give up on tropical seeds, i have a habit of tossing them in the yard. One last chance on their own. But i end up with mystery seedlings when it works! Not finding a match in my old seed envelopes.

Maybe someone recognizes these?

you've got an eBay post for a plant I've been seeking. You understandably caution shipping to Arizona.

in your experience, how often have you heard Arizona confiscating plants you've shipped?

Just wanna weigh my gamble. :)

Just got a reply from the seller you suggested.

His answer is:
"inconclusive but I think dioecious"

I'm considering buying one or two of these. I also have some seeds. But I don't know if this is monoecious or dioecious. Strangely enough, I can't find the answer from the articles I see online.


Are you able to deliver to Arizona? I know that's another state that can be problematic

Definitely not that. Different leaves, different fruit

Seeking seeds or seedlings of Sideroxylon obtusifolium (jungle plum)

I'm in Arizona, if there are shipping issues.

Got my Davidson's plum! Well-packaged and survived the trip. And someone snuck in an extra plant! awesome!

HmmÖ I donít think cas guava, iíve got a little one of those & leaves are rougher, less glossy and more defined veins. The rose apple looks a lot closer, but the veins arenít quite the same, judging by online pics.

Probably stuck waiting for flowers. Boo. Maybe itís just a new morphology of ugni!

Iíve got a happy little 3yr old plant grown from seed (trade winds). It was labeled chilean guava/ugni molinae. It hasnít flowered yet. But whenever I look at pics online, the leaves seem different than my plant. Shorter and curled downward on the margins (deflexed). Mine almost looks like some eugenia, but Ö maybe iím just impatient to know because I havenít seen flowers/fruit yet.

I have adamantium seedlings if no one else can provide

Cool! Feel free to pm me if/when they're ready, to talk cost 'n such. I've only found Tradewinds having offered seeds, but out of stock. No seedlings.

I'm pretty open in which ones. Looks like we're in the same city, too - so that makes it easier.

Here's a few names on my list. Some may be pretty rare. And I'm willing to try others not on this list.

Campomanesia adamantium
Campomanesia aurea
Campomanesia eugenioides
Campomanesia phaea
Campomanesia guazumifolia
Campomanesia hirsuta
Campomanesia xanthocarpa (syn - C. crenata)
Campomanesia sessiliflora
Campomanesia schlechtendaliana
Campomanesia anemonea
Campomanesia costata
Campomanesia dichotoma

There are several campomanesia species I'm interested in. There seem to be a few suited to drier environments and with salt tolerance.

Preferably seedlings, but maybe there's some seeds as well. I've only found Farwell Fruit Farm carrying seeds of one species. But they have a $50 purchase limit, and there's nothing else I want from them at the moment.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Sowing Annona Senegalensis?
« on: March 25, 2022, 11:43:48 AM »
Has anyone else had luck sowing annona senegalensis? How did you go about it?

Every year, I buy a few seeds from some source or another, but no luck yet getting any to sprout. I've tried at various temperatures, different soils, and different soil moistures.

argh! Saw the post last night.. and by the time I woke up and got ready to buy me an e. angustissima.... sold out.

Please get more of them growing! :)

At the moment, the Eugenia Beaurepaireana on eBay.  ... but a little worried it might auction higher than my budget this month. I splurged on too many other plants!

Do you have any issues with shipping to Arizona? Some sellers won't.

I'm looking for a young plant or I can settle for seeds. The only place I've found selling this is TopTropicals, and they won't ship it to me in Arizona.

I don't have a variety to go by, I'm just trying to find varieties that are extremely dark/black skinned fruits with soft seeds and more sweet than acidic/astringent.

There are ornamental varieties, and ones that are a sharper flavor - I don't want these. I know there is one developed in Spain, but that's not available for purchase as a plant.

Interested in seeds, cuttings or plants.

I'd be interested in a few seeds too, if pliniacrazy333 doesn't take 'em all!  :D

I'm in Arizona.

I'm interested in Lepisanthes fruticosa. Any idea what its frost tolerance is? I'm in Phoenix. On rare occasions, it can drop to 29-30 f.
