You thought prices were bad where you lived...
« on: November 10, 2023, 12:07:11 PM »
Came across a vendor in the UK...

Eugenia uniflora $250
Russel's Sweet Garcinia $312
Plinia cauliflora $323
Eugenia luschnathiana $373 (was $1868)
Myrciaria vexator $499
Garcinia indica $623

happiestplants.com

I wonder what the prices are in Dubai
Eugenia luschnathiana = CURUIRI.    Talisia esculenta = PITOMBA
I do not recommend people deal with Fruit Lovers, Prisca Mariya or Fernando Malpartida

Well, when yingmei first came ashore, they were selling for like $500USD; now a year or two later, you have folks like Jaboticaba45 giving them away.

I think its a fair price to be honest. Having any sort of flavor beside boiled meats and chips must be divine.

I kid, I kid

I don't know, their variegated monstera prices seem good.
But the choices are "small cutting", "rotted cutting" or different plant sizes.
I would prefer that my cuttings were not rotted.  A personal thing...

Of course, I am sure the bottom is going to drop out of the variegated monstera market just as I get back into them again.  My luck is like that.  Thank goodness I didn't get in at the beginning of the emu boom!
