Seeds I have available:
All seeds are local and fresh, not for sale
Barter only

Garcinia warrenii
Reminiscence of a Davidson plum but a lot better, sourness is agreeable and flesh comes of the seed easy, no sweetness really (will test brix soon). Beautiful and strong red juice, strongest I have seen in any fruit yet.
Can eat a couple and enjoy them as they are a lot better then a Davidson Plum. This one is from a littoral tree, other varieties exist.


Garcinia mangostana, Mangosteen

Syzygium fibrosum, Fibrous satinash
Soft and fluffy texture, a little bit sour with no bitterness and not sweet really, I like it. Most fruits are seedless so this one is limited.
This variety is the one with the calyx lobes not protruding much.

Syzygium sp.
Fruits are similar to fibrosum but leafs and tree morphology is different.

Syzygium suborbiculare
Big fruits up to 8cm in dimeter, a little bit sweet and some sour, they are tasty IMO. No bitter or funky flavor. Flesh comes of seed easy. The best AU Syzygium I have tasted so far.


Sysygium sp.

Fruits up to 6cm in diameter, white,  very bland taste, no bitterness, very smooth and fluffy texture. Flesh comes of seed easy. It's different from the other white syzygium i have posted before.


Red flesh "Grey" Mammey sapote

Orange flesh Mammey sapote

Mammea americana, Mammey Apple
Really delicious fruits, sweet firm flesh with a unique flavor! It's up there with Mango for me. It's not juicy but the firmness is unique and I could eat this one while in the office.
Germination rates are high, seeds are large and fresh.




Eugenia stipitata, Araza

Artocarpus hetrophyllus, Jackfruit
crispy, very very sweet variety. Medium size fruits (aprox 5kg).

Artocarpus odoratissima - Marang, Tarap
Phillipino variety available, seeds are eliptict rather then round like most borneo Marang, really good, denser and drier then Borneo marang I have taste, really good:


Pouteria caimito - Abiu,
Large fruits up to 10cm diameter, very sweet.
Self fertile.
Really good Abius,
E4, Z4 from commerial grower.

Durio zibethinus - Durian
Mixed varieties from local trees.
Atleast 4 different varieties of seedlings trees that are consistent bearers (every year for the last 5 years).
The varieties are quite different from each other. Pictures upon request.

Terminalia catappa - Beach almond
Different colours, purple to green pink.

Terminalia microcarpa
Small fruits, purple/blue flesh.

Salacia chinensis, Lolly fruit, Lolly berry
Vine with red fruits, taste is sweet with a dry aftertaste, not sour really.
Loves it on the coast.

Metroxylon solomonensis, Solomon Sagu
The exocarp is just amazing to look at!
The seed inside is huge and could prorobly be processed and eaten.
The plam itself is a beauty! And a rarity!
Image comming soon.

Metroxylon sagu, Sago palm
The exocarp is just amazing to look at!
The core is processed into sago flour.

Normanya normanbyi, Black palm

Wodyetia bifurcata, Foxtail palm

Archontophoenix alexandrae, Alexanda palm

Attalea speciosa, Babassu
Seeds delicious with taste like Cocos nucifera.
There is a mesocarp under the fibrous outer skin layer that is edible and tasty, they taste best if they are picked before the mesocarp get's to dry. Usually when the drop off from the palm naturally they are quite dry.
The palm is large and majestic.

Sapida bligh, Ackee

Persea americana, Avocado
Seeds from Shepard and other varieties.

Pachira aquatica, Saba nut

Barringtonia edulis, Cut nut
Seed edible, not as good as Okari but ok. Beautiful tree, fruits quite small. Flowers are a true show!

Citrus australasica, Finger lime, red and green


Adenia hetrophylla, Lacewing vine
Passifloraceace family. I eat the flesh of the seed and spit out the seed, have to be ripe to be of any interest.
It's a tiny bit sweet and a bit bitter, but the flower and fruit is very beautiful.
Take caution eating this fruit, I am not sure if all parts are edible.


Garcinia Priniana, Button mangosteen or Cherapu
Absolutely delicous when ripe, as good as G. mangostana IMO.
Regular bearer, doesn't miss year like G. Mangostana sometimes does here in AU.
Prolific.


Cocos nucifera, Golden malay dwarf

Terminalia kaernbachii, Okari
Available May-June.
Have a look at my previous posts for images and germination advice.

Dacryodes edulis, Safou
Available March.

Artocarpus altilis, Breadfruit, ROOT CUTTINGS not seed
Only available to people experienced with Rotting cuttings because
otherwise these will not survive and be useless to you.
Two different varieties available.

Inga edulis, Guaba, Inga bean
1m long twisting pods, brown/green

Inga spectabilis, Guaba, Inga bean
40cm flat pods, green

Sandoricum koetjape, Santol
I like the fruit, not to sour, a little bit sweet.

Stelechocarpus burahol, Kepel
A little bit sweet, ok taste.

General info:
For more seeds please have a look at my 2022 post.
https://tropicalfruitforum.com/index.php?topic=47054.0

I update seeds that I have regularly, but please ask for current stock.

Can try and source local seeds you are searching for. I can not list all the fruits available in the forest that I live in so in reality I have access to more.

Upon agreement of barter I will take photo of seeds and parcel and send the photo to you if requested, please do the same so there is transparency. I can use tracked postage and give you the tracking number. Can also send non tracked letter. I am not responsible if parcel do not arrive, but can provide evidence that I did actually send what was agreed. No worries.
I use vermiculite or coir or nothing as medium inside a zip-lock bag but can also use Styrofoam.

hey canna,
Yes that would be possible. Would love some E. langsdoffi.
I don't have Syzygium suborbiculare seeds in stock now, have to have a look in the food forest if there are any fruit left.
I will let you know. otherwise will have to wait 11 months before I can send out.

Peace

Maybe not worthy for you Mick Mick.
But for some people it is.
And for some people, what I offer is not available in their country and they are happy to swap what I got for something they have locally available.

Your comment seams like a ad hominem.


Peace
