Just received my seeds! All germinated and happy as seeds can look. Thanks for the fast shipping!


Just chiming in as an out-of-zone tropical grower, I think I can speak for a lot of people here and say your set up is amazing. Thats the type of build I would go for if space and money were not an issue.
Also, @Brian, so sad to hear about the Kepel not growing well. Kepel is my white whale, but I think I'll have to bite the bullet and just go to where it grows naturally to try it.

Hi ! I've got a little greenhouse in Vancouver Wa, zone 8b. I have a pouteria obsession after eating mamey, so I've managed to fill my greenhouse with a bunch of plants that will probably get far too large in a few years. Currently I just have a cheap plastic greenhouse from Amazon that has decimated my heating bill this winter, but I am looking to build a permanent lean-to against my house this summer. I just put 4 pradosia Brevipes seeds in pots so I'm hopeful those will sprout. Also have mamey, butter sapote, ross, ducke, P transclucida, P viridis and P venosa growing.  I also have a some eugenia and plinia growing. This forum and its members have opened my eyes to just how many tropical fruits there are, and how few are available in Washington state. But we get amazing blueberries, raspberries, cherries and apples up here. (which I have growing outside of the greenhouse)

Sent you a PM. Would like to pick up a pack.

Hi Bill,
Let me know if you got the response to your PM and my address. Let me know what shipping is and I can get the money to you :) Appreciate what you've done.

as a broke college student there's no way in hell I'm gonna win it, but that pouteria torta var gallifructa looks beautiful!

I want some of those as seeds SO badly. wow

You and me both.... I love watching them and imaging someday I can also spend 100+$ on one.. I like watching the final seconds when it skyrockets every time.

Good luck! I always feel like I'm fumbling around in the winter. Between underwatering/ overwatering/ feeding / pruning things in the greenhouse without stressing them out and watching them be stressed out from coming in....It's a battle fellow zone pusher, keep up the good fight.

If it's not insect related could be ph of mix and or nutrient issues. I never got to that stage since I keep losing my plant but I did have a pretty bad spider mite infestation in mid summer.
If mine ever holds some fruit I'll send you some seeds! I could try rooting some cuttings once I feel its not going to die on me.

I have in a 3g pot, but its leaves curl at the end. They get all rubbery in spots (picture 1) and then curl up and are misshapen (2nd picture). . Any advice would be appreciated. I water after dirt dries out, I have sprayed it several times with organic pesticides and not visible bugs on the tree. It keeps flushing out new leaves so I admire its spirit to not die.

Hello, line 21 here. Do you want payment for shipment at this time too ? 6 trees or just the trees for now?

 Fee for the shipping can be made late based on the true cost of USPS priority.


Order 21 - Payment sent !

Do you think these would ship ok in the 30 degree weather? I'm interested if yes. Otherwise I have to wait till it warms up again.

Any way to bulk add items from excel for you? I already nerd out and keep an excel tracker of my plants and my seedings with their sow date. For plants I purchased I guestimate their age, google sheets is a pretty easy way to share bulk data as well, (the one for the yangmei order works really well). I could link you my sheet and if you upload on the backend then you'll have my collections info.

Hello I was looking at and saw the Ucuqui is sold out. Does anyone have any experience with this tree? It looks like it gets massive. Has anyone tasted it? Anyone growing it or have seeds they would be willing to sell? Otherwise I can wait for it to restock.

Received plants lovingly packaged! A+ shipment and healthy-looking plants. Appreciate you taking the time to ship !

Hi Jabril,
Do you still have Annona stenophylla seeds ?
Your etsy shop does not have them listed anymore.

Would gladly pay you 60$ + whatever you think is fair for shipping one of those Annona sp 1 year olds.

I got a Big Jim Loquat from Mimosa. Came very healthy and bushy. It had a tag from another nursery on it, so I think they are mostly resellers, but I'd buy from them again.

Just wanted to do a shout out to Montoso Gardens for having amazing Cocoa pods and seeds. I ordered from Bryan and it arrived just 3 days later. Very good germination rate from the seeds as well.
He's very responsive by email.

Hi Bill,
Ill update my order to 2 female 2 male black crystal trees.

Purple passion arrived tied up tighter than fort knox. I feel bad for anyone who doesnt have their knot badge when they get plants from kevin. But honestly, excellent shipping and plant came very healthy and happy. Thanks Kevin!

Ordered a 2nd box and arrived faster than I could think about it!
Franks the man. Even kept the sweet-tart mangos out of the shipment cause the kids didnt like those. 11/10 stars.
