Luc's Garcinia and Green Sapote update
« on: May 05, 2021, 08:35:35 PM »
Hi, for all who haven sent me messages sorry for delay answer after going three weeks ago to the jungle ready to pick loads of fruit I was shock when I didn't see a single one, then I went to another spot with good productive trees and there was nothing also, after three hours of back and forth all I found was a runt on the ground, don't know what could cause this problem maybe the January windy storm dropped off the flowers or climate change never happened this before in the 10 years I haven't been harvesting the fruits, after that day I started to feel sick maybe because if that original because I was recently coming back to the Gym and overtrained myself, however I felt very exhausted super tired and with a strong apathy for anything even for open social media and answering messages, now I'm feeling a bit better ill try to answer one by one the larger amount of messages I have,
About the Green sapote orange flesh is all I have, White is just an illusion now can't find it anymore as the seller told to my friend in Guatemala is like winning the lottery who knows when can be spot again, about the Luc's I haven't a friend who knows another area with trees 2 hours from the regular one, he was going to check if there's fruit there but he fell from a tree in his house some now he is getting better here said to go this coming weekend, I'll keep you posted 😃

I was envisioning you had a farm or something.  It is awesome that you are literally hiking through the jungle to find wild(?) trees growing to harvest. 

All I can find here are raspberries.

I hope you feel 100% soon. Raul is a legend. His ilama hunting trip where he was dodging cartel was pretty crazy as well.

Hi Raul, any update?  Will you be able to ship Luc's Garcinia seeds this year?

Thanks,
Bill

So at this point it appears that no Luc's Garcinia seeds will be shipped this year.  How do I get a refund?  I'm not getting any response to my PM's or posts here.  Has anyone else got a refund?

Thanks,
Bill

Hi Bill -
A few weeks ago I sent Raul an email to ask if the Luc's was an impossibility at this point. My understanding from his reply (and input from others) was that we're still in the midst of their season in June, so I decided not to pursue his offer of a refund outright, but opted to hang on thru the end of the month.

Until I saw your request for an update a few days ago, I honestly didn't realize anybody else was still awaiting an answer. In my case the real bad news was that I held off on having Raul ship some white fleshed P. Viridis seeds that I had ordered in the meantime - figuring that one parcel would be preferable to two in quick succession. Turned out the availability of that was short lived too, so my option on that expired in the interim - ugh.

FWIW, Raul was quick to reply to me and left the ball in my court as to refund or credit re: the Luc's. Without checking as I type this, I believe our exchange was via TFF's email link - as opposed to PM's - which have been occasionally spotty for me too over the last several weeks.

OK, thanks for the news. Iím willing to wait also to see if any seeds become available.

Hi Raul, sorry to post this here in the public but I have sent you several private messages with no response.  How or when will I get my refund for the Luc's Garcinia seeds I paid for and never received?

Thanks,
Bill

Turns out Raul area got hit by a hurricane with a lot of damage, hopefully he will still be able to get seeds to you.

When I got my refund I had to email Raul, he responded within a day to the email and asked me to file a paypal dispute which he then accepted/refunded.  I suggest trying this
