Hello everybody,

After some time away due to moving, here is my updated list of available species.
I would like to inform that i've moved to a place closest to the forest and its marvelous fruits :)
There are a few downsides : i depend on solar energy so i may be offline for some days, especially during the rainy season :-\

Here is a important notice for buyers :
Rare tropical fruits enthousiasts know well that buying such seeds (recalcitrant for most) is not like buying an ordinary object of consumption online. Tropical seeds needs special cares and process prior to be shipped.
So after an order is placed, please do not expect to have in 1 or 2 days the seeds shipped out with tracking number.
Usually, shipping delay varies from 4 to 20 days.
I'm not growing all the seeds i'm offering for sale, most fruits are picked in the wild and i have to manage fruits ripeness, distance and other things like weather. Also, by the past, i had to manage some eagers buyers that are also uncivil.
I will no more accept orders from people that cannot wait few days for an email reply and are daily sending messages like "Hey, where r my seeds ? ? ? ? ? ?" without any minimum greeting. In that forum, we are all growing seeds, trees and patience too. A minimum of courtesy will be greatly appreciated too.

I ship worldwide, only by priority airmail with tracking. Since covid crisis, tracking service is working erraticly, for some cases or period it may take several days for first updates.
I'm not responsible if packets is lost or confisced by destinatories customs.
If you think you need special way of shippment (CN22 customs declaration, invoice, etc...) please don't hesitate to ask me, as i would do by best for you to have best chances to receive ordered seeds.
Unfortunately, i cannot provide any phyto certificate.
About seeds import permits, some rules ask for seeds to be shipped absolutely free from any material with it. But it is impossible for me to ship recalcitrant seeds without any moist medium : 90% of seeds will arrive unviable despite of a good appearance. So, except for special request, all recalcitrant seeds are packed with moist vermiculite or coco fiber to ensure the seeds to reach you healthy.
Generally, i try to ship more seeds quantity than ordered, to compensate a low germination rate due to eventually an extended delivery time and also because i know it is always a pleasure to receive more than expected :).

Thanx by advance for understanding.

Hello!

P. Nitida sprouted and are growing well.

Is one plant sufficient for fruits? Wondering if its self-fertile or needs another plant.

Keeping a couple either way.

Thanks!

Hello,

Kavunma is self fertile, but a couple of plant should improve pollination and fruits quantity.

All u mentioned here sounds ok ,but in reality is different. I made an order from on your Bay store ,after made lots of orders from u before. I waited month and half for u to sent it but u didn't.after my last message about what's going on with my order, u blocked me.not to mention that 3 weeks after my order u answer me that u deal with your moving issue.i answer that all is ok ,but finally after this 1 and half month of wait u deciding not even to answer,and block me.probably i made orders much more then the average person.any order i got i immediately placed new one,even when only needed few new seeds listed only.never ask for a refund one got rotten seeds,only told u to resent it if it sounds ok,so it real upsetting.

Nice looking species.. I regret to inform you that the Pouteria Guianensis seeds I got from you were all unviable due to a seed boring insect. Just an FYI for anyone else who ordered these, might be worth checking your pots or seeds.

Hello,

Sorry to hear that.
99% of the seeds i send are collected in the wild and seed boring insect risk can happens even if it is relatively rare.
When such a thing happens, do not hesitate to contact me and let me know as soon as you receive the seeds.
Please send me your order details by PM or email.

Hi Richard,

Yes I understand there is risk in these species. I figured since you were moving and dealing with lots of messages, I didn't think it deserved special attention I was just letting other members know who might have them in pots. I will send you PM though

Best regards

I find Chrysophyllum seeds faster to sprout than pouteria.
That said some are still longer to sprout, like C. argenteum.
They sprout well under heavy rain when just on soil surface, but it is not easy to have heavy tropical rains in backyard for everyone here  ;D
Moist vermiculite in zip plastic bag works fine too.
