Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Sicana odorifera seeds for sale
« on: March 02, 2023, 12:58:43 PM »
I have Sicana odorifera (cassabanana) seeds for sale, $5 for ten seeds plus postage ( plan to send in small padded envelope). The fruit was harvested yesterday.

Text me @ 407-506-4394.

I am in Central Florida and down to the last 10 - 15 available spots in my yard, and would like to fill one of those spots with the Zill's HPP Buttercream mango. Just curious about its growth habit?  I haven't been able to find much searching the forum and Google.

Does it fit the within the common growth habit descriptions such as:

low/medium vigor spreading
medium vigor upright
high vigor upright or spreading


I am selling some fruit trees:

several fruiting red jabos in both 7 gallon and 15 gallon (the trees fruit a handful of times per year, and the crop load is nice and consistently growing in both sizes)
(2) Inga vera in 15 gallon size (seeds sourced from fruit sold by Mike @ Treesnmore)
(3) Annona reticulata in 2 gallon size (seeds sourced from Carcarlo's seed stock)
some 2g Myrciaria phitranthras, a couple with emerging light green leaves and a couple with emerging dark red leaves
various 1 gallon fig air layers (I have a nice inventory of fig cultivars and will set air layers on request)

First, I want to apologize to anyone I was unable to link up with, the last time I posted trees for sale, back in 2016.  I was unfortunately working 6 -7 days a week, 10 hours plus per day at a 400 acre nursery.  My current schedule is fairly flexible.

Second, I will not ship any trees under any circumstances.  Almost all of the trees are over 4 feet in height, exceptions are the Myr. phitranthras.  If you PM me asking shipping related questions, I will most likely ignore the message.

I am hoping to load some pics over the next few days, but will gladly text or email them.

I frequently travel the Turnpike from Orlando to Lake Worth/Boynton Beach, I-95 up to Jacksonville and down to Lake Worth/Boynton Beach, and starting next month, the Turnpike/I-75 from Orlando to Tallahassee.  So I may be able to deliver some trees with the exception of the Ingas (7-8 feet tall) and the 15 gallon red jabos.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Grafting inga
« on: July 17, 2017, 09:16:51 PM »
I have a friend with an inga tree that is 25 years old and has yet to fruit.  I read in another thread where Oscar commented that some inga species are self sterile and some species are able to hybridize.  I will try to get some leaf and tree pics loaded in the next few days to hopefully lead to an identification of the species.  I am wondering if I could just graft some other tree's scions to it to provide cross pollination? 

I was looking for a library copy of CABI's The Encyclopedia of Fruit and Nuts by Jules Janick and Robert E. Paull, and I found this pdf.

I am going to be staying in Ojai, CA from December 26th until the 30th, and was hoping to gorge myself on some fruit  ;D ;D ;D.  I plan to be around the Ventura and Santa Barbara areas each morning, and was hoping someone could recommend a market or farm where I could buy some cherimoyas and/or atemoyas.  The friends I'm staying with are not up on these kinds of fruit   ??? :o  ::), but know the area well, so any info would be awesome. 

Here is a pic of my 25 gallon Pitomba, that is fruiting for the second year.
Some of the fruits are round in shape and others more fig shaped (with a neck).  I have been eating them both after they fall, when they drop once just touching them,  and maybe a day or 2 before, when you gotta pull on them.  Once they have fallen the acidity seems to drop a little and they tend to be mushy where the flesh has discolored slightly.  Others have reported they come into fruiting slowly, but mine started fruiting around 3 to 4 feet high.  Plus for me they fit the time period between grumichamas/blueberries and the beginning of lychee season, which has just fired up.  Another plus is my girlfriend and daughter don't care for them, so more for me  ;D ;D.  Also never have had dieback on this one.

I have some 25 gallon trees and one 15 gallon tree for sale.  Unfortunately I will be moving this summer, and need to thin the herd.  I am in Titusville, Florida but travel frequently throughout both the central and southern parts of the state on weekends, so bringing the trees to these areas shouldn't be a problem.

25 Gallon 'Makok' sapodilla $100  Sold

25 Gallon Cherry of the Rio Grande $100  Sold
Held fruit for the first time this year

15 Gallon Rollinia deliciosa $75
Currently flowering Sold

25 Gallon 'Lisa' Atemoya $75 (just fertilized so leaves are starting to green up some more)

25 Gallon 8 foot tall from soil level Grumichama $125  Sold
Just finished fruiting, and last year it flowered and fruited twice.
This year's crop was extra sweet and plentiful, can't imagine how prolific these trees can be in the ground.

Send PM if interested

I have a dozen Garcinia sp. 'Mexican' seedlings in 3 gallon size, some Garcinia intermedia, a dozen or so Myrciaria glazioviania seedlings, some in 1 gallon others in 3 gallon containers, half dozen Randia formosa in 1 gallon, a half dozen or so Myrciaria cauliflora X (Hybrid) in 7 gallon size,  and 2 Myrciaria vexator seedlings in 7 gallon size containers, for sale.  Most of the Mexican Garcinias have 3 to 4 sets of leaves and were up-potted last spring.  The Garcinia intermedia plants, are smaller with 3 sets of leaves, and just recently up-potted last fall. 

My prices will be well under retail, but I would be more interested in trades.  I have no interest in shipping.  For trades, I would be interested in Annona squamosa budwood, non-astringent Persimmons, Paw Paws, Mulberries, Loquats, Cudrania tricuspidata (Aka Che), and any other Myrciaria varieties.  Since my seedlings are smaller, I am open to multiples for 1 trades too.

I live in Titusville, until June, when I will be moving to the Wekiva Springs area of Orlando, but I am frequently in Jax, Gainesville, and Tampa.  I am also in Lake Worth frequently visiting family, so meeting up anywhere along the way or coming further south is no problem.

I will get some pics loaded this week.

I just posted this on another thread on the general forum, and figured it might be better on the by/sell forum.

Last year I used organza bags (used in wedding decor to hold candies and other items) I bought off Amazon.  They worked extremely well, and come in many sizes and colors.

I'm debating the seed permit as well, but have read in other places that wet paper and stuff like sphagnum, are not allowed in the bag with the seeds.  Is this correct?  Seems like that would make shipping the recalcitrant types difficult. Has anyone in Florida received seeds with wet sphagnum or wet paper, etc. via USDA?

Just wondering if it is easier to chance it, with the ones that are already germinating upon arrival.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Lychees are in Orlando markets
« on: May 09, 2013, 09:42:22 PM »

Here are some lychees that made it home from a Vietnamese market in Orlando.... I ate a bunch on the ride back.  They were a little pricey, but now that I know they are in, I'll hit some cheaper places in Melbourne and Merritt Island.

The market people said this year's crop is supposed to be big, so prices should be low once they start really flowing.     

These are not fruit tree seeds, but I have loads of cranberry hibiscus ( hibiscus acetosella) seeds. The leaves taste tangy and mix with salads well.  I got the plant from Echo in Fort Meyers last summer, its herbaceous not woody and mine grew eight feet from late July until the beginning of cooler weather, at which time the leaves went bland as well. 

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / I have a few trees for trade
« on: March 23, 2013, 08:35:48 PM »
I have a "Mallika" and a "Lancetilla" mango in 25 gallon pots, a 15 gallon "Alano" sapodilla ready for a 25, a 15 gallon red cattley guava, and a 15 gallon rollinia deliciosa.  I'm willing to trade down in size for comparable value.  Looking for persimmon, jujube, muscadines, mulberry, loquat, or citrus. 

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Free Caimito Seeds
« on: March 23, 2013, 08:27:33 PM »
I just returned from a trip to Puerto Rico and have 2 dozen Star Apple/Caimito seeds I found in one of my pockets. The seeds were from the purple variety and the fruit were 3.5-4" in diameter.  I can't use them where I live but maybe some of you SFL people might be interested.

Been eating and getting pics of all the old varieties of mangos as well, hopefully can get them loaded soon as well.
