Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Flash Sale: Jocote Cuttings!
« on: January 25, 2023, 08:43:32 PM »
My neighbor and I cut his Jocote trees way back today and have a haul of cuttings. This will be a bulk sale to move them quickly.
I will fill a USPS flat rate envelope with cuttings for the price of $25 + shipping and PayPal fees. I think I can manage 5 or 6 packages. Not all the cuttings will be the same size but you will get lots of them. Have a great week. Reach out if interested.

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Fresh Beaumont Macadamia Seeds
« on: January 10, 2023, 04:44:38 PM »
Hi All,

The Beaumont macadamia trees are full of nuts. In addition to processing airlayer orders right now(list is pretty full right now but can take requests + a small deposit ($) for each airlayer that will be put on the trees come February/March) I am collecting lots of fresh nuts. Seeds will be priced by volume (not including shipping):

1-10 nuts: $2/each
10-100 nuts: $1.75/each
100+ nuts $1.50/each



PayPal Note: PayPal is charging 3.49% (on total, including any taxes invoiced as well as shipping which makes no sense at all to me) + $0.49 on each transaction. I will be including these fees in the buyers invoice as I cannot eat them with my low margins. I also will not be including CA sales tax (7.75% that I report to the state) in the base price for my seeds/scions. So, expect higher invoiced prices on all transactions done through PayPal. I hate doing this and am open to other ways of doing sustainable online sales. If you are local and are paying in person, disregard this PayPal fee. Thanks!

Broken down:
$10 Item
 +7.75% CA Sales Tax
=$10.78
 +$5 Shipping (No CA Sales Tax)
=$15.78
 +3.49% Overall PayPal Percentage-Based Fee
 +$0.49 Flat PayPal Fee
=$16.33 Final Invoiced Total

If interested please message me with an address and email to send the invoice to. Have a great week all.

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Fresh Kecil Wax Jambu Scions
« on: November 10, 2022, 08:26:06 PM »
Updated 1/7/2023: Kecil a wax jambu that originates from Frankie's Nursery in Hawaii. It is an aromatic, semi sweet jambu with a slight red blush on the end of ripened fruit. It is a very productive variety that sets two crops per year in San Diego.
$6/scion or 5 for $25 as this is a very hard to find variety. I won't sit on them for more than a week before putting them in soil to grow out for Spring.

Anyone growing silvervine kiwi? I would like to for cat treats as well as fruit. I see One Green World has listings for male and female vines but they are out of stock. Any insight into whether this is worth growing for the fruit would be helpful. Thanks!

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Ice Cream Bean Bulk Sale
« on: October 18, 2022, 04:18:10 PM »
Hi All,

So we are flush with ice cream beans (mature and still great for seeds but the pulp won't be ideal for eating) and offering bulk discounts. Shipping the whole beans can get quite heavy so I have decided to do the following:

Option A:
I can ship the beans whole at a price of

$2/bean, minimum 25 beans
$3/bean, minimum 15 beans

Option B:
I can dehusk the beans and pack the seeds with pulp in moistened peat moss to lower the shipping cost. Price for this method would be per packed seed

$0.50/seed, minimum 50 seeds

Orders are processed on Sunday and Monday. Thanks! Have a great week!

Hi All,

Remember there is a $20 minimum and that I process orders on Sundays and Mondays. Shipping costs will be calculated after orders are placed. Have a great week everyone!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Leo Manuel's Mango Notes
« on: August 07, 2022, 04:26:20 PM »
Hi All,

As part of the California Rare Fruit Growers, San Diego board I am helping to spread the body of knowledge that Mr. Leo Manuel collected during his time here on earth. He was deeply involved with our chapter. He helped to trial mango varieties here and created some varieties of his own. These varieties are being entrusted to members of our chapter for propagation. The link below  is for his Mango Notes. Please share this knowledge. His varieties will be available as our club propagates more material. Have a great week!

Hi All,

I am helping a neighbor to move an abundance of seeds. In order to make this a smooth process I will respond to order requests every Sunday, confirm order if enough seeds are available, and collect, clean and pack seeds, . There is a $20 minimum (plus shipping). Shipping normally runs about $8-12 per envelope unless it is much lighter, heavier or is going somewhere far. Shipping for plants is variable and will be calculated upon order confirmation (you can specify the speed at which you would like to be shipped items). No international shipping. If you live in San Diego, you can specify local pickup to save on shipping. Only shipping within the US. Thanks!

$1 Barbados Cherry (per seed)
$1 Jocote (per seed)
$1 Surinam Cherry, red (per seed)
$0.10 Inca Golden Berry (per seed)
$10 Ice Cream Bean (whole)
$15 Guayabana Seedlings (6in), will be barerooted and packed in coco coir or peat moss
$2 Yellow Coffee (per seed)
$2 Red Bourbon Coffee (per seed)
$1 Regular Red Arabica Coffee (per seed)
$1 Kaffir plum (each seed)

This next Sunday I will stop by my neighbor's place again and take good photographs of the fruits. Likely, I will be updating this post as more fruits become available :)
