Hi all,

With this storm passing by, thought I'd use this as an opportunity to rearrange my yard. Currently looking for seedlings or small trees of the following Pawpaw (Asimina triloba) cultivars:
- Susquehanna
- Sunflower
- Tropical Treat

Primarily looking to trade for my larger potted plants (variegated centennial kumquat, moringa, blue java banana) or other seedlings and such I have available, but open to purchasing.

Hey all,

Recently found a Gac at the store and made a pretty good pesto from it. Have about 10 seeds leftover that appear viable, was looking to share with the forum and see if anyone has some interesting seeds to trade. This plant does best in USDA zone 9+ and needs a lot of space for vining, I see people make awesome trellises with this, which unfortunately I do not have the space for.

Hi all,

Updated post since I got the fig cuttings I needed.

Got a little project going, was hoping to see if any forum members had African Peach (Nauclea latifolia) seeds or cuttings before I go with etsy sellers.


Hi everyone,

Any known online or South Florida stores or homegrowers that offer fresh Durian? I would love to try one not frozen, but paying an arm and a leg for MiamiFruit isn't in the cards right now. Would appreciate any direction thanks!

Hey forum fam,

Call it impatience, but I'm not having great luck getting my cali pepper tree seeds germinating. I read this tree propogates very well from cuttings, as such, I am looking to purchase a good few to ship to Ft. Lauderdale. Anyone with connections in FL with this plant would be great too. Help me out southwest gardeners!

Open to trades too if you're looking for some tropicals. Let me know, thanks!

Hey everyone,

Last mango seeds I have left for this season! Let me know if you're interested. As the subject states, I have: 2 Sweet Tart (polyembryonic), 1 Valencia Pride (mono), and 1 Pickering (mono). Can make a great new variety or potential rootstock. Sweet Tart and VP were certainly some of my favorites this season. I can also throw in a couple of Australian Finger Lime (mixed colors) seeds I just received from Australia as well, if interested.

Asking a total of $17.45 (USPS Priority Box + $8 for seeds). Thanks!

Hello everyone,

I have 70 fresh Longan (Dimocarpus longan) seeds that were just harvested from the fruit. Based on multiple characteristics of the fruit and seed, it is my understanding that this is the Kohala cultivar.
Kohala Longan, originally produced in Hawaii, is now grown as 99% of the Florida Longan crop as of 2019 per the UF Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. It is juicy, sweet, and produces a very good quality fruit. It is popular with Florida homeowners for the quantity and quality of fruit it bears. 

My first test batch germinated at 94.3% (33 out of 35) after just a few days; there is potential for all seeds to germinate.
I am asking for a total of $40.00 (includes shipping!) for all 70 seeds. Seeds have been well cleaned and can be shipped "dormant" or I can begin the germination process. Contact me with questions, get 'em while they're fresh!!  ;D

Hi all,

Sold out of most of my Lemon Zest and Pickering's from my previous posts, but here are my remaining mango seeds that all have been dehusked and begun germinating. Just don't really have room for them. I can send it out for $10 + Shipping. If interested, reply to my post and/or shoot me a PM.

Springfels - 1
Lemon Zest - 1

Hi all,

I have a young Choquette Avocado Tree purchased from Home Depot last month. Unfortunately, it is not thriving in my yard as I have very limited shade, but it's nowhere close to dead. I am not looking to purchase any shade cloth as I would like to clear the space for some incoming banana plants. Originally purchased for $60 but I am unable to return it, hoping to at least get $15-20 bucks to recoup some of the loss. Let me know if you're interested or would like a picture. It is about 5.5ft tall and originally came in a 7Gal, one of the best producers in Florida.

Hi all!

I've got 6 Lemon Zest mango seeds available, harvested from fresh local mangoes I picked up this morning. Let me know if you're interested in purchasing them + shipping, open to offers, or trade. I've taken them out of the husk and have them germinating. I still have around 6-7 Pickering Mango seeds germinating as well, if interested.


Tropical Fruit Discussion / Fresh Mangosteen near Fort Lauderdale?
« on: July 23, 2022, 07:44:02 PM »
Hi all,

Was curious if anybody has recent experience buying fresh Purple or Seashore Mangosteen in or near Fort Lauderdale? Every store I call either doesn't have them in stock or doesn't pick up. I've tried a ton of local markets, stores, and farmers markets, and nothing! The only place I found purple ones was at Sprouts Farmers Market and all the ones I purchased were rotten and moldy inside. Broke my heart.

Would definitely appreciate some direction on this. Willing to purchase from a home grower too, but cant justify the $120 boxes from MiamiFruit. Thanks!!

Hi all,

I am looking for Japanese Yuzu (C. junos) to start from scratch, either with cuttings or seeds. I would appreciate if someone has a fruit for sale as well, as its been so long since I've had one. Please let me know what you've got and I'd be glad to pay or trade for it! Trying to avoid paying an arm and a leg for the online options, if possible.

I am specifically seeking the Japanese Yuzu (C. junos) variety, not the ​​​Trifoliate orange/hardy orange (Poncirus trifoliata) commonly referred to as Yuzu in the U.S. Thanks a ton! Located in Fort Lauderdale, FL.

Hi all,

I'm interested in purchasing or trading for the seeds, cuttings, and most importantly, the fruit! of the two listed species:
Japanese Yuzu (C. junos)
Gummy Worm Fruit Tree (Cecropia peltata)

I would also appreciate if anybody has connections in the State of Florida that could provide them. Online prices are a bit absurd. Thanks a ton!

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Pickering Mango Seeds

Hi all,

I just processed some ripe Pickerings purchased from a local grower and have 7 cleaned seeds available for $25 (including shipping) or $20 if within Florida. While I love the firm fruit and coconut tones, I don't have any more space for seedlings. PM if interested, thanks. I can dehusk and bag with wet paper towels if requested.

Willing to pay and trade some seeds if interested! Located in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Thank you!
