I just sent out several batches of seeds and am now out of stock. I will be collecting more in two weeks (around November 28th). Ordering ahead of time will expedite the shipping process so the seeds don't sit on the counter longer than necessary. I am also willing to ship a fruit or two along with your order :)

This is a blog by Marta Matvienko, a fellow CRFG member, describing the linda cultivar. I put her twitter down as well.

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Fresh Kecil Wax Jambu Seeds
« on: November 10, 2022, 08:26:06 PM »
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.
$2/seed 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.

Which varieties are you looking for? I know someone in our local CRFG who has a ton of varieties.

Sure Janet. The ones I put on after March are taking their sweet time. Hopefully I will have 6 to cut off of the tree by January. I will be doing another round in early March just before the buds break. That seems to be the sweet spot.

Good idea. I could dehydrate some items to send overseas :)

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Silvervine Kiwi
« on: November 08, 2022, 02:49:44 PM »
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!

I am down, but only ship within the US.

I am airlayering a white, sweet guava right now that is to die for. I think it is just called tropical white. It makes fruit the size of a softball, intensely tropical smelling, sweet and creamy. I love to eat them after they are chilled. I sold most of the airlayers to City Farmer's nursery about a month and a half ago. I have a small handful left on the tree. If the ants don't destroy them I will be able to pot them up, lol. Luckily, I transitioned on to a pot at my place earlier in the year. Its leafing out quite well. I tried to root cuttings from the tree several times and had not success. I am growing lots of seedlings from the mother tree and plant to do approach grafts this spring. I just collected like a half a cup of seeds from fruit this week so if you are local I can give you some seeds. I am in San Diego.

Anyone growing it here?

UPDATE: The mother tree is beginning to go dormant, so I cannot accurately evaluate the airlayers with new grafts. I will pot the grafted ones up to evaluate next Spring. I will also be potting up the very large ones for future grafting projects. In the meantime I will only be offering 1-3ft LI airlayers for $35 each. For those interested in shipping, I calculated shipping for at least one airlayer to FL(as a gauge of price) via USPS(the only carrier that allows live plants). That package would be between $70 and $90. Non-standard box sizes are up charged quite alot in addition to the holiday shipping upcharge. I can do my best to trim down any airlayers to fit a cheaper size package. Anyway, I hope everyone has a good holiday season. Talk to yall soon.

I would like 2 rooted cuttings. Will PM you with details.

I agree with FloridaManDan. I use the forum to buy and sell and learn about plants on the discussion forums. I reference the forums a lot although I don't post often.

Would you be down to trade anything? I have some fresh yuzu, sweet tropical white guava and pink and green wax jambu (Kecil, aromatic, some sweetness) seeds and sweet white tropical guava seedlings. I also can dig up some rooted cardamom shoots if that appeals to you.

I just bought a bunch of yuzu from Specialty Produce here in San Diego. I am cleaning seeds now. PM me if you want some.

Hey Benjamin,

I was wondering where you got your original P. alata plant from. Also, P. phoenicea and P. alata look extremely similar, only really distinguishable by the number of sets of yellow glands (2 for P. phoenicea and multiple for P. alata). Anyway, I just was curious about how you ID'd your alata. I have P. phoenicea and would love to get alata as a cross pollinator. Have a great week.

Thanks for the clarification socalbalcony2. I guess I have been referring to the wrong inga. I thought any edible ice cream bean fell under edulis but I was incorrect. The pods are short, fat and have pleasant white flesh. Based on pictures of edulis pods they are much longer than the ones I have.

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!

James
