My in-laws were kind enough to collect a lot of seeds for me... But I could use some help in determining if what they collected for me is still viable.  I'm here for 2 more weeks.

* jaboticaba
* abiu (lots of seeds, but they are probably 2 mos old now)
* araca-um (whole fruit stored in freezer)
* cashew (whole fruit stored in fridge)
* various eugenias

I plan to collect some jackfruit seeds (jaca mole) as it is everywhere here... But not sure how best to store.

Still looking for more seeds as well.

Any help is appreciated.

I started some seeds inside this year, but have had mixed success moving them outside.  All of my papaya (about 18) died; the guava and passfilora did fine; cherimoya has been a mixed bag.

Cherimoya seedlings... I moved a dozen outside and many lost leaves quickly and look "haggard".  I decided to keep the rest inside until I can figure out a better method for acclimating them.  Any suggestions?

The surinam cherry (right side) seeds sprouted quickly - I plan to move them outdoors in another week or so.  (Passiflora seedlings in the left side of the frame; I moved a dozen outside two weeks ago without any signs of stress, with the exception of one that didn't make it.)

After dealing with the Ca Dept of Agriculture on a couple of issues, I have several questions for anyone shipping fruiting plants/trees out of California into other states that are most likely best answered in PM.

1. How do you get around requirement of phyto cert (legally)?

2. What conditions are best for meeting legal requirements (i.e. bareroot, soil-less medium, etc)?

3. Are there plant/tree species/genus that should just be avoided all together (i.e. citrus)?

4. Is there a "Cliff's Notes" version of the rules & regs for interstate transport of regulated plant material?

Thanks in advance,

Is anyone growing this in SoCal?  Should it be grafted to cherimoya stock for best performance here?  Looking to purchase tree or scions.

Thanks in advance.

There are about a dozen of these trees that were added as lansdscaping along a street in Ventura, California.  Trees are evergreen and produce small red & orange fruits (with, from memory: multiple seeds and a cream colored center).  The picture of picked fruit was from July last year.  The photo of the tree and leaves were taken in March of this year.  Unfortunately, I lost the photos of the fruit cross-section, which I am sure would help.

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Wanted: Sugar apple scions
« on: March 25, 2013, 12:04:16 PM »
Does anyone have any sugar apple scions they would be willing to send to San Diego?  I attempted grafts of Congrejos (thanks JF, Behl & Simon) earlier in the month and hoping they will take - but I would like to throw a couple more cultivars on my tree before it starts to flush out new growth.

I've got about a dozen sticks from my Campas tree that I would be happy to send out as well.



ps-here's a photo of the Campas fruit...
