I've got a gallon potted plant available I'll do $30 plus shipping. Hit me up if interested.

Fair dinkum seeds is a personal online friend of mine and overall great seller and dude.

Add Magenta leaf plant to the list of available species. Also native violet, false cardamom, and Cuban oregano.

There are definitely wild trilobas here in North fl. Supposed they may grow better with less chill hours than ones from further north. Hard to catch the fruit on them let alone harvest them before animals do.

I'm not totally sure how long the seeds are viable. I usually propagate via cuttings. The seeds do sprout though but take months to sprout.

Got seeds from Kaz last year. Have bunches of trees to see how the fruit turns out in a few years. Grew other seeds from local trees that aren't anything special for grafting but I'm tempted to see the fruits on all the seedlings from Kaz.

Pm'd you. Gmail wasn't working on my phone. Think I figured it out now so if you'd rather I email you let me know.

Lots of wild muscadine in my area. Many actually have cultivar worthy fruits too. Found one that has marble sized pink skinned grapes. Really cool specimen. Otherwise most wild ones here are dark purplish. There is other wild grapes. What I believe are river Bank grapes or Vitis riparia. Could be wrong there but they are quite good albeit small. I do actually forage them though because they are good enough out of hand. Not grape season right now though. Could get you seeds in a few months.

There's a freestanding lone bush of these near my work I'd assume was bought at a conventional store like home depot. Has no pollinators nearby and doesn't have seeds in the fruit but they are really good eating. Fruit size is erratic but many large ones every year. Really enjoy them. Being that it's a lone bush they definitely produce without pollination but just no seeds in the fruit. No idea how long the bush has been there but it is huge. Don't believe the people whose property it's on even touch the fruit. It's just at the end of a super long driveway near the roadside so I stop and pick a few yearly. Hopefully the two I just planted in my yard will fruit this year. Flowered last two years in the pots but didn't hold the fruit to maturity.

Don't know how far you want to travel but Just Fruits and Exotics usually has pineapple guava.

Many of these species are available for pickup here in the FL panhandle already this season. Some stuff may be shippable. Pm me for details on particular species.

Thanks! DG

Just waking up now. Buds starting to grow on the tubers.

Last call for this round of seeds before they are too far into germination to send off. Hit me up quickly if interested.

Anyone got any dormant southern pecan, black walnut, or other nut varieties that will work in the FL panhandle? Like young seedling trees.

I have a good handful of golden Dorsett apple cuttings I could take. Definitely would trade for any other low chill apple, pears, Asian pear, persimmon, or Mulberry varieties I don't have.

Didn't think about him. Did meet the guy once at a permaculture event in which he was doing grafting tutorials. I'll check his website.  Thanks!

Really want to get some jujube trees going on my homestead. None of the ones I got in the past made it. Suppose moving root runners or seedling trees while dormant is best. Root runners of already mature trees would be ideal but anything works. Hit me up!

Many germinated seeds available. Germinated seeds 4 for $1. Minimum order of 16 seeds at $4 plus applicable shipping. Will send usps first class package with tracking in a box to prevent damages to seeds. Limited time offer only available until seeds are too far into sprouting. I'll plant whatever is left unsold and offer seedling trees down the road.

Haven't got any replies myself yet. Best of vibes to the both of us finding some seed.

Got my first crop of brown select satsumas this year. Bought the tree at just fruits and exotics 2 to 3 seasons ago. They were pretty good but not the absolute greatest. As the tree settles in better they should get better I'd think.

A seed grown Satsuma in a friend's yard was epically good. First time it fruited this year. Said the tree had been there a long time. It's definitely worth trying to propagate this one. Planted seeds but I'll try grafting a piece onto a tree in my yard.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: I can't taste fruit

Had the covids pretty badly back in July. Beat me up for about 2 weeks and my wife a week or so longer than that. Strange array of symptoms for sure. At a week in I suddenly couldn't breathe one day badly and feared death most of that day and partially for the next 2 days. Toughed it out without hospitalization. I'm more afraid of them than death for various reasons. Did loose smell entirely for about 5 days and taste heavily altered for about the same time frame. Did come back to full normal as it cleared up in general. Others I know have gone months without regaining normal smell and taste and one guy after recovering fully for awhile then all of a sudden certain things smell like an ash tray and gasoline. Otherwise he's all good just those senses messed up.

On a side note thanks to all you whom used your freedom choice to do as you saw fit for yourself but still completely respect others who wouldn't make that same choice for themselves. That's America and that's the freedom of choice and respect we should all share and encourage despite philosophical differences. We need that mentality more than ever right now.
