Updated list of plants and prices.  I also have 12 different types of bananas and I sell pups for $20 each.

Awesome trees you have for sale!

Could you share what type of pots those are and where you purchased them from?

Those are pots I got from Lowes that can also be used as water features with ponds, etc.

Nelita Cherry of the Rio Grande are all sold.

I still have everything else.

I can do $600 firm on the 25g Coronata Restinga jaboticaba otherwise I will put it in a 45g in the spring and the price will be at least $800.  Let me know if you are interested.

I'm in Titusville, East Coast Central Florida.  I do not ship.

I have the following in addition to the jaboticabas I have on another post.

3 varieties of Muscadine grape in 5g pots or larger (they are dormant right now):
Granny Val 5g for $50
Dixie Red 5g for $50
Ison 15g for $80

Black Suriname Cherry (tastes MUCH better than the common red fruited plant)
3g for $40
1g for $10

Arabica Coffee plants
7g for $50

Grumichama (variety from Australia)
1g for $20

Red jabo seedlings

The leaves and growth habit looks more like a yellow jabo but hard to tell.  What color is the fruit when ripe?

Still have everything available.

Pics of the 25g Coronata Restinga.  It stands about 7-8ft high including the pot.

I'm located in Titusville on the East Coast of Central Florida.  I have 2 Red Hybrid Jaboticabas in 15g pots - both have been fruiting for years and stand about 6 feet tall in the pots - $500 each.  I also have a 25g Coronata Restinga that has been growing for 10 years and is now in a 25g pot (but desperately needs to go in to a 45g or in the ground).  The Coronata has not fruited yet, but is due anytime based on the age.  I'm selling it for $800.  In addition, I have a 25g Red Hybrid in a 25g pot (also desperately needs to go into a 45g or the ground).  Fruits prolifically year round.  I'm selling it for $1000.

15g Yellow Jabo for $200 and a 5g Grimal Jabo for $120.

Lots of seedling Red Jabos

7g Pitangatuba $80

(2) 7g Coffee Arabica plants $50 each

5g Seedless Pineapple Orange tree $80 (really needs to go into a 15g)

And more fruiting plants you might be interested if you stop by.  I will not ship any plants.  Please ping me and if you are serious, I'll send you my number so we can communicate via text.  Thanks, Nate

ALL THE PLANTS HAVE BEEN SOLD.  Will post again when I have more!

Plants are in either 7 or 15 gallon pots; $200 each.  I've been growing these for years and they have all flowered and fruited.  I have 6 - 8 plants total available.  Price is firm and I will not ship.  I am located in Titusville on the East Coast of Central Florida.  Ping me if you are interested.  Thanks, Nate

I have Kari and Fwang Tung and like both.  They are very different in color, shape, and flavor which is nice.  I can't speak to B10, Bell, or SK.  I would like to find someone in Central Florida who has those varieties so I could try them.

First, I want to apologize for not responding since my OP in 2016!

I grew my plant gradually up into a 7 gallon, then planted in the ground here in C Florida a few months ago.  Seems to be doing alright in an area where it gets morning sun, then filtered shade in the afternoon.  Also, seems cold-tolerant, but we've had a warm winter so far.  It's about 3 ft now and has flowered and fruited, but the fruit never make it past the green stage (I'm assuming it's the squirrels).  It also does not set many fruit compared to how much it flowers and I'm thinking that cross pollination from another plant would help.

***Both plants have been sold.  I only have very small plants now less than 1 ft high.

I have 2 large red hybrid jaboticaba plants in 7 gallon pots I am looking to sell for $100 each.  They stand about 5-6 ft high in the pots and both have already flowered and fruited.  Local pickup only in Titusville, FL or I can meet up with in the Central Florida area.  I am also open to trade for other plants.

I would be interested in getting scions of Pine Island Gold at some point.  Is there a particular root stock that is best for grafting scions onto with starfruit in general or does it matter?

Anyone growing and getting consistent, good quality fruit from Chinese Jujube in Florida?  If so, I would be interested in knowing what varieties you are growing.

I had a Chinese Jujube at my last property in Central Florida.  Grew well, but never set any fruit after 1 year in the ground.  It was either grafted or grown from cutting, but no idea what cultivar it was.

None of the carambola varieties typically sold in nurseries require cross-pollination to set fruit.

I've grown Arkin, Kari (Kary), Fwang Tung, Sri Kambangan - all of them fruit well on their own.

Besides mulberry, [grafted] starfruit is one of the most productive fruit trees at a young age.

What's the scientific name of Pakistan Mulberry? I guese it is not a variety of Morus nigra,

This looks to be a very information site:

Morus macroura (Himalayan mulberry)

There are undoubtedly many different cultivars of Morus macroura in the US, but most are referred to as either white, red, or black 'Pakistan' or 'Shahtoot' (which translates from the Persian language as 'King Mulberry'), though some cultivars or hybrids of Morus alba are also called 'Pakistan' because they possess elongated fruit (or called Morus alba in error).

Hi Mark, I would love to get some seeds from that if you are willing to send to FL.  I have another black Surinam Cherry from Adam that is on the verge of fruiting, so I would love to grow both and compare.  Thanks, Nate

What Cultivar is the 25 Gal Plumeria Any pics ?
Thanks Ed

Ed, I don't know the exact cultivar, but it's pink with a yellow center.  The tree is dormant now, so there's no leaves or flowers.

I'm only 10 miles south of you, Adam, in Maitland and the temps didn't drop below 40F for me.  I'm on the south side of a lake as well, so that mitigates the cold.  I'm going to miss this micro-climate once I leave this house and move to Maryland soon!  Selling almost all my plants but keeping the jabos and a few other things.

I am moving out of state and have to sell all my potted plants, many of them I have been growing for years and are now quite large and already bearing fruit.  You can contact me at or 3213682859 for address and appointment.  Nate

There's lots more... so come over and check it all out. What I don't sell before I move in January I'm giving to family - so get it while you can!

A few things:

There are very few things I would recommend planting lower than the surrounding soil, especially since plants tend to settle even deeper in the ground over time.  I would plant the top of the root ball even with the ground.  Naturally, mulch is going to be placed on top of that.  With jabo, I would recommend a few inches of mulch or even more.  Basically, I wouldn't purposely try to plant the jabo deeper than the surrounding soil, but the mulch will naturally be higher than the surrounding soil.

In your pic, you have grass growing very close to the plant.  Remove all grass (by hand, not round-up) within 3-4 feet of the plant and keep it away.  This will make a huge difference in moisture and nutrient uptake that would otherwise be taken up by the grass.

I would also echo what Adam has said in that the jabo seems to grow much better in a pot.  It's worth potting up gradually over a few years, then putting in the ground at a larger size.

Is "Coc" short for "Coconut" or is it a different mango cultivar?

For those growing papayas in a pot, what size pot are you using and is it fruiting sufficiently in that sized pot?
