they have cuban mangosteen (garcinia aristata) on tradewinds! best of luck on your search, maybe snag me a few if you run into some rare species  ;)

Going to buy a lot of seeds for some of these species if I find them so I can definitely share a few, don't hold your breath though took me 2 years to find cherapu.

My seeds g. aristata seeds had pretty good germination from Trade Winds

 I saw they had a good variety of garcinia seeds on there but wasn't sure of their viability. I'll give them a try if no one of the forum has any, thanks.

I use this basic citrus spray https://www.amazon.com/Southern-Ag-01902-Citrus-Nutritional/dp/B00A51Y8ZM/ref=asc_df_B00A51Y8ZM/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=193139379506&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=10080865088591328402&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9026839&hvtargid=pla-310724743333&psc=1

dilute it 1/2 what the bottle says, and DRENCH the leaves within the first 5 minutes of official sunset. Plants in general have a transitory period of 15-20 minutes, starting at sunset, that heightens the usefulness of foliar spraying. I use it every 3 months, the bottle says apply every 6 months I believe. Figure more ready supply of nutrients and less chance of leaf burn. Many acidic fruits have similar needs, this has worked amazing for me so far.

Will try this out, thanks.

I think it is a nutrient issue. I haven't figured out exactly what nutrient or nutrients are lacking, but I have similar growth on my lemon drop mangosteen. Since growth like that has occurred in the middle of my Southeastern summer, with its surplus of humidity and heat, I highly doubt it is an environmental issue. Like hammer524, my imbe is unaffected. But, my achachairu also shows no signs of deformed growth. My seashore mangosteens' new growth is lighter in color than their earlier growth, but the leaves are not deformed in shape.

You might be right thank you. From this post (https://tropicalfruitforum.com/index.php?topic=40009.msg394118#msg394118) where the plants look similar to mine that was also brought up. I'm using osmocote 14-14-14 and figured that would encompass all that the plants needed.

Anyone else ever seen their garcinias new growth look like this and what causes it? First guess was low humidity while I was gone for a week but the garcinias that are right next to these are pushing normal new growth.

The trees look pretty small, so about how long would you be waiting to expect fruit from them?

Not a tree but pineapples should work

Seems a bit too much for some of their plants at full price, sellers on this forum could probably get me a way better deal as charging $70($35 is better too bad they have to make it 50% off to make it that price) for a soursop in a 1 gallon when i could buy a 3 gallon from Adam for only $40. I'm sure their trees are good just not for my wallet :-\

Would have loved to see the first Durian sex cult....

How exactly did you come across these?

Got my jaboticaba, miracle fruit and lemon drop mangosteens today and they look great
