Just a heads-up, but Tobias Spanner (rarepalmseeds.com) has an absolutely horrendous reputation within the industry, and Iím sorry to say itís well-deserved. Occasionally, youíll get ~60-70% germination rate from a seed packet, but maybe 90% of the seed packets he ships deliver a 0% germ. Iíve gotten seeds from him that were just a fragile seed coat with holes where insects had burrowed in. If you attempt to contact them about it, your repeated emails will go unanswered for months, if they ever get answered at all, and they make zero attempt to make it right. Itís not just me - I know several other growers whoíve had the same experience.

Oh, and Iíve also seen posts from him on other sites where heís responded to negative reviews by getting belligerent and threatening to sue people.

Not worth it, when there are so many solid vendors out there.

I have not had any bad experiences with rarepalmseeds.com I have ordered palms, cycads, trees and some fruit over a number of years.

Germination has varied some over 90% some50% some 10 and some zero but overall I have been pretty happy with them. They even refunded me once when the germinated seeds were clearly not what I bought. I took a photos of the seedlings and they credited my card.

Given the huge variety of seeds they offer I think they do well.

I have repeatedly tried to get on www.flyingfoxfruits.com website and I can't access it (from Uganda). Is it still running?

I see his posts on YouTube what is the best way to access or get in contact?

Thanks

Would love some tips on anyone that sells seed and will ship internationally?  I know with COVID itís become an issue for some and/or shipping costs have gone through the roof.

Hey all!
Iíve looked at everrry website in this topic, searched the forums and messaged a seller I thought may have access to a seed however I am completely out of luck so far! Iím looking for Dabai / Canarium odontophyllum seeds, native to Borneo.
I wonder if anyone has seen seed sellers specialising in Borneo natives or if anyone has heard of these seeds being sold this year?
Hugely appreciate it!

There are several good Bornean sellers on this forum, Maryoto and Adhyt are two of them. Can vouch for Adhyt, but both get really great reviews overall.

I just purchased and received some plinia seeds from https://www.farwellfruitfarm.com/. Seeds arrived quickly and were well packaged. I'll be buying more seeds from them in the future.

Beware when buying from Fruitlovers.  Ordered seeds over 3 months ago and after many many emails I was told a few weeks ago that they were out of some of the seeds I ordered.  I requested the refund they offered.  Now, a month later I have no refund and still no seeds.

You answered my many emails using fruitlovers@fruitlovers.com, when you offered to refund me for the seeds you no longer had and when  said you were sending out the other seeds.  Is there another email you prefer me using at this time?
