Wanted:Mountain & Wild Papaya seeds
« on: June 02, 2021, 10:18:22 AM »
Hi guys, does anyone know where to buy Mountain or Wild Papaya seeds? I used to buy from Trade Winds, today these papayas grow in my house, but I want to increase my collection. I am also interested in Jarilla seeds.

I bought from Brian Laufer @ https://queenoftheamazon.squarespace.com

He has some mountain papaya cross as well.

Excellent germination on all the seeds I bought this year.. However be forewarned that the seeds may not be labelled, I had to guess which seeds were what

Yes, I've seen this site before,it has Vasconcellea pubescens x palandensis hybrid seeds, it's definitely interesting. Other types that he sells I already have in the collection. ;)

I bought in Trade Winds seeds, but they haven't sprouted yet, I'm still waiting.

Yeah, it is available online. Unfortunately a lot of seeds that Trade Winds sells are of low viability (in my experience). The other sources look a little sketchy to me.

All seeds from shops were collected in 2016, so germination is low.
I do have but not for sale for now.
