I sent an email to Kelly, but I don't suppose you have a price for the spirito, 10g escalarte and 15g red?

Just to let people know, if you sort the page by "large photos and columns", it's much easier to navigate

Sorry I don’t know anything about prices. Just helping to spread the word.

Helping out a friend sell off some of his collection in LA. 

Pickup only.  Fcfs.  You can email inquiries to:

Added Sri gading chemp jack hybrid

Hey everyone I've looked in many nurseries online, most are out of stock or very overpriced for a small plant. Is there anyone who's selling a 3 gallon with shipping for a decent price? I'd love to order.

let me get back to you. I may have one that will fit your needs.

Added germinated kasturi mangoes

Tim Thompson in Ventura county.

Ughhck. 7 headz. Yeah. When you know they’re not grafted and it doesn’t matter..
I can’t go there though, that’s another chapter as well.

No a different guy.  Youngish hapa guy unless he was using a pseudonym on fb.

i used to shoot invasive groupers and put them in holes around the house.  i think i dug at least a foot down.

slowly over time, i saw a bulge form.  then one night, i heard this <pffffffft> sound.  then a few seconds later, dead grouper smell infiltrated the house.  so be mindful of the wind and neighbors just in case your attempts fail!

I know a couple people growing it but none fruiting. and your right , I would not reveal that info.

What I was trying tip toe around is: What are you gonna do with Wani in SLO but kill it and kiss your $ good bye ? I overstand that people do that day in and day out, it's their right, but rare seeds and seedlings that come around never should go to safe places first I believe. It's theoretical anyhow though, never seen a seedling for sale here or anywhere.  If a seedling did somehow come up for sale , it needs to go to somewhere where it can live and maybe fruit. Not sold to the highest or first bidder.
I have had people trying to convince me to grow Mango's in central CA for a long time, since the "Mango Professor" cold hardy mango debacle that I poo poo'd all along the way and turned out to be a total fraud ( he was sued by some CRFG chapters).  Steve in los osos had a manila fruiting in a high tunnel but ya know, not really.
North of Pt. conception along the coast is not warm enough, go inland and it's too cold. SF East Bay and some Delta area's are marginal because the large bodies of water and asphalt mitigate the cold and they are inland enough the fog doesn't swamp their growing season. I love Mango's.

Jeff Crawford was selling some on his ebay store a while back.  $150 a pop for 1-2footers. 

Mango professor...what was his name again?  Trucker or something, right?  That was a sh*tshow for sure. Ahh..memory lane.


Hello fellow fruit addicts, I have some seedlings available in the nursery. Shipping to all 50 states is included. I will be dropping new seedlings daily so favorite my shop to get the drop!

Inga cabelo "Fuzzy Ice Cream Bean" possible dwarf to small tree
The fruits are delicious and very refreshing for in natura consumption, especially if they are left in the fridge for a few hours. The tree is ornamental and great for decorating small gardens. The flowers are of excellent quality in nectar and pollen production, and therefore very suitable for beekeepers. Fruits are firm and because fruit flies are horny, they do not attack, a quality that gives great potential for marketing fruits in nature. By the small size this species can be successfully cultivated in urban arborization.

Pouteria gardneri "Sapotinha" Very sweet edible skin.
Sapotinha, also known as Pouteria Gardneri, is a scarce fruit belonging to the Sapotaceae family, and it is indigenous to Paraguay, Southern, Eastern, and Northern Brazil, and Bolivia. This fruit thrives in both full sun and dappled shade and is commonly found in the wild, growing on well-drained clay soils and moderately fertile soils. The fruit is typically harvested from the wild and consumed locally. It contains a single seed enveloped in a very sweet, juicy pulp similar to jaboticaba. The skin is edible!

Inga spectalabis var. Amazonas Giant

Pouteria ramiflora “Curriola"
Pouteria ramiflora is a species of Pouteria, originating from the state of Acre. It bears fruit twice a year and is highly tolerant of cold temperatures. The mother plant from which we collected seeds was able to withstand temperatures as low as -2°C without any harm.

Some have described as the taste as a blend between an Abiu (Pouteria cainito) and an Avocado.

Campomanesia xanthocarpa "Gaibiroba Boliviana”
Gabiroba is a semi-deciduous tree with a tall, dense, pyramid-shaped crown, ranging in height from 4 - 15 metres. Native from Minas Gerais and Mato Grosso do Sul to Rio Grande do Sul in almost all forest formations of those regions. The edible fruits are greatly appreciated within the plant's native range, where it is gathered from the wild and also cultivated in home gardens and orchards.Fruits are eaten raw, The round yellow or orange fruits  with juicy, firm and sweet-tasting pulp

Pedal Very large rainforest tree to 120ft. Eaten fresh. Seeds are also edible. The pedalai comes from northern Borneo, the Philippines, Sulawesi and the Moluccas. It is a very rare specimen in Borneo. It is occasionally seen growing on the steep, clay hillsides of the inland regions. The foliage consists of very large (40 X 25 cms) handsome, dark green leaves, spectacularly digitately lobed when young but entire when mature. The pedalai bears some very beautiful, eye-catching, bright orange skinned fruits, globular in shape and about 15 cms in diameter. Small soft protrusions on the fruit surface sprout curly, yellow hairs like a giant rambutan. Pedalai is similar to the marang inside, but has a superior flavor, firmer flesh and slightly larger segments. The sweet, creamy-white flesh is easy to eat and like the marang the segments cling to the central core when the skin is removed. As with all the Artocarpus species the seeds are edible and those of the pedalai are considered to be some of the tastiest. They may be boiled, roasted or fried. Fruit odor is not as strong as it is with the fruit of the marang, Artocarpus odoratissimus.

Plinia sp Grimal
Fruits at 5-10 years old, mature trees are freeze tolerant to the low 20's, one of the top 100 most delicious fruits on the planet.  Taste is similar to Sabara Jaboticaba (see above) but larger fruit (up to 4cm), thicker skin with a longer hold period (3+ days unrefrigerated) after harvest, firmer flesh, and a more mild but satisfying flavor that you can eat pounds of per sitting.  60%+ pulp by weight, produces at 5-10 years old and bears a few times per year after 2-5 years of fruiting if kept irrigated and fertilized.  Germination rates of 80%+ will continue well past 3 months from harvest.  Needs daily watering and pH <7.5 either by water, soil, or amendments.  Perfect for container culture.

what sorcery is this? i was going to stop buying plants, but somehow you dragging me back into the thick of it.

I've never seen a Want seedling offered here or anywhere else.
I think it's rare enough and hard enough to get out it should go to a safe climate where it can grow and fruit.
To my knowledge there are zero known fruiting tree's growing in a place where it is even semi easy to get seed from.
My best guess for who might have one fruiting anywhere in the americas would be Peter in costa.
I was surprised no one fruited it in Hawaii yet, unless they got a secret.
I really enjoyed Wani in Bali and would love to grow it too.
My friend lives there for years and can't get seed out.
It's not so good to get busted with it in your luggage leaving.

in hawaii, snitches get stitches.   ha ha ha. jk.

added more seeds

Added inga feuillei seeds

Had Vitors seed list in my emails for years it was torture to see the list so i finally deleted it because of no communication arg.I did manage to get a few seeds from him.I think life got in the way and it became very difficult to get seeds out then,now their is political turmoil. Seed collecting is difficult job and thankless at times. Appreciate them and take advantage of what they have as it could be fleeting.

Definitely appreciate the stuff Joe does now

Mike you have pics of the Regina surinam?
