I have a 25 Gallon Restinga for sale in the Bay Area. 5-6 feet tall.
Some other varieties that are fruiting right now for sale as well.
25 gal in bay area? that's a rare one then!

My last batch of seeds arrived in great shape, and now I want to try maprang/marian-plum again since mine always die.  I'm going to try a bunch of different soil types and see if that makes a difference.

PM sent
humidity i think is important.

athertonia diversifolia
mafai/baccaurea ramiflora added.

how big are you hoping to get?

Brian, first fruits I had are similar to the texture you describe.  I like sour fruits but the texture, fibers, and the sticky latex feeling left on my lips aren't really appealing to me.  These were just the first couple of fruits on a small plant and I have a few different plants so hopefully they will improve and one will have better texture and less latex.


There is great variability in the latex content.  Some pitangatubas are hard to eat.  I used them for rootstock for my sweeter, less latex  seedlings. 

Nice selection! I'm eyeing the dwarf orange pitanga...

so you're the SOB that has the higher bid now, huh?!


In my mind, a USDA inspection is a plus for the buyer because they can be pretty confident the plant is pest free and was just repotted in fresh soil less medium. I understand itís a hassle to have a handling time tacked on and some buyers wonít want to wait.

not wholly true.  i know couple inspectors that are pretty lazy at their job.  on the other end of the spectrum i know a few that take forever but they look at stuff really thorough.  but it's the principle.  for example, we got coqui frogs from puerto rico...  and you don't want queensland longhorn beetle coming from me to you..let alone lacewing bugs whacking the avos.

Fruiting Orange Crush in PR?
Check it : Established PR seller selling for 1/2 of you without the 10 day wait and new seller unknowns.

i will be honest, with my current job, i don't have the ability to just shoot down to the USDA station like my old job and get stuff inspected. 

Hopefully you will build your reputation and buyers will understand that it may take time to get their stuff. 

I am fortunate enough with the people that buy from me that if need be due to schedule or the length it takes me to prep seeds/plants I can push out delivery at over a week/two weeks.  Trust will be key. 

Good luck to you.

added some seeds.

bali salak

I just put eyes on the mother tree. she is beautiful. hiding in plain sight.
It must be good when the people in the middle charging double the farmers market price , which fluctuates like the durian stock exchange.

Honestly, i was surprised had this many. but alva folks when fertilize it so it's a bumper crop.  i was lucky to get what i got since everyone that knows goes and get what they can.

on a side note, you should look at oahu prices.  i think the demand will only go up.  once you get your farm pumping out its own durians, i hope you can look to shipping to oahu.  we're at minimum $13/15/lb.  Frankies good ones are going for $25/lb last year.

Pili nut

And FYI, what most people think of as mango seeds are really seed pods.  Don't bring those.

But what if you cut off the "pod" and clean the seeds/embryos inside? Seems like that should be ok?

yes.  but to be honest, unless your friend is a plant fiend, this is kind of a lot of stuff for them to do while on vacation.
