If anyone is willing to trade more than get paid I have lots of fruits and tropical perennial veggies and such available right now. Ice cream bean, native persimmon,  wonderful pomegranate, anatto trees, etc. In the tropical veggies section there's a more complete list of things on my threads.

Thats the bigger red kind? Looks good. Another member with yellow seedlings beat you to me but I'll see what their next response is and go from there.

I have yellow cattley guava starters in 1 gallons, ranging from 7-16". I'm in Deltona just off of I4.

I'm way up around the bend of the panhandle.  Not sure exactly where you are but I'll look it up. Are you possibly willing to unpot a few seedlings and ship them?

I have seedlings of this guava

I am in Orlando area.

Thats an interesting one there. Unfortunately im a good 6 hour drive from you. May I ask the same question as above. Are you able to ship? How big are they and what pot size? If gallon sized or better thats pretty big to ship.

I have some funds but I'll have to see what I can do dependent on your responses. Im set to buy something else here shortly from another member. Only waiting to hear back. Should still have a bit of play money left though.

Anyone got the yellow form in small plants or seeds?

May I ask why theres a lot of interest in this species?  Know it has some uses but mostly a wild plant and ornamental here.

They grow wold here.  Unfortunately probably won't survive being uprooted this time of year. Definitely best to gey potted plants right now.  The ones in my yard are huge and definitely can't be shipped unfortunately.

In a few weeks I'll have a bunch rooted. Already have them in process or I'd send cuttings.

Yes that looks like a winner. Definitely seems like the right plant. Thanks!

Now to get these growing on my properties...

Tropical Fruit Discussion / What is this wild florida berry?
« on: August 08, 2021, 09:04:50 PM »
Appears to be in the blueberry family.  Sweet with good edibilty so says my buddy that found these. Doesn't quite look like a true Huckleberry,  sparkleberry, or blueberry. Wild blueberries are done for the season up here in the panhandle too. The bush in question is in Milton, FL. Huckleberry persists on the bushes way longer than blueberries but aren't good. Mostly grainy and tasteless. Leaves are usually rounded from wild bushes ive seen. Many sparkleberry or farkleberry are bitter though technically edible but not palatable in most cases. What the heck is this thing??? My best guess is that it is a sparkleberry of some sort thats not bitter and good quality. What y'all thinking?

I have a lot of them rooting right now.  Be 2-4 weeks befor they are really established.  Another member wanted some but there is plenty in progress. What piper species did you get? Betel or saramentosum?

Very similar environmental conditions here it sounds. I think I'll probably wait for spring to try grafting my seedlings.  Probably will have a bunch more bacon hybrid seedlings ready to graft by then too. If you or anyone has seeds now for any of the at least hardy to the lower 20s varieties I would buy a few.

Did manage to get a few small trees that are doing well fortunately.  However I still want a bunch of seeds if possible.  Would trade or buy them if the price is right. Would take 100+ seeds if you get them. What value do you want outta them if you can collect a bunch?

There definitely is wild true cherries here. Probably Prunus serotina or viriginiana. I do have chickasaw plums on my properties already.  There is whatever true wild cherries around but I see them up in peoples yards and such and cant access them without maybe getting in trouble. Maybe one day I'll see a tree in fruit I can get to. As far as I know the wild cherries are edible but maybe not the most tasteful.  There's medicinal value I would want available on my land as well as almost anything cooked and sweetened like a jam etc would be good enough. 

Very nice looking trees there. Unfortunately Gainesville is pretty far for me. Estimated 5 or so hour drive. Im way up around the bend of the panhandle near Panama city.  It can get very cold here. Since ive been here it hit 18F one night the first winter. Every decade or so the locals say it may hit around 15F. However since that first year its not hardly broken the high to mid 20s. I think I can definitely get them to grow here but need the coldest hardy types like joey or fantastic. Would try others too as long as they handle the lower 20s at least. Would try to microclimate their environment for sure.

Try to be fair about pricing. A friend on here sent me loads of seeds and I virtually sprouted them all and now have dozens of small trees. Really nice looking at the moment.  Only need a few for myself. Need homes for many, many of them.

Out of the varieties you have I'll research which are the most cold hardy. Are they mature trees the scions would be coming from? I have 4 seedling trees that are healthy enough to attempt grafting.  I probably should wait for spring though. Afraid if they dont take enough the cokd may take them outdoors way up here or won't be strong enough to survive being brought in over and over all winter. Its pretty cold up here.

Have many young anatto trees for sale or trade. 4" potted and off to a great start. $5 each plus shipping or agreed trade.

Thanks!  DG

Looking for wild cherries that are edible yhat grow here in the panhandle.  Tried seeds from elsewhere and the seedlings hated it here. As long as they are edible im cool with whatever varieties.  Tried transplanting seedlings from a friends property. All died. He no longer lives there so I cannot try again when they go dormant.  Thanks for any help!

If anyone in the north florida panhandle region has wild cherroes of any sort and they are edible please let me know. They do hrow where I am but can never catch a tree I can get to with fruit on it. Tried two different species from up north and another from Germany and they just don't do well here and eventually die. Would like some from my actual region.

Thanks! DG

I'll be on the hunt for these cultivars as well. Probably in spring but if I had to Id try grafting some seedlings at any point other than winter. Seeds of any of these welcome too.

Thanks I'll look
