WANTED: Annona leptopetala & drought-tolerant relatives' seeds
« on: December 23, 2020, 09:37:38 PM »
I am seeking fresh seeds of uncommon Annonaceae with tolerance of seasonal arid conditions and/or calcareous soil. I have read Annona leptopetala may have some potential, but I cannot find a reliable (preferably USA) source for seeds. Please message me if you know a good source! Thanks!

I'm on the same hunt and living in the same location!

Others to watch for, that may work are: Annona bullata, Annona vepretorum and Annona senegalensis 

Someone was recently selling seeds on here, from Brazil -- keep your eye out for them.

Have you tried annona glabra? From my observations it appears that it is an annona with very high adaptability. Drought in the upper layers of the soil is not a problem for Glabra, as long as it can find some moisture in the deeper layers of the soil.
