Got the box yesterday! Thanks Brad! Fruit looks awesome.

I just reached out the USDA and asked about whether they would refuse entry to seeds that have germinated in transit. 

Ultimately they said that it would be circumstantial and they would have to see the package before making a decision, but, to look at the USDA's plants for planting manual and see if the plant has a restricted live plant material status.  Eugenia spp. is one of the species that is restricted entry.  So be careful if planning on going through the USDA permit system. 

Plants for planting manual:

Are you getting a permit coming into the US? Is the phytosanitary something required coming from brazil?

How are people's seedlings doing here? It sounds an awful lot like most people's seedlings have died?

I haven't lost any seedlings since I started selling them and have about 7 or so still in 4" pots that are doing great.
I'd be curious to hear about mortality rates on these. 

I'm considering planting out a bunch of my Yangmei and Myrica esculenta into the ground. I've got a 15g male and a 15 g female as well as the grafted BIQI, that is nowhere near as awesome as Simon's.  I also have a handful of seedlings.

I'm wondering if anyone has thoughts on planting going into fall or planting come spring. 

It's definitely fake spring right now and all my Myrica are pushing.

I think redwood boxes or the IBC tote would be where I'd go next.  At that size you will only be able to move with a pallet jack or a forklift or something, I'd imagine? Redwood looks good and probably would be comparable in cost, although I've scored an IBC tote for 50$.

Its worth growing for sure. Got to try the fruit in Hawaii and it was definitely pleasant and a decent seed to flesh ratio. I truthfully have a hard time resisting the surely cold hardy eugenias.

The stock update has finally come!

Eugenia leitonii, Eugenia zuccarinii, Eugenia pseudopsidium

Syzygium smithii, Syzygium leuhmanii

Vasconcellea x (palandensis x pubescens)

& one or two Myrciaria guaquiea

How's it everyone?

I am interestd in purchasing Pouteria lucuma seeds. I am particularly interested in finding seeds of the moist type varieties which I know exist in southern California!  It would be great if anyone has a connection or knows someone, I would be very stoked to trade and or purchase seeds (up to 100 or more) , fruit, grafted/airlayered plants.  Thanks for your time.

Awesome!   potted some up to 5's and left others in 1's and they have all been boosting. The one in a 5 certainly is very large and the ones have been boosting as well. Can't wait to see these set flowers as they seem like a pretty viable option for northern california. 

I love runts. I pick and make sure to grow out my runts in field trials.  We humans have an obsession with picking vigorous plants, yet we may be missing more desirable characteristics by being blinded by one objective.

How's it everybody?

Just posted up some awesome new things on the website and should have a couple more getting thrown on by Saturday!  Keep your eyes posted.

New Stock : Eugenia zuccarinii, Syzygium smithii, Syzygium leuhmannii, Eugenia leitonii and maybe some others, we'll see!

Thanks for your support.


From what I've seen, secondary compounds don't seem to be majorly limiting to the growth of other plants.  I think Brugmansia probably is a great option for a  chop and drop, definitely something I'll be incorporating as it's super herbaceous and fast growing

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Psidium firmum... anyone growing it?
« on: September 23, 2021, 10:34:27 AM »
Howdy everyone,

I'm reviving this thread because I think we may not actually have Psidium firmum.  I've seen two botanists/Plant people in brazil posting pictures of a Psidium spp. with much more glabrous leaves and they are identifying it as Psidium firmum.



Anyone growing a Psidium firmum that looks like this?  Is anyone growing Psidium australe? 

I have grown quite a few Uvaria chamae and they have over wintered and gone on to season 2.  I could probably spare a 1 gallon if you are interested in one

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: First fruiting - Campomanesia guazumifolia

Very cool! Is the adamantium from Ben's tree? I think I may have heard that what he has isn't actually xanthocarpa? Maybe I'm wrong.

Sounds really awesome, thanks for posting this!  I'm looking forward to my Campomanesia collection coming into fruiting.  I have a bunch of Campomanesia hirsuta in 5gs if you are ever interested in trading or want one.  They seem pretty vigorous and frost hardy.

 I have just planted about 5 C. hirsuta, 2 C. laurifolia, and 1 C. guazumifolia.  I have back ups in pots because I'm afraid I'm going to kill them too, haha.

Probably best not to sell Wampee due to the restrictions in place in San Diego County because of the recent HLB outbreak.

Howdy everyone!

Big ol sale going on so that I can fund some irrigation development at my property and expand my plantings!
All orders over 200$ qualify for a free Rollinia shirt, Long sleeve or short sleeve!

Thank you!

« on: August 28, 2021, 12:00:21 PM »
I've grown them in community pots before and haven't had that result.  I'd imagine it's some genetic thing.  Could be some new super precocious Feijoa variety, what are you gonna name em?! haha

What is the sp cerrado you have Brian? Is that one of your own collections?

I also have a bunch of rare Psidiums, some are on my website,

I also have some species from Brazil that I would be interested in selling or trading that arent on my website
