Very fresh Garcinia Humilis seeds. (aka. Achacha, Achachairu, Bolivian Mangosten)  $2.00/each + $5 shipping.  10 Seeds minimum.

I received seeds, fresh fruits, and a few cuttings from FLNATIVE.  Frank is a really nice guy, great seller, and sent lots of extra fruits to sample.  Really fast shipping, I got the order in 3 days and I'm in WA state.  Looking to place another order soon.

One year old mamey seedling in my greenhouse. Out of ignorance, I tried the fruit before it ripened and was disappointed. However, i heard its good if ripened on the tree, so i grew the seed.

Luak, how old are your trees?  They look great.

I bought my 3 gallon Calamondin about 1.5 years ago.  It's tripled in size and blossoms every couple of months all year long.  It's very prolific and puts out bunches, so branches need support at times when loaded with fruit. It does ripen fairly fast, but I've found that if I let the fruit ripen to to the point where it's falling off or coming off with little resistance, the taste is both sweet and sour and can be eaten straight. Ripened Calamondin juice and rind mixed with powdered sugar and a little butter makes a really great cake glazing. A wedge also makes a good garnish to a glass of ice water or glass of beer.  I've acquired 18 varieties of citrus trees in my greenhouse in the past couple of years.  A productive little Calamondin is nice to have around while I'm learning how to take care of the other trees so they will also grow up and bear fruit.
