Ends tonight! Just under 3 hours to go!

A couple of new listings on eBay this week. The fan favorite Desert King and a very large Purple 8.

Both of these bad boys are rooted and almost 3’ tall. Check out the listings, both start at just $1!

NOTE: If buying from California or Arizona the plants will have the roots removed, but still happy to ship.

+1 on the raccoons going for your ducks. We raise ducks and have stopped raising smaller breeds. They are more hesitant, in our experience, to go after bigger ducks like say a silver appleyard.

We lost three Indian runners to raccoons.

Could you be referring to the golden soursop? It’s pretty uncommon and quite a bit larger than a sugar apple.

Yeah you just never know what they’re going to sell for on eBay.

It’s just hard to get right now

Some rareness up for sale this week on eBay.

A ~ 9” piece of Thick King, direct from Spicy Exotics! I used the other half for grafting and decided to offer up this approximately 9” piece for anyone that missed out, as these sold out almost immediately.

Bidding starts at $1!

I think that’s pretty fair. I’d be surprised if they last long

Everyone has their own opinion on the value of cuttings.

Started the bid at $1 and I’ll let the masses decide what it’s worth, no reserve.

All that’s guaranteed is that you’re bidding on a real cutting of Ohana Express.

Some rareness up for auction this week on eBay.

Nice thick cutting, approximately 20” long.

Mother plant comes from a cutting that was acquired from the one and only Spicy Exotics!

No reserve, starts at only $1! Someone may get a steal:

Hi Brad,

How long will pups to fruit?  If one or two years, I will take them all.

Thanks,
Al

It depends, but in Florida you can definitely get them to start growing fruit within 2 years. Not sure if it would take longer in Cali. I’ve seen pineapple tops start fruiting in 12 months in Florida

Frank, around what age did your Coronata Restinga start to produce for you? Also, was it from seed or graft?

Coronata Restinga seems to vary quite a bit on fruiting age, from what I’ve seen others report

Mine is grafted on Sabara and I got it 5-6 years ago from Adam as a 1 or 3 gallon (I forget :P). First flowerings this year. I'm guessing that TFF member Achetadomestica tree it is from the same batch.

Wow, 5-6 years from graft, that’s almost what the seedlings are “supposed” to produce in. Thanks for the info!

It was a pleasure meeting Nathaniel today. Thanks for the great trees!

17
PMed you — very interested. If you still have it I’ll take the big one with the strigipes grafted.

Just wanted to say thanks to Frank - mangos were delicious and scions were perfect 👍🏼

This is my second or third time buying from Frank and I’m always satisfied 👍🏼

Ya about 4ish feet when the reds start fruiting iv herd.

It really depends. I have seen reds over 5 feet that have yet to bloom.

Some bloom smaller than 3 feet.

If you can provide proof of shipment — PayPal will not take the funds out of your account. Process would then shift to the shipping company, in this case USPS.

Still appreciate the heads up though!

I have a mature mexicola avocado tree and I don’t pick until fully purple. I’ve noticed irregular ripening if picked green. I wait until the avocado comes away by lifting it up and having the panicle snap the fruit loose.


22
How different are these from the palora?

They’re similar in sweetness. Smaller and less productive from what I have seen.

24
Interested in a Patupi (short cycle) banana plant?
