Chris at Truly Tropical in Delray Beach and Alex at Tropical Acres in West Palm.  I also second the recommendation for Julian at Lara Farms. All 1st class nurseries.

My neighbor in the same suburban development --  I never asked him where he got this idea about getting a Dwarf Hawaiian mango tree. But last March he asked me where he could buy Dwarf Hawaiian. By some cosmic synchronicity he was talking to someone who knew. I sent him to Chris at Truly Tropical where he got his Hawaiian and a Carrie too. So now he has these two plus a much older tree that seems like Keitt. It is late season for sure.

I don't have an extensive shopping comparison among them all, but will give a shout out to ANaturalFarm in Howie-In-the-Hills, since this is a Florida thread. I have gotten a few things there, which are not stocked here in N.C. nurseries.

For Miami area I would definitely checkout Lara Farms for Camito, Mameys and much more

I live in Palm Beach County and have bought tons of trees from Lara Farms. Julian is the best person to deal with. Its funny because I live super close to Excalibur and they constantly have diseased plants and rip everyone off with their pricing.

Chris at Truly Tropical comes in a close 2nd for me.

Is it true that Excalibur isn't what it used to be?

If you want diseased plants and super crazy priced everything they are good for that. I live 3 blocks from them and avoid like the plague.

That's sad.  Thanks for the update.  It looks like making the trip up to TreesNMore is worth it.

I knew it. I knew I couldn't be the only one who had disease problems with that nursery. That including their bad service is why I quit dealing with them.

For Mangos Alex at Tropical Acres in West Palm
General purpose nurseries, Pine Island, Als' fruit trees, Lara Farms, Richard Lyon's in the Redlands
Dustin at D's in Cutler Bay is expensive but has top notch stock are rare stuff. Plants are in most excellent condition, the total opposite of Excalibur.
TREES N' MORE near Palm City was a pleasant surprise. Nice selection of healthy trees at very reasonable prices.
Spyke's Grove in Davie sometimes is worth a look.
Those are about my main sources.

Thanks for the mentions everyone. We appreciate the love and trying to crank out as many trees as possible right now.

Lots of great nurseries talked about. Julian Lara is a friend and does great work producing rare tropicals.

Some new ones out in the Loxahatchee area have emerged in the last couple years that will make some noise too.
