You can see my collector under my profile - I have several other (more common) species which are not included. I only collect fruiting plants. I have been on one of the Canarian islands some years back (Isla de Tenerife), and saw some old Dracaena plant - very impressive.
Regarding Tamarindus indica, the seeds sprout easy, but seedling grow a bit slow.

Yes you have a lot!
I am in the next island, la palma, and I live in the place most "infested" with those dragos!!!! And yes they can be impressive... and did you know the fruit is edible?

It is also medicinal and its honey is supposed to be very good according to a neighbour who once had some. But it needs 10 years before flowering. I know the tree is grown outside Canarias as an ornamental, and as it also grows well in containers. It is very resistant. I have a big one that has lost its bark all around, which is supposed to be impossible to stand for any tree, and I learned that it burned 20 years ago ! Still alive...

Hi - my major is in forestry, but I am working in the energy-sector currently, so cultivation of rare tropical fruits are more of a hobby.

Hi! I collect annonas in greenhouse (while 12 species). Previously you expressed an interest in Annona stenophylla (on "TropicalFruitForum"). You found these seeds? I found only Annona senegalensis. (((

If you find someone in Western Zimbabwe or Southern Zambia able to find these seeds, I am ready to transfer an advance $ 200-300 via PaiPal on postal and other expenses.
