I have too many Star Apple (aka Caimito, Chrysophyllum cainito) seedlings from mostly purple but also some green mixed in from a trip to Kauai in March.

I have a whole slew (20+) of these popping up that are 1-2 inches tall and I'd rather give them away than pot them all up.
If you are interested, you can pick some up from me in Redwood City.

Also have a bunch of miscellaneous other seedling goodies if you stop by.

Hey if you can let me recover for a few days and still have seedlings I'd be interested I guess? Not sure I can keep these alive long term though. I still have one of those Canistel alive. Lives outdoors too. It is like 6 inches still though.

I have way too many to keep alive myself. Also have an overabundance of surinam cherry and jackfruit seedlings.

But, maybe one of these is a genetic mutant and will perform in Northern California. We can always hope.

Hey Jason, send some of those puppies down here where they actually have a chance to grow. I've got a 6 foot tall jackfruit already, they actually do well here.
Tropical gardening in both Kaua'i windward Sunset H2/USDA 12b and Fallbrook Sunset 23/USDA 10b.

You are welcome to them Axel, coordination might be an issue in getting them. How often are you going to be in Fallbrook?

BTW I'm heading off to Maui in a week and going to attempt to get EVEN MORE seeds.
Gotta feed the addiction even if they will never fruit in northern California.
