Hi Michsu,

You can find a Biriba plant at the following nurseries:

Ong Nursery(San Diego)

Ben Poirier(San Diego)

Roger Meyer(Fountain Valley)

California Tropical Fruit Trees(San Diego)

Norman Beard(Santa Barbara)

Mimosa Nursery(Anaheim)

Mimosa Nursery(L.A)

etc.

Thanks, I can get you scion wood from a cold hardy Rollinia that has fruited in California. Don't listen to what everyone says, Norman, my friend fruited a Rollinia in Santa Barbara! See this thread on the tropical fruit forum,

Oh, okay

Scions from Normans Rollinia tree are free but you cover the shipping. The best rootstock for Rollinia is Rollinia… it is hard to find other Rollinia species to graft onto, and if you did it wouldn't be worth it because they are so rare :|.

Thanks,

Of the 7 places mentioned, 6 are in Southern California! Haha
cherimoya plants can be hard to source in California let alone Biriba. Too far away is different for each one, and it takes an hour to get anywhere in LA anyway right? 2 other options for Biriba would be Green Scene in Fullerton in April from some of those sellers previously mentioned or online Ethan at Red Sea gardens might have one to ship to your doorstep.

haha, yeah, everything is too far here in Los Angeles.. :D Thanks for the new information! I'm already emailing Ethan, and he said that he might have a biriba for sale soon.. well, at least a 3 gallon one or bigger.. he told me about that Fullerton Green Scene where you can meet him in person and just pick up the plants? That sounds good :D

It's always a good plan to get your plants from Ethan. Instead of bombarding his email with questions , I'm looking forward to harassing him in person next weekend myself. :D :D :ugeek: :ugeek:
