After some time away due to moving, here is my updated list of available species.
I would like to know that I’ve moved to a place closest to the forest and its marvelous fruits
There are a few downsides: I depend on solar energy so I can be offline for some days, especially during the rainy season
Here is an important notice for buyers:
Rare tropical fruits enthousiasts know well that buying such seeds (recalcitrant for most) is not like buying a common item of consumption online. Tropical seeds need special cares and processes to be shipped a priori.
So after an order is placed, please do not expect to have the seeds shipped out with tracking number in 1 or 2 days.
Usually, shipping delay varies from 4 to 20 days.
I am not growing all the seeds i’m offering for sale, most fruits are picked in the wild and i have to manage fruits ripeness, distance and other things like weather. Also, by the past, I had to manage some eagers buyers that are also uncivil.
I will no longer accept orders from people that can’t wait for a few days to reply to an email and send daily messages like “Hey, where are my seeds?????” without any minimum greeting. In that forum, we are all growing seeds, trees and patience too. A minimum of courtesy will be greatly appreciated too.
I ship worldwide, only by priority airmail tracking. Since the covid crisis, the tracking service is working erraticly, for some cases or periods it may take several days for the first updates.
I’m not responsible if packets are lost or confisced by destinatories customs.
If you think you need special way of shippment (CN22 customs declaration, invoice, etc …) please do not hesitate to ask, as I would do best for you to receive accepted seeds.
Unfortunately, I cannot provide any phyto certificate.
About seeds import permits, some rules ask for seeds to be shipped absolutely free from any material with it. But it is impossible for me to ship recalcitrant seeds without any moist medium: 90% of the seeds will arrive unviable without a good appearance. So, except for the special request, all recalcitrant seeds are packed with moist vermiculite or coco fiber to ensure that the seeds reach you healthy.
Generally, I try to ship more seeds than the quantity ordered, to compensate for a lower germination rate due to eventually an extended delivery time and also because I know it is always a pleasure to receive more than expected. General Chat Chat Lounge
