Argan Tree / See

Anthony starts with ...
Hi you all,
My interest is primarily in plants suitable for arid regions / drought tolerant, but I also grow any nut I can (Macadaemia, Walnut, Almond, Hazlenut & Chestnut.

CAN ANYONE TELL ME IF THEY KNOW OR A SOURCE FOR ARGAN (Argania Spinoza) Seeds, Seedlings, Potter Plants etc.

By the way, I got 4 Bergamot trees from Daley's (which I had been looking for over a 25 year plus period, to the extent that "Proffessional" citrus nurseries considered me a liar because they had never heard of them.

I can get Argania spinosa seed, or you can import them yourself.
They are allowed into Australia. I'm not sure that there is a seller in Aus.

I've got a few Argan trees growing, but no seeds (I sowed them all).
the seed was sourced in Aust....Adelaide I think, someone gave them to me.

They're growing ok through the frosts here at the moment, with no injury.
surprising for an otherwise tropical family (Sapotaceae).

another Sapotaceous nut ... shea butter tree is an arid tolerant savannah species, but better for the northern half of Aus. with cashews.

other arid land nut species worth a look at....Pistachio, Jojoba, but also Stylobasium spathulatun a West Aus native.

Marula (Sclerocarya birrea), a mango relative from Sthn. Africa is bit frost tender for me here.

one I'd really love to get hold of (been looking for years) is the Yeheb nut from Somalia and Ethiopia.

Quandong (Santalum acuminatum) has a very soft, oily, edible nut and very tolerant of drought.
In part because they parasitise other (dry tolerant) trees via their roots.

I think the better growth of the host, the better the growth of the quandong tree.

I haven't tried eating seeds of the related West Aus Sandalwood, but i htink they are edible.

just remembered ...Mongongo nuts (Ricinodenron sp.) and marama beans (Tylosema esculenta) ...i had some seeds somewhere, but i cant find them now ....and Oyster nut (Telfairia pedata).
all probably better in frost free arid/ semi-arid climates

Speedy - your knowledge blows me away as usual! :) Anthony - are you interested in food trees for arid regions or any kind?

Can you eat the fruit of the Bergamot - or do you just use the peel?

You can eat bergamot, in fact the main producers in Italy produce premium product for Israel where it is used in religious festivals but I believe the way that it is prepared is important to them as it has to be kosher BUT the main use is in using the peel for flavouring and perfume.
I am interested in all food producing plants but tend to the arid / drought resistant for obvious reasons
