I've heard their in country and established, but can't find out where.
I guessed you would have them.
But anyway there should be more around in a few years time.

I only have a few and all are spoken for, sorry. It should be more widespread in 5-8 years time with many 'spreaders' obtaining seedlings recently. In a few short years I hope to be rolling in the three holy 'cam's - Cambuci, Cambuca and Cambui ;)

Hi all. Have just been checking out cambuca fruits and wondered if anybody has any seeds yet, as this post is pretty old.

I've found some available from Hawaii but they aren't cheap and postage is massive too. Has anybody brought in seeds from these guys successfully?

Fruitlovers are usually very reliable. At this time of year however, you need to ask for priority mailing such as registered or couriered mail so they dont sit around at the mail sorting centre drying out at this busy time. At normal times it is quick enough and I get great results from most of their seeds here in New Zealand. It is important to use proper seed raising mix and possibly a heat tray or similar.

I recently also got some Hybrid Jabs that took 4 weeks. Some are still alive. It is the slow mail season to blame. 90% of the time they arrive within a week and grow well.

thanks for that info.
I was considering ordering soon so they had more chance of getting through - with less attention - but the potential delay doesn't sound good.
Not sure I can risk it right now, but I see that they have short timeframes of availability too.....

I have one small spare cambuca. It was a slower grower than the other ones that went into the ground, but is starting to get a move on now. There is always one that misses the previous warm season and waits through the winter until they get growing.

Would you be willing to part that slow grower 'the poster formerly known as'? I'm more than happy to forward you postage and some moolah too!
You can contact me on fishriddle at hotmail dot com, or I can get in touch if you prefer.
Thankyou to Mlk T1 also for that information. I will get in touch with Oscar regarding the import biz as I've lost a few seeds...

I see BJ from another thread that you might be heading to Tropical Fruit World sometime soon for sapotes?
I could perhaps meet you there as I'm just down the freeway, or maybe I could pick up some fruit and send it if you're unable to make it.
I have some - pretty small but strong - P. ligularis seedlings that I could trade, along with different paw paws, and some smallish achachas. Most of my stuff is this seasons growth or in the ground.
What do you reckon? My email is above. Cheers,
Allan

Finally after 4months they have finally germinated, and it seems all of them have started to come up.

So I'll have 6 to give away soon, if a disaster doesn't hit.

My latest acquisition, coccinea kadsura.

Anyone else growing this? Ha! Just kidding. Pretty vine, dioceous apparently so hopefully my three will be able to tango and bear some fruit eventually. No way I'll eat it of course, but its an interesting curio. Roots are very similar to that of black sapote, but are not black.

Cute fruit - look like mini pindaiba.

Just received a few seeds of naucleopsis and lacunaria. Have heard these are some of the best yet-to-be-domesticated fruits, so here's to the wait!

I have just the one cambuca left. I repotted it last night, as it was the runt of an early litter and got knocked back before but is finally starting to come good again. I hope the rather rough repotting (the mix had turned to crubly clay) wont set it back too much again.

My cambuca are at least 2 winters old. Not even a hint of a problem with the cold here. I'll try to post pictures. A friend whom I gave plants to at the same time and who takes much better care of his plants than I do mine, has them at about 3-4ft tall now, while mine are only 1-2ft tall. Damn that bayside magic dirt!

Yeah Bruce, apparently they are good to eat but I'm not sure if I'm game. Found a few toxicology reports which seem to indicate there's nothing nasty in them. Supposed taste like langsat.

It might be too tropical for Brisvegas anyway. Find out soon enough I guess.

Kadsura coccinea.

You won't have any trouble with Kadsura coccinea up there. We are growing them down here too. Still have a few left in pots for the past couple of years.

They are very hardy and easy to grow in Melbourne's climate although it prefers part shade. The fruit is supposed to be a sedative. Cheers!

Linton is yours the red or white/light green form? Mine is the red kind, and they aren't much bigger than your seedlings. We will be able to trade cuttings in the future no doubt.

I recieved the seeds too--thankyou (I'm starling). I have yours ready to go--do you want to try a bayberry as well? I have a grafted black carbon you can have.

Linton says...
About the Kadsura coccineas that I have, I assume they are the red fruiting type. The nursery down here was just selling one type as Kadsura coccinea and I was under the impression that "coccinea" refers to the red colour. I've only seen pictures of green fruit on other sub-species like Kadsura ananosma. Yes, it will be good to trade cuttings later to add to the mix.

Yes, I would love a grafted black carbon, that would be fantastic! There are only the common type of seedling Bayberries available here and I think it will be at least another 10 years before I see any fruit on them. Hopefully the Black Carbon will fruit sooner. Cheers!
