Can you purchase olosapo seeds/tree in Australia

    11 responses

I was wondering if anyone knows where a person can get hold of olosapo seeds/tree in Australia, or if anyone is willing to share their seed or seedlings with me :)

Any information would be much appreciated.

Thank you

Interesting. Curious to see if anyone is growing these.

Best I can find is this old post: http://rfcarchives.org.au/Next/Fruits/Olosapo/Olosapo11-93.htm

Perhaps a contact with the Rare Fruits Council might come up with something.

To answer your question, yes there are Olosapos being grown here but I'm pretty sure that there is nowhere in Australia that you can buy the seeds or trees.

Someone in Queensland gave me a few seeds late last year and I was told that there are people up north growing them privately.

Those seeds have now grown into the small plants pictured - see My Edibles page also. I am yet to ascertain how well they will do here in Melbourne over Winter.

Hi Cal, Thanks for the reminder. No never had any luck.I think that whoever has any of this plant or indeed if it even exists in Australia is holding onto them.Sometimes sourcing from the north can be very difficult. Have you had success yet.If so please let me know.Thanks David.

Hi David, unfortunately not. The closest I have got is finding Cape Trib farm grows the fruit but I don't believe they send out the fruit or seed.
